I had Essure placed in late 2008. From Day 1 I have had nothing but problems. I left the dr office in so much pain and remained in pain for a good week (when I was told this procedure was pain free and few side affects). I went to the dr several times with my complaints & in March 2009 had to get abdominal ablation for endometriosis. The doctor believed that is why I was having so many problems. Soon after that I lost my insurance coverage and was unable to return for any follow up appts. Its has now been 5+ years I have been suffering. I have very heavy periods every single month, sometimes more than one in a month. Sexual intercourse is very very painful and not fun at times. Ifeel sorry for my husband at times, the springs have actually even cut him from time to time :/ I have severe bloating, cramping, pelvic pain on a daily basis. I have had weight gain also. I have zero energy for most of my day… I am a mom of 2 boys. They unfortunately suffer too at times because of my energy loss I am unable to do lots of things with them. This product needs to be removed from being able to damage more females in the future. Please do not get this procedure. I feel I have missed out on so many things because of set backs from Essure. I call it E-Hell!
