The procedure you had done is a bilateral salpingectomy. Tubal ligation is simply cutting a small section out of the tubes and clamping the open ends, or plugging the tubes in some supposedly permanent fashion. Tubal ligation has been known to spontaneously reverse, resulting in an unplanned pregnancy. Salpingectomy completely removed the tubes, therefore, removing ALL chance that an egg might somehow find its way to the uterus. I had the exact same procedure as you did around 25. Luckily for me when I finally had the mental energy to deal with the process of finding a doctor I got the right one on my first try!
I hate it. I hate that you’re never too young to be a mother but always too young to know you don’t want to be. It’s insane. The fact that many women who have medical conditions that a hysterectomy would cure yet are still refused till they’re 35 is vile and should be considered malpractice. As if it is t possible for an infertile person to adopt or foster a child if change their mind too! The first is legally blind the second spent weeks in intensive care and somehow, they overlooked what happened with her first.
