I had tubal ligation done 4 days ago and now I have severe throbbing pain. Is this normal?

This is not usual: Whether you had a laparoscopic surgery or a minilaparotomy procedure, you should normally be expected to feel better and better by day 4 "without severe throbbing pain". It would be best to notify your Gyn surgeon ASAP., seek a clinical evaluation and examination ASAP. And an emergent explanation for/treatment of your symptoms. ...Read more

I have a tubal ligation after I had my son 9 1/2 months ago. I have a normal 29day cycle. But now I'm spotting, I'm on CD 15. What could cause this?

I have a tubal ligation after I had my son 9 1/2 months ago. I have a normal 29day cycle. But now I'm spotting, I'm on CD 15. What could cause this?

See your OB: You don't need to ovulate to have spotting, and vaginal bleeding, if light, can happen normally at any day of the cycle. If heavy, dysfunctional bleeding needs to be evaluated for other possible causes, and a trip to the OB wiuld be well advised. The differential for dysfunctional bleeding is too long for this answer, please see an OB ASAP if the bleeding is heavy ...Read more

Possible related: Tubal ligation usually does not affect the regularity of your period. Having bleeding in between your normal periods is called intermenstrual bleeding. If the blood flow to your ovaries was compromised during your tubal ligation, which is actually uncommon, this could make intermenstrual bleeding occur. More than likely it is by chance that your periods are now different. ...Read more

Pregnancy test: Tubal ligations are very reliable but they do occasionally fail. Take a pregnancy test. If you are not pregnant then there are many reason's for a missed period such as hormonal shifts, early menopause, stress, and thyroid disorders. If you are not pregnant and do not get a period soon, see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

Just turned forty spotting during ovalation and I have tubal ligation done in 1999 is this normal?

Just turned forty spotting during ovalation and I have tubal ligation done in 1999 is this normal?

Ovulation spotting: As a woman ages, the ovaries require more stimulation from the pituitary to produce an egg at ovulation. This provides a large increase in estrogen production, and that level of estrogen drops to near zero just prior to ovulation. Similar to why bleeding occurs at your menses, degeneration of some of the lining of the uterus causes spotting to frank brief bleeding: i.e., it is normal. ...Read more

CSection & Tubal Ligation on 8/8. Normal cycle on 10/15. Now having cycles every 2 weeks. Is this normal? Cycles - 11/15, 11/30, 12/17.

Yes: Pregnancy and procedures like tubal ligation can sometimes "reset" the menstrual cycle/log at times. So, being so recently postpartum, my hunch is that there is probably not any real pathology (e.g. growth, tumors, etc...) going on here. Nevertheless, continue to monitor. If the symptoms persist for the next 3-4 cycles, get with your OB/GYN for further evaluation. ...Read more

See your Doc: Get a pregnancy test. This is the simplest thing to do. If positive, see your doc. If it's negative, you still need an evaluation to see if there's a problem with increasing abdominal size. Good luck to you. ...Read more

On 7/3 I had a tubal ligation and nexplanon removed. Still no period should I be worried or is this normal?

Probably: It will probably take a while for it all to get out of your system. How long? That probably varies, But the best sign is development regular periods (or getting pregnant). So decide if you want to get pregnant or not and act accordingly. If not, get on an alternate form of birth control toute suite (that's "pronto" for those of you in the West...). ...Read more

Tubal ligation done 2 years mirena (levonorgestrel) inserted july 2014 having painful abdominal spasms and extremely emotional. Is this normal?

Double therapy?: Your brief history sound a bit strange unless something is missed there. With tubal ligation done there is no need in additional contraceptive therapy with Mirena (levonorgestrel) device. As far as symptoms you are complaining of, yes Levonorgestrel (active ingredient in Mirena (levonorgestrel)) may cause it. Go to our PMD or GYN, get qualified advice after your entire history is reviewed and you are examined. ...Read more

My period is 4 days late, on the 3rd day I spotted once. I had a normal pap within 30 days. I had a tubal ligation done 5 years ago. I have low iron.

Probably normal: I believe you are experiencing the surprise of a woman who has always had regular periods & for the first time something is a little different. The tubal ligation essentially assures that you are not pregnant. Being 4 days late is really in the normal range. These changes may increase as you age. Good rule of thumb: OK to watch/wait for 10-14 days before contacting provider. ...Read more

30y/F Tubal ligation done 3yr ago I'm on 5th period this month 3-very heavy huge clots 4th light smelled/odd color, now orange/red blood, bloated, help!

May be an infection: It isn't likely that a tubal ligation done 3 years ago has anything to do with heavy bleeding 5 times in one month. This could have many causes including infection and you need to be evaluated immediately to determine and treat the cause before you become dangerously anemic. See your PCP, GYN, an urgent care clinic or the ER today. Hope you feel better fast. ...Read more

Maybe: If you just had a baby or just stopped birth control pills around the time of your tubal ligation, it could be normal.

Check a pregnancy test just to make sure you are not pregnant. If you continue to skip periods, see the doctor who performed your tubal ligation and get his/her advice. ...Read more

An Operative report in those records will determine if the Fallopian tubes were in fact ligated or interrupted. If all else fails, a GYN MD can perform either a HSG dye study or a Laparoscopy that visualizes the Fallopian tubes for ligation. ...Read more

What is the reason why tubal ligation is usually done right after giving birth?

What is the reason why tubal ligation is usually done right after giving birth?

Post-partum tubal: Because 1) she is in the hospital, 2) may be at risk for pregnancy after going home, 3) it is done easily through an incision right below the navel - the uterus is still large enough to access her tubes that way. The next opportunity is 6 weeks later; this requires laparoscopy because the smaller uterus is now behind the pubic bone, and her tubes can no longer be accessed easily from above. ...Read more
