What are the pros and cons of having your tubes fully removed?

So I go on July 31st to have my 4th and final baby. Via C-section. They are removing my tubes altogether. I was wondering if anyone else has had this done? Pros and cons? This will be my 3rd C-section. It’ll make my family evened out. I have two boys, and one girl and my little caboose is a girl. I’m officially done, DONE.

I got mine removed about a year ago. Nothing really changed for me besides not getting pregnant of course. Dr says it is more effective than just getting them tied you don’t have to worry about tubal pregnancy either.

Got mine removed after my last baby as well. No problems. And I was told it cuts down the risk of ovarian cancer by almost half.

I’ve known a couple ladies that just got them cut and tied and the tubes grew back. If you are sure sure your done. I would get them removed. The difference other than the slim chance of growing back would be that the procedure cannot be reversed.

I had a section of my tubes removed and my youngest baby is now 25. The oldest is 29. Haven’t had any problems or pregnancy scares in those 25 years so I’d say it’s an effective procedure lol.

I had my tubes cut tied burnt years ago. In January I had my uterus and tubes removed along with a prolapse repair. So far no problems and no more periods. They say it reduces your risk of cancer also.

I got mine removed about 3 years ago. The procedure hurt more than I had expected and took several days off of work. Other than that, it’s been fine.

I had mine tied sept 2018, after 3rd C-section/4th kid. The healing process was a little different. I swear I could feel where they cut them. I still randomly get idk phantom pains from it. But I do not regret my decision at all and would 100% DO IT AGAIN.

I’m having mine removed after this pregnancy and from my Dr. & research, a huge pro is that your ovarian cancer risk will drop significantly as most cases derive from the tubes themselves. :+1:

I had mine removed 5 years ago. My periods are a bit heavier now, but I think that mostly has to do with not being on birth control anymore. No other issues.

I’m on my 4th and final kiddo as well 2 boys got 1 girl and this one is a girl. I’m having my tubes done. My doctor told me that they usually just remove the tubes completely I am not okay with that as the women in my family go thru horrible periods and horrible menopause. I am sticking with just having them tied nothing else no burn or cut. The failure rate for just tied is about 5% I’ll take those odds.

I had mine removed 3 weeks ago along with uterine ablation. Pros of tube removal, no more pregnancies or bc! Pros of ablation, just finished my first period since the procedure and it was practically non existent. That’s huge for me because I generally had awful, heavy periods and bc never went smoothly for me.

If you only have your tubes “tied” you could still get pregnant, and could have them untied. By removing the tubes, you will not get pregnant and cannot get them undone.

Even with a tubal removal there is a chance of your tubes growing back
