I had the Essure procedure performed around 2009 or maybe 2010. I have very heavy periods that last up to 4 or 5 weeks having to wear 2 maxi pads per changing, severe cramps. Sometimes I don’t have a period for up to 4 or 5 months. I have been tested for menopause and I am not there yet. I truly believe that my problems are due to the Essure procedure.
