I had a tubal ligation at 44. My doctor cut the tubes so short that if they came untied weren’t long enough to grow back together. I had 3 grown kids so knew I was done. It’s a piece of cake)

Why would you have a tubal ligation after a hysterectomy?

Good question, back in those days I didn't question doctors, so the doc made extra money on me, now that you mention it.

That can’t be real.

That you had a tubal ligation after a hysterectomy. The tubes were already blocked by the hysterectomy.

Even IF the doctor was unethical, insurance would have caught it I would imagine.

It has worked in the past as I've never got pregnant but I don't want to worry anymore when my period is late, which frankly is something that happens often because my cycle can sometimes be a bit irregular.

I am a bit worried about side effects, complications or the process not working. Does anyone on here have experience with female sterilization, negative or positive?

I'm talking about the kind where they block your fallopian tubes, not a hysterectomy or anything.
Don't do it. Use condoms or the pill. It's better for your overall lifelong wellness if you continue to be a whole person with regular periods until your last eggs are gone.

Out of curiosity, how many children do you have?

I don't want a coil because I have a friend whose coil escaped and gave her serious internal injuries and hearing about her experience terrified me.

I have used condoms in the past but don't really like using them.

I don't want children and have always known this.
You do realize that having a tubal ligation means your libido will disappear - it disrupts the natural hormonal cycle.

If you don't want any children, and are 35 years old without an accident, I suggest you continue doing what you are doing. It's working.

Check for fibroids. Women who do not have children but who do have a couple of abortions sometimes develop fibroids which can lead to heavy bleeding towards menopause - it's not a good reason for a hysterectomy.

I had a tubal ligation when I was thirty years old. We had two daughters and we knew we were finished having children. I had been on multiple types of birth control and the side effects were terrible. Initially I went in for the Essure procedure not a tubal ligation, but my one fallopian tube was so curly cued that the doctor couldn't do the Essure procedure, and the tubal ligation was the back up plan. I have a tiny scar below my belly button from the procedure. Pain afterward lasted for about a week, nothing too terrible, but I couldn't wear pants or shorts during that time, just dresses because my stomach was sore.

Afterward it's been smooth sailing. Love the freedom of not having to worry about birth control at all, and no weird side effects. I have not experienced a lower libido, things are just as good as before.
