Tube tying question

Did you have any major complications after your tubes were tied? Did your periods get worse, did you hurt more? Is it as bad as I have read on some post?

  • I had mine done 3 yrs ago when my youngest was born (scheduled C-section). Ive noticed mine now last longer from 4 days to a full week. They are not heavier though. As for weight gain, I have gained weight but cant really say its all from tubes being tied as I have been going through a major custody battlle for 2 1/2 yrs. So part of its stress related.

  • I got my done 4 yrs. ago too, I did have heavier periods but only in the first couple months. My cramps is the only thing I have an issue with because they've gotten more painful. After the first year I did not get my period for three months, my doc. put me on birth control pills (I was so mad, that's one of the reasons I had it done) anyways I got mine days later I started the pills. I gained weight too but I really don't think that it's because of that.
