NOT ALL WOMEN DEVELOP THIS SYNDROME AFTER A TUBAL LIGATION which is why the syndrome has been debated for so many years (it's very difficult to prove with diagnostic testing). My main goals in writing my story is to not only educate those that may not realize what is going on with their own bodies (as I didn't at the time it was happening) but to also inspire others... I'm living proof there is hope and healing by having a tubal reversal. PTLS is not a natural part of growing older, nor does a woman have to live in such agony. Everything the Dr.'s claimed was not related to my tubal got better after a reversal!
Then thank you for stopping by. There are so many women who suffer from PTLS, we felt the need to demonstrate just how many this condition has affected. We feel it is our duty to make sure that other women have the information they need about the risks of tubal ligation BEFORE they give their consent. Our only goal in twitterbombing is to spread the word about post tubal ligation syndrome. Please help us with our project by retweeting our tweets or creating one of your own using #WeDeserve2Know.
If you would like to help in any other way, please contact us through our education page by clicking here. We currently run all of our projects without funds. Through resources that have little to no cost we have already reached over 600 women in the last two months. We will continue to use the free resources available to us and hope that sometime in the future we will be able to raise funds to reach greater audiences. However, if you are one of our targets and would like to support our efforts financially, PLEASE use the message button on our Facebook education page, as widespread awareness on any grand scale is a highly unattainable goal without the funding of a very generous contributor.
Thank you very much for your time and effort.
PTLS Awareness Administrators
PTLS is known to exacerbate preexisting conditions, highlight previously unknown conditions, as well as create new symptoms. PTLS is often misdiagnosed as one or more of several similar conditions including: Depression, B12 Deficiency, Anxiety, Fibromyalgia, and Thyroid Hyper/Hypo Disorder. Menopause, which is the closest recognized condition to PTLS, shares many of the same symptoms but PTLS is thought to be a result of a rapid decline of estrogen/progesterone hormone levels caused by the blood supply being damaged to the ovaries during Tubal Ligation (just a theory however because many women that experienced several PTLS symptoms had normal hormone tests, yet a tubal reversal restored their health to previous levels of themselves equal to that of before Tubal Ligation, hormone levels were never verified to be found abnormal). The exact cause or medical theories thus far do not give full explanation as to why some women experience severe stabbing pain at time of ovulation, cystic ovaries, cystic tubes and symptoms more commonly associated with depression but are all very real symptoms none the less that many women struggle with for years, never knowing it all could possibly be related to having her tubes tied. Regret of a Tubal Ligation was once thought to be the reason women manifested these symptoms (a psychological side effect) but with the help of the internet so many women are speaking out and telling their stories. It's becoming more evident that these symptoms can manifest themselves in the absence of regret and are instead being learned about and named as PTLS only after researching their symptoms as a result of suffering.
Currently, because PTLS is not recognized in the medical community, you should first be tested for any other possible illness that are similar to PTLS. If you have already ruled out any other condition and you have not responded to alternative treatments, you may want to consider a tubal reversal surgery or a hysterectomy as both procedures are known to relieve the symptoms. Of the women who have experienced PTLS symptoms and could afford the surgery, a tubal reversal has been proven to cure 90% of those who suffer. A Hysterectomy has been proven to cure many of the symptoms as well but tends to leave patients drug dependent and hormone dependent indefinitely.
