I had the essure process done 4 years ago. Since the procedure I have had very very heavy periods. I have also experienced headaches. I cant even have relations with my husband anymore because it is painful during and after. I havent been to a doctor yet because I was scared they were gonna tell me I had cancer or something and I didnt want to hear that. But for the last couple of weeks I have been telling my husband maybe I should go to the doctor because the pain wasnt going away.
