Has anybody had their tubes tied?

I had my tubes tied about a year ago, when I had my 4th child. Just recently my period has been irregular. I'm still waiting for it to come this month. I read that one side effect from tubes tied is irregular periods. Has anybody ever had this happen? Kimberly

  • Yes, for a while they were... Though I have had a hormonal imbalance, and several other nasty affects from the procedure. It took about a year to regulate, and I'm on a solid 30-32 day cycle now. BUT, I have had strange heavy (hemorrhage) period one month, and then only spotting the next.

  • I had mine tied 5 years ago, and periods have been out of control since then. I once went 6 months with no period.

  • I had the same problem from time to time. I wouldn't get mine one month and the next month it would be heavy and long. Then it would be light and short.
