Post Ligation Syndrome / Menstrual Disorders after Tubal Ligation
Objectives: The objective of the study was to compare the hormonal profile in women, who had undergone bilateral tubal ligation and those without tubal ligation.
Study Design and Setting: Cross- sectional Comparative Study carried out in the Gynecology department, Unit-I Jinnah Hospital, Lahore for a period of 6 months (July-Dec 2011)
Results: The mean age was recorded as 34.55+0.67 and 33.99+1.02 in group A (with BTL) & B (without BTL) respectively. Comparison of hormonal levels was analyzed in both groups, where the mean values of FSH, LH and Estradiol in Group-A were found as 8.1+0.27 IU/I, 6.9+0.24IU/I and 54.3+0.34 ng/ml while in Group-B it was found as 6.8+0.26IU/I, 6.1+0.28IU/I and 51.7+0.31ng/ml in Group-B respectively, which was statistically insignificant. P Value ≤0.05.
Conclusion: The rate of ovulation after bilateral tubal ligation is found slightly improved after the procedure but ovarian reserves are not negatively affected.
