I had the Essure procedure done five years ago . I wanted to have av tubal ligation but I was told that I had too much scar tissue from a previous cesarean. My doctor recommended Essure as an alternative. I was told it was painless. Since having the procedure I have experienced cramping and excessive bleeding. I recently had a period that lasted for 26 days. I went to my doctor and was told that I may be pre menopausal and the only sure easy to so the bleeding would be to have a hysterectomy.
I am 39 years old and have never had anything wrong with my menstrual cycle until I had the Essure procedure. I was given progesterone to stop the bleeding temporarily so that I could have a ultra sound and a biopsy the following week. As I left the doctors office there was a huge poster advertising Essure and I began to wonder if the Essure had anything to do with what I was experiencing. I Googled Essure and found there are hundreds of women experiencing the same things and worst. My biopsy came back negative and the ultra sound was good as well. I asked specifically if my Essure implants were all in place and was told yes. I feel like doctors are covering up something. They make money on promoting product’s that are unsafe.
