Attention: Post Tubal Women
The Good News...
You're Not Crazy!
The Bad News:
Information was withheld from you by the ACOG
FACT: All forms of birth control list and disclose both risks and benefits of each except for tubal ligation. Information that is withheld from women regarding the side effects of tubal ligation include information about long term physical and hormonal side effects known as Post Tubal Syndrome (PTS).
FACT: PTS is known and understood by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and their 40,000+ obgyn members, but as a policy of ACOG standards, this information is withheld from women.
FACT: Withholding information constitutes forced or fraudulent consent.

Are you in peri-menopause? Take this Quiz
Question: Have Postpartum
How long has it lasted? How severe is it?
Is it Postpartum Blues, or could it be Post Tubal Syndrome (PTS)?
It was your human, civil, legal and medical RIGHT(s) to have been
Post tubal syndrome (PTS) has been known and understood by the medical community since W.W.II, and even more so since the 70's.
Women and the public in whole are told with malicious intent and with no regard for women's health individually or as a whole that there are no known risks or negative side effects to tubal ligation (TL). This fraud is supported by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and their members who profit, and by organizations who promote birth control for reasons of population control.
Do not confuse "birth control" with "population control". Birth control is what we as women (and men) practice. Population control is what governments practice. We as a public and women in private are told by their trusted care givers that there are no long term risks or effects associated with the procedure of tubal ligation (affecting the fallopian tubes). We are told and it's been promoted that tubal ligation has no negative effects on women's hormonal health. Information is withheld in order to force consent and to persuade women to be sterilized.
With any type of tubal ligation there is a risk that the TL will affect that woman's hormonal health. A severe change in a woman's hormone health, or the castrated state of sudden depleted hormones/menopause in a young woman can greatly impact in a negative way that woman's physical and mental health. This type of health change is very perilous and can affect in all aspects her health, family relationships, work , and social life. Long term the effects of a depleted hormonal state can cause aggressive bone loss, and can impair rational thinking. Immediate affects of TL at the time of a birth can affect the mothers ability to fully lactate.
We believe that tubal ligations should be made a choice to women as a form of birth control but with FULL informed consent.
Our mission is to:
l Educate, inform and provide accurate information to women considering tubal ligation.
l Educate, inform, assist, and create a support network for post tubal women in their quest for answers and proper follow-up care.
l Bring forth the needed change which would require doctors to properly and fully inform women prior to sterilization/tubal ligation surgery.
The Coalition for Post Tubal Women is a grassroots organization.

Not sure what to do or where to wage your complaint?
Each state has a governmental
regulatory medical board which serves to protect the citizens of each state from unethical
doctors or medical practices. Their duties include licensing doctors, overseeing the
activities of the physicians who offer services in their state, investigating when a
complaint is made, and disciplining doctors when their actions merit so. Disciplinary
actions can range from ordering further education and training to revoking the physicians
medical license. Filing a complaint with your state medical board is not a lawsuit.
The CPTwomen can help assist you in filing a formal complaint to your state medical board.
