I just had my second and last child on April 11, via csection. I also decided to get my tubes tied the same time. So far I have not felt any post pain, except for sharp twinges here and there on my sides.
I was just doing some research on the Internet about possible complications after tubal litigation (I know...I should have done this before I decided to get it done)' and read some stories of many women experiencing bad pains with their menstrual cycles due to the procedure, and have regretted having it done. So it got me worried
So my question is...for those that had gotten it done, were your AF's bad from that point on?? Did you regret getting it done? I'm worried because I don't want to experience pains with my AF's now because I never had a problem with them before.
I know there's a lot of horror stories out there! I had my tubes tied about 5 years ago, and was also a little worried about my period etc, but I haven't had a single problem. So I have no regrets at all.
Of the friends that I know have had their tubes tied, none of them have had issues either.
I had mine tied in December of 2007. The pain and discomfort of my periods has actually decreased since having my tubal. The only complaint I have is that instead of 5 day periods like I had before, they are now 4, PLUS about 1 1/2 - 2 weeks of spotting afterwards. It sucks!!
I just took a class on tubal ligation and they mentioned that some women blame their period change on the procedure, but that there are many other factors to consider as well. Such as, did you just give birth, were you on any hormonal birth control, were there any serious life changes... The procedure shouldn't affect your menstration and if it does you should probably talk to your doctor to rule out any other possibilities.
I think everyone reacts different. I had them tied in sept 2012. I just started my first period 2 months pp a few days ago. I did have cramping a couple weeks ago. Maybe ovulation pain. I have had bad cramping and a constant pain on my left side during my period. I also had to change my tampon every hr due to it being so heave for a couple of days. But that might've been because its first period pp. so we will see next month if I wen get it. Hopefully not lol. Good luck to u
I'm 27. I signed the paper for the tubal when I was pregnant. Me and my husband decided we were done since now we have a son. The doctor even asked me again at the consults as I sure if I was done with being young. He also knew how many kids I had. I said I am done. Then he also asked me again right before surgery!! Lol
Mommy to 5 girls!! Pregnant with #6! Our baby BOY is due 9-26-2012!!
I had a tubal at 34. No changes to my period, however, I did have a ruptured ectopic pregnancy (posted my story on another thread) about a year later. They say you have a greater chance of a tubal pregnancy after a tubal ligation, but the chances are slim. Not slim enough, apparently. A vasectomy is much more effective, compared to the tubal, I was told afterwards by the doctor who did my emergency surgery. So if you have the option, go that route instead. That would be my advice, based on my personal experience.
I was 27 with one child when I had my tubes tied. I started getting really bad periods a few years later and they continued getting worse. I had pretty bad periods as a teen as well though. They tried putting me back on BCP which did not help. I had an endometrial ablation a couple years ago which helped for about a year and then I started getting bad cramping and some spotting. I will have to have a hysterectomy to "fix" the cramping. There is nothing else to try.
I was a single mom at the time so a vasectomy wasn't an option.
