Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome - Are You Just Old?

Jun 26, 2008
Since there have been reports about post tubal ligation syndrome going back to the 1950s, you could wonder why it seems like no one is interested in helping. If you have been looking line for some help in figuring out what is causing your symptoms, you have probably learned this. It makes you wonder just what is happening.

Using an article from medicinenet.com (please do a search at that site on post tubal ligation syndrome) as the source of information about what some doctors believe, we find out what Dr. Stephen Corson thinks about it. He has done a study about hormone levels in PTLS women versus those who did not have their tubes tied. He has decided that all these women who report symptoms are really just suffering from a combination of aging and discontinuing the usage of birth control pills.

What is really strange about this conclusion is that so many women simply don't fit into this category. However, no mention of this is made in the article so one is left wondering how the doctor explains symptoms in women who were in their 20s when they had a tubal ligation and started suffering from Post Tubal Syndrome, as it is also called, during the same decade of life. Nor does it explain the many women who had tubals done right after delivering a child. That means they weren't on birth control of any kind.

Just check out Miranda. She is 27 now and had her tubes tied in 2003 after the birth via C-section of her daughter. That means she was 22 when she had her tubal. With all the pain she was suffering, among other symptoms, from post tubal ligation syndrome, I doubt you could put it down to aging or to birth control pills. Fortunately, she has a doctor who took good notes and who supported her in having a tubal reversal. He's even looking more into ptls.

Then there is Linda who had her tubal ligation at 21 right after the birth of her child. For the next 14 years, Linda suffered headaches, mood swings, heavy heavy periods, and other symptoms. She spent most of her 20s, nine years, living with the after effects of her operation to ensure she had no more children. No warnings from her doctor either on possible side effects. This is certainly a case where neither aging nor birth control was the factor in PTLS.

Now let's look at Rebecca who had her surgery at the birth of her child as well. She even signed the papers for the surgery while in hard labor after having an epidural. Not exactly the best timing, I'm thinking, for clear cool reasoning nor being told about any side effects. But then most doctors don't believe ptls to be real. As Rebecca was only 33, I don't believe putting the post tubal ligation syndrome effects down to aging is a realistic answer either. Poor Rebecca thought she was going into early menopause at 33 due to some of the symptoms she suffered.

I am grateful to the women who allowed me to share their stories with you on this subject. As you can see, there are women who don't fit the mold of what many doctors believe to be the reason behind ptls. So what are these women to do? One thing they are prescribed for their symptoms just might surprise you. It is birth control pills. But taking birth control pills long term can have its own side effects.

What if you don't want to live the rest of your life, or until real menopause, on birth control. There are two other alternatives from which you can choose instead of just suffering from post tubal ligation syndrome. But both involve more surgery. The first is a hysterectomy with its own possible side effects. Please research this further if you choose to pursue it. The other is having a tubal ligation reversal done. Find the best surgeon to do this and chances are you find your life coming back to you.
