I had the Essure procedure in 2011. after that, I started getting regular migraines and experienced weight gain. I felt very pleased with Essure and never associated my issues with it. i spent the last 4 years visiting doctors and getting tested to find out the cause of my sudden onset of headaches and almost 50 pound weight gain. I still have been Un diagnosed and recently read an article about Essure causing issues, it all makes sense now. All this time I’ve been telling my doctors that this all started shortly after giving birth, which is when the Essure was implanted.
