Re: Tubal ligation, pain, blood clots?
I also had a tubal about 2 1/2 years ago, and have been dealing with agonizing periods and a lot of clots for about a year now. I actually talked to a doc about it this week. He gave me some low dose bc pills to try for a few months, if that doesn't do it we will look into "more aggressive" options. He said that the clots are causing the other problems. The way he explained it, as the uterus tries to push out the clots (as opposed to just fluid) it spasms and releases hormones. The spasms are painful, and the hormones are causing the headaches and other symptoms I have. He talked to me for a long time, and there are a lot of other factors at play, but the clots are the big one (at least for me).
The most obvious thing for me was that before the surgery, I was using hormonal methods of bc, and had been for years! So it isn't caused by the tubal, I was just using other methods that helped my symptoms before. Does that make sense?
