I had the Essure done in October 2011. They had a hard time with the left side going in. I was told it would not hurt. It was very painful. Since then I have extremely painful cramps during menstrual cycle and I have a very heavy bleeding. It is so painful it goes all around lower stomach to back and down to my knees. I have bad headaches and extremely tired. I don’t want to have sex anymore. I am very unhappy with it. I wish I had never had it done. I use to play outside with my children and since then I stay to tired to want to do it anymore.
