c-section and tubes tied Lock Rss

Hi,
I have had a emergency caesarean with baby one, a vbac with baby two
( premmie) a elective c-section with baby three and having a elective
c-section with baby four plus tubes tied.
Im just wondering if the recovery is the same as a c-section or longer?? or if anyone else has had their tubes tied. Any info would be great cheers
Can you do that? Have your tubes tied when you have a CS??
I wanted that done at the same time I had my c section & I was told it is illegal to do so & that after 6 months, I could go back & get it done.

I was a public patient, so not like the specialist was trying to line her own pockets.

I had the most awful pregnancy, knows my previous history of womens problems & she was with me the whole way, so it is not like she would tell me cr@p just to get me back either.

Maybe as this is your 4th, & congrats by the way, they will do it for you.

I daresay the recovery would be the same though hun. All the best for a safe delivery of your little one & will await a happy birth announcement from you. smile
getting your tubes tied when you have CS is the perfect time and in NZ it is covered by all health stuff, so free. I got mine done after my 2nd- we were done. They will probably encourage you after your fourth- apparently they wait til the third to encourage you. Wild Hibiscus may not have been able to because it was her first and it may also be an age thing (I was 33) that made it illegal.

It did not take any longer to recover and it only makes the op last about ten minutes longer than when they just take the baby out. I could feel the internal stitches this time though and I couldn't after my emergency one. Dunno if it was being more rushed to recover, the different drugs or the TL. I do now have a completely different period and I can still feel myself ovulate like I always could. They said that might stop.
BTW sex is so much nicer when you know you won't get pregnant.

A friend of mine recently had her tubes tied whilst having a c/s - it was her 5th baby though, perhaps that was why they had no probs doing it? She had no issues that I know of from her tubal ligation, though her c/s wound did pop open a few times - I guess it's hard not to overdo it when you have so many kids already at home lol. My aunt was back at work on Monday after having her tubes tied on Thursday afternoon, so it can't be too bad, I suppose you'd avoid lifting etc, same as c/sec anyway. All the best with your new bub and hope the op and recovery go well xx
Thanks for all the info ladies smile
Im 34 now and living in darwin, I was given the option with baby three but we knew we wanted four. I was hoping it was just the same recovery but i ran into a lady at baby clinic ( baby 3 is 11 months) and told me it took 8 weeks for her to recover !!! I think everyone recovers differant and as long as you dont do anything silly you should be right.

I fall pregnant if i use hubbys towel so
Im looking forward not having to worry about babies lol
Happy our family is complete,
worried on now Im going to cope,
sad that no more babies for me
and excited to meet our new addition
thanks again

Can you do that? Have your tubes tied when you have a CS??


Yes smile I will have my mum here to help with the other children, and not have to go for another op. I dont have any family living in the same state.
We have our own business so hubby taking too much time off is hard.

Do you live in aust? I had friends that couldnt get done because of their age. Im sorry you have had crap preganacy sad my first 2 were shockers thats why it took me so long to go back. are you going to go back and get your tubes tied?
I have severe endometriosis & was told at 26 years of age I could not have children.

Then when I fell pregnant at 36 years of age, specialist knowing my history etc, I thought I would be able to get it done.

Considering I was actually about to have a hysterectomy when I found out I was pregnant!

She informed me that it is illegal, as in, for anyone regardless of age or children until at least 6 months after the birth. She would then be legally allowed to perform the surgery.

So, no, not age restricted.
Hi,
i had a c/section at tubes tied 8 months ago. I don't believe my recovery was any different to my previous c-section.
But look into the side effects of having your tubes tied. I wish someone had told me to look into it.
You can end up with a lot heavier periods and more pain. I don't have more pain but my periods are now so heavy. I just wish i looked into it all before i had it done, otherwise i would have made DH do it.
goodluck
You'll definitely treat you last baby differently because you know it is your last- They get to be babies so much longer which is in my opinion a very good thing. Enjoy!

@Wild Hibiscus- so ridiculous that they wouldn't do it. Why should you have to go back for another major surgery? Happy to hear your earlier troubles ended up with a baby though. (sorry if I offended, they told me it was an age and amount of children restricted thing and discouraged me since it was only my second child.)
