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?

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

Bleeding.: There is nothing about the 'tubal ligation' that would cause irregular bleeding. However, if you stopped any birth control before the procedure you might have some irregular bleeding. Also when the procedure is done there is a device in the uterus that can stir up some bleeding. It will proprobably resolve in the next month or two. ...Read more

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

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

Probably normal: This is probably a normal variation. A tubal ligation is the best type of contraception available. And very rarely allows for pregnancy. The most likely cause of your symptoms is a fluctuation in your hormone levels causing a shift in your menstrual cycle. There are many ways this can happen, but usually the cycle resumes on its own. ...Read more

How long does bleeding last after a vaginal delivery and tubal ligation? Also do you start having menstral like cramp a week after all this?

How long does bleeding last after a vaginal delivery and tubal ligation? Also do you start having menstral like cramp a week after all this?

Totally depends: It's believed breastfeeding & massage of the uterus causes accelerated uterine contractions (crampy) & thus faster termination of the PP bleeding. Heavy bleeding should stop before you leave the hospital. If you have a blood dyscrasia, like Factor V Leiden or a hemophilia, you will bleed much longer. If you keep bleeding, develop a fever & bleeding smells bad, get checked for retained placenta. ...Read more

Ablation: You need to consult with your local gynecologist. Typically an ultrasound of your uterus is done, measuring the thickness of lining and uterus size. The risks/benefit analysis will then be discussed with you. Bring a good friend for this discussion. The novasure is very effective at slowing down menstrual symptoms. ...Read more
