Post tubligation

I had my tubligation operation on Feb. 2, 2006.  I am 26 and never wanted children and found a doctor after 6 years of looking that would do the procedure. Well in the last few months since my operation I have experienced  depression, periods every two weeks with the most horrible pain.  I have to change tampons every two hours from heavy bleeding.  My mood swings are unbeleivable I can be fine one moment and want to take your head off the next.  I am afriad and really don't know if this has to do with my tubligation but I have never felt this way before and it is scarey.  My depression is affecting my work, my family and friends relationships.  I'm at my wits end but don't know what to do about it.

Sounds like serious complications to me, and definitely should see your doctor as soon as possible!

I agree, im almost 30 and I just had a tubal cauterization done in March of 2006 and have felt the same thing. My doctor has offered to put me on a anti-depression to help me through it, but I want to see if i can do it on my own first. Talk to your doctor and see what he says.
