Long-Term Side Effects of Tubal Ligation

Tubal ligation or tying tubes has been around for many years. Sought after by those who do not want to have children or those who have completed their family. This form of permanent female sterilization is considered very effective.

For some there are no issues after the tubal ligation and these women are very happy with the decision they have made. For others something dreadful begins to take place. There is a name for the many symptoms that take place after a woman has had a tubal ligation. This is what many call Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome. This is becoming more heard about. With the increasing use of the Internet women are making their voices heard across the globe.

Although many in the medical field do not acknowledge PTLS there are a few doctors that do. But before we jump ahead let me just list a few of the symptoms.

  • Painful and heavy periods.
  • Body aches and pains that are unexplained.
  • Mood swings that are worse than PMS.
  • Headaches
  • Weight gain that is not helped by exercising and diet.
  • Unexplained night sweats.
  • Dry itchy and flaking skin.
  • Hair that literally is dry and brittle and thinning and may fall out in clumps.
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Hopelessness
  • Marital problems
  • No desire for sex

This is just a few of the symptoms that many women suffer from after a tubal ligation. What happens next is just as troublesome. The woman will see her physician and explain what is happening. Patient is often told things such as:

  • It is in your head.
  • Get used to it you are getting older.
  • You are just depressed and lets give you a med for it.

Imagine getting this as a response? And some women do begin to second-guess themselves. Sad but true!

Is there help? Yes, there is help and actually surgeons that do believe that PTLS does happen to women. Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center perform just tubal ligation reversal surgery. This center is well known around the world and couples travel from every corner of the globe.

Tubal Reversal Surgery-A New Chapter

We all begin new chapters in our lives. Just as Oprah Winfrey will be moving on so doesn’t the rest of the world. The same is true for those women who have searched and chosen tubal reversal surgery.

Many tubal reversal surgery patients have pretty much the same lives as the rest of us. They grow and begin a relationship and many go on to have children. After they feel their family is complete they have a tubal ligation. But, as in life, things change. Maybe they were not in a good relationship and felt it was not best to have any more children so they had the tubal ligation.

Circumstances change and many women want children after the ligation. This is when they begin searching out tubal reversal surgery. And this is where, for many, Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center comes in.

Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome

For many women who have had a tubal ligation and things have just seemed to go wrong with their bodies. You are not alone. Many women experience heavy periods, cramping that is bad enough to disrupt your everyday living, missed periods along with irregular periods you are not imagining things. Many women who have had a tubal ligation and will report all the symptoms are told it is just due to age or that their bodies are changing. This is not the case. It is called post tubal ligation syndrome.

Many women state the their periods are late and when they do get them they are extra heavy with cramping that will make you have to catch your breath’. Many women also report that their periods are extra long and can range anywhere from 2 weeks to a month at a time.

Another symptom of post tubal ligation syndrome is drastic moods swings. A couple of weeks before their period is due they will feel it starting. Mood swings related to PMS are not out of the ordinary but this is much more severe. Being angry at the world or just sliding into depression are the main symptoms reported.

The question is how can this happen after having a tubal ligation? The answer is that the blood supply to the ovaries has been cut back or damaged. This in turn causes a decrease in hormones to the ovaries that occurred during surgery. Many of the symptoms that are related to PTLS are also associated with menopause, having an imbalance in the hormone that is not being treated and hormone shock. Hormone shock can be explained by sudden changes in the hormone level in the human body. Major complaints of hormone shock are sleep disturbances, appetite changes, excessive mood swings, decreased sex drive and memory loss. Is it any wonder why women get scared and begin to search out answers?

For many women to get relief means they would do just about anything. There is an answer for some and the answer is tubal reversal. There are expert doctors available that can even perform surgery as an outpatient procedure. One of the best-known doctors is Dr. Gary Berger of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center. Women travel from all over the world to have the reversal performed.
