I have been searching and searching on these forums for days trying to find someone in the same boat as me! ALAS! Here you are! I had my tubes tied five years ago after baby number 3. I thought It was the right choice at the time, and for a few years (about 3) I was ok with the decision. However, I started regretting the decision when my little girl was around 3 years old. It was a slow nagging pain at first, but now - it is full blown regret! I am miserable over this decision, and I just cannot afford IVF, (which I "hear" is better), and tubal reversal sounds so scarey! I hear so many conflicting stories. But, we are close to getting the reversal done. I just hope it works!
I would never ever recommend this surgery. I don't care if you have 15 children! It is too permanant! And, my whole body has been a mess ever since. My periods are difficult (and they never were), now I am reading about post tubal ligation syndrome (which I believe I have), and I just never did enough research about it - and walla, just listened to my DOC like a big dope!
Well, I am interested in any info you might have picked up!!
