Not toally related to the group directly, but I have a question. I am currently bf my 16 month old and am 17 weeks pregnant, but my question is regarding getting tubes tied. doctor says hormonally I would be no different, feel no different, etc but I am super sensitive to hormonal changes and have bad periods anyway. So, I have talked to plenty of women, including my mother, who have had their tubes tied and they swear up and down that their tubal ligation procedure caused them to gain weight, feel depressed, etc and just not be the same. I am not concerned with the same symtpoms necessarily that I have heard women have had, but just that doing the procedure may cause major changes in my body that are unwanted. I already need to lose some weight so that is not something I want to have an additional challenge to attaining. Any tips, stories, info is appreciated. Thanks

What a good question! I don't know off the top of my head but I'm going to ask around a bit for you. And me too because now I'm very curious! I've always had really extreme reactions to hormonal bc of any kind also so it would be good to know. I'll let you know what I come up with. Hopefully someone with firsthand knowledge will jump on too. :)
