Tubal ligation





Definition

Tubal ligation is a permanent voluntary form of birth control (contraception) in which a woman's fallopian tubes are surgically cut or blocked off to prevent pregnancy.


Purpose

Tubal ligation is performed in women who want to prevent future pregnancies. It is frequently chosen by women who do not want more children, but who are still sexually active and potentially fertile, and want to be free of the limitations of other types of birth control. Women who should not become pregnant for health concerns or other reasons may also choose this birth control method.


Demographics

Tubal ligation is one of the leading methods of contraception, having been chosen by over 10 million women in the United States—about 15% of women of reproductive age. The typical tubal ligation patient is over age 30, is married, and has had two or three children.


Description

Tubal ligation, or getting one's "tubes tied," refers to female sterilization, the surgery that ends a woman's ability to conceive. The operation is performed on the patient's fallopian tubes. These tubes, which are about 4 in (10 cm) long and 0.2 in (0.5 cm) in diameter, are found on the upper outer sides of the uterus. They open into the uterus through small channels. It is within the fallopian tube that fertilization, the joining of the egg and the sperm, takes place. During tubal ligation, the tubes are cut or blocked in order to close off the sperm's access to the egg.

Normally, tubal ligation takes about 20–30 minutes, and is performed under general anesthesia, spinal anesthesia,

In a tubal ligation, a woman's reproductive organs are accessed by abdominal incision or laparoscopy (A). The fallopian tubes are cut and tied (B), cauterized (C), blocked with a silicone band (D), or clipped (E) to ensure sperm is not able to fertilize an egg. (Illustration by GGS Inc.)

)
or local anesthesia with sedation. The surgery can be performed on either hospitalized patients within 24 hours after childbirth or on outpatients. The woman can usually leave the hospital the same day.

Tubal ligation should be postponed if the woman is unsure about her decision. While the procedure is sometimes reversible, it should be considered permanent and irreversible. As many as 10% of sterilized women regret having had the surgery, and about 1% seek treatment to restore their fertility.

The most common surgical approaches to tubal ligation include laparoscopy and mini-laparotomy. In a laparoscopic tubal ligation, a long, thin telescope-like surgical instrument called a laparoscope is inserted into the pelvis through a small cut about 0.5 inches (1 cm) long near the navel. Carbon dioxide gas is pumped in to help move the abdominal wall to give the surgeon easier access to the tubes. Often the surgical instruments are inserted through a second incision near the pubic hair line. An instrument may be placed through the vagina to hold the uterus in place.

In a mini-laparotomy, a 1.2–1.6 in (3–4 cm) incision is made just above the pubic bone or under the navel. A larger incision, or laparotomy, is rarely used today. Tubal ligation can also be performed at the time of a cesarean section .

The tubal ligation itself is performed in several ways:

  • Electrocoagulation. A heated needle connected to an electrical device is used to cauterize or burn the tubes. Electrocoagulation is the most common method of tubal ligation.
  • Falope ring. In this technique, an applicator is inserted through an incision above the bladder and a plastic ring is placed around a loop of the tube.
  • Hulka clip. The surgeon places a plastic clip across a tube held in place by a steel spring.
  • Silicone rubber bands. A band placed over a tube forms a mechanical block to sperm.

Tubal ligation costs about $2,000 when performed by a private physician, but is less expensive when performed at a family planning clinic. Most insurance plans cover treatment costs.


Diagnosis/Preparation

Preparation for tubal ligation includes patient education and counseling. Before surgery, it is important that the woman understand the permanent nature of tubal ligation as well as the risks of anesthesia and surgery. Her medical history is reviewed, and a physical examination and laboratory testing are performed. The patient is not allowed to eat or drink for several hours before surgery.


Aftercare

After surgery, the patient is monitored for several hours before she is allowed to go home. She is instructed on care of the surgical wound, and what signs to watch for, such as fever, nausea, vomiting, faintness, or pain. These signs could indicate that complications have occurred.


Risks

While major complications are uncommon after tubal ligation, there are risks with any surgical procedure. Possible side effects include infection and bleeding. After laparoscopy, the patient may experience pain in the shoulder area from the carbon dioxide used during surgery, but the technique is associated with less pain than mini-laparotomy, as well as a faster recovery period. Mini-laparotomy results in a higher incidence of pain, bleeding, bladder injury, and infection compared with laparoscopy. Patients normally feel better after three to four days of rest, and are able to resume sexual activity at that time.

The possibility for treatment failure is very low—fewer than one in 200 women (0.4%) will become pregnant during the first year after sterilization. Failure can happen if the cut ends of the tubes grow back together; if the tube was not completely cut or blocked off; if a plastic clip or rubber band has loosened or come off; or if the woman was already pregnant at the time of surgery.


Normal results

After having her tubes tied, a woman does not need to use any form of birth control to avoid pregnancy. Tubal ligation is almost 100% effective for the prevention of conception.

Morbidity and mortality rates

About 1–4% of patients experience complications following tubal ligation. There is a low risk (less than 1%, or seven per 1,000 procedures) of a later ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy is a condition in which the fertilized egg implants in a place other than the uterus, usually in one of the fallopian tubes. Ectopic pregnancies are more likely to happen in younger women, and in women whose tubes were closed off by electrocoagulation.

Rarely, death may occur as a complication of general anesthesia if a major blood vessel is cut. The mortality rate of tubal ligation is about four in 100,000 sterilizations.


Alternatives

There are numerous options available to women who wish to prevent pregnancy. Oral contraceptives are the second most common form of contraception—the first being female sterilization—and have a success rate of 95–99.5%. Other methods of preventing pregnancy include vasectomy (99.9% effective) for the male partner; the male condom (86–97% effective); the diaphragm or cervical cap (80–94% effective); the female condom (80–95% effective); and abstinence.

WHO PERFORMS THE PROCEDURE AND WHERE IS IT PERFORMED?



Tubal ligation is generally performed by an obstetrician/gynecologist, a medical doctor who has completed specialized training in the areas of women's general health, pregnancy, labor and childbirth, prenatal testing, and genetics. The procedure is performed in a hospital or family planning clinic, and usually as an outpatient procedure.

QUESTIONS TO ASK THE DOCTOR



  • How many tubal ligations do you perform each year?
  • What method of ligation will you use?
  • What form of anesthesia will be used?
  • How long will the procedure take?
  • What side effects or complications might I expect?
  • What is your failure rate?

Does a woman still carry eggs after a tubal ligation. If so can a woman take her eggs and her husbands sperm and have them put inside her uterus to become pregnant. Is that a possibility instead of going through surgery to reverse the tubal?

How does a tubal affect you and your ability to care for a new baby if it is done within the 24 hours after giving birth? For example, how will this procedure affect your ability to breastfeed?

I've had my tubal ligation for 4 years now. I'm worried about being pregnant because I'm delayed for 10 days and that is unusual for me bec I'm very regular in my mentrual cycle.

Admitedly, I was under a lot of mental stress the week before & during my cycle period. But I'm now ok yet no menses. Scared & hesitant to do a pregnancy test.

i am 27 years old i have two children and have had my tubes tied for 4 1/2 years, one year ago i got pregnant and had a miscarriage, i found out 1 week ago i was pregnant again, and just had another miscarriage. is this common? does this mean that my tubal did not hold? one dr. told me that the healing of my tubes (healing back together) was a likly problem because i had my surgery at 23 years old and my body being so young could have produced less scare tissue hence my being pregnant twice in one year, is this true?

I am now 33 years old, I had my tubes tied almost 8 years ago at age 25 after my third boy and third c-section. I have had many female problems since my tubal and wish for many reasons that I had not done it. I am hoping that since I was 25 years old, had my tubal during a c-section and that almost 8 years has gone by that I could get pregnant again. What are my chances of my tubes connecting again and getting pregnant under these circumstances?

I am 37 years old and had a tubal litigation 9 years ago. The procedure I had was to remove a portion of my tubes and burn the ends. Is there a possibility of my tubes growing back together and becoming pregnant again? I regret ever having this done. I too have had irregular painful menstrations and they were every month on the same day my whole life up to the time I had this surgery. Also, does anyone know anyone that had a successful tubal reversal and pregnancy after having the surgery I had?

I had a question about a tubal coming undone. I had a tubaligation about 6 years ago and I was wondering if I am no longer under that protection of it working properly? Then I was also wondering if I will feel the tubaligation if it comes undone? The reason why I was asking is that just last night, I was having very excuriating pain in the lower pelvis and in my right side. The pain was almost unbearable, I could't get comfortable, walk or lay any particular way. Needless to say, I now have an GYN appointment this upcoming week. Is it possible for them to be undone or possible that I am pregnant?

I am 24 years old and due to bad experiences after having2 children and 2 c-sections I decided to have a tubal ligation. I had it done at the time of my daughters birth after my c-section in Sept. of 2005. I am unaware of the method that was used to perform the tubal ligation. I have since married and we are wanting to have a child of our own. If the tubes were tied, clipped and burnt, could i still conceive a child? Is there a way to conceive without having a reversal of the tubes? Would IVF or artificial insemination be an alternate means of getting pregnant?

Just wondering what happens to the eggs after a tubal ligation? Does the body have some alternate way of disposing of the eggs that are released during your normal menstruation? Does this increase chances of infection in the ovaries or increase the possibility for ovarian cysts?

Hello,
I was 30 yrs old with three children when my husband and I decided to get tubes tied. When I was 38 we reversed the tubal ligation and now have two more beautiful children. I am now 42 and who knows, maybe child number six will be on the way...children are a blessing of the Lord! If you think you want to reverse there are many website that will direct you how to go about it. I think a big one is called blessed arrows or somthing like that. Okay, take care all!

Hi I am a 30 yr old mother of two. My kids have different fathers. I had my tubaligation on June 28, 2004 because i wasn't married and i didn't want to have 3 kids by three different men and not be married. I have since found a wonderful man whom I've known all my life. He's perfect he is 31 and he doesn't have any kids. Of course he treat my kids as they are his own but I know that he wants a child of his own. We have discussed trying to get pregnant and are interested in tubal reversal. I know this kind of thing is expensive and my insurance will not pay for it. If you have any information that would benefit me I would greatly appreciate it. Did I tell you that we are getting married on December 27, 2008.Thank you REady to give my man a baby.

About 5 years ago I had a Tubal Ligation, As my regret I seeked into getting a refusal. With great disappointment I found out I am not able to have this reversal due to the fact the Md whom did my procedure burned my tubes 10 times. Now-- to me this does not sound normal it sound excessive, for a Medical doctor would do this 10 times.Once or Twice ok but Not 10 times Im seeking into Malpratice against this Doctor Because 1`) he never adviced me he was doing it 10 times 2) I thing he went crazy and just didnt think I ever find out he did that..To his surprise suprise I did! My question is what is the normal numeral cut on a burn tubaligation and Why would some one do this 10 times?

After getting my tubes tied, i have become pregnant 5 times each resulting in miscarriages. i'm currently overweight and in the process of losing weight, my question is if i lose (x) amount of weight will that enable me to get pregnant again? my dr told me that I over ovulate(unlike most women who have had tubals)and that it could be possible for me but i want to knkow if a weight loss will result in a baby?

I am reading all the complications associated with this procedure and I was wondering if someone could give me a percentage of women that had to reverse due to those problems. They included: palpitations, severe painful periods, vaginal dryness, loss of libido, early menopause, cold falshes, hot flashes, anxiety, trouble sleeping, etc..

I do want a way to permenantly fix the risk of pregancy, but now I am scared that it may do more harm than good.

I am almost 29 years old. I had my tubes cut, burnt, and tied almost 3 years ago because I didn't plan on having any more children. I am concerned that I could possibly be pregnant and am really worried. My husband, who has no children of his own, wants a child so bad he can taste it. He knows I had this surgery and wants me to find out if there are any other methods of getting pregnant, if it turns out that I am not currently pregnant. I know you probably get this question alot, but what are the chances of me being pregnant now?

An xray of my hip area shows one of the clips used in my tubal ligation has been displaced and now sits over my right hip bone. Does this mean that it has floated free of the fallopian tube rendering me fertile? More importantly, will it do any harm just sitting there or should it be removed?

I recently had a tubal ligation and my uterus burnt all at the same time. Now I know that the tubal ligation has been around for several years but I was wondering how long has the uterus burning been around? With the uterus burning it is supose to stop your period for good but since the surgery I have been experiencing a horrible smell and tons of bleeding and grapefruit size blood clots. I went back to the hospital the other day due to it and I ended up passing out on the hospital floor and when I was seen by the doctor, he couldn't explain what had happened or why I was bleeding the way that I was. Could you please tell me what is going on or why this is happening when it isn't supose to be doing this? Thanks

My name is mandye. I'm 29 and I have 3 children. I had my tubes burned in April of 2000. All my children have the same father who walked out of their life in 1999 while I was pregnant with my last child. I married last July. My husband of a year is a wonderful man who walked into our lives and became the father my children always wanted and needed. He does not have any children but always wanted them. He understands that I may never be able to bless him with the gift of life and it tears me up every day. Please think about your decision very carefully before doing this type of surgery. There's so many of us who did the surgery and now regret it. None of us ever thought we'd change our minds.

After a Tubal do woman still carry eggs. If so can a woman take her eggs and her husbands sperm and have them put inside her uterus to become pregnant. Is that a possibility instead of going through surgery to reverse the tubal? Is it expensive?

I'll never regret having my tubes tied- it kept me from getting pregnant when I was in unhealthy relationships that I could not recognize and had wished I could get pregnant. I'm sooo greatful I could not get knocked up by another loser. I was able to get an education, escape an abusive relationship- break a cycle of co-dependency and grow mentally. If I had got pregant after my two children they would had suffered because of the lapse of Judgement that goes on in new romances, especially when you are young and uneducated. I was able to gow up and it's hard enought the two children I have had to grow up with me but it would had been worse to put more children through the hell my first went through while I gained independence and provided them with their needs. Surgery can reverse tubals- more than than the percentage they tell you when you have the procedure done. My brothes wife went trhough a tubal reversal and she got pregnant within the first three months! the baby is now 1 yr. Good look to those who want another baby and stay positive.

I became pregnant 11 years after postpartum pomeroy technique tubal and miscarried at 6 1/2 weeks what are chances of becoming pregnant again?? Also the post operative report states that the physician cauterized my mesosalpinx tube on one side and the fallopian tube on the other.. I wouldn't think that he made a mistake on the report since it was going to be kept on record...What would happen if he did indeed cut the wrong tube?? Any answers would be greatly appreciated Oh and I would call and ask the Dr. except that he has left the country... :)

Hello. I am a 28 y/o mother of 2. I had a tubal in Dec of 2002, because at the time I was not married and really couldnt afford anymore babies. Now I am remarried and my husband has no kids. I would really like to be able to share with him the wonderful experience of pregnancy, birth, and a brand new baby. I have been doing a little research and from the looks of things its going to cost me about the same amount of money to have a reversal then get then tied again after having another child as having IVF or AI. So, my question is which do you think is a better choice with the best outcome? Thank you!

Hello I had a tubal ligation done during my c-section in 2003 and since then I have had pain in my abdomen and usually on my lower left side (sometimes but not often it happens on the right side as well)around the area that my ovaries are located has anyone experienced this problem and if so is it due to the tubal ligation? I am not sure as to what tubal ligation procedure was done due to the fact it was done during my c-section. Also I would like to just say to anyone considering a tubal ligation to really think about it due to the fact I do regret it now. Every time I see a pregnant woman it makes me sad. I am thankful in a way that I did have the procedure done when I did due to the fact that my husband has became abusive this last year and I ended up leaving him 3 months ago. So I am thankful I did not have to put any more children through it. BUT on the other hand I have stated a new life and would love to have another baby now due to the fact I have only had 2 of my own both being boys and I would love to have the chance to have that little girl I have always wanted. However, if it is suppose to happen it will regardless the fact I had a tubal ligation. Who knows maybe it isn't to late to have it reversed.

It is possible to get pregnant after a tubal ligation! I should know because I am right now. I had one done right after the birth of my now 20 month old(April 2008). I am almost 40 and already have 3 kids so I'm very upset. I am 5 weeks pregnant now but do not yet know if it is in the tube or not. I have not been tested because the military is "hurry up and wait" around here. I am waiting patiently until I hear when I can be seen. I told my husband to get a vasectomy but he would not. Well believe me now he will get one.

I just had my tubes tied 11.24.09 WHEN I HAD MY SON DRAKE. I do have 2 kids[[Veronica & Xackary]] with my ex husband and my new guy whom is Drakes dad and he is so sure he only wanted 1 baby but i am not a 100% sure i just want a total of 3 kids and i kinda want another baby in the next 3 to 5 yrs and i wanna know y i am having so much pain i have had 3 c-sections i have never had this much pain and my period lasted for 4 weeks and 5 days and with my other kids it only was 2 1/2wks to 3wks. Is this normal My scar is extremely sore and becoming hardened is this normal im scared something has happened. After my c-section my son was flown to Phoenix and stayed in the NICU for a wk and i went out with him only 12 hours after he was born i was released to go be with him my whole body became swollen and i had a fever and had chills. Im not sure if any of this is normal and my body is no longer holding IRON in my blood stream i know that is not normal by any means i'm concerned that this may stop or affect me ever getting a reversal or IVF later in the future? If so i can always adopt i do consider that a option...

I want to have a tubal done but I am afraid of the risk and complications that it may cause me. I am a law enforcement officer and can't afford to be in and out of work with major complications due to a tubal. Can u give me some helpful advise please,

I happily had my tubes tied in Sept 1999, 25 years after I wanted to have the procedure done. I never had children by choice & had my mind made up since I was 14, but no doctor would do the surgery when I was in my 20s. ObGyns really need to listen to patients in their 20s that want this surgery & not tell the patient, ''oh, you're young-you'll change your mind''.

The doctor also cut me from one side to the other it's the same cut as my c-section i had 3years ago. I also have cravings at night for salty food. Other than that my body feels normal. It's just all the gas and being so bloated all the time. Is this normal or do i need to see my doctor

I am 24yrs old. I had a tubal done 5 weeks after I had my second son naturally. I had the tubal b\c I lost a baby between my two boys and had to have a dnc to remove the dead fetus. Also I had alot of heart trouble the last few months of my 3rd prengnancy when I had my second son. However, I have been experiencing a sharp stabbing pain where I believe my tubes are both between my periods and during. My periods come at the regular time every month and they are always the same length of time. So I wanted to know what may cause the pain, I have no insurance to see a doctor. Thank you very much.

Ive had the clamp tubal surgery for 3 years now. I can tell you this much...
I have had more then enough bacterial infections, and Ive been with the same person the entire time (sexually). The doctors ingore my infections when I ask if its related to my surgery.
Also I have severe pain on my right side the morning of my period, the pain is so bad I fell like my ovary is going to burst. So I take Midol or something for pain, the doctors will not give me anything for the pain~~
I feel though that the clamps are the reason for my repeating bacterial infections.
I may have to have the clamps removed in the future???

If I could do it all over again I would have had my husband snipped!Tying my tube was the dumbest thing I ever did. (I only have one) I had my girls 2-14 bled for 10 1/2 weeks finally stopped for about 2 now I am bleeding AGAIN and have been for more then 2 weeks! Do not get a tubal they suck the bleeding never stops! I wish someone had told me how bad it really was before I did it. At this point I think I will bleed every day for the rest of my life. My husband tells me I cant wear Aventurine because my tube will grow back together. I had ovarian torsion wore Aventurine and got pregnant with my girls.

Hi,

I am a 48 year old woman who has had my tubes tied 17 years ago. Both of my breasts are extremely swollen and my left one has started with a clear liquid about a week ago and now the discharge is white and a bit clear. I haven't had tender breasts in years prior to my period. What is going on can I be pregnant after all these years.

I have a question, Do you bleed after you have this done? Like a peroid? And if so for how long?

I have read all the above comments regarding tubal ligation, and it really scares me to read of all the woman who has had this prosedure and still fell pregnant. I had a tubal ligation done on 28/06/2010 and I did this as I definitely do not want to have any more children as I turned 40 in April and the other main concern was healthwise as I had premature emergency c-sections with both my sons as I had very high blood pressure. I now feel that I could have left the surgery and have gone with any of the other birth control methods, which was not 100% safe, because tubal ligation now also doesn't seem that safe, and this is not how I understood the term sterilization. Can you maybe put my mind at ease?

I had my tubes tied 4 years ago and now mt cycle is late 2 weeks. Should I take a pregnancy test or could something else be wrong. I would love to have another child and deeply regreted having the procedure done immediately after. I think I rushed to the decision because my last 2 children were born in the same year 10 months apart.

After 12 years of a tubal ligation can you get pregnant? I have missed my period a 1 month and 5 days and I never miss a period, I'm having signs of morning sickness,real bad cramps I haven't had them in 13 yrs.I have a lot of bloating. What does it mean when you see blood that look a brownish color it looks like it's dried?

Looking at all these comments, I think the majority of you shouldn't have or shouldn't have had a tubal. If you EVER want kids in the future, this is NOT the birth control option that you should look at. EVER. Even though there is a slight chance it can be reversed successfully, it should STILL be considered PERMANENT. For one thing, you are causing yourselves to be subjected to a surgery that can be avoided, which has some risks, and if you want it reversed, you are going through another surgery that probably won't even work. Also, you are making it harder for women without kids to get this done, whether you realize this or not. OB/GYNs have been noted giving women without kids a hard time and refusing to do the procedure because they think that they will change their minds, especially women in their early to mid 20s like myself.

There are plenty of other options for women who want kids in the future. Only get something permanent if you are absolutely sure that you are done having kids or never want to have kids. Also, talking to your OB/GYN is better than asking random people on the internet. Just saying.

Stacy,

The odds of you being pregnant are very slim and there are other possibilities as to why you're spotting and cramping. If it worries you that much, you can go buy a pregnancy test from a drugstore. If you really think you need to, visit an OB/GYN. They will be able to figure out what's going on much more accurately than I can.

I've had my tubal ligation for 4 years now. I'm worried about being pregnant because I'm delayed for almost 3 months now and that is unusual for me because even I'm not regular but only now it happen that it takes so long.

Admitedly, I was under a lot of mental stress the week before & during my cycle period. But I'm now ok yet no menses. Scared & hesitant to do a pregnancy test.

I had my tubes clamped in November 2009, 2mths after my 2nd child's birth, at age 21. So in January of 2011 it was time to start my period and I spotted for one day. Then 2days later I had a period for 2days. A normal period is a solid 3day flow. Is there a chance I could be pregnant? And if I could be, will I be able to keep the baby?

I just recently had my tubal ligation. One week ago today to be exact. My cramping has been intolerable pain. The pain meds ease the cramping, however when they wear off, the pain is just very intense. I was informed this is normal for the first couple days, after surgery. It has been 1 week now, and the pain is still intense. And isn't easing up at all. What do you suggest I do?

I had 2 children and 2 c-sections. On my last c-section (8/18/09) i had my tubes clamped. Now when i get my period i have cramps so bad i can't move i just curl up in bed and cry until i fall asleep from the pain. I also have vaginal dryness that makes me feel like less of a woman since i have never had that problem before. I would like to no if these problems are a result of the clamping. I would also like to no if it is possible that the dryness is from my last pregnancy when that was over a year ago.

My husband refuses to even discuss a vasectomy so I guess the family planning is yet again up to me. I am leaning toward a tubal libation but frankly have heard many horror stories about extremely heavy periods and mood swings afterwards. This doesn't make me feel very confident about this decision and I was wondering if anyone out there has any experiences to share, both good or bad. I would appreciate any input.

I had a tubal ligation using the hulka clips in March 2006, then in November of 2007 was back in surgery for a golf ball size cyst in my right tube. At that point I was having sever pain in my right lower abdomen and had early pregnancy symptoms which ended up being as a result of the cyst including missing my period every other month. When the doctor was in removing my cysts she also pull all four of the clips I had on the right side leaving my tube unclamped but very damaged. I also have had to other ruptured cysts about every six months since the last surgery. I went from being a person who had never had a cyst in my life to having them all the time. Is it possible to fix the problem without having a full hysterectomy at 29 years old as my doctor has suggested every time I see her? I don't want to have any more children but also do not want to have to live in pain for the of my life or be on hormones either. What are my options?

I had my tubal ligation 3 years ago after having my 3rd baby under C-section. Now, I'm experiencing lower back pain and dizziness a lot of times. I had spotting for 3 days. I'm so worried. Is there a possiblity that I'm pregnant?

I went in to have my tubes clamped 5yrs ago and after having the op, i had to go back 6wks later for a check up. Thats when i was told i only had one tube on the left side. The doc said i had had the other one removed, i told him i didnt but he said i didnt have a right tube. So 5yrs later here i am 20wks pregnant and all i want is an answer to HOW i could of fallen pregnant. Im told i feel pregnant from the right side where i have no tube so im really confused. Im 32yrs old with 3 daughters so im happy and im hoping for a boy. But i just cant understand how this happened. What a miracle baby..

In 2008 I had an tubal ligation done up until now no problems but I am 15 days late for my period. My periods are regular. I went to my PCP and they did a urine and blood pregnancy test which both were negative but I have symptoms of pregnancy= breast tenderness, frequent urination,nausea, and fatigue. What could it possibly be? Could the pregnancy tests be false negatives? Should I request an ultrasound?

i have a question, it might be a dumb question but I dont know the answer. After you have your tubes tied will you still continue to have your monthly periods? Do they stop completely? Or do they just become irregular? Hope someone out there can help me answer this. Thanx~

Kimi, I had my tubes clamped after my daughter was born 2 years ago. Since then, my periods have been very painful. I bleed for 15 days at a time, with sometimes one a few days in between periods. Sex has also become very painful. Also, I have been getting cysts that explode since then. I recently had a laproscopy done (about 6 days ago) and the doctor said he drained some cysts, removed the right clip, and could not find the left clip. Everything has been messed up since my tubal. I would not recommend one to anyone!

Hi, I had my tubes tied,clipped and burnt. i am now engaged to be married in july of this year. My fiance doesnt have any kids and has always wanted kids. My question to you is, is it possible to implant his sperm into my egg and then place into my uterus and carry our baby like that? I guess to put it simple can i still carry a baby inside me?

I had the tubal surgery done in 2007 around March, but now Im experiencing the symptoms of being pregnant, the weight gain, tiredness, almost the whole nine. I took a store prgnancy test on yesterday and didnt get any results at all. I am very concerned because I thought I was'nt going to get pregnant again. I know that some women die of this. I'm frightened, how else will I know if I'm pregnant or not, besides going to the doctor?

I have had a tubal ligation for 20 years with no problems. My friend has had a tubal ligation for about the same amount of time, but her doctor used bands on her fallopian tubes (mine was done by cutting, tying and cauterization.) After menoapuse, she started having severe pain and says she can feel the bands squeezing her. Could this happen? What could be the cause?

Tubal ligations can cause HORRIBLE things to happen! I was not informed by my doctor, who was all too willing to make more money by doing the tubal while he did the c-section. Thank God not every woman has trouble - but there are a lot of us that do! The medical community tries to hide these facts! BE INFORMED! Better to get your husband fixed or just stay away from men!

Dear Sir/Madam,

I had Tubal ligation during a c-section, after 4 weeks I felt aches, pain and tender mucsal all over my body, it lasted 3 days and it went away. The next day my baby had runny nose and coughs and became ill and had to be hospitalised because he wasn't breathing well. Could my illness be related to my baby's health because I am breast feeding?
My baby is 7 weeks now and I have the same aches and pain, I went to visit my family doctor and was informed I have infection from the operation. How sucessful is the Tubal ligation if there is an infection and what do I need to do to recover?

I have had two children and had a tubal ligation done with the last because i have had two c-sections and do not want any more kids. however if I had known that i would be going through a mini c-section every month i would not have done it. I am talking about the pain in my abdomen. every time my period comes along i am in unbearable pain for two days, then i spot for a WEEK!!! Really it is not worth feeling like this at the age of 25. by the way I was 24 when i had it done so you can get it done at an early age but DONT!!!

I'm 43 with 2 boys (age 4yrs and 8mos) had c sections both times and tubal ligation with last baby at same time of birth. Since then (8months now) i have had some serious hormonal problems - i have never felt so angry and unable to handle stress like i do now. i only feel tenderness and love toward the children and don't feel depressed but i do feel very angry at my husband and even he realizes that something very bad is happening to me. I am also experiencing serious bowel problems. i have always been very regular and have never been constipated even during my pregnancies! now i can't even pass gas normally. it's affecting me so very negatively i don't know what to do. i've seen my OB/GYN recently and he said everything looks good, i've gone to a gastroenterologist and had a colonoscopy that revealed nothing... i need to know if i am experiencing side effects of a tubal ligation - i cannot imagine feeling like this much longer. i haven't had a normal BM in a long time. always diarrhea and having to take stool softeners and laxatives is not my cup of tea. i try to work out as much as possible... just very concerned. can someone please advise me on what is going on and if i will ever feel normal again? Thanks for listening.

Greetings, i just had a tubal in early june after having a baby at the end of march. The only cycle i have had since then was the one immediately after the surgery. Of course, it is now september and i have recently read that although it is rare, it is possible. My question is, how healthy is it really for one if the cycle is supposed to be for cleansing the body of unfertilized eggs??? And i empathize with all of the women who are having all of the various issues you all are having post-surgery. I have not had any other issues nor do i wish to have anymore children. Everyone be blessed!

I gave birth to my daughter 3 months ago via Cesarian section and had a bilateral tubal ligation done right after. I have not had a period in almost two months. I was wondering if it is normal to stop having a period after a tubal ligation or is this something that I should talk to my doctor about. I have not taken a pregnancy test yet because I was told that maybe my period was not regular yet since I just had a baby.

I have to say I've been only spotting this whole week and experiencing some lower pelvic pain on my right side. I woke up today and started to feel nausea, along with diarrhea, and severe abdominal pain. What should I do? Is there a possibility I might still get pregnant?

I am 30 years old and have 3 beautiful, healthy children (2 boys and a girl). I had my tubal done yesterday morning (Sept 16, 2011). My doctor cut and burned mine closed. The procedure only took about 10 minutes but I was in the hospital for about 6 hours. There are 2 small holes, one burried in my navel and the other in the pubic halirline, no stitches (used the durmabond). Dr said a resposible adult had to be with me for atleast 6 hours after discharge, had to take it easy and rest today (not a problem when I had to wait for anastysia to get completely out of my system) and can increase activity tomorrow (sept 17) as I can tolerate, can shower after 24 hours. Also, gave pain medications (if I need them). Have to stay on clear liquids and light food for 24 hours and then advance as tolerated. also said no SEX, TAMPONS OR DUSCHING until follow-up appt with her in 2 weeks. Also, no lifting or pulling until follow-up appt. Dr said I am 100% protected from prgnancy now and do not need birth control anymore.
The only part of me that hurts from the surgery are the right side of my ribs from where they pumped air into my to work, it burned for awhile when I would go to the bathroom from where they put a device in me to hold the uterus still while they worked (all perfetly normal).
If everything goes great during the procedure, the dr knows what they are doing and you don't have any complications, you should only miss about a week of normal activity. 1 day for presurgery labs and paperwork, 1 day for surgery, 1 or 2 day of recovery and 1 day for follow-up apptointment.
Hope this information helps anyone that has questions about the procedure.

I am a 40 year old mother of 7, and I had a tubal ligation done with surgical steel bands on my tubes. It has been almost 11 years since I have been pregnant. I dont know if I am going through menopause or if I am pregnant.In November I had a period for 12 days and I spotted for 2 days in December of 2011. My concern is they said that there is a 1% chance that I could get pregnant, but it has been 11 years. I am really scared because if I am pregnant then that would mean a tubal pregnancy for me. please tell me that I am just going thru "the change" and not pregnant. We cant afford another baby and I dont believe in abortion. Im scared. And normally I have a period for 6 days but just these last 2 yrs. I have been having it for 7 days sometimes. Help me please :(

My husband, who has no children of his own, change his mind that he wants to have a child.

I have had my tubes tied for a little over 10 years.., but I also had them carterized(?). A few years back I had to have emergency surgery for a cystectomy in which they removed one ovary and fallopian tube.. My question is can I still have the side that is left reversed when it was carterized and what is my chances on pregnancy with only having one side to work with.., or as I seen in other comments do I still produce eggs and would it be easier or safer to take sperm and implant into my uterus??

I had my tubes tied at 24 but had to sign a waiver with my doctor to do so. I am 35 now and after 11 years of having a tubal ligation, with no reversal done, I found out that I am pregnant with my 3 child. I am almost 10 weeks and it is in the right location of the womb and not etopic either. The doctors are calling it the miracle baby. I have been looking in cyberspace to find out statistics and see if any one has gone full term. But havent seemed to find anything on the web. Has been difficult and so than different than the other two pregnancies. Have not been bleeding or cramping but have experienced passing of tissue thru the vagina along with some really bad morning sickness. A bit concerned because of my age and the years passed of not being pregnant in so long but trusting in God.

Hello, just wondering if anyone could help. I had tubal clamp's 18 months ago whilst having a c section to my fourth child. My period's have always been like clockwork and i am now 34 day's late. I have all the same symptom's as my last 3 pregnancies (one carrying twin's). I know the chance's on falling pregnant are very slim but do's the risk increase if you have a c section at the same time? i have taken a home test which came up negative over a week ago.am i going mad? i am only 26 so i don't think it's the change.

Had a tubal ligation 6 years ago after having my 3rd c-section. My periods had always been regular until now. At 46 years old and 3 children later, I would think I know the signs of pregnancy. My periods came every 28 days for 5 days and always light to heavy and then tapering off. This time I had my period on the 28th day and it was light the 1st day and heavy the 2nd and 3rd day. From the 4th to the 11th day, I am still bleeding but more of a spotting. Spotting for 8 days is not considered normal in my book. Still feel bloated and have some cramping beneath the abdomin from time to time. Feeling completely drained and exhausted. I know I cannot be pregnant. Had unprotected sex on the 5th day of my last cycle. Could I have a cyst?

Not to be mean, but all of you pleading to have the procedure reversed is likely why my health insurance is making me wait 30 days for my procedure (not happy). But it is what it is. I had endometrial ablation, so pregnancy is dangerous for me & a child. I was offered to get my tubes tied then, but didn't think I'd mind taking the pill. Now I mind. Surgery is March 30.

Anyway, for those with heavy bleeding, ask about endometrial ablation. It helps heavy bleeding. This is why I can't have babies safely. And a couple of people mentioned a brownish discharge, could be a symptom of endometriosis. Last, my dr said because if my endo, I might have to go back on the pill to regulate my cycles. Just thought I'd share. If you have questions about ablation or endo, feel free to e-mail me: kamikazekiki0212@yahoo.com.

Michellle,

I've had 4 laparoscopic surgeries for endometriosis. It usually takes me a week to recover. I think a tubal ligation is 2-3 days to recover (your insides aren't re-arranged). My last female surgery was ablation & I was down a week from healing.

Best Wishes!

@ tlinwood I got my tubal ligation in 2008. I have cramps, functional ovarian cysts and no periods (maybe 1-3 a year for the last couple of years) If you find out let me know, cause it's very frustrating not feeling well and everything else too.

Thanks :)

I had my tubes tied and cut 4 years ago ( January 2008)when I was 23. I did an at home pregnancy yesterday morning, it came back positive. I rushed myself to emerg. Once there I had blood work done yes I am pregnant (4 to 5 weeks) the levels were low 1st question - is the low levels due to being so early in the pregnancy or because it could ectopic? Next I had both an ultrasound and internal ultrasound but they said it was too early to tell anything and they sent me home..I have made an appointment with a gynocologist but I am sitting here at home freaking out completely...Is it possible to have a viable pregnancy after having your tubes cut and tied?

If i could give any of you ladies the most important information about tubal ligations or any other form of permanent birth control. DON'T DO IT!!!I Had a tubal ligation in 2010 and I wish i had read all of the information and what women went through after it was done. I wish i would've never done it and stayed on bc pills. It was the worst thing I could've ever done to my body. I now suffer from a condition called POST TUBAL LIGATION SYNDROME. If you are having symptoms you've never had before and you have had a tubal ligation, please search this topic. you will find several face book pages on this syndrome and tubal reversal pages where women are getting reversals. You are not alone and you are not crazy. Most OBGYNS will not recognize this as it is doctor caused and will not tell you the side effects of a tubal or any other permanent birth control. Since this is caused by doctors and is not recognized because of it, you will not be able to have the TR tubal reversal covered under insurance because they look at it as a cosmetic surgery. Your doctor will only prescribe you medicine on top of medicine to treat symptoms and more than likely tell you it's all in your head. You're just stressed out or depressed, you just need to treat the symptoms. My favorite one is "You need to have a hysterectomy". I am still young and years away from menopause to be experiencing the worst case of PMS and menopause symptoms in my life! So ladies if you haven't had a tubal, please please research this!

I am 39 years old. It has been five years since I had my tubes clipped. My dr. used the filshie clips. I was new to this five years ago and didn't ask enough questions. Now I am concerned. I have read of women getting pregnant years after having a tubal. Can the clips ever fall off? What exactly happens to the tubes and is there still blood supply to the tubes? I was told there is. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. .

i am 38 years old. i had my tubes "tied" (clamped) about 10-11 years ago. i just two months ago ate a poached egg for the first time, this was very strange bc i have never eaten or ever wanted to eat my eggs like such! i dreamt about doing that for three nights. i have three teenage kids already. i wouldn't ming having another bc my husband is a very good father and we have an ok livestyle with our family. i have had all the signs and symptoms of pregnancy ( i have had all the signs and symptoms of a tubal just like everyone else!) i am scared that all i will do is keep getting me and my husbands hopes up on a pregnancy that will never be able to come to term. does anyone know why this is happening to us? and what can be done about it? i went from being a young active military mom to now a mother how suffered from TWO heart attacks, and several rounds of kidney stones, and stomach ulcers? is this normal and if so why didn't the doctor tell me all of this? HELP!

I am 37 years old, just found out i am pregnant. I have three wonderful boys, with one man we were together 13 years but split when my youngest was 7 months old. I am now living with a man and been together for three years. The thing is i am scared about it having another child, and being the only parent to care for it. I love the man i am with, but he works long hours and is gone for weeks at a time. What am i to do raise this child alone, one day i was browsing on the internet i saw DR SAMBOL, drsamblspelltemple@gmail.com, testimony saying that he help people when do can't get pregnant, and people that don't have any child that are looking for i quickly took the his email and contact him for help after doing what he ask me to do thing change and that day i got my self back again and i was having enough power and every thing went through. So i contact me friend that live in NYC she has be married for 12 years but no child, to my best surprise my friend that was childless for the past 12 years was pregnant oh my God thank you DR SAMBOL drsambolspelltemple@gmail.com for the kindness.

I was wondering I have had my tubes cut and tied, and I was wondering if I could still get pregnant? The reason why is because I am trying too. The other reason why I am asking is because my periods are only lasting for 4 days. I had my tubes tied in 2006. I am also having lower stomach pain where the did they my surgery.

Hi, i just had a tubal ligation on october 5th. I have not been sexually active since a couple months before that. I have had a lot of pain and in and out of the doctors and urgent care and nobody can find anything wrong. this pain is the most excruciating pain ever. it is to my left side under and by my ribs and it goes into my back... i was told today that when they did the tubal ligation she might have sewed it up so tight that it pinched off the flow and blocked my kidneys from draining so she ordered me an ultrasound on my kidneys and if thats the case then they will put in a stint to allow the kidney to drain again. has this mistake ever happened to anyone else? to me this is malpractice because of her screw up im paying for it... physically and literally.

Is it possible to get a slight infection when having your tubes clamped? After my daughter had her 4th C-section she had her tubes clamped. She complained about pain in her lower right abdomen. They told her it was gas. She started having very heavy periods averging 2+ times per month. Now it is 7 months later and she is in the hospital with a severe infection in her fallopian tube from the clamp to the ovary. Could this have started when they did the procedure?

I had a tubal ligation using the clamps about 5 years ago. I frequently have severe pain in the area that I assume the clamps are located. I have spoken with nurses where I had the procedure done and they figured it was just a result of ovulation. I explained to them that the pain doesn't always come at the same time. I wanted to know if it is common to have such pain 5 years after? I am not looking forward to having this pain for remainder of my life. Is it something I should be worried about?
