Pros and cons on getting tubes tied?

So I was thinking about getting my tubes tied after my third baby. I haven’t had much thought on it until recently. I was wondering the pros and cons on it! Stories, suggestions, I’m up for all!

Love it. Periods way better I think. Highly suggest it. No more thinking about birth control ever.

My period was a lot worse after I got my tubes tied

After my son was born I got mine done and he’s almost 5 months old. I’ve had four pregnancies but only two living babies. I mentally couldn’t go through another pregnancy but watching him grow so fast makes me regret it sometimes but honestly im happy with my daughter and son. I don’t have to worry about taking birth control or having something in my body that throws me off. It’s been great so far, I’m breastfeeding so I haven’t gotten my period back yet. The surgery itself wasn’t bad, normal pain after but quickly healed :woman_shrugging:t2:

After my 2nd c-section I had mine cut & tied - I didn’t want the worry of having an “OOOPS” baby and hated trying to remember to take the pill. I have had no problems since (and that was 43 years ago)

I got my tubes removed when I had my c-section and everything went great. When my period came back it was kind of heavy but I think that’s because I didn’t have one for 9 months. Lol.

Pros: can’t get pregnant, no birth control
Cons: possible heavy period

I wouldn’t do it. If your relationship ends and the next guy wants kids it’s going to be a deal breaker.

My neighbor got hers done and some days she regrets it. She gained a lot of weight and has her days where she wishes she could have one more. I’d personally just get birth control until you’re 100% sure you’re done.

Best thing I ever done.
Got my tubes tied. Then went back and got the novasure ablation. So I haven’t had a period in 3years and It made it to where I can’t have anymore kids. You girls should check into it!!!

I got mine done after my 4th. I was 23. I regret it but I’ve had nothing but problems since then and a more painful period. And that was 11 years ago. The only pro I have is not worrying about forgetting my pill.
Keep in mind everyone’s body reacts differently to things. Personally, I think it is more of a decision based on how your body/health is. Just talk to your dr about how it can affect yours

Ive had mind cut and burned for over 7 years and I regret it every day. Not because I cant have kids, I was finished having babies after my 3rd. But my periods got SO much worse! I am literally completly immobile for 5 days a month. I bleed so much and I am completly drained of energy. I cant even make it to pick all my kids up from school and make it home without stopping. I would have never had it done if I knew this was going to happen. I would have gotten the implant in my arm that lasts a few years until I was ready for a hysterectomy.

I got my done last year it great to not have to worry about birth control but my monthly is bad but I have always had really heavy periods and bad cramps but sometimes if feels lot worse.

Just fyi, getting your tubes tied does not mean you cannot ever get pregnant again. I know many women who have gotten pregnant after having their tubes tied.

I had mine done and it sent me into menopause at 26, I had complications with each pregnancy and Dr said it was necessary, I guess God felt so too. I’m sure my case is not common but it does stink to know at such a young age my possibilities were limited and there risks with such an early menopause as well but everyone deals with something best wishes

I recommend getting then done right after a baby I had mine done and my daughter is 7 it was the worst pain I have ever been in. I didn’t have mine tied they took my tubes out so no change if ever getting pregnant again it’s wonderful.
