Tubal Ligation: A properly performed tubal ligation (or cautery of the tubes) will not interrupt the circulation to the ovaries. If this is done, your ovaries are still producing hormones, and you will have menstrual cycles which will produce PMS with both ovulation and with your period. Ask your gyn provider about low dose birth control pills, which stop ovarian production of estrogen.
