I am 28 years old and had my tubal when I was 23 in 1993. I started having the heart palpatations last year...I have hypothyroidism..so i have been contributing alot of my symptoms to that...since 1993 I have gained 50 lbs that seems to stay no matter what... I am tired.. very tired... I just experienced the worst case of PMS that I have ever had... to the point where I cried for 4 hours straight...my periods are pretty regular. I have been getting cramps lately and that isn't normal for me... 3 days of cramps with this months period. I don't usually cramp.. I usually get a couple of ovary pinches..as I call them.. cause that is what it feels like and that is all... this time i spent a day in bed doubled over. Bone loss was not something I thought of. I am not anemic. This is a totally new concept to me, and I am still struggling with the realization that something i did because I thought it was the safest means for me... is actually possibly destroying me... I know you aren't a doctor, but your advice and help is appreciated!! I will keep a diary of when the palpitations come and when my periods are and see if i see a correspondence between them. Anything else I should be looking for? thanks SUSAN!!

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
