  • Please look up side effects of tubal ligation. Docs don't usually tell you that there are sometimes serious long standing complications from this procedure. You still have hormones, and these hormones can cause lots of the symptoms you describe. Do you have a history of painful periods? Heavy periods? Endo? Do you have pain in between your "cycle"? Could be cysts or endo causing your pain. An ultrasound would show a cyst. I recommend an acupuncturist or perhaps massage therapy to help you, especially around the time of your "period". Find an alternative practitioner to help get you back in balance. Acupuncture is excellent for women's issues. Visit www.acufinder.com to find one near you. My midwife had a tubal fifteen years ago, and she said if she had known how much grief it was going to cause her she would NEVER have had it done. She says it really messes up your hormones.Best wishes.DOM

  • thanks for your response,it gave me a few alternative routes to consider. i always had light periods with almost no cramps.also,no pain in between"periods"i have researched endo and cysts quite a bit,but all the sites talk about heavy bleeding and excruciating pain(i have neither) i totally agree with your midwife!i wish i could climb a mountain and hang a banner "TUBAL LIGATION STOPS A NATURAL BODY FUNCTION THERE WILL BE SIDE AFFECTS" i have a doctor appointment tommarrow and will insist she send me for an untrasound.i'm 24 and my body is acting like i'm 50.i'll make sure to mention the message therapy to my husband;) it's tiring chasing after a 4yr old,21/2yr old twins and a 18month old

  • Please do not listen to anything Shula or Acuann tell you. My sister just passed away because Shula and Acuann told her that her doctor was wrong and she did not have a serious condition. Acuann even told her to get acupuncture to get healed. These people are going to be investigated for practicing medicine without a license. Shula and Acuann are specifically wanted in connection with my sisters homocide. Thats right homocide. If she would have listened to her doctor instead of these internet quacks she would still be here today. Rest assured I will do everything in my power to put these two behind bars and shut this website down for good.
