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've also heard loads of horror stories. Since I had natural births we decided against it for me.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

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!!

Just out of curiosity, what ages were you when you got the procedure? I'm looking into it myself but I've heard that you can be refused the surgery if the doctor deems you "too young".

I'm a bit miffed because I think I can decide for myself how many children I want, despite my age. I know my family is complete and I couldn't be happier.

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

I do not. DH and I both decided that I would not get mine tied since I had the baby. He can get snipped. I dont need anything else done.

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.

Yes if you want to tied your tubes to prevent from pregnancy that is called Tubal Ligation and this is the best way for birth control.

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.

I had mine done after my 3rd kid at 23. I did have some change...moodier, worse cramps and heavy bleeding. Sometimes it is still that way

I had a tubal done during my csection 5 years ago. I have since gotten a longer period (used to be 3 days from start to finish, now it's closer to 7) the pain has gotten only a little worse, but it appears I have developed some other medical issues that may or may not be caused by the tubal.

I've never had additional pain with my period since getting my tubes tied.
