I regret ever getting my tubes tied..and just hours after getting it done too.
I remember sitting in my hospital bed with my fresh new baby, crying in the arms of a nurse because I just knew I made the worst decision ever. My youngest is now 6, and I'm only 31 and I crave a new baby SO bad. I sometimes snap back to reality though, and say "4 is enough!" but I still want to have THAT option, kwim?
If I had my time back I would have waited at least a few weeks or months even...after he was born to get them done. I decided to get them done while I was 40 lbs overweight (preg weight) cranky and just wanting that baby OUT..not a good time to plan such a huge decision. Yanno?
I've recently started to investigate the costs of a reversal, but unfortunatly even IF I could afford the procedure, I may just be too high risk to get it done. I had high bp while pregnant and had 4 sections..so it may just be a NO GO anyhow.
As for pain; the procedure itself was done immediately after my c-section; so the pain from my tubal wasn't even felt. I was up and around even after the section within hours..walking around the hospital hallway with my baby.
I'm not here to scare you off of getting it done..some people just KNOW 100% that they're done..I wasn't sure at all. It was just a snap decision..that has caused me so much grief.
But thats ME..and not everyone is like ME. Thank god! ha ha
