Do You Have To Have A Hysterectomy After Having A Tubal Ligation
No.: A tubal ligation, or having your "tubes tied, " is a permanent and irreversible method of contraception. The surgery is done by cutting through the fallopian tubes so pregnancy cannot occur. There is no need for a hysterectomy - having the uterus removed - for a tubal ligation. A hysterectomy would typically only be performed if there was a disease process within the uterus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi I have had a tubal ligation in 2012 but over the last year or so my monthly cycle has been increasing in severity. What is the recommended age for a hysterectomy or are there other options to stop the cycle altogether
Need Gyn evaluation : A careful Gyn evaluation (medical history, complete physical-gynecological exam, pelvic sonogram, Pap test...and perhaps blood test) should lead to a diagnostic cause of the "increasing severity of your monthly cycles" and hopefully its medical treatment. Quite a few options exist; and unless a clear surgical indication is found, a hysterectomy should be a last resort for abnormal uterine bleeding ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Had a tubal ligation and it was difficult because of all the scar tissue from trauma. They had to use a scope. How dangerous would a hysterectomy be?
Hysterectomy: Every surgical procedure, including hysterectomy, must be evaluated in terms of risks and benefits. The determination must be made by you, your ob/gyn and your loved ones, on an individual basis. Internal adhesions (scarring) adds some risk to the procedure; however, if you have uterine cancer, or severe bleeding, the real benefits will still very likely outweigh the potential risks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have had a partial hysterectomy and tubal ligation about 5 years ago. The last month and a half i been nauseous/vomiting/food cravings am i preg?
Possibly: In partial hysterectomy, the uterus is surgically removed, leaving the ovaries and cervix. The ovaries produce eggs that are reabsorbed by the body. However, in rare cases, if the woman is sexually active, the egg can be fertilized and start to grow in the abdominal area, creating an ectopic pregnancy. See a doctor and have a pregnancy test as soon as possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Many factors: Your chances are based on several factors, including your prior fertility, the tubal status after repair as well as presence of any male factor fertility issues. The biggest factor is age of the female partner. At age 48, your fertility declines significantly making it very difficult to conceive spontaneously even if you had not had a prior tubal ligation. Please see a fertility specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Out of the loop: Normal menstruation depends only on 1) a funtioning endometrium, 2) an open cervix, and 3) a hormonal sequence (estrogen then progestin, then progestin withdrawal) from the ovaries in response to timed hypothalamic/pituitary signals. Thus, a woman with a working uterus, endometrium, ovaries, and pituitary can have a period. Notice the fallopian tubes are not part of the loop. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Clipping vs scarring: There are two ways of doing this. The first, more traditional, is to surgically clip the tubes, tying each end so fertilization cannot occur. A newer way is to insert a coil (example: essure) that causes the tube to constrict and scar down, no longer allowing passage of sperm upward, or eggs downward. This is usually performed without surgery so it can be less expensive and faster recovery. ...Read more
