My name is Toniesha Im a single mother of 4 and I had the essure procedure done in 2010 after I gave birth to my last child in 2009. I have had so many issues as far as my monthly cycles changing at first they would be light and I would basically spot for about3 days then have 2 days of a moderate flow then spot a day or two. Then they became heavy, very clotty and uncomfortable. I would cramp very bad and sometimes thought I was having a miscarriage. I’ve also came up pregnant twice. Once two years later then again four years later… My first pregnancy I aborted for my own personal reasons. I’m not a believer in abortion I was going through a nasty divorce from my abusive ex husband and was very stressed and unable financially to afford another child so I made my choice . The second pregancy while having essure I was very back and forth with the decision of aborting my baby but I later found out during a second ultrasound only 3 1/2 weeks later that the baby did not develop fully so I had a DNC performed …. I have been so uncomfortable and irritable since I’ve had it!!! My periods are painful, I have constant back pains, migraines and I have struggled with my weight the last 4 years since I’ve had this birth control. Im currently set up to get a tubular but I wish I could have this removed!!! I can not take the risk of getting pregnant again and going through the emotional issues that came with my last pregnancy. I wish I would’ve known all the things i know now before i received it. And I also had a failed pap and they told me that I may have cancer cells on my uterus following up on that in a few days… Praying for a positive outcome!!
