Having tubes tied?

My SO speaks good English but his words are still a little off. He told me that his mother had his tubes tied and has a big scar across her belly just like when I had my c-section. I thought he said she had a c-section? I don't know but I thought tubal ligation scars were different from a c-section scar.

  • I don't know what he was talking about, but when I had my TL it was microscopic. One small incision inside my belly button and one small one just above the pubic bone. I only had two small stitches, one in each incision. You can't even tell now. Unfortunatly the pain afterward was a lot worse than the actual procedure.
