So after my reg Dr apt on Thursday I was thinking about birth control and what we would use after. I know that I am done, my body knows that I am done. We have used many forms and from the 8 little blessings we've had only one, that's right ONE, was planned. We did have success with both the copper and the Mirena IUDs but that was mostly due to forced abstinence due to it causing irritation for either Toby (copper) or me (Mirena). We have used four different pills, all eventually failed, patch- fail, condoms-fail. We have great success with failure lol!
So after trying all pregnancy to convince Toby to have his nutties cut and him not complying, I set up my tubal. I would have had it done right after delivery but the hospital I am delivering at does not perform them (darn!). So now I will have to go back about a month postpartum and have it done out patient. I am very nervous, the most I've been put under for was to have my wisdom teeth pulled and I doubt I was tubed for that. Do they leave the tube in until you wake up or is it out by that time? I know I will freak out if I wake up and it's in.
I would love to have some of my fears put to rest like how much pain is it immediately after? How long are you in pain? What is the recovery time? How long does the procedure take?
