In this podcast video and transcription, Dr. Hotze discusses the tubal ligation procedure (commonly referred to as having your tubes tied), how it affects a woman’s body, and natural treatment options with bioidentical hormones.

Podcast Highlights:

1:00: It’s a very common surgical procedure. Well over 700,000 women every year have tubal ligations performed.

1:20: Have you had problems with increased premenstrual symptoms?

1:31: Have you had hot flashes? Have you felt depressed?

3:01: We’ve treated thousands of women post tubal ligation who have developed problems,

3:29: Normally within two or three years, women are going to begin, after a tubal ligation, to experience symptoms of hormonal decline and imbalance. That’s very common. And their periods will end earlier and they’ll go into early menopause.

3:44: So it’s after a tubal ligation that we see hormonal imbalances due to poor blood supply to the ovaries.

4:26: And, so at the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, what we do is we treat women with natural bioidentical hormones.

Podcast Transcription:

Dr. Steven Hotze: Hello, I’m Dr. Steve Hotze. Welcome to the program. Today we’re going to discuss a very commonly requested online subject, and that’s the question about tubal ligations.

Now tubal ligation is where a woman’s fallopian tubes, which carry the egg from the ovaries to the uterus, that’s those fallopian tubes, are tied off. That’s a tubal ligation. They’re ligated. They’re done with either clamps or they’re cauterized. And that prevents the egg from being able to be transported through the fallopian tubes into the uterus. And of course women do that to prevent pregnancy. It’s a very common surgical procedure. Well over 700,000 women every year have tubal ligations performed.

So a question to you is, if you’ve had a tubal ligation, have you had any change in the way you feel?

  • Have you had problems with mood swings, fluid retention?
  • Have you had problems with increased premenstrual symptoms?
  • Have you had problems with irregular periods or heavier periods?
  • Have you had headaches, breast tenderness, mood swings?
  • Have you had hot flashes? Have you felt depressed?
  • Have you had panic attacks, anxiety attacks?
  • Have you had difficulty with weight?

All these can be a result of a tubal ligation.

Now, you may go to your physician and say, “Doc, I had this tubal ligation but I’ve got all these symptoms. Now could it be caused by that?” And he’ll go, “No, it didn’t cause it. That one doesn’t have any effect on you at all.” Well, of course it has an effect.

What Happens to Your Ovaries

When your ovaries, which are on either side of the uterus, you have two ovaries, and the ovaries have blood supplies. There’s two arteries that go to the ovaries, one the ovarian artery and then a uterine artery. So the uterine artery runs along the fallopian tube. And when you tie that off or cauterize it or clamp, it shuts off the blood supply from the uterine artery to the ovaries. So it only has the ovarian artery, and that’s just not enough in many cases for women to have good function of their ovaries. They don’t function as well, so they don’t produce the hormones that they need. And all of a sudden, they begin to have problems associated with hormonal decline and imbalances.

And instead of treating you with antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication and sleep medication, what a doctor ought to do is replenish your hormones naturally using natural bioidentical hormones. And so this is what we recommend.

We’ve treated thousands of women post tubal ligation who have developed problems, who go to their doctors. They put them on all these different toxic pharmaceutical drugs which don’t resolve the underlying problem of hormonal imbalance.

Times of Hormonal Imbalance in Women

Now women can have hormonal imbalance many different times during their life. It can happen after a tubal ligation due to the decrease in blood supply of the ovaries when the ovaries don’t function well. Normally within two or three years, women are going to begin after a tubal ligation, to experience symptoms of hormonal declining imbalance. That’s very common. And their periods will end earlier and they’ll go into early menopause.

So it’s after a tubal ligation that we see hormonal imbalances due to poor blood supply to the ovaries. But we also see it in young girls going into puberty – have some hormonal imbalances. We see it when women are on birth control pills. That shuts off all the natural hormones and puts in counterfeit hormones into the body, which are the birth control pills, which can cause a host of health problems. And many women just feel terrible on the birth control pills. So we don’t recommend that. We also see it after childbirth, hormonal imbalance. We see it after a hysterectomy. And we also see it in menopause when the hormones decline and eventually get shut off in menopause.

The Solution: Bioidentical Hormones

And so at the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, what we do is we treat women with natural bioidentical hormones. What is a bioidentical hormone? A hormone that is biologically identical to the hormones your ovaries used to make in adequate amounts and balanced inadequate amounts, so you felt well. And that’s a bioidentical hormone. And so we use natural estrogen, estradiol or estriol, we call it Bi-Est, and we use natural progesterone. And we have to balance those out.

Women, as they march through their menstrual life, their hormones will become imbalanced. So it may be after a pregnancy, but happens by the time they get in their late thirties, early forties, you begin to have hormonal imbalances. And that’s because the ovaries every month don’t function as efficiently as they did when you were a young woman. You don’t always ovulate every month.

And when a woman ovulates in mid-cycle, there’s an area of her ovary called the corpus luteum that produces progesterone. That balances out the estrogen. If she doesn’t ovulate, then she’ll have estrogen dominance, and that’ll cause proliferation of tissue in the inner lining of the womb, and the periods will become heavier and they’ll have clotting and bleeding and those sort of things. So what you want to do is make sure that after a tubal ligation, if you’re having any symptoms, you want to get back on natural bioidentical hormones to treat your underlying hormonal imbalance, which is caused by the tubal ligation.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
