This book explains what post tubal ligation syndrome (PTLS) is, and exposes that women have not been properly informed about the risks of tubal ligation. A must read for all women considering a tubal ligation, who had a tubal ligation, and their loved ones. All forms of birth control disclose the risks and benefits of each, expect for "sterilization". In the case of tubal ligation, negative information is withheld. These side effects of tubal ligation are known as "Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome". Susan Bucher , a victim herself of having information withheld from her, campaigns for informed consent. This text outlines the symptoms of PTLS, how women are diagnosed, hormone testing, "The Magic Cure to PTLS", and proposed actions that women can take to advocate for their health and rights. Includes information about who the Coalition for Post Tubal Ligation Women is, letters that the author and the Coalition have received, proposed informed consent law, and asks the question, "Do Doctors Steal Eggs?"
