Hi my name is Breeanne I’m 27 years old and have 3 babies and I to have had the essure done after my youngest turned 1.
I knew that I did not want anymore children. So in July 2012 I got the essure done. I was put under and when I woke up it felt like I had a c-section all over again they had me on 3 different pain med to give me comfort but I still felt pain after I got home. I was in so much pain and I was never told I would be, so I was very scared.
I was in pain for 3 weeks and bled for that period of time. I called the dr twice during this time and I got the run around and was told it was normal. I go to a different dr now and he doesn’t like the fact that my periods are 10 days long which before the procedure, I was fine. I had a 28 day cycle and my period were very light and only 4 to 7 days long. Now they are very heavy and 10days long and very painful and even after my period is over I am still moody and cramping all the time. My cramps get so bad that I have to take 4 motrin to help it and I cant lose weight.
In the past I never struggled on losing weight now I am. My husband is getting frustrated because my sex drive is there but it hurts when we try anything so I’m afraid to. I wish I could just take this crap out of me.
They make it sound like a walk in the park before you get it done and it’s now something I regret with every bone in my body that I got this done.
