I had my tubal right after giving birth to my son. I had friends that suggested I would probably not go back if I waited until later.
I was very sore after the tubal. I felt that it really interferred with my first few days with my new baby. Also, I have have basically been pre-menopausal since then (night sweats, etc.) I have talked to at least three other mothers who have had the same issues. Please google side effects of a tubal ligation and make an informed decision. I wish I had done more research.
