Tubal Ligation after C-Section??


Hi, ladies .

This is baby #4 for us....he'll arrive via c-section in April. I'm 41 and this is probably our last go around. We are considering a tubal ligation since the doctors will be in there anyway .

I wondered if any of you were electing to do this....I haven't really researched it to see if there are down sides or complications to having it done at the same time. It seems to me that it shouldn't be so bad....but I'd love to hear your thoughts or experiences .

Thanks so much,

Tracy

I too am having my 4th LO ~ (& 4th csection)

My Doctor asked if id like this done, so I went home & researched

Turns out there are some possible side effects, possible ectopic pregnancy, heavy/painfull periods, hormonal changes etc......

Hence, I have decided NOT to get it done & gonna send DH for the 'snip'

I told the Doctor my reasons & he agreed that I shouldnt get it done if I have any doubts/concerns, just because they already have me 'open'

Good luck with making your decision ~ This is purely my thinking

question ladies, what is the preferred age to be entitled to a tubal ligation?
it seems to be that in most countries from what I hear the age to be allowed one is 35 or over, and its unlikely you would get one under 35 unless you have more than four children

Useful thread !!

I wanted to tie my tubes and asked my OB/GYN, where she said it best to do it and CAN be done during the c-section. I'll be 34 this May and this is my 3rd boy and 3rd c-section. Here, in Italy doctors don't advise to go beyond 3 c-sections. After discussing with DH we decided I'll get it done during my c-section to be scheduled.

i am 30 years old and im having my third baby.. my first two were naturel births and iv opted for a c section this time round as i had a traumatic delivery with my last... im also having my tubes tied while they are doing the section as i cannot take any contreceptive i have tried so many... its my choice not to have anymore children and my husband is only 28 and i would not ask him to get the snip...

Im only 25 years old and just had mine done 6 days ago during my c section. This is my husbands and my 3rd boy via c section and we both agreed our family would be complete. So we figured im already open why not. I didnt look into side effects though... It all went well, guess ill just wait and see.

I will be having my 3rd baby and am 32. It will be my 3rd section. As I have gotten sick the last two pregnancy and will likely get sick this time we figured that it would probably be best. I believe that there are side effects to any surgery or procedure despite how minor. I am sure that there are some for the man to get snipped as well just haven't looked it up. It will only be about 2000 more since they are already there. I would go ahead and do it.

^^^^ this

I didn't have my tubal ligation done during a c section, but it is a proceedure which really needs to be thought about

It really bugs me that doctors (usually male LOL) don't tell the whole truth about female sterilisation ... after I had mine I had the most appalling problems with both period and ovulation cramps (I'd never had them so badly before in my life) and the most incredibly heavy bleeeding ( 7 to 10 days and passing clots the size of my thumbs became normal for me after the op).

Those problems went on for years and only stopped (for obvious reasons) after I had a hysterectomy some 6 years later ... talking to others among my friends in RL who have also had ligations, it's quite common - and quite common for the heavy bleeding to lead to hysterectomy after a few years too

Back then, when I had mine, the internet wasn't around so I had no chance of finding this stuff out before the op and it was all presented to me as being simple. straightforward and side effect free If I had known then what I know now then I would never have had it done

So glad that this thread is here.

I too will be having a C-section. This will be my 2nd but for medical reasons I can't go through another pregnancy. TBH I'm so confused after reading stuff online. Has anyone ever heard of Essure?

http://www.essure.com/what-is-essure/how-essure-works

It seems like it is a safe alternative but I don't know of anyone that has had it or has thought about it.
