I had the same thing happen to me.
I first went back to my obgyn because of all of the weird symptoms I was having. Excessive gas, bloating, complete loss of sex drive, hair falling out, inability to lose the weight after my baby was born, waking up several times in the night for no reason and crushing fatigue were ruining my life. I was told the TL had nothing to do with these problems and it was probably just stress. I did numerous searches on the internet of my symptoms and celiac disease kept coming up. I went to a gastroenterologist and was finally taken seriously. The blood test and the scope test revealed that I did have celiac disease. I have been gluten free for 9 months, but I am still having all of my symptoms. I read a book call "It's my Ovaries, Stupid!" by Elizabeth Lee Vliet,M.D. The book seems to say that having a tubal ligation can increase allergies like gluten intolerance. I know that we are genetically wired for certain things to happen, but if a procedure makes things worse, women need to be informed.
