I had my done 26 years ago after my son was delivered by an emergency c-section. I have no regrets and it was one the smartest decisions I have ever made.
Like most women have said, pain was minimal. For me, it felt like something was stretching inside and that hurt if I reached the wrong way, but went away after a few days. The original incision was about an inch and a half right under my "belly button", but as my pregnancy belly when away, and I actually got my belly button back, I don't really have a scar.
I regret having it done every second since I had it done. Some days I want another child, but mostly I don't feel whole. I'm sure that sounds strange, but it is an agonizing feeling. My periods are heavier and more painful, like it's reminding me of my mistake.
Quoting Anonymous:For those who have had them...
How was your recovery?? no issues except for the gas pains in my shoulder. was up and at target 2 days later. i wanted to go the day after but DH and mil wouldn't let me.
Do you regret your decision at all? nope. best decision EVER.
How big is the scar? maybe the length of my pinky nail, right on my bikini line, can't even see it with my underwear on. my belly button has no scar.
I'm so sorry. I completely understand and feel the same way. Not a day goes by that I don't wish I could undo it. :(
Quoting Anonymous:I had mine done 5 years ago . I don't remember recovery time. I regret it all the time. Look up post tubal ligation syndrome. I suffer from almost all of the symptoms.

Recovery was awesome - one day down and then back on the go.I have no regrets. I celebrate with my happy dance every March 15th.I have a tiny scar right by my belly button and another down low that I can't even find.And even though you didn't ask: my periods are lighter and I haven't had a yeast infection like I always got while on b/c. Yay tubals!!
