Re: after the baby i would like to get my tubes tied anyone else planning this?

interesting that you would bring this up today. i just discussed this with my doctor this afternoon. i will most likely be getting an I.U.D. after this baby is born until my hubby decides when he will get a vasectomy. tubaligation is major sugery for women but is a good choice if you're definitely done. vasectomy is a minor outpatient procedure that is performed at the docs office and takes about 10 minutes. i am done having children since this is my third but the first with my new hubby. my ex-husband decided for both of us that we were done and had a vascetomy when my lil one was only one month old. He is not very happy that i'm pregnant again, but oh well, it's not his choice. i have heard many horror stories about i.u.d.'s in the past but they have brand new ones out that are wonderful and decrease your flow up to 90 % if you have a period at all. i was concerned about Not having periods, but my doc says that it's perfectly ok as long as you're healthy. this is just my personal choice. i will be delivering in a catholic hospital that will not allow tubaligations. and i also suggest that ppl be sure about their decisions and possibly even wait a certain amount of time after their baby is born. just wanted to share. i have considered a tubaligation also, but i have too much scar tissue from previous abdomenal surgery and i am not a good candidate for it. take care...

VALIEGIRL
A few years ago i was thinking of getting an IUD. I talked it over with a friend of mine hew doctor said it doesnt stop you from getting PG it aborts it when when you do get Pg. I didnt know if you new that or if was even correct.

Something to think about.

After this baby I am planning on having my tubes tied. This will be number 3 for me.

Re: after the baby i would like to get my tubes tied anyone else planning this?

What is an intrauterine device?

An intrauterine device, called an IUD for short, is a small, plastic, T-shaped stick with a string attached to the end. The IUD is placed inside the uterus to prevent pregnancy. Your doctor can place an IUD in your uterus during an office visit. Once in place, the IUD stays in your uterus until your doctor removes it.

How does it work?

The IUD prevents sperm from joining with an egg. It does this by making the sperm unable to go into the egg and by changing the lining of the uterus.

What are the advantages of an IUD?

The IUD has many advantages:

It's very effective in preventing pregnancy, because you're always protected from pregnancy and there's nothing to remember to do (for example, no pills to take).
It's the cheapest form of birth control in the long run.
An IUD can be removed by your doctor at any time.
It starts working right away.
There's a low risk of side effects.
Mothers who use an IUD can breast-feed safely.
Neither you nor your partner can feel it.

this is the info i found. thank you for sharing. the info that is found for i.u.d.'s can be somewhat outdated thou since the new ones are much, much better. hope this helps thanks again !!!

What is the procedure for a tubal ligation?

A small incision is made in the abdomen and the fallopian tubes are either cut, tied or blocked. A hospital visit is required but normal sexual intercourse can normally resume within one week. A tubal ligation does not mean that the body will enter a menopausal state. The egg is still produced every month but because the fallopian tubes are cut off from the uterus, the egg dissolves in the tube. To arrange a tubal ligation, call your doctor for a recommended physician in the field.

What are the effects of a tubal ligation?

Tubal ligation may cause a number of post operative complications. These include, but are not limited to: severe cramps, heavier periods, breakthrough bleeding and pelvic pain. In addition there may be some psychological effects of sterilization. Consult your physician for more information.


I am having one, this is my 3rd, so I am DONE!!!!

Hey just thought I would throw this in there.
My mom had an IUD when she got pregnant with me-you you don't always lose the baby if you get pregnant while you have an IUD <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> She actually went in to get it removed and get a D&C and get her tubes tied-and oops, there I was hanging out! So who knows!

Re: after the baby i would like to get my tubes tied anyone else planning this?

they are just as if not more effective than the pill (99%+). i never got prego on the pill so that is just the current choice for me. i wish i could have my tubes tied though. the new ones are quite a bit different than the ones they even had 5-10 yrs ago...heard this from my doc today and he is a high risk doc that specializes in infertility and surgery also. of course, a vasectomy would be the least painful for me. lol --quote-- "nothing is going down there witha pair of scissors", men, what sissy's.

Re: after the baby i would like to get my tubes tied anyone else planning this?

I want to have something done too. This is my second, and I am done. I am confused on what to do. I got preg. last year on birth control and had a miscarriage. My husband is scared to have a visectimy(sp?). He says it would just be easier for me to have my tubes tied while I am already in the hospital. But, I want to be able to breast feed. I plan on pumping even when I go back to work. Can you not do that after you have your tubes tied? And, can you still return to work in 6 weeks?

Re: after the baby i would like to get my tubes tied anyone else planning this?

Hi, this is my 3rd. pregnancy, I am due next week, I am planning on tying my tubes as well. Love kids but feel like this is a big enough family for me. I was going to get it done after my 2nd was born, but decided on having just 1 more. I will have the procedure done 6 wks. after the baby is born. The hospital I'm having the baby at is a religous hosp. and do not believe in birth control, so this is gonna be done at a surgery center.
good luck!

My hubby actually volunteered to get "the snip" done instead of me having to go through it. I've heard that is easier for the man anyway.

Re: after the baby i would like to get my tubes tied anyone else planning this?

it is NOT easier for the woman to have her tubes tied than it is for a man to get "snipped". A vasectomy is an out paitient surgery.

Re: after the baby i would like to get my tubes tied anyone else planning this?

Yeah, I was going to say when my brother in law had his done he was in and out-they just gave him an ice pack and some pain killers <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> He was in the military when he got it done and my sister said they only do them so many times a month so the whole waiting room was full of men who were gonna get fixed-my sister said it was funny to see all these men who looked like they were ready to pass out just thinking of walking through the doors to the doctor....I can just picture it-I guess those men have a little bit of an idea of what women go through!
