On essure implant. Had heavy bleeding, stopped, bad cramps, brown discharge. Blood test negative. Suggestions?

I got the essure implants in July 2011 I bled heavy and non stop for 18 months. In November of 2012 my period stopped, completely. Since then I have had 4 negative pregnant tests 1 negative blood test, 2 hormone and thyroid tests. Hormones are normal and so is thyroid. Recently I have started cramping really bad and I have brown skin flake discharge. I'm only 30 and have been having horrid gynecological issues ever since my last pregnancy. The cramps are so bad tonight I want to rip out my uterus!

Hi thanks for your question.
Abdominal pain, cramps and bleeding are side effects of ensure method of tubal ligation, but amenorrhea is not side effect of ensure method of ligation. Since your hormonal profile, thyroid levels are normal and pregnancy test negative some other cause of amenorrhea has to be there and which needs to be investigated. I would suggest you consult a gynecologist who may be able to investigate you for secondary amenorrhea. You may also need a consultation from an endocrinologist.
Hope this answers your question.
