I just signed the paperwork to get my tubes tied...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
And im scared. Ive heard a lot of horrible stories about the pain afterwards and painful menstrual cycle ect ect. I know it is 200% what I want but im scared.

I should add that im having a csec so I expect recovery to be painful but im more concerned about how it will effect me afterwards.

Mine were cut tied and burned. I have ptls. I am 24.

Quoting MrsErdos2011:

I wonder how many women with ptls actually had their tubes tied versus just having them cut and burned.

Quoting Bknotnobody:

I got mine done, and my periods are shorter, and cramps are much better. Though I take vitamins, probiotics and a vitamin b pill. Which the latter of the two are apparently good for minimizing cramps. *shrugs* Either way, I havent had much of an issue. It's been a little over a year.

What people dont say about PTLS is that even with age some of your symptoms for periods and such can change. So that MIGHT be their case, and they attribute it to PTLS. Granted Im no doctor. So do some research and come to your own conclusion. :)

I have quite a few friends and family members who have theirs tied and never had any issues. That doesn't really answer your questions, but it's encouraging. :)

I had mine done 3 years ago at the same time as they were removing a cyst off my ovary. I had such bad periods for about 6 months after and I gained about 20lbs. I've since lost the weight and my periods are about 3 1/2 days long and the most regular they've ever been. I regretted it at first but now I'm very happy I had it done.

This is why my husband got a vesectomy. I was scared to have my tubes tied because my mother had such problems afterwards.

 It's not that bad, at least it wasn't for me. I had mine done when my daughter was born 17 months ago. It was a little more difficult for me because I didn't have a c-section, so I had both the scar from the tubal and the one from the episiotomy. It was very painful for the first week, I won't lie. Getting up and down, walking...even just rolling over in bed hurt enough to make me cry. But in the grand scheme of things, a week isn't all that bad. After that I started to heal quickly and had no side effects. My periods are a little rougher than they used to be...I bleed heavier, but it is only 4 days long when it used to be 7. So that's not a bad trade off.

All in all, I am super happy I had it done. It has worked well for me.

That's what I mean. Would you still have it if they had just been cut and burned? What if has something to do with putting the clips on.

Honestly its just cause my insurance covers it his doesn't and ill be opened up anyway.

Quoting Anonymous: See, I don't understand this crap.



Why not have your husband get a visectemy?



It has WAY less side effects than a tubal.



Why do women subject themselves to this surgery just so their husband can still feel manly? Why go through this surgery if you are so terrified of the very real (and very scary) possible side effects?
