 Have you  had a tubal ligation ? How are your moods since you have had one ? Do you feel you are more "hormonal" since ? I had one a little over 2yrs ago when i had my last DD I suffered the worst PPD after I had her ,went on anti-deppressants and been on them ever since. I am wondering if I will ever be back to my normal self again. If the tubal has something to do with it ? I do not regret my decision not to have anymore children at all .

You need to research post tubal ligation syndrome (PTLS).  What you are going through sounds like PTLS.  I had many symptoms until I had my tubes reversed almost 13 years later.

I have never had mood changes since having my tubal but I do have the worst periods in the history of the world now!!! Ugh, they suck :(

 I had my fallopian tubes actually REMOVED

and then a few years ago they ended up also removing my uterus and my cervix ( still have my ovaries though)

and it has honestly NOT affected my moods at all.

 Yep. I highlighted  in red all that is going on with me since my tubal in August 2007 after baby #3. Also--- I do have Bipolar disorder so some of this was going on before the tubal BUT it all got WORSE after the tubal.

 

*** SYMPTOMS OF POST TUBAL SYNDROME ***

1. Eptopic pregnancy or pregnancy (welll known risk of tubals)

1a.Hot flashes, flushes, night sweats and/or cold flashes, clammy feeling, chills

2. Bouts of rapid heart beat

3. Irritability

4. Mood swings, sudden tears

5. Trouble sleeping through the night (with or without night sweats)

6. Irregular periods; shorter, lighter periods; heavier periods, flooding; phantom periods, shorter cycles, longer cycles

7. Loss of libido (see note)

8. Dry vagina (see note)

8a.Itchy vagina-at time raw like, can radiated from whole area, with absence of yeast infections. (see note)

8b.Color change in vaginal area. (color gets darker - purple/black)

9. Crashing fatigue

10.Anxiety, feeling ill at ease

11.Feelings of dread, apprehension, doom (see note)

12.Difficulty concentrating, disorientation, mental confusion

13.Disturbing memory lapses

14.Incontinence, especially upon sneezing, laughing; urge incontinence (see note)

14a.Prolapse of uterus do to rapid decress in estrogen levels.

15.Itchy, crawly skin (see note

)

16.Aching, sore joints, muscles and tendons (see note)

17.Increased tension in muscles

18.Breast tenderness

18a. Decress in breast mass

19.Headache change: increase or decrease

20.Gastrointestinal distress, indigestion, flatulence, gas pain, nausea

21.Sudden bouts of bloat

22.Depression (see note)

23.Exacerbation of existing conditions

24.Increase in allergies

25.Weight gain (see note)

26.Hair loss or thinning, head, pubic, or whole body; increase in facial hair

27.Dizziness, light-headedness, episodes of loss of balance

28.Changes in body odor

29.Electric "shock" or "stabbing" sensation under the skin.

30.Tingling in the extremities, (see note)

31.Gum problems, increased bleeding

32.Burning tongue, burning roof of mouth, bad taste in mouth, change in breath odor (see notes)

33.Osteoporosis (after several years)

34.Changes in fingernails: softer, crack or break easier

NOTES:

Symptom 1a (flashes) Hot flashes are due to the hypothalamic response to declining ovarian estrogen production. The declining estrogen state induces hypophysiotropic neurons in the arcuate nucleas of the hypothalamus to release gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) in a pulsatile fashion, which in turn stimulates release of luteinizing hormone (LH). Extremely high pulses of LH occur during the period of declining estrogen production. The LH has vasodilatory effects, which leads to flushing.

Symptom 7 (loss of libido) For some women the loss is so great that they actually find sex repulsive, in much the same way as they felt before puberty. What hormones give, loss of hormones can take away.

Symptom 8 (dry vagina) results in painful intercourse

Symptom 8a (Itchy and or raw vaninal area) A normal vaginal pH level is around 4.5. A vaginal pH of 6.0 to 7.5 -- in the absence of a vaginal infection (yeast infection)-- indicates low blood estrogen levels and signals that the woman is menopausal. "The vagina (and whole area) becomes more acidic." http://www.thriveonline.com/health/menopause/seek/info.areyouin.html

Symptom 11 (doom thoughts) includes thoughts of death, picturing one's own death. Feelings of complete dispare.

Symptom 14 (incontinence) reflects a general loss of smooth muscle tone

Symptom 15 (itchy, crawly skin) feeling of ants crawling under the skin, not just dry itchy skin

Symptom 16 (aching sore joints) may include such problems as carpal tunnel syndrome

Symptom 22 (depression) different from other depression, the inability to cope is overwhelming. There is a feeling of loss of self. Hormone therapy ameliorates the depression dramatically.

Symptom 25 (weight gain) often around the waist and thighs, resulting in 'the disappearing waistline'

Symptom 29 (shock sensation) "the feeling of a rubber band snapping in the layer of tissue between skin and muscle. It may be a precursor to a hot flash"

Symptom 30 (tingling in extremities) can also be a symptom of B-12 deficiency, diabetes, alterations in the flexibility of blood vessels, or a depletion of potassium or calcium

Symptom 32 (Burning mouth syndrome) http://www.tambcd.edu/DentalCE/dsc/ARCHIVES/oc93ap94/oct/dscted.htm
