Many things are a possibility post-tubal ligation. Weight gain, premature onset of peri-menopause and menopause, fibroids, cysts, endometriosis, adenomyosis, loss of sex-drive, migraines, mood swings, terrible PMS, many things. When dr's do what they do to our tubes in a tubal(clamp,cut and tie, cut,tie and burn), the blood flow to the uterus is compromised or even destroyed. That brings on hormonal imbalances that can cause various symptoms. This does NOT happen to ALL women, but the chance is there. This is called PTS-Post-Tubal Ligation Syndrome. It is not accepted by the medical community, therefore they say it doesn't exist. I am NOT a medical person. Just a housewife/bartender. I have learned about PTS on the internet from researching and by meeting other women like me. Hope this helps!! Cheryl :o)

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
