About Emily

Myself and my youngest

I am a 24 year old mother living in Oregon with my husband of 7 years and 5 rambunctious children. I dabble in photography, writing, cake decorating, and am usually looking for new hobbies to try in my spare time.

I underwent tubal ligation in July of 2013, and began to connect the dots between new physical ailments and the procedure within a couple of months afterward. Slowly I have been forging connections with other women with similar experiences.

I began this blog to attempt to collect varied experiences to hopefully be found by women contemplating the procedure, as it is clear that most care providers will not shine any light on this side of things. My goal is to inform. Not to vilify our doctors, not to scare women. My goal is for truly informed consent.
