I had the Essure procedure done in 2008 after my third child. I had an emergency c-section so my doctor went ahead and did it after our discussion of a permanent birth control and had it done on the spot. I have had it for almost 6 years now and what I do know that is different about my body is this, cramps when I never had them and pretty bad the first 2 days. I am extremely heavy. I was always on time every month and had my period for a good 7 days, but never so much clotting, clumps coming out and having to wear a tampon and heavy pad for the first 3 days and change sometimes every hour n half because it would just come out like a running faucet. I have lower back pain and just thought it is my job and my body is changing and that is why I am experiencing these things. I was 33 years old when I got the Essure. I get extremely tired 2 weeks to a week and half right before I start and normal symptoms of breast being tender, but I never bloated this bad. I look and feel like I am 3 months pregnant since I got the Essure 2 weeks before I start my period. I really do not know if all this is because of it, age, or what. I get mild migraines since I had my daughter as well. I was never the kind of person who really even got headaches. I am a very active person and yes have a high tolerance to pain. I do not like taking pills to just make a symptom go away, but this is not normal the way I feel. Doctors just say oh its life changes, circumstances and situational things happening in your body and life, but I tend to not believe all that and know my body very well. I know something is off and not quite right. I recently just developed some kind of lump that over my fallopian tubes and will need to wait for the results of that. Could it be cysts, fluid not sure? I really did not think too much into all of this until my sister and friend got the Essure, was having similar symptoms, and so here I am doing some research and came across this website. I really should have done more homework before getting this, but really trusted my doctor and his professional opinion.
