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.
Ovulation. A tubal ligation only blocks your fallopian tubes. Your should still have your periods because your ovaries as well as your uterus continue to function normally after a tubal ligation.

Why can't I get a Filshie tubal ligation while I'm on my period?

Hypocoagulation. When women are on their menstrual period their blood does not clot the same way it does outside their menses, i.e., it takes longer to clot. Some surgeons avoid doing surgery during women's menses to minimize the risk of bleeding.

I had a tubal ligation four years ago. Ever since, I get a severe ovary pain for 24 hours (i am laid up) with each period. Why am I having this pain?

Not sure. The fallopian tube can have spasms and can cause pain sometimes after a tubal ligation but its uncommon. If pain is severe and persists, you may need to get them surgically removed. Best wishes Dr M.

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...).

See a doctor. The menstrual cycle has nothing to do with the tubal ligation. Needs to be evaluated.
No need to suffer. At 33 you should not have to suffer like pre menopausal symptoms, must see your gynecologist to regulate your periods, may need hormonal replacement therapy.

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.

, need gynecologist. To check why, usually pregnacy test even though tubal. Then pelvic ultrasound, tubals cause alot of cramps and 4x likelyhood of hysterectomy later but you are very young for even that.

Infections &  hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do  a home pregnancy test.   there are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle.
