Can I hear your stories about getting your tubes tied?

M 35 and due with my 4th girl this summer, and I’m highly considering getting my tubes tied. I would love to hear from other women who have done this! Good, bad, pros, cons, regrets, or would you do it all over again. Also, how have your periods been afterward? Thanks in advance, ladies!

We got ours tied…and then untied because we wanted more babies (pregnant with baby #5 now🥰). My periods were terrible after I had my tubes tied.
This is a very personal decision, but I personally would never tie mine again and will be opting for a less permanent option.

I got my tubes tied and my periods are heavier since having it done. Having them tied I don’t regret as I have 4 babies and know I was finished :slight_smile: procedure wasn’t bad at all sore for about 2-3 days and then pretty much back to normal! Throat hurts bad for about a week from having the tube down your throat. My incisions healed very well and can barely tell. I have 3 small ones.

My periods were absolutely horrible after I got my tubes tied. I bled through my clothes every month. I bled so much that I became anemic. I’m actually in the process of scheduling a hysterectomy.

I got mine tied the day after I had our fourth child. the doctor came in the morning of the surgery and asked me if I was honestly ready to do this. She said that you know it can cause your periods to get worse cramps worse everything. I knew that I wanted them done because I did not want to see get pregnant again but I wish I had gone another option because she was correct my periods are worse and the cramping is horrible.
As far as the procedure like I said I got it done the day after I had my fourth child so I was still recovering from childbirth but it honestly was not too bad. if you get it done just make sure you have comfy pants because it will get rubbed and it will hurt.

I got my tubes removed. I always had heavy periods but they are definitely the worst they’ve ever been. Although I do have some other female issues that are unrelated.

I have 4 kids and am in my 30s now so im glad I cant have any more. Birth control just never was something I could use, so I dont regret it.

I didn’t see any difference really however nothing is 100% I found this out summer 2019 a suspected kidney infection was infact a baby nobody thought to test for pregnancy due to being sterilised years ago and having periods I now have a 14 month old miracle baby girl with an age gap of 18yrs between eldest and her

I had mine tied 2 years ago. I got pregnant in September of 2020, doctor confirmed it wasn’t in my tube, had a misscarige at the beginning of October 2020.

I had mine removed, eliminates any chance as well as reduces the chances of ovarian cancer by 50-80%. I dont regret it a bit, recovering is easy, periods are a tad heavier but over all nothing that would change my mind.

Had mine tied a month after having my son. Have heavier periods and cramping now but that’s it. I actually went out and rode on a motorcycle that night with my then husband. :rofl:
Didn’t have any pain with the incision or healing, just a sore throat that same day from the tube is all.

My mom had hers tied…7 years later I was born…her 6th child. In her 40s. If you do not want more children maybe consider a different option…I know others who had same thing happen after having tubes tied.

I got my tubes done after my son was born. I definitely regret it now. It’s only been two months so I can’t say I’ve gained any extra weight or had horrible periods cause neither has happened for me yet. I’ve just had light bleeding since he was born.

I just got my tubes removed a couple months ago after having my 4th child. Recovery was super easy and my periods are lighter with little to no cramping.

I had my tubes tied almost 4 years ago. I do not regret it since I don’t want more children but I do wish I’d done more research on it. My menstrual cycle is completely awful since then (heavy, irregular, etc.)

I got my done and don’t regret it at all. I had no problem at all.

My period was horrible after my tubes were tied. I had a hysterectomy last year. It was so bad I was wearing diapers.

I had one child in 2012 and was tired of freaking out about birth control so I decided to get my tubes removed in September2020. I was relieved of how easy it was. I thought they weren’t going to because I had one. No regrets since I don’t want anymore children. My periods never changed as they have been like normal 4 day periods since my late teens. Good luck.
