Yes: Recovery after tubal ligation depends upon the method used if you've had general anesthesia and a procedure that entered the abdominal procedure ie a post partum tubal or laparoscopy recovery can be 5 to 7 days.

How many times could a tubal ligation fail?

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

How successful is a tubal ligation reversal & is there a time restriction on when it is best?

Varies: There is no specific time restriction, it works as well sooner and later. results vary with "how" the ligation was down. Generally use of clips (Hulka, Filshie) or rings (Yoon, Fallope) give the best reversals, postpartum (Pomeroy) type ligations are often also very good. Anything involving cautery ("burning") usually will give a less good result. ...Read more

I had a tubal ligation in 2004 and my periods usually last 6 days but this time it's slowing down pretty quick. What could be wrong?

I had a tubal ligation in 2004 and my periods usually last 6 days but this time it's slowing down pretty quick. What could be wrong?

Probably nothing: Menstrual cycle variation is normal, especially after age 35. If still uncertain, perform a pregnancy test now and in 1 week. If negative, cycles will usually return to normal. If positive, see your doctor immediately, due to the high risk of a life-threatening ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more

Can your cycle vary after a tubal ligation my period sometimes start by the third of the month and some times a week or two later

Can your cycle vary after a tubal ligation my period sometimes start by the third of the month and some times a week or two later

That : That would be unusual as tubal ligation usually does not affect the cycle. If your period has become irregular, please see your doctor for an evaluation if it is any heavier, very irregular, or you have spotting. Please be sure your pap smear is up to date. In extremely rare circumstances, women with a tubal ligation can become pregnant, so if your period is late or if you had any pain you would have to be seen immediately. ...Read more

This is the first time in my life my period hasnt stopped. I am 41 years old and have had a tubal ligation about 10 years ago. This is the 12th day ?

A few possibilities: Usually this is caused by hormonal irregularities or a problem with the clotting system. A clinical exam and probably blood tests are needed to determine the cause. The good news is that most of the time periods will return to normal. Best wishes. ...Read more
