I had the Essure procedure done about 2 years ago after having our (surprise) fourth daughter. We were done or shall I sayI was done having babies. I felt as though at 35 that was old enough for me to have a baby plus with the economy, it is financially hard.
The procedure itself went great! No problems, no complications, no down time. That is until a few weeks later. Ever since then I have had really really bad cramps in my abdomen especially when its time for my period or when I need to go or after going to the bathroom.
My periods were always regular. Now, it ranges from 1 day to 7 days difference. I have had more severe headaches and mood swings since having this done as well. Now after two years of the Essure, I am almost 2 weeks late. I took a pregnancy test today. Guess what, it was POSITIVE! NOT what I wanted to see!
I am 39 yrs old, and have four wonderful and beautiful daughters (18-4 yrs). I did this procedure because I thought it was the best and easiest for me. No surgery required, no down time and above all permanent . Now I am faced with another 9 months of pregnancy and a baby that I had thought I’d never have to worry about! Not to mention the financial strain that this has now put our family in. Did I mention I am a stay-at-home mom and my husband is the only one working?
I am so upset right now. I just don’t know to say or do. My husband is just numb. He doesn’t know what to say. I will not recommend this product especially after searching and reading all the other women’s posts. Wish I had of know all this before I had this done. Thank You for letting me tell my story!
