Since tubal libation had problems have all symptoms of ptls. How is post tubal ligation syndrome treated?
Possibly: Of course one can be allergic to anything. The clip itself is titanium, which is very non-allergenic with a silicone lining. The symptoms would be scar formation which could feel like pain in the pelvis. A laparoscopy could definitely confirm if an allergic reaction had occurred. ...Read more
What symptoms after a tubal ligation would you suggest it be reversed?! I have had horrible bleeding that last 7-10 days then start 4-7 days later
Excessive bleeding: Excessive bleeding post tubal ligation is a good reason to see a GYN MD and make sure that there isn't another GYN problem causing this issue first and foremost. If there isn't then unfortunately your options include endometrial ablation or hysterectomy rather than tubal reversal which is expensive and not a guarantee of bleeding cessation success. ...Read more
Does Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome Really Exist? Will a reversal absolve the symptoms? My OB doesn't believe me, I've been suffering since.
Adhesions: Please see a second opinion consult with general surgery. Studies show that adhesions between intestines sometimes happen after surgery and can cause abdominal pain. You need a full history and physical with vital signs and an exam to rule out several possible problems and probably some imaging to non invasively look at your problem. ...Read more
I want to know what can I do about my post tubal ligation bleeding and spotting that's been going on for 5 months and I have symptoms that came with it?
Options available: Assuming you have been evaluated by your MD and you are not bleeding because of an abnormal condition, such as fibroids, adenomyosis, hyperplasia, then the bleeding can be treated medically with hormones (such as birth control pills, Depo Provera, (medroxyprogesterone) to name a few), or surgically by burning the lining of the uterus by a procedure called endometrial ablation. If all fails, hysterectomy can be done. ...Read more

Does tubal ligation decrease blood flow to ovaries and if so will a reversal help restore it. Also, do you think ptls a real thing? I have many symptoms
Does not restore: Once a vessel is tied off it is dead, tubal reanastamosis only restores tubal patency. Smoking further damages tubes and blood flow. Ptls likely occurs, but the majority of problems attributed to it are actually from other sources often managed by non invasive means. ...Read more
I currently had a bilateral tubal ligation with my 2nd C-section 6 months ago and I been having tender pain and few other symptoms what can I do?
I have had two light periods back to back with the second even lighter. I've suffered from endometriosus losing an ovary and tube. I had a tubal ligation after third baby. No other unusual symptoms. What could be going on?
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
Depends on procedure: Most patients now opt for an in office procedure called the essure. The one I did this morning in my office took less than two minutes and the patient and I were chatting the entire time. ...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
Everyone's different: If you are worried about pain after sterilization then you might want to consider the essure tubal as I have seen very little pain experenced after it as there is no cutting or burning with it. ...Read more
Is it being done at the time of a c-section or just the tubal? If done at the time of c-section, you won't even know you had it. If as a stand-alone surgery, you will have pain from the incision (s) but it resolves very quickly.
Your obgyn should be able to give you specific details of how he/she does it.
Good luck. ...Read more

If u r considering, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Not often: The rate of tubal failure depends on the technique used but is roughly 1/400. When I have a patient experience a tubal failure I recommend removing the tubes completely so that it does not happen again. The lowest rate of tubal failure is with essure in patients who do the confirmatory xray (hsg) 3 months after the procedure. ...Read more
