On the 18th of this month I had tubal ligation. Everything went great except I got a small infection from one of the outer incisions. No worries.
However I just started getting spotting about 2 days ago and today full on got my period. The cramps have been way more light and easy then they normall are which is a plus. But my actual period has been twice as heavy and... 'chunky' then it normally is.
I asked a friend who has had this done as well and she said she had fibroids but doesn't know if it's from the tubal. Before my tubal I had a vaginal exam and they did an vaginal ultra sound and pelvic ultra sound. I was never told about fibroids.
I haven't had any real change in anything else since, except my period being a little heavier than usual.
Do I have anything to worry about or is this normal?
That can be normal. If your concerned you may want to speak with the doc that did the surgery or your family doc. Just an FYI, you don't get fibroids from surgery, sometimes you have to get surgery because of of them but the surgery doesn't cause them. You would know if you had fibroids, they are very painful and the soc would have told you about them after looking at the ultra sound cause they should have shown up there, or at least the doc would have seen them when he performed the surgery, in which case he/she should have informed you about it after the surgery was done
