Hi. My name is Venus and I had the Essure procedure done in March of 2006 after giving birth to my 5th child, and it was the biggest mistake I ever made! At the time, I felt I was done with having children. After getting it done, I had alot of pelvic pain in which was normal being that there are coils inserted in my falopian tubes. the pain eventually went away and a few months later, I got checked to see if the scar tissue built up in my tubes preventing my eggs from passing ,which suppose to be a good thing! Well, everything was ok until 2 years later, I started feeling a sharp stabbing pain in the area where my tubes are located and every month when mother nature comes, I pass alot of blood clots and it be so heavy, that I have to change my super tampon and pad, yes pad every 3 hours! my period only lasts 2 days, but its the worst two days in my life!!! I pop Ibuprofen and Midol like candy during this time and prior to Essure, I didn’t need any meds during my time of month. Not to mention, I cant loose weight in my waist to save my life! It looks like I’m constantly bloated. I would love to have these god for saken coils removed. I am in pain now as I’m telling tou my story. To the young ladies who is looking for perment birth control, PLEASE don’t get Essure, you will regret it!
