Treatment for Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome
Post Tubal Ligation List of Symptoms
Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome strikes some women after having a tubal ligation or their tubes tied. Many times a tubal ligation is performed immediately following the birth of child. Because the woman has just given birth her body is trying to heal from childbirth. The woman has her tubal ligation and she and her baby go home to join the family. As she begins to heal from childbirth she also notices different changes going on with her body. She may dismiss them at first thinking things will improve over time. When things only get worse she consults with her physician.
When speaking with physicians and giving accounts of the various symptoms taking place, women are given different answers and not one mentions any type of treatment or cure. The following are the most common:
- You are just getting older and your body is changing.
- Nothing changes with your body after a tubal ligation.
- Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome does not exist.
- It’s all in your head and maybe you are depressed. We will prescribe you an antidepressant.
Walking away frustrated and humiliated these women know this is not in their heads and they need to find out if there is a cure. They do not want to live with the pain that has plagued them and they want their lives back.
