For those who had your tubes tied...

I want to get my tubes tied when I have my repeat c section but while doing my research online I ran across Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome. For those why have had your tubes tied did you get bad symptoms afterwards or have you been fine ever since? We really want a more permanent birth control but if it is common to have bad symptoms afterwards I may have to stick with the pill or Nuva Ring. (Dh getting snipped isn't an option)

Thanks ladies!

I had Essure done a year ago and have had an awesome experience with it! No down time afterwards and no side effects at all. I am VERY happy with my descision! I used to use Nuvaring, I'm so happy I'm off! Good luck on your descision

 I've had bad symptoms ever since. I had it done 21 months ago, when I was 21. I guess it's more common the younger you are. Also, the younger you are when you get it done, the higher the chance is of it failing.

I had mine done during my c section and the only side effect is i have more clotting and a little more cramping probably from the clotting.  I also heard of PTLS but never experienced it.

I had my tubes tied 13 years ago.  Not one single side effect.
