....this was some advice from a close GF a couple days ago in a heart to heart about my new relationship and where it's going. I went back on BC in November after many, many years off. I'm sure I've been off it longer than some of you tpf'ers have been alive, LMAO! What I love? shorter, lighter periods. OMG I have always had a really heavy flow so this is wonderful. What I don't love? Weight gain. Boobies are bigger but I'm fighting more poundage but I am taking vitamin B as I hear that helps. I'm 40 (41 this May) and will not be having kids. A GF then just said why don't you just get your tubes tied...it's not good to be on the Pill! Honestly I just don't see the reasoning there, unless getting tubes tied is not a big surgical ordeal? Guess I need to talk to my doctor. And ummmm, most of you probably don't know this but I had an unplanned pregnancy in college and had it terminated about 6 weeks later. I don't regret my decision, but I guess I just resist the thought of getting anything else "done" down there, KWIM? . Again, more to discuss with my doctor (she knows all of this). If anyone has any input on getting tubes tied and what's involved please let me know (or PM me). TIA!
