I was 46 and looking for a simple form of birth control. I assumed my doctor would prescribe the pill in one form or another. After a lengthy discussion he brought up the Essure procedure, saying it was a no brainer. It all sounded so easy, simple and permanent with 100% effectiveness!
After a little thought and cursory research I scheduled the procedure. It was quick and simple in mmy doctors office. The fact that it was done in his office really put me at ease! It was relatively painless and I only had some bleeding for a day or two. Then all systems go. No pain no worry for the rest of my life right?!
The first period was pretty normal but the second period came early which never happened before but whatever. Then each month the periods got longer,heavier and closer together. I never had much crampi g or discomfort with my periods my whole life but wow did I know what other wdeomen were talking about now. I kind of felt like I was catching up on all the pain I had been lucky enough to miss .
After many trips to the doctor. Sometimes emergency visits. He suggested a uterin eblasion wouldsolve my constant bleeding and pain. I went for it right away. Anything to stop my misery and pain. Not to mention embarrassment at bleeding thru my heavy duty hospital size overnight maxipads at work and my kids school. Hard to explain to my sons teacher.
The eblasion was supposed to stop the blessing to for years but guess what ? One month later it starts. After a few months the bleeding is back! Heavier than ever and non stop. Now we tried several different pills to slow the bleeding to no avail. My only option is a radical histerectimy. No more uteris no more overies. Instant menopause!
