Do you have your tubes tied?

Are there any complications? I'm done with hormone BC, I just can't stand it. Does having a tubal increase the risk on any cancers? ...and where do the eggs go when you ovulate?

  • No way. I heard the menstral cramps are a lot worse when you get them tied. and the can become untied and there is a possibility that you can still get pregnant.

  • I've had mine tied for years and never had a problem. I have no clue where the eggs go though.

  • Hubby had a vasectomy, maybe talk it over with your Hubby and see if he would be willing to go that route. GL

  • Nope. It can self reverse like a vasectomy. So I refused to get it. Instead I got Essure. I love it. I recommend it. As for the eggs, the body just reabsorbs them.

  • MrsLeftlane,
    I have a scheduled C-section planned. My DH is fine with a vasectomy and we may go that route, especially if there are less complications after the fact.-OP

  • Purpleducky,
    I am looking into essure as well, I've heard excellent things. I may start another post to get a better feel. My only concern is that its still fairly new.-OP

  • I had mine done almost 8 years ago, no problems here. My period is about 3 days with the first day being the worst. I had it done right after the birth of our 3rd child. It was a small incision under my belly button that you cant even see. No pain or anything other than the normal pains after birth. Depending on how they tie them they can come undone but mine were burnt and a section removed from each so I don't think they will grow back and unburn themselves to reattach. Years ago they just tied them and yes they did come untied. You do have a risk of tubal pregnancy. The egg is reabsorbed back into the body. As far as cancer, no.. no more risk than normal.

  • oh and my dr snips and cauterizes the tubes. no chances of them coming untied.

  • I had mine done almost 4yrs ago-- at the same time my last child was born by c-section. My Dr. did the snip and cauterize, so no chance of them reversing.
