Please be aware of the possible complications and side affects of a tubal litigation. I was going to have mine done until a close friend shared her experience after her tubes were tied. She is on a mix of constant meds to try to help with the side affects of PTLS. My Dr never mentioned 1 possible side effect from have my tubes tied so I was shocked when my friend told me her story and I started researching it and finding that she was by far not the only one. It was not worth the risk to me in the end so my husband and I decided that it would be him that would get fixed one day.
You will have a sore belling for a few days. That is usually it. There are no scientific studies that support the Idea of any sort of posts tubal syndrome as another person suggested. Sometimes people regret their decision. And their mind is a powerful thing. there can, as with any surgery, be internal scarring, but that is not usual.
Quoting JacknJill: I had a c section and my tubes tied exactly 4 weeks ago. I feel it took me a little longer to recover from this c section than the last but I've had absolutely no side effects nd do not regret my decision. I am 30 and have three bio kids two being twins.
I'm getting my tubes tied in the hospital after baby's born. I'm not having a c-section (knock on wood), so this will be my first experiene with abdominal surgery, so I don't have any experience to draw from. We'll see how it goes! (: Best of luck.
From what little time I spent looking at PTLS, it didn't look remotely legit. 50+ symptoms of one syndrome, fine print at the bottom of ".org" sites that say that these symptoms could be caused by anythng else, including anemia, diabetes, etc etc, and asking for donations? When the Mayo Clinic, adds it to their list of risks, or other respected healthcare organizations like the WHO, NIH, Hopkins, etc list it in the risks, I'd take it more seriously. Especialy when even google has "post tubal ligation syndrome myth" as one of the search options. Now, if my OB said "no side effects", I'd find a new doctor. http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/tubal-ligation/basics/risks/prc-20020231
