  • I had it done and it was the best decision of my life! The c-section hurts afterwards of course, but it is nothing to be nervous over. It's great!

  • Glad you asked this question...wish more would respond though.
    I am preggers w/ # 3 ...and this is my last. DH and I decided I would get my tubes tied....( Actually I decided and told DH and he said that was fine )
    So I was wondering the same thing.

  • I had my tubes tied after c-section and the only difference I can tell is that it hurt a little worse afterward and my periods are different but in a good way, I have shorter, lighter periods with very little discomfort, where before my periods where heavy, lasted at least five days and I had serious cramps the whole time. Other than that I can tell no difference in before and after.

  • I had my tubes tied during my c-section back in November. I can't comment much on any long term effects, I will say that there was absolutely no difference in recovery from my first c-section. It only added about 20 min to the procedure.

  • My mom had it done and she got pregnant 2 years after she got it done... needless to say she wasn't to happy about the pain she went through and getting pregnant again
