just came across your post after typing into Google severe PMS syndromes after tubal ligation. Here is my story. I was never this depressed in my life and I PMS like crazy. When I had my last baby #4, it was a high risk pregnancy, the doc suggested to get my tubes tied. Since I almost died I agreed. I wasn’t told it had any side effects. After I had it done PMS wasn’t as bad but I had sudden facial hair growth, then depression….It has been 4 years and I can’t stand the two weeks before I get my period. My life is out of whack during the two weeks. When I looked up the symptoms for PTS i almost cried because I have more than half of the symptoms! Why doesn’t anyone inform you about this! I am glad I found your post now i can show my husband I am not nuts after all.
Thank you!
