I am not a doctor, but this is what I understand to be true...

First of all if you are having palpitations this could be very serious. How old are you? when did you have your tubal?

Now for some answers....

If you are anemic or suffering a hormone imbalance, which both could be caused from the tubal, you could experience palpitations.

Known and comman symptoms of anemia (low iron) include shortness of breath and heart palpitations, as well as the comman "always tired"

As far as hormones are concerned....The following are some quotes for a recent study (1997) about heart palpitations and women...

Palpitations occur frequently in women at all ages, especially during the luteal phase (which is a hormonal phase) of the menstrual cycle... (tubal ligations can cause hormonal imbalances and create shorter, more intense luteal phases)

A correlation between "ovarian hormones" and occurrence of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia has recently been reported in female patients with normal menstrual cycles; (meaning you may be still having regualr or semi regular periods, but the ovarian hormones, or lack of them could cause palpitations....)

Palpitations during the perimenopausal period are usually benign and seem to be related to the increased sympathetic activity caused by the menopause (meaning palpitations during meno are comman)

Again, I'm not a doctor, but if your experinceing palpitations due to lack of your "ovarian hormones" meaning "estrogene" you are probably experincing bone loss as well.

What other symtoms are you having?

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
