Can a tubal ligation cause major depression?

I got my tubes tied 5 weeks ago, and about 2 weeks afterwards I started feeling depressed. I thought it was nothing, but now I am majorly depressed. Can a tubal ligation cause this?

  • Did you just have a baby? Post Partum depression? OR...
    If you did not choose this procedure and it was medically necessary....sure that could cause depression. Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Vitamin B (sublingual) are very effective in treating depression...try might like it.
    Hope you feel better real soon!
