I joined because I am curious about my mom. She went to the health dept. for her yearly check-up the other day and they told her that her uterus is the size of a three-month pregnant woman. She had her tubes tied during her c-section with my youngest sister 3 years ago. She has also gained 9 pounds since March (3 months) and this is unusual for her. The only thing I don't understand is that she has had her period every month as normal. So the doctors are sending her for an ultra-sound for either a baby or fibroids. She doesn't have any symptoms of fibroids though so I am cofused. Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!Answer Question

There is a ligament that runs near the tube. Sometimes the doctor ties that instead of the tube. This especially happens when a woman get her tubed tied during a c-section delivery. They are in the same area and look the same. I was told this years ago during a presentation about birth control methods.
