Hi All,

I'm considering Tubal Ligation. I've done it all in regard to birth control. I currently have a Mirena in place but after 12 months of feeling like a stinky, dripping tap, severe mood swings, menstrual symptoms I've hardly had before and heart palpitations (not sure if this one is related), I'm having it removed.

I don't want to go on any other hormonal method (The Pill, Depo-provera, Implanon etc) and have finished my child bearing. I'm 42 and have two grown children, plus my partner has two children and we don't want any more.

My main concern are the changes to my cycle post-op and any other symptoms. Given this is permanent - I want to thoroughly investigate and re-investigate the possible side effects...

Any thoughts?
