I chose to get the essure due to the circumstances of my life. I am only 23 years old but have 4 children. I thought I wouldnt want anymore children, didnt realize I would regret the choice of having the procedure done. The day of my procedure i was told that it would only be a quick procedure. Well the procedure lasted quite a long time and i was in extreme pain through the entire procedure, it took them at least an hour or longer. I was on bed rest for weeks i couldnt move or anything. It has been well over a year and i still have sever abdominal pain and pelvic pain. It is extremely difficult to be sexual with my partner due to the excessive amount of pain that i endure during sex. My menstrual cycle hasnt been the same, theres been months that i dont even get my period and when i do its completely abnormal. I have been pregnant twice, and miscarried, and even though people look at my funny for already being so young and having four children it devestated me, its already very depressing that im told that it is not possible for me to have this reversed as much i wish it was, im in constant pain. I would strongly agree not to have this procedure done, the side effects are extreme, and only plays into the regret!!!!!! The pain is unbearable at times. This was the worst most regretted choice i have ever made. I hope woman think twice before undergoing this procedure. ITS NOT WORTH IT!!!!
