Anyone else have this problem after getting their tubes tied?

Since i got my tubes tied my periods are now ridiculously heavy. The cramping isn't any worse but the bleeding is insane. We are talking about absolutely having to change tampons(the super ones) roughly every two hours for two days and then the next 3days seem to be normal and then its over. Just wondering

  • Yes. Google "PTLS" you'll find a lot of answers.

  • Ihave heard of ppl complain but i dont understand how it could correlate, unless you went off another form of birth control. I havent had any issues since having mine done but it hasn't been very long

  • I had mine done last July and haven't noticed a difference, but I've only had my period a couple times since I stopped breastfeeding.

  • I have had periods like that but more like my whole menstrual life. Yesterday I got an endometrial ablation done because my lining was abnormally thick. I hope this cures the anemia that was causing my health problems. Right now I have cramps.. not fun. Just got to heal and hope it improves from here on out. oh, my tubes were tied almost 5 years ago.

  • I"m 36 and I go thru this every month my cramps are literally so bad they are worse than labor pains they bring me to tears and i'm bed ridden. Monday they are going to give me my options what to do and what choices I have. I've had blood work and anemia and I've also had a vaginal ultrasound. I now know it was a big mistake to get my tubes done.

  • I have no idea. Your dr. should have talked to you about side effects though...
