Period issues after tubal ligation

I googled the heck out of this, but wasn't able to find any answers...

October 21st, I had my DD. December 8th, I had my tubes tied. I got my first period around December 23rd, and it lasted 4-5 days. Last night, I got my period again. What's the deal? In between I had zero spotting or anything...and all of a sudden I'm bleeding again. Is this normal after having your tubes tied? I'm concerned b/c I've never had this happen before. 2 periods, a week apart...what's the deal?

  • I think all things go wonky after a tubal. I had mine done during my C-section, and my periods have lost their ever loving mind since then. I once went 6 months with no period! Best thing to do is talk to your doctor.

  • Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome is very real, and affects many, many women.... myself included. check out the link- I wish women would research BEFORE this happens to them.

  • ObbyDobbie, you're link is not working.

    It could be your system readjusting or it could be something more. I'd call your doctor and see what they say.
