My Dr. NEVER showed me any type of printed information regarding my tubal. I like to think that I am fairly intelligent regarding reproductive information (I WORKED IN A WOMENS' CLINIC FOR GOODNESS SAKE)! No one, including several physicians other than my own, ever told anyone about PTS. Are our medical schools letting people with the empathy of a lugnut graduate? What happened to doctors that got into the business of healing for mankind? I think insurance companies should start paying the price for inadequate physicians. It seems to help things along when you start hitting people in the wallet. Unfortunatly I know it will be the general public paying the price for these mistakes. The OB that delivered my daughter almost killed me because she gave me some medication to dry up my breast milk. I ended up having 2 grand-mal seizures and almost had a stroke. Of course I'm one of the lucky ones, I lived! Some of the husbands and grandparents aren't as lucky, they are raising their children/grandchildren without a mother. It took a class action lawsuit to get it off of the market for non-breastfeeding mothers. The only thing I do know is that I am 30 years old, getting married in February to the most perfect man I have ever met and that we want to have a baby together. Any respnse would be highly appreciated.

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
