I am newly pregnant with our third child and I don't want anymore after this.......I am seriously thinking about getting my tubes tied so I don't have to worry about it, but my other half thinks that it will totally screw up my hormones and make me crazy! Is this true?? Thanks for any input!
P.S. I did read that you still menstruate and release eggs so I don't see how it would make my hormones out of whack....
i've read both ways. and ive read a vasectomy can do the same thing to men. so i dunno the truth. however im getting my tubes tied regardless when i have my c section in a few wks. google it and do some research, and def. ask ur doctor
My doctor said it's actually the least effective on hormones than other birth control. It can cause a change but usual not a big one. Definitely discuss with your doc. I am opting for a tubal instead of IUD or pills or any of the more common methods. I am on number five between my DF and I so I am also done!!
I had a tubal ligation and I did not notice that it messed up my hormones, but a couple of years later, I did have to have a hysterectomy (only took my uterus/cervix), due to bleeding approx 20 days per month. Not sure if that bleeding started happening BECAUSE of the tubal or not.
Thanks sooo much you all for getting back to me! I didn't get to check until just now and that really helps a lot! I will definitely have to check with my doctor about it and make a decision:)
rach789: I think it can cost quite a bit for a reversal and they can't even gaurantee it will work:( I just read on a website it can cost anywhere from $3,500 - $10,000 depending on where you live........
