Why do you still get your period after having a tubal ligation?

Why do you still get your period after having a tubal ligation?

Out of the loop: Normal menstruation depends only on 1) a funtioning endometrium, 2) an open cervix, and 3) a hormonal sequence (estrogen then progestin, then progestin withdrawal) from the ovaries in response to timed hypothalamic/pituitary signals. Thus, a woman with a working uterus, endometrium, ovaries, and pituitary can have a period. Notice the fallopian tubes are not part of the loop. ...Read more

I had my tubal ligation over 9 months ago. Each month after I stop bleeding a couple days to a week goes by and I start spotting. Is this normal?

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

Different type of tubal ligation?

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
