Mama to two awesome kids. Wife to a wonderful, attached, loving husband. I love my job-- I'm a Midwife, Doula and Childbirth Educator, Classes forming now!
I heard that it causes hormonal problems because it cuts off the blood supply to the ovaries, so a lot of women who get tubals end up needing hysterectomies within 5 years. I can't remember where I read that though, and I haven't done much research myself.
I LOVE MY TUBAL!!! Wooohooo tubal!
Seriously, I haven't had any problems. I was the one who never ever wanted to be pregnant again, so I figured I was the one to have the procedure. Plus dh has some chronic health issues--asthma and allergies--and I don't, so that was another deciding factor. I was of the mindset--if I die, he remarries and wants to have kids, cool. If he dies and I hook up with someone else, I STILL don't want to have any more pregnancies. So the tubal was the best decision for us.
To each their own; you should definately view it as permanent, not something that might be reversible. Be comfortable with not ever having any more babies. Ever.
