The tubal

I was going to hold off on making this post a while but I think it is time. I didn't want to be premature, but I have to say from experience now, having a tubal ligation has lessened my cyst rupturing pain and PMS migraines. I figured this is something worth posting to my fellow childfree sisters.

In late September of last year I had the tubal done. It was relatively painless. I went in for outpatient surgery and before I knew it, I was in recovery. The only problems I had was a bit of dizziness afterwards, but it was the first time I'd ever gone under anesthesia and I think that was expected.

Anyway, typically speaking over the last several years I have often had blinding left hip pain before my period. My doctors and I determined the cysts were worse on my left ovary and thus bursting and leeching, causing me to feel as though I was being stabbed by a sharp object.

Then to top all that off, I'd have a blinding PMS migraine at least every other month, if not every month, of the last year.

It has now been five months since I have been off the Pill (thanks to the tubal) and I'm happy to say that I have had neither of the above.

I believe that stopping the hormones I was getting from the Pill is the reason why things have gotten to much better. And I've lost weight much easier too. Go figure.

I recommend having this procedure highly now. As a 32 year old woman who knew she didn't want to have children, and a husband who felt the same, it just was the most prudent thing to do. I wanted to get that extra estrogen out of my body and now I know it helped! :)
