C-section or no C-section for a tubal

I want a tubal when this baby is born. I have been doing some research online and it says I can either do it during a c-section, or 2 days after a vaginal birth. So my question is, which is better?

I would prefer a vaginal birth, but I am not sure I would want surgery right after one. It seems like it might be better to have it all done in one shot. Idk though.

And yes I will be talking to my OB tomorrow about it, I just wanted some personal opinions and experiences before then.

I did it during my CSection only because I HAD TO HAVE a c section done. Otherwise, noooo way would I elect to have a c section .The pain and the pain lasted for a week!
But thats me.

See thats what I wasnt sure of. Is it the same pain and surgery type if you do it without a csection? Because to me, it doesnt make sense to have a csection like surgery two days after birth, if it is basically the same as just having a csection, why not do both at once? But if itsnt the same surgery type procedure, then obviously I want to opt for the less painful lol

I'd rather do the vaginal birth, then the tubal. It's less risk for the baby and not as much cutting on you.

 I had a tubal done the day after my daughter was born. She was born around 11:30 at night I had the surgery done the next morning @ 8am. I delivered vaginaly. I hope that helps. FYI my scar is way tiny too.

um no should EVER choose a C-section on purpose!!! NEVER-  C sections are for emergencies!

And the tubals today are done via laproscope so it's considered "band-aid" surgery- not too bad. don't worry about that...

NEVER get C-sections on purpse!!!!!

Did you have any pain and trouble getting around like you would for a csection?

i had a section then tubal .. and it sucked ! it took about 8 weeks before the pain went away and i was told i hurt worse because of the combined section and tubal .. so i would opt for vaginal then tubal if you can .
