    Default Anyone had their tubes tied?

    So I've been thinking a lot lately about birth control and I had a thread about the Mirena as that was one option but I'm not sure about it due to the potential complications.

    But I know I'm 100% done having children. Has anyone had their tubes tied? How long was the procedure and recovery? Any complications? Is it covered by private health?

    TIA

    Hi, I haven't, because I'm scared of tubal ligation syndrome- Google it.

    I am getting mine done in December at the WCH under public health system. I am quite scared and I wish I could have more kids but my health and finances stop that. I am told it an overnight stay but with my history, i may be in for up to a week.

    I have heard periods can get a lot worse and something called tubal ligation syndrome can occur.

    I just googled it and it sounds horrific!

    I'm thinking I just need to get DS weaned and I can start taking the regular pill again. It never failed me up until now.

    Has anyone had tubal litigation syndrome after the procedure?

    I had my tubes tied nearly four years ago during my c-section.
    My periods were more painful but whether that was due to the procedure or not, I'll never know. Now my period is all over the place but I'd wager that has more to do with what my body has been through in the last few years!
    I didn't know about TLS prior to having the procedure but I have no regrets.

    I've had my tubes tied back in February. It was a day procedure.

    I had no dramas or pain after the procedure and my periods have been significantly lighter since.

    Hormonal birth control doesn't agree with me, tied tubes do.

    My DH had a vasectomy because my mum had her tubes tied and has ticked several boxes for post tubal ligation syndrome and I wasn't willing to risk it.

    My GP offered me a referral for an endrometrial ablation. You could look in to that.

    It says that you should still continue other forms of contraception. But sounds interesting.

    I know it's important to understand the risks of these procedures, but every time I read the potential side effects I get scared off.

    It would be so much easier if DH would just have the snip. I understand his hesitation though, I'm just so scared to get pregnant again and abstinence isn't really the way to go any more.

    I am in the exact same position. We are using condoms at the moment. I said to DH last night that he is free to go the dr to talk about the snip anytime it suits him cos my body needs a rest after 15 years of hormonal contraceptives and three children. I'm just leaving it to him now to do something more permanent, I'd be happy using condoms long term- it makes little difference to me, I've taken responsibility for contraception by messing with my hormones long enough, I definitely don't want any more babies.

    I don't want my partner to get the snip because he is considering sperm donation in the future.
