Hi, I’m a 28 year old woman from Georgia. I had the essure procedure done in 2009. My doctor recommended essure after begging for a permanent birth control. I was Never told about all this horrible side affects. I even did my own research in the required 2 month waiting period. My doctor advised that being only 24 years old, I couldn’t know 100% that I wouldn’t want children later on. So after extensive research and convincing my doctor I was 100% sure, the procedure was completed. Moments after the procedure was done, it felt like I was giving birth again! Unbearable cramping!!!. I asked the nurse if this was normal, I was told Yes, just my body trying to reject the abnormal object. It would ease up within an hour. They were wrong. The pain lasted a complete day. I called to schedule the follow up to insure my tubes were fully blocked. I was informed over the phone my procedure was a success and there would be No reason to do the dye test. I have a history of adhesions and that alone was proof my tubes were blocked. The first 2 years were fine, my periods were shorter and bearable. The last 2-3 years have been not so good. I even had a Laparoscopy done due to stabbing pain on my right side with the doctor not finding anything wrong. I have stomach issues that continue to increase. My stomach is bloated all the time and the best way to describe the pain is my intestines are raw and inflamed . No doctor will believe me there is something wrong.. Thank you for this site and just knowing I’m not crazy is so comforting.
