I'm 31 weeks today with baby #2 (preg #3, I had an ectopic 5 years ago, one of the reasons I'm asking this). I am going to have a planned c-section and am considered a tubal ligation at the same time. I am concerned about the aftermath of the TL. I've heard many women regret having the TL because of what they call post tubal ligation syndrome. I've also heard of many women who had the procedure and are fine. So I'm wondering, does anyone have an opinion? I also worry about the possibility of ectopic pregnancy, since I've already had one, would my risk be even higher?

I had the procedure over 3 years ago and was glad. No more worrying about birth control. Yes, I know there is still a small possibility of pregnancy but since I keep track of my periods, I'd know if it was late and would take a test and would know if I were pregnant and to get checked out.

I want the TL too though because i think 3 is enough for us to handle considering how close in ages they i have no idea what i 'll do and dont want to regret my decision either

Yeah, I just don't want to trade ease of birth control for horrible periods.
