I had the procedure in may of 2009. I was told that it was a great way to prevent more children. I had bad cramping that made me double over. Right know I have severe abdominal pain and small clumps of blood while not on my period. I want to have them removed, but I don’t have the money to. I also don’t know who I can go to to have them removed. I have been on an emotional roller coaster since.
