In 2010 my gynecologist performed a CONE procedure, removing several layers of my cervix due to abnormal pap smears. He told me that because of the weakening of my cervix, I would no longer be able to carry a child, and suggested ESSURE as a form of permanant birth control to make my life a little more simple. Just a couple months after having ESSURE put in, I stopped having regular periods, and gained a considerable amount of weight. My GYN told me that I would see fewer periods because of ESSURE and assured me that this was normal.
In 2014, I had gone 9 months without a period then ended up having 3 heavy, painful week long cycles in a matter of 7 weeks. Concerned about this, I went to see a new GYN who informed me that I had complex hyperplasia. She believes the ESSURE played a part in this because it kept me from ovulating, which in turn kept me from having periods. The hyperplasia was so advanced that there were concerns about cancer cells forming under all the layers of lining that my body had not been shedding. I ended up having to have several painful biopsies, a DNC, and eventually a full hysterectomy.
In the process of dealing with all of this, I have lost my job, sold most everything I could to make ends meet, and now have to deal with menopause years before I should, all because of Essure.
My advice, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!!!!! It will only cause you harm!
