Hi my name is Jamie Arnold and I’ve had the essure done and I regret it. Since Ive had it, Ive had migrains like no other a heavy flow and painful cramps and stomach issues. I went to my OB asking them to remove it, and I was told there was no way it could be done, unless I wanted more children. Ive gained weight and am always tired. My sex drive has also gone way down since having this proceedure done. I know Im not alone in any of this. And If I could warn everybody about this and tell them to stay away, I would. It was the worst thing Ive could’ve done to myself. If there was a way for it to be removed,Ill be first in line. And Im so sorry for anybody else who is going through this. I feel as though Ive lost part of who I was because of migrains, cramps, aweful periods and the feeling someone is inside my body pulling my insides. If anything can be done, I hope its soon. I hate feeling like this month after month.
