    should I have a baby and get tubes tied?
    LoganNHaleighsMom posted:
    Let me give some background information to help. I am a 21 year old mother of a 2 1/2 year old and 1 year old. Both of my children were born via c-section, the first due to preeclampsia. Since my daughter was born last July I have been having a lot of gyno related issues, in December I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks pregnant, a few months later I started having severe abdominal pain, I went to the hospital several times and the last time they noticed I had a cyst rupture and I was bleeding internally. I figured that was what the pain was from, however the pain did not stop... I went to the ObGyn and they did a lapriscopy and discovered I had Endometriosis, that was 2 months ago. They removed the Endometriosis and said I should not have any further issues. I have been running a fever for 4 months straight EVERY DAY, it ranges from 99.5 to 101, Some days my abdomin is very swollen and hard and I have not had a period. I am having alot of pain, swelling, dizziness, and painful intercourse. My husband and I want to have one more child and we have had people tell us it would be better to have another child now so I can either have my tubes tied or a hysterectomy? Again I am 21 years old and do not know what to do my Doctor is not much help!!! PLEASE ANY ADVICE OR KNOWLEDGE IS APPRECIATED!! I STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY BODY

    Do you know if it would be dangerous for you to have another baby?
