Hello and Welcome!

I've never had a tubal ligation so I can't speak from personal experience.

hello!!
I am 25, I have two children & I just had this procedure done on the 17th of May, Recovery was a lot better than I expected it to be! The hardest part was sitting up for about a week, it was really hard. I have a huge bruise on my stomach but it's almost gone now, The gas I heard so much about wasn't bad at all, nothing like I imagined it would be! (I had horrible gas pains when I was pregnant & this gas didn't even hurt!!) I checked into the hospital at 6:30am & was home before 12pm that day....
Honestly, no sadness. I actually feel relieved! & I'm excited that I don't have to worry about getting pregnant... the only thing I'm a bit concerned about is the Post Tubal ligation syndrome, I've heard of it, but I'm not sure how common it is, I plan to ask my doctor at my follow up appointment! If you have any more questions feel free to ask!!
