I'm writing because, I had my tubal ligation in 2005. Ever since, my very mild and shirt periods gradually became severely painful and heavy, lasting days longer than what they used to last. Last night, I was in so much pain I couldn't sleep. Can having a tubal ligation cause this? Can having one cause me to have ovarian cysts, or tumors? Maybe this is happening because I am just aging, but I was always a healthy person. Never had any problems until my tubal. Any answers?
