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

What are the chances of getting pregnant 11 years after having a tubal ligation; done 3 months after giving birth.

What are the chances of getting pregnant 11 years after having a tubal ligation; done 3 months after giving birth.

While quite low: Pregnancy is not impossible after tubal ligation. Depending on how the procedure was performed, "fail rates" while low, are non-zero. So, if you believe you're pregnant, take a hpt AND see your OB ASAP so that if you are pregnant you can start proper care or have all possible decisions open to you. Best of luck!! ...Read more

Not menopause: Menopause can only be diagnosed after no menses for 12 months and fsh level of 20. Estrogen levels fluctuate a lot on a daily basis and are not very reliable. An estrogen level check on day 3 after your menstrual period is somewhat helpful. I wouldn't be too concerned about it. ...Read more

Why is nexplanon have a higher effectiveness rate then other birth control options or tubal ligation?

Why is nexplanon have a higher effectiveness rate then other birth control options or tubal ligation?

Highly effective: The main reason nexplanon is so effective is that it does not require that you remember to do something - the largest cause of birth control pill failure is forgetting to take the pill. Tubal ligation has a very low failure rate, but it is possible for the surgery to fail to close the tubes completely (the reported rate of failure of tubal ligation is up to 1 in 200 (1 in 2000 for nexlanon) ...Read more
