Re: Tubal ligation

by Cheryl (no login)


Hi Marci!
I am Cheryl. If I were you, I would not get the tubal. I did, back in '93, and totally regret it. Not from the standpoint that I want more children, BUT, my health has been compromised as a result of my tubal. I am one of the unlucky ones that developed PTS after my tubal. It took about two and a half years to show up. Mind you, NOT ALL WOMEN develop PTS, BUT... I don't feel it is a risk worth taking. The majority of us that have PTS have complications that can drive you nuts. Heavy bleeding, PAIN(BAD cramping,) migraines, exaggerated PMS, depression, hot/cold flashes, fuzzy memory, bloating, loss of sex drive, the list goes on and on.
Ultimately, many post-tubal women are advised to have a hysterectomy. At a MUCH younger age than normal. In hindsight, had I known then, what I know now, I NEVER would have had my tubal. I stand behind my decision to not have another child, BUT... I want my health back.
I would not advise a tubal for anyone, no matter what. It is not worth it. Best of Luck to you!! Cheryl :o)

Take the Tubal Ligation I.Q. Test Are you outraged? Feel as though you and other women were not (are not) being informed? Think that a class action lawsuit should be filed on behalf of post tubal women because information was and still is being withheld by the ACOG! The CPTwomen invites all reading this forum to join the CPTwomen and communicate with us at the members' forum. All posting here and conversation here has been moved to the members' forum.

CPTwomen members have testified in front of the IL and CA Court, the IL Gov. Task Force, the Sunset Review Committee, (Senator Liz Figueroa), NOW, and more. What occurred has been made a matter of public record. The CPTwomen are making public the issues which millions of other women have faced in silence. Issues such as women are not informed at the time of their tubal ligation that there is a risk of hormonal imbalance occurring. For the CPTwomen to continue its mission to move this issue to the forefront of government, we must ask for a small contribution/subscription fee from all those who wish to communicate with us and participate at the Coalition's Bulletin Board
