I have read your responses to susan and hers to you and I am more concerned about this now more than before. I unfortunately do have anemia and I have blamed that for a lot of symptoms that you and others women are having. It scares me to know that doctors have so much control over people that they can keep us in the dark about this and not have to be responsible for the outcome. I am 27 years old and I would like to have more children but in my current condition (tubal ligation) I can not. My surgery was done through a government agency which paid for the full cost of the procedure but, when I returned to that agency after experiencing problems I was told that a reversal would not be offered with their assistance. CONFUSING!!! Now I am having heart palputaions, abdominal twitches (not related to my menustration), heavier bleeding and stronger cramping and constant blooting. Is there really anything legally that can be done to force these so called physicians to face up to this? I was offered birth control pills to stop the bleeding and cramps but that kind of defeats the purpose of the tubal.

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
