For those who have gone to a specialist to organise getting their tubes tied what was the process?
I've got my specialist gyno appt on Thursday and very anxious and trying to be as prepared as possible and get all my research done before hand so he doesn't think I've just thought about this huge decision overnight... Iykwim?
What questions did the drs ask you before you were booked for ur tubal ligation?
What do you wished you asked before hand?
Thanks in advance.

Well mine was offered to me just before I was wheeled into theatre for an emergency c-section, so slightly different circumstances but he asked if we had finished having children and would that answer change if tragedy struck and we lost one of our kids. Our answer was a definitive no, so he went ahead with the surgery.
If I'd had my time again I would have asked about potential side effects - particularly Tubal Ligation Syndrome. I don't know whether Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome is a crock or not, but two years post surgery I'm having symptoms that indicate I'm entering into menopause at 35. This could be purely coincidental but, yeah, if I had a chance, I'd ask about side effects.

Post tubal ligation syndrome doesn't bother me as I'm already having side effects after losing my right tube last year due to an ectopic pregnancy.
The only factor I think they won't like is the fact I am only 27 in a couple of months.

I was going to go through the hospital system. They tried hard to talk me out of it. I am in forties and have 6 kids.
I just insisted that is what I want and they booked me in. Unfortunately it didn't happen due to unforseen reasons.

I had mine done two weeks ago. I told the specialist WE were done having children and that should something happen to one of our children WE would want to replace them. I am 30 and have two chn. I told the ob I have high blood pressure and that I should be on oral contraception. Which he agreed.

I have high blood pressure and tachycardia and on atenolol to control both. I will be on it for life...
I also cannot tolerate oral hormonal contraceptives, or hormonal contraceptives in general. They raise my blood pressure way too much and I've also been advised due to my history not to have any more children. I have one living baby (nearly 2.5yrs old) and need this for my sanity. I would never replace my babies (lost or living) and I wouldn't regret having it done.
If he says no on Thursday, it will be a very expensive ($150) no!
Given my circumstances I'm hoping he will say yes. I nearly died giving birth to DD and being pregnant with an ectopic.
Pregnancy does not agree with me.

Appt went ok - Gyno said yes to tubal ligation providing another gyno (his colleague) says yes purely because of my age. My second appt booked for late May then I need to book another appt with my original gyno to book it in and do paperwork.
Hoping desperately for another cancellation with this gyno as I'm really wanting a hundred percent green light!!!

Trying to get the other gynos appt moved forward I have a lot of anxiety going on about this. I'm just hoping they both agree and do it for me. Damn age always a factor
