Essure done on monday, spotted but now bleeding like normal period, my period is a week early does this procedure usually bring it on?
It's possible: I usually give my patients Progesterone supplements to thin out the endometrial lining for the essure procedure. Once it's placed, it's common to have a withdrawal bleed (early menses) from the Progesterone withdrawal. The procedure itself can cause spotting if a cervical block is placed (injections into the cervix). Overall, I wouldn't worry & don't forget your hsg in 3 months. ...Read more

I had essure procedure in october 2013 Last period was july 23rd 2016. Been having sex alot in this last month. No period so far. Always hot & peeing?
Problems with period? I am 25 but have always had problems with my period. When I get them they are very heavy but I used to skip them for months at a time. Last year in may I had to get the depo-provera shot before I could get the essure procedure done.
The: The depo-provera effects on ovulation are gone after 6 months so that is probably not it. Coagulation problems are a possibility and easy to check, but unlikely if you never had these issues before. It is likely you are experiencing problems with irregular ovulation (anovulation), so an evaluation would be advisable for hormonal causes (thyroid, prolactin levels, etc.) or anatomical causes (polyps, fibroid, etc.). If everything fails or the evaluation is negative you may want to consider going on the pill for 3-6 mo to regulate you back again. ...Read more
