I was 37 years old and my son was about to turn 18 when I decided that I didn’t want nor could I handle more children. I talked to my doctor who told me about this ‘great’ procedure. I knew my insurance coverage was about to run out, and he said it was for the best if I truly wanted no more children. I had the procedure done on Christmas eve. I woke up in the most horrible pain ever. I felt sick, but attributed it to the meds. I went home and it hurt to move, walk or was near imposible to get comfortable. After a few days I thought, well, I’m still cramping but I’m getting better. Fast forward to June. I have cramps every day. I’m moody. I get horrible headaches. I do not feel right. I was not informed of the possibilities of side effects. My 3-5 day periods are now weeks long. Not normal in any way at all. I hate how I feel, and if I could do it all over again I would NEVER have done this procedure!!! I’m terrified things are going to get worse. And I no longer have health coverage, so I’m paying out of pocket for everything. If I could save one woman from going thru this procedure I think this wouldn’t be a waste. Please, please, please! Do NOT do this procedure!!! Save yourself from the problems that comes along with it… save yourself from health issues, hormone issues, intimacy issues and much more!
