I had Essure in September 2009. I had cramping that did not go away for weeks. One week after implantation, I experienced a feeling of numbness where my right tube is. I went back to the Ob/gyn that did the procedure and was told that Essure could not cause this. Since that time I have horrible periods and pain on my right side.
Over the years I experienced more and more symptoms. I had bloating, fatigue, dizziness, trouble sleeping, joint pain, nausea, back pain, and weight gain. I chose to have them removed in January 2013 after doing some research and finding a doctor that did removal. Best decision I ever made. It has been 4 months since removal and I feel great. No one should have to go through this. I had Essure because it was not invasive and ended up having surgery to remove them.
