Do You Have These Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome Symptoms?

Jun 24, 2008
Post tubal ligation syndrome is the name applied to all those different symptoms you have been suffering since having your tubes tied. At least, if you have run across this article, most likely that is what you are interested in learning about. Many times it is simply known by the initials PTLS or PTS.

You may have run into it with your own doctor or you may have learned about it while researching the Internet trying to find out just what is wrong with you, but you probably have heard that most doctors believe ptls to be a medical myth. However, since you have been looking you have probably found sites that list anywhere from 35 to 45 different symptoms. In this article, I'm going to relate the symptoms learned first hand from the women who are suffering from them.

Among the stories I share her is the one of Shannon's symptoms. She had a loss of libido, anxiety attacks, mood swings, weight gain, depression and acne. Her periods had turned awful. While they were only 7 days long, she was unable to leave her home for the first two days due to extremely heavy flow. Her words were that she felt on "the verge of hemorrhaging" with very large clots. She also had terrible pms.

Amanda told me her symptoms from post tubal ligation syndrome included mood swings and terrible depression. She also began spotting mid cycle. She had heavy periods, extreme fatigue, terrible migraines, and loss of libido. She finally went to her doctor expecting to be put on antidepressants. However, the doctor wanted to put her on birth control. Her doctor said, "Most women end up on birth control after a tubal ligation to regulate their hormones." Would you have had one if you knew you were still going to need to be on birth control still? But fortunately that is only one solution and not necessarily the best.

Amber was another young lady who suffers from pts in her 20s. She has no sex drive, hair loss, and an irregular period. Seems that these are major symptoms that we run into over and over again. I don't think the doctors can put these down to aging as Amber is only in her mid 20s at the time of writing this article.

Christie like so many women who suffer from this after effect of tubal ligation had mood swings with crying spells and uncontrollable fits of rage. She thinks this was the biggest problem she had due to her religion besides being bedridden while she suffered through her periods. They were eight days long and very painful. Besides these, she also suffered with hair loss and loss of libido. Her hair loss was bad enough she had to begin to style her hair differently to try to hide it. She had depression such that her doctor put her on an antidepressant. Of course, her doctor just told her she was getting older when she sought help.

Maybe this is the first time you have heard about this syndrome and been able to put a name to what you have been suffering yourself. If you are finding that the above stories of symptoms of post tubal ligation syndrome seem to be like what you are suffering, then you should seek support with others who have gone through the same as you. Do some research online if you need more information about it as well. Check out just what can be done to help relieve some of these symptoms.
