I had the Essure 2012 after I had my daughter who is now 14 months old. Right after having the Essure done I had severe cramping. I have such awful pain on my right side. My hair is falling out my face is breaking out for the first time in my life. I feel dizzy and have very long periods. I do not recommend this procedure to anyone. My doctor did not inform me very well and I was not able to return to work as quickly as promised.
