Tubal Ligation Ovulation Pain
Ever since I've had my tubal ligation I've been in horrible pain. Every time I ovulate or have my period the pain is unbearable. What can I do?
Talk to your doctor: While you could have some scar tissue from the tubal ligation causing pain, it is more likely that your previous contraceptive was treating the pain and your problem now isn't the surgery but the fact that you have stopped that contraceptive.

To prevent pregnancy: If you cannot utilize other methods of birth control and feel you have completed your family. Tubal ligation does not prevent venereal disease.

Colpotomy tubal: An essure procedure is a trans-vaginal procedure that blocks the tubes via hysteroscopy (slim camera through the cervix).

Not too many docs do this one since essure is easier & doesn't need gen anesthesia. Hope that helps. ...Read more
