    Default Last pregnancy and tube tie - what is possible?

    Hi!

    We are making this our last attempt at having our last child. We see our ob tomorrow but thought I'd ask a few questions on here first.

    My last live birth and late mc both ended in retained placenta and pph - the first being manually removed and the second being done through d&c.

    We need to have something a little more permanent done as far as birth control as I can't have surprises due to +ANA levels.

    I don't mind a natural birth as I know I usually heal faster, but not sure what is safest with the previous bleeding and the fact that I am interested in getting my tubes done anyway - am I better off going with a c-section? Can I get the tubes done at the same time?

    Many thanks,
    LT.

    Hi little Ted

    Yes you can get your tubes tied while having a c/s, but it depends on your Ob & hospital. A few hospitals refuse contraceptive procedures (mater is an example )

    Thank you - I've just been strolling through some old threads and some of the women say that their periods got heavier afterwards - ahh!

    What other options are there? I don't trust the pill or condoms in their entirety and I had a mirena and could feel it scratching around when I exercised. If I went on implanon I would be the size of a house - one of my friends went on it and she was a slight person and it's the only time I've known her to put on weight!

    DH hasn't seemed too keen on getting the snip, but it seems more appealing to me! Perhaps a life of abstinence from here on in

    I don't personally see how getting your tubes tied could cause heavier bleeding?

    There's two types of tube tying - one involves a plastic rice-like structure being put in the tube (essure method) and the other is the traditional snip & clamp of the tubes.

    Vasectomies are safer and generally better in the long term (and can be reversed should it need to happen).

    The other options are the endometrial ablation, a copper iud (hormone-free mirena like) and the use-as-you-go methods like condoms and diaphragm then there's the nuva ring, the pill, depo provera etc

    The essure method is not that well known in Australia currently.

    Hmmm - thinking DH needs to talk to someone about the snip a little more. I don't have the best of hormones as it is.
