II had mine done with my c section alittle over 5 years ago. I cant really say how recovery was compared to someone who just had a tubal BUT i did notice that i would have pain in that area during my cycles for a while. Some people say their periods r heavier and i do have heavier periods. I think its done laproscopically most of the time now so recovery shouldnt be to bad
I had mine done during my c-section too. I didn't really notice a big change right away bug my cycles now are out of control. I am never on any schedule. To the point that I have downloaded a period tracker app to try to predict my next period. My periods are ridiculously heavy now too. Like soak through a super plus tampon and backup super pad within an hour or so. I have spoken to my gynecologist because I am sure this isn't normal -but she insists everything is fine.
I wouldn't recommend it. I really wish that my husband's insurance would have covered a vasectomy. My "simple and quick recovery" surgery turned into an all day ER visit, Vicodin, and a " it'll be a while to heal and it will be painful" Apparently the surgeon nicked me and created a large hematoma in my stomach area. Two weeks later and I'm still having a lot of pain although I have finally weaned myself off the Vicodin.... I have a high tolerance for pain and this has just about done me in.
I had mine done in Oct 2012 and I am so glad I did! I had no pain what so ever from the gas or incision, I also did not take any pain medsI took it easy the day of the procedure and was back to normal the next day...
