I got my Essure put in November 2010 and ever since my periods have been all messed up. Sometimes I only have a period once every 3 months and I’m pretty positive it’s causing me to gain weight.I have bad headaches and stomach pains. I went into my obgyn a couple of times and she says there’s no way it is related tp the Essure.All I know is that I’ve never had any of these problems before Essure. My problems might not seem that bad but it is bad to me. It affects my whole life. I just wish I would have opted the tubal. I hate the Essure!
