Hi i'm Ashley. I have a 2.5 year old, Maddox and am expecting our second son any day now. I've had a horribly complicated pregnancy. I've been in pre-term labor since 33.5 weeks and on meds since. I am in more pain than I can even describe. The last half of this pregnancy has literally been the worst months of MY ENTIRE LIFE. As much as we'd like a little girl, I don't think my body was meant for carrying children. We may adopt years down the road if that is what God has in store for us. Anyway, I am trying to decide if I want to get a tubal during my c-section or not. I have read and heard so many horror stories about how the tubal can cause horrible pain and on-going hormonal issues. I was looking for some opinions from anyone who may have had it done and I thought this was possibly a good place to ask! Thank you so much!

huge thanks to Jaidynsmum for my lovely siggy!

I got a lot of the horror stories too.
They exist but they arent the majority...kwim?

You cant base your decision on what others went through cuz you arent them.

That being said...I had a tubal after my 3rd c/section. It was done in like 5 mins I swear...went really fast.

I had no issues til after about a year and then my periods shifted a bit. Like some months they'd be heavier and others lighter and my incision pain intensified a bit too. But none of it was horrifying or anything other than an annoyance. Its still that way and my youngest is 3 1/2.

My hormones are shifty but liveable. My experience overall has been just fine and normal from others Ive chatted with and Ive had no regrets whatsoever.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

I haven't had my tubes ties so I can't help there.

I'm so sorry your pregnancy has been rough on you. Rough pregnancies is one reason why my DH and I are done having children.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

I wouldn't do it. It's hard to make a decision to not have anymore while you are pregnant, especially during a difficult pregnancy.

I did have a tubal with my c-section and I would recommend waiting. I had more pain than I had with my other c-sections. Plus all the hormones are all over the place after you have a baby. My periods are different now than they were, much heavier and just different.

I would wait. Give it some time after you've delivered and the trauma of a difficult pregnancy is behind you and then decide if you are really ready for something permanent that can't be undone. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!!

Thanks Jaidynsmum!!

I'd have to agree with the previous poster, give it a bit of time.

I knew my 5th was my last but was still really glad I got my tubes tied on my own time, when I wasn't hormonal or anything.

I got mine tied 5 years ago, and never have had any issues.

I had mine tied during my c section. My periods are actually better, they last a little longer (regularily i had it for 3 days, now its 4 or 5) but its less painful, the pain of healing from my section with a tubal, was actually alot easier on me then my first 2 sections. (The day my daughter & I were released from the hospital, we shopped all day, with my mom, SO & my 3 sons)

I say go with your gut, I saw it as pointless to have surgery, only to heal and then have another surgery, so I did it all at once. I don't regret doing it, but I'm sad that that part of my life is now over. It takes some getting used to, but I don't think I'd do it any other way.
