    Post tubal ligation syndrome (PTLS or PTS) is an an iatrogenesis condition meaning doctor-caused or doctor produced. Many women suffer post tubal ligation syndrome after having a tubal ligation.

    Below  is a list of symptoms that are associated with post tubal ligation syndrome.

    Post tubal ligation syndrome is often the result of a rapid decline of estrogen/progesterone hormone levels caused by the blood supply being damaged to the ovaries during the TL surgery.  Depending on the damage to the veins and capillaries, blood volume to the ovaries may slightly decrease or can be eliminated completely which is called isolated ovarian syndrome   (common with hysterectomy operations). Many of the symptoms of PTS are associated with menopause, hormone shock, or of having an estrogen/progesterone imbalance.

    Other symptoms, such has heavy painful periods may be caused by a hormonal imbalance, could be caused by adenomyosis (bought on by uterus muscle and tissue being damaged, effected by the TL surgery impairing the blood supply to areas of that organ/muscle) or a combination of both.  Pain also can be caused by retro bleeding backing into the sealed fallopian tubes.

    Other theories of PTS and the hormonal imbalance that results after a TL is that target or receptor cells that are important in the relay of hormonal messages are damaged, destroyed, and or removed during the TL surgery.  These receptor cells act like a telephone, sending messages to the brain.   These  target/receptor cells are located within the fallopian tube.

    With this in mind, it's possible for a woman to have both her ovaries still functioning to some degree (if blood supply was not damaged), have no major problems with her uterus (again if blood supply was not damaged to that organ), and still be experiencing PTS from a hormonal imbalance caused by change in her hormonal message relay system due to receptor cells being removed.

    The only way to find out for sure if you have a hormonal imbalance or are menopausal  is to be properly hormone tested.

    There are things that need repaired inside. When tubal ligation is performed, messages the brain sends to the reproductive system are disrupted and the body begins to function abnormally. Scar tissue and thick adhesions that can form later, as well. Retrograde bleeding into the uterus can occur. Thus, the uterus becomes larger and scar tissue is created, stretching the ligaments that hold it in place. Then, endometrial cells can invade the uterus, creating adenomysis (edometriosis of the uterus). The uterus can become more than twice it's normal size, with the adenomyomas penetrating deep into the uterine walls. Subsequently, submucosal tumors can form. When a patient has adenomyosis, the doctors normally recommend hysterectomy; But, most of the time, surgery can restore the body to as close a pre-tubal ligation state as possible.

    The first step in curtailing your symptoms and avoiding future damage is to get a Tubal Reversal. Many claim to be knowledgeable about Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome and repairing damage, but through my research, I found that they are not being honest. They do reversals on many women who are trying to get pregnant, but also have PTLS symptoms. Those women often have their symptoms alleviated; Thus, the doctors claim they work with PTLS. The reality of it, I found, is that none of them have even read about PTLS, let alone studied it at all. Furthermore, most do not believe in PTLS, but many will tell you they do just to get you as a patient. I spent seven months researching and talking with doctor offices across the country and was quite disconcerted.
