I had my second son 2 years ago and after he was born i had my tubes cut, ever since then I have regretted it almost every day. I feel like a part of me is missing since I can not have anymore children. My pregnancies were not the best experiences due to sickness and many pains so at the time it felt like something that I wanted at the time. If I had the money to have a reversal I would but I do not. Does anyone else feel like this, do you think these feelings will go away over time?
Yes. I went through the same thing after my tubal after having two children. I found out that by some miracle, that my BCBS covered a reversal. It worked. I had immediately got pregnant, miscarried. I then went on to have two successful pregnancies. My youngest are now 8,and 9.
I regret it for different reasons. I feel like my hormones are completely screwed up, my periods are definitely messed up from before, no sex drive (annoying), etc. I actually wished I had asked them to REMOVE everything at the time and do hormone therapy. No more kids, not more periods, no more screwiness. I have other things going on with me (the list is long) since I had my tubes tied. :(
Why do you regret it? Is it just that you want to have another baby? If so, what are your reasons for wanting another baby? What were the reasons you decided to have your tubes tied? I think if you do some soul searching and are honest with yourself you'll likely find that your instincts to have the tubal done were correct and that you're better off as you are now. I say this because I myself had my tubes tied when I had my 2nd child and I regretted it for a little while, but once I asked myself WHY, and really thought about it, I realized that the reasons were silly, things like I missed having little babies or it'd be nice to have a boy, and the reasons why I did it were still valid, things like I'd likely have to have another c-section, we couldn't afford another baby, I'd miss more work, etc. Given that reflection and some time, I came to realize I was 100% right to have it done and I've never regretted it since.
