Just had mines tied too 3 weeks ago. They did it following my normal vaginal delivery. I got the epidural so they did not have to inject me for anaesthesia again. They took like 20 mins, you do not feel any pain at all for sure. I got very shaky tho, they said it was  normal, but I mean I was super shaky. Don't know why. So you get sore but nothing unmanageable. I think the labor part was more painful afterwards then the tubal surgery. Just make sure you really want this!

My doctor just told me that they have started a new type where they remove the entire tube itself. She said they believe it helps reduce the risk of cancer and prevents future pregnancies. But I've conned my husband into getting fixed lol

My husband is getting fixed because I heardon't too many stories in my family of how it messes with your hormones.  I already have hormone problem's with no thyroid.  My OB wants,to remove all overies because of high risk of cancer in my family line. I think I rather just get check up and tested every year for cancer than hormone problems.  Than again, I don't believe in removing your breasts because you might get cancer. I have had 2 c-sections and will have with this one again. My husband can get fixed.
