I didn't have mine done with a C/S but on day 3 after #5 and regret the decision to this day.
It is a very minor procedure either at C/S or as a solo procedure but I am someone who had a shocking menstrual time post TL and emotionally I don't think I was  truly prepared.
I ended up with a hysterectomy 5 years later after all those years of extreme bleeding. Whether it was the TL or not I am not sure but it seems to be quite a coincidence.
As PP have said there is a higher risk of failure if done immediately post C/S and some Obstetricians will say no.
Good luck.

I am due to have this when I have baby no three in April and this post is scaring the s&%t out of me  sad.gif    I had a really bad reaction to the Mirena in April (went metal, took 4 months of medication and CBT to recover, am allergic to condoms and go nuts on the pill also.  I was thinking after 3rd child TL was going to be my salvation.  Also DP is younger than me and too young to have the snip

My mum had tubal ligation syndrome for nearly 25 years after her procedure. Flooding every month and nearly always needing to take couple of days of work.

Deeply regrets it.

She could never take hormonal contraception due to a blood clotting  disorder she has.

So it certainly could not be blamed on previously being on the pill like some drs like to claim.
Or her age. She was only 31 when she had it after four children and a history of pain free normal cycles.

She has four daughter ( me being one of them) and begs us to not to even contemplate it.
She has friends who have also experienced similar.

Sure the majority of time therox endure will have no side effects.

But I hate it that the medical community seems to be in great denial that it exists.

I had mine done when I had my twins 3 months ago (3rd c-section). I have just had my first period it was quite heavy but seeing as I havent had a period for 12 months Im not suprised. SO far no problems but will see how my next few periods are I have always had heavy periods though

I had a tubal at the same time as a c-section for baby number 7 - at my request - 9 years ago.
For a while all was good but after a while I got really really heavy periods lasting weeks.
Major flooding but no pain.
in 2011 I had an operation for a D & C and they also put the mirena in to help with the bad periods.
Its much better now but the mirena is not what I wanted.
sounds like bad periods are a big bad side affect for many.

We werent told about the failure rate by the dr but by friends but thankfully we have had no failures!

Hysterectomy due to heavy bleeding after a TL is so common. I don't understand why DRs dismiss the side affects. I was under the head OB at my hospital and even she said there are no side affects. She couldn't understand why I wouldn't get it done (I was over 40). I don't get it?

I suffered for years from a hormonal imbalance that caused heavy beading, extremely painful AF and infertility (and other symptoms). Every time I got a period it was hell, I couldn't even eat I would be so sick. There is no way in hell I was having a TL and risk possibility getting side affects.

I have read all the posts on tubal ligation during c section and I am a bit scared.  The after effects of heavy periods is worrying me but I dont know how I got pregnant to begin with as I havent had a period in 4 years and was told by a gyn a few years ago that I couldnt have any more children, then bang, I got pregnant.  If you weren't getting periods before a tubal ligation, does not mean that you will definitely get them afterwards, how can I find this out?  I have my next appt late July but because it is worrying me it would be nice to know before that.  Any help?
