Since having the Essure procedure, I’ve had two week long periods monthly. They are consecutive and each is preceded with separate PMS symptoms such as pain, cramping, migraines, mood swings.
When I told my doctor about this, my concerns were dismissed as if this was just a normal thing. I was tested for anemia and since I was found not to be anemic, the doctor acted as if that was all that the subject was closed.
I live in fear of migration of these coils.
I would add that I don’t intend to let the subject drop with my doctor but will inquire if the location of the Essure coils is the same and if and when removal is a viable option.
