What is getting a tubal ligation like?

Depends. Is it being done at the time of a c-section or just the tubal? If done at the time of c-section, you won't even know you had it. If as a stand-alone surgery, you will have pain from the incision(s) but it resolves very quickly. Your obgyn should be able to give you specific details of how he/she does it. Good luck.
