Tubal ligation question

Who on here has had their tubes tied? Did you have any complications? I'm getting mine done around july after my paraguard is taken out (wish I had it done as soon as my daughter was born, but I was unsure at the time if I wanted another baby)

  • I had mine done a little over a year ago. I was very nervous because I had never had surgery before, but really it wasn't bad. It was a simple day surgery, I checked in at 7 am and was discharged at 11 am. The surgery itself took about 45 minutes. They did two one-centimeter incisions, one in my belly button and one just above my pubic hair. They gave me a prescription for percocet which I filled but ended up discarding because I didn't have any real pain, just some mild discomfort. I was back on my feet doing household stuff that same day, although I was still a little groggy from the anesthetic. I felt 100% back to normal the next day and had no pain in my incisions as they healed. I have no complaints at all about the procedure and have had no side effects. I've found it very liberating sexually to not have to worry about pregnancy any more.
