Has anyone been sterilized after a c-section?

I just had my 3rd in March and my last two were both C-Sect.I did get my tubes tied when my DD was born. Recovery time was a little longer than with my son, and now my periods are SUPER heavy. Scared the heck out of me the first time. But other than that I've had no issues. Good luck

Im a 32 year old mom with two boys my eldest son is 6 years of age and my youngest son is nearly 4. After having two bad births with both sons and also having a hernia in my groin im opting for a c section this time and im wanting to get sterilised the same time as having the c section as i defo want to stop at three children now. Does anybody know if you can get sterilised at the same time as having the c section? from melanie

I'm in a similar situation, I have an almost 4 year old and an almost 2 year old. Last one is due in July. I"m getting my tubes tied/burned after this one arrives.
I posted another thread about this, and most of the responses I got were "I know this person/I have had one with no problems"
After some research I've found that periods CAN be heavier, but not always, and the biggest problem for most women is actually regret. (*I wasn't completely sure I wanted a third child, in fact I was pretty sure I didn't but for me, personally, an elective abortion is not an option, so here we are*). So I don't think I will regret having mine done...maybe sometime down the road it will make me sad but I don't think I'll ever actually regret having it done.
It's pretty safe, and as long as you get more than one 'preventative measure' done (as in cut AND tied, or cut and Burned, or tied and burned....you get the point) it should be more permanent than only having it done one way. My fiance's cousin has a few kids with a girl he isn't with anymore, she had her tubes tied, but ended up pregnant again.
So as long as you're absolutely sure, go for it. :)

I will be 36 at the end of the year, I have an amazing 3 yr old and I'm 34 weeks pregnant with another little boy and thinking sterilization is about the best option. Has anyone had any severe after effects (heard of very heavy periods and a much longer recovery)?
