Same: Same as a c-section without a tubal ligation. Healing is the same, hormone balance is the same, dependent more on whether you breast feed, take hormonal birth control, & how soon you resume ovulation. Patho-phys is therefore no different & different for each patient because of pain thresholds, healing parameters, use of medications, rest, & the amount of support. I hope that helps. ...Read more

Depends: It depends on the type of tubal ligation. If you had your tubes cut and tied at the time of a cesarean delivery, it fails about 1 time in 400. If you had a clip placed on the tube it is usually around 1:300. The newer tubal ligations where we put a coil or plug in the tubes are better and fail really rarely. ...Read more
