has anyone had their tubes tied?

  • It was fine. I mean for about a week or so I felt really bloated and I would highly suggest your friend bring stretchy pants of some kind. The pain is actually in the rib cage more than anything because of the air. GasEx!! Yes, GasEx is a must. But overall, it is not a bad procedure.

  • i had my tubes tied when i had my son, i had a c-section. the biggest problem i have with it is my periods became irregular and alot heavier and clotty. if she is really serious about it she should be fine as long as she knows what comes with it.

  • I had mine tied through my belly button and had an umbilical hernia repaired at the same time. Because it was a double surgery, I had some pain for a few weeks. I agree with the stretchy comfy clothes....that was not the time that I wanted button-up jeans, for example. Just tell your friend to be really really sure this is what she wants.
