Tubal Ligation and RA

Question

I am pregnant with my second child and am considering a tubal ligation after delivery. Will getting a tubal ligation affect my hormones and therefore cause me problems with my RA? Should I just go back to the Birth control pill?

Answer

There is no absolute contraindication to a tubal ligation with rheumatoid arthritis.
