I had this procedure done 2 years ago , after my fourth child me and my husband no longer wanted kids and our family was complete. Before getting this we have discussed the options that i had and going to make a decision like this was already difficult enough but I had told my doctor that I wanted the safest procedure possible with out having any surgery or anything removed, he suggested the Essure we went over the information we were given and it all looked good on paper and from what he told us there no side effects the occasional cramping from getting it done ,so of course I went for it . I didn’t want to have down time with my newborn son at home. After having my son ( a week latter ) I went in for the procedure it took so long for it to actually be done properly the doctor had to cancel his other appointments (for most of the day about 3 hrs) It was horrible but should have just had him stop at that point. Well if I new what I was in store for i would have I have had my menstrual cycle all month for a year non stop (was given pills for that but no reason , now I have it two times a month now for weeks, but still no reason . Cramps in which I’ve never had before now will not stop and noting helps. The coming head ache I used to get I sometimes wish I remember compared to the migraines I have now there is other symptoms as well but my hardest to cope with seems to be the thinning of my hair it saddens me everyday. With all the issues that I have I just get depressed ( I cant afford to have it removed that cost so much ). Please to everyone that is thinking about this please don’t our bodies as women go through so much pain to be able to have kids , let it stop there . To the woman who have got it done I wish you all the best of luck on getting it removed. To the doctors who said its the safest thing , would any of you have your wife daughter or yourself get it done if no why not if its so safe.to the company that makes it please just remove it from the market make a safer alternative please.
