At first I thought it was just me, being a type 2 diabetic but when I did my research; A lot of women who had gotten a tubal ligation expierenced what I was going thru'. An Aunt of mine had to get a hysterectomy due to the non stop bleeding. Plus, a lot of women become anemic too. I'm sooooooo not looking forward to next month. Do ask your Dr for an iud or something.

I'm glad I read the response before mine! I'm 22 and just had my 4th 3 weeks ago. I was going to schedule my tubal ligation when I see my OB in a couple weeks.... now I'm debating it!



I think maybe you should just talk with your doctor about pros/cons/side effects etc. It might be the easiest, but I may consider going back on the pill too :P

Hey Kristie.

I'm 26 and I just got my tubal ligation done about a month ago. I have 5 kids and honestly, you should look into birth control. There's side effects that come along with it. I just got off my cycle a couple of days ago and lasted for about a week and a half. The bleeding was horrible and the cramping felt like contractions, literally. My Dr. had to perscribe hormonal pills to ease teh bleeding and that helped a little bit. So my advice to you : Look more into birth control then getting your tubes tied. I wish I had, but all I wanted to do to was tie em'. Good Luck !
