Anyone have your tubes tied? TMI

Posted by on Apr. 8, 2009 at 4:31 PM

So I had my tubes cut tied and burned after I had my twins 9 months ago. I was using the "pull out method" before I got pregnant with them. Which I know is not very effective but it took over a year to get pregnant with my 2 year old so we just thought i wouldnt happen. We were not trying when we got pregnant with the twins so now we are careful. Even though I have had a tubal he still "pulls out"' My question is does anyone else, I know this is TMI but I like it when he doesnt pull out. I am worried about still getting pregnant. My friend got pregnant 3 times after her tubal. Any advise

 I had my tubes cut, tied, & cauterized(burned) 28 years ago. No pregnancies, no "pulling out", just total freedom.

I did!!! Four years ago, after my fourth baby. I was worried, like you, also. I even talked to my Doctor. He said nowadays, they cut, burn and cauterize them. He had me sign a paper before hand and it said the procedure was "permanent and irreversible". So I don't worry about it anymore. But, if my period is ever late I start thinking..."what if".. but no pretty sure that can't happen. HTH!! Best wishes and Happy Easter!

Thats what I want, freedom- hubby is scared from my friend getting pregnant so thinks I will to. I didnt get it done to worry about it all the time. The more success stories I hear the more likely I am to talk him into Letting go a little :)
