Thanks for your query.

“Essure insert” when placed in the fallopian tubes prevent the sperms from reaching the ovum and help avoid pregnancy.

As you have got symptoms of pregnancy it is better to get tested and confirmed that you are not pregnant.

The best method to confirm is getting a blood test for pregnancy done and it is called Beta HCG test(beta human chorionic gonadotrophin). This is a hormone which gets increased if there is pregnancy.

I would suggest you to get tested and if the test confirms that you are not pregnant then you can consider the bleeding as your normal periods.

Hope this answer is helpful to you. In case of any other query please write back.

Take care and regards
