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

On 7/3 I had a tubal ligation and nexplanon removed. Still no period should I be worried or is this normal?

On 7/3 I had a tubal ligation and nexplanon removed. Still no period should I be worried or is this normal?

Probably: It will probably take a while for it all to get out of your system.How long? That probably varies, But the best sign is development regular periods (or getting pregnant). So decide if you want to get pregnant or not and act accordingly. If not, get on an alternate form of birth control toute suite (that's "pronto" for those of you in the West...). ...Read more

I had tubal ligation in 2011. I had ablation in may 2013. I still have a period, but it's much lighter. Do i need to take more birth control?

I had tubal ligation in 2011. I had ablation in may 2013. I still have a period, but it's much lighter. Do i need to take more birth control?

Not necessarily: You would have no need for birth control if your tubes are blocked. Hormonals could be used to stop your menses altogether, as a convenience, or a touch up ablation might finish the job.I would discuss this with the gyn who did the procedure to see what might be best for your situation. ...Read more

Having terrible periods after tubal ligation never had this problem before could the tubal be the problem?

Menses after tubal: A tubal doesn't change your ovaries or the behavior of your uterine lining which is what controls your period. For many who have been on birth control in the past, the pills regulated your periods. After a tubal, you stop taking birth control pills and your cycles become what they always would have been off of birth control. ...Read more

Hormonal fluctuation: can throw off your schedule, and that can be related to stress or infection, or thyroid dysfunction. Some women your age will start to see some irregularity as menopause approaches. It is unlikely that you are pregnant after your tubal, but it does happen, and a test would reassure you about that. Give it a few months and then discuss with your doctor if still a problem. ...Read more

Are irregular periods normal after a bilateral tubal ligation? I had one 8/13/2012, and my period started back in september. I've missed 2 periods

Maybe: If you just had a baby or just stopped birth control pills around the time of your tubal ligation, it could be normal. Check a pregnancy test just to make sure you are not pregnant. If you continue to skip periods, see the doctor who performed your tubal ligation and get his/her advice. ...Read more
