Im so upset that I chose a procedure that my Doctor assured me that was safe I recently got my essure in july 2013. I have three kids so i knew i have the amount i wanted so i decided to get my tubes tied, i had just had my daughter in may so i went back to my doctor and we talked about essure and the regular tubal ligation. so when he ran down all the facts he was telling me essure no recovery time no problems , and you dont have to get cut and with me having a new born and a three yr old that was perfect. because i stay home with them,and with no recovery time i didnt need no one to come help me, what i know now i would have gotten the regular tubal ligation. now its possible that i can be worst since i had the essure i have bad cramps where i cry at night because they hurt so bad, during the day i do so much i feel them but i try not to think about like everyone else you think its normal. my fiance kept telling me go to doctor i would blow it off likes this normal its my period, my periods can go from light spotting to heavy where im changing pad so much its like changing my daughter diapers and be on for weeks. i have severe moods swings ill be fine then something not right im upset. my legs hurt and cramp when i walk , i have no sex drive at all no more, i cant have a noramal bowel movemtent without my stomach hurting, i have a headache almost everyday, i feel bad that me and my fiance cant enjoy anything, i dont want to do nothing i believe im getting depressed. i have never felt this way ever in my life, the day i was to go to the ultrasound to check the essure i was on my period already a week before the procedure, i had to reschedule so i called the nurse to do so but i still was on my period a whole week after so today i called the nurse again and explained i have severe stomach pain and had a cycle for two and half weeks and told her thats not normal so i asked her is it because of the essure she never replyed all she said was do you want appointment to see the doctor, my heart dropped and i wanted to let her have every piece of a curse word. because that confirmed to me that it was. im writing because my mom seen where they had it on tv and she said dont get it , i told her i have that. she said get it out so how do i do that, i know it possible it can be worst, my doctor assured me that this was a great procedure that nothing goes worng and all my problems i thought were normal are not. thank you so i hope more women see this and dont get the essure because i wish i hadnt.
