Tubals can mess you up. If only the dr's were honest with us prior to consenting to our tubals, my life would be very different now. As for the symptoms, they vary from woman to woman, but can be anywhere from AUB, to endo, to adenomyosis, fibroids, cysts, menopausal symptoms, migraines, hot flashes, heart palpitations, moodiness, tender breasts, you name it, the possibilities are endless. Statistically speaking, I can't give exact numbers, but my guess of the number of women that have hysterectomies post-tubal, for whatever reason, is probably upwards of at least 50%, if not more. I am guessing low, I could be way off, and probably am. :o)
I had my tubal five and a half years ago at the age of 27, 24 hours after the birth of my son. The past three years, my cycles have gotten increasingly worse. PMS is awful! I have been told that I am peri-menopausal. My cycles pre-tubal were fine, the only times I was late were when I was pregnant, otherwise, it showed up like clockwork, pretty much, with no severe complications.
Glad you found us. Take Care! 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
