Question for women who've had sterilization.

This post is for my mum. She had a sterilisation 20 years ago after giving birth to me so she wouldn't have any more children. My mum is 61 years old. I was wondering if women who have had a sterilisation to stop you from conceving again could reply to this or women who know about it.

Well the problem is this. My mum has a very hard, swollen tummy and has done for a few years now. She does not have IBS or anything like that but she has got a history of having 2 benign tumors (polyps) removed from her Uterus and Womb. I am wondering if anyone else who has had the sterilisation also has a swollen tummy like my mums? Even when my mum loses weight (shes smack on normal weight for her) her tummy still sticks out. She honestly looks like she is 4 and a half months pregnant.

Thank you.

Nope, I don`t have that problem. It sounds like she should discuss this with her doctor.

Good luck!

Re: Question for women who've had sterilisation.

Hiya Rosanne. Oh ok. I thought (well was hoping) it might be related to the sterilisation. Do you know of anything that can cause this? She is in very good health but does experience a lot of gas ( sounds like a quacking duck lol).

Re: Question for women who've had sterilisation.

fibroid tumors can cause this. they are usually benign and shrink upon menopause. i have a couple. i have been sterilized but they are not caused by that. she should see her doc. God bless

Re: Question for women who've had sterilisation.

My mums been on menopause now for well over 10years. She should be coming to the end of that soon. I think she might be because shes not having hot flushes as often as she used to. She did have 2 polyp tumors removed from her uterus and womb last year. Benign luckily. Will she need a scan to look for these fibroid tumors? Thank you x
