Our expert says:
If you are on hormonal contraception (such as the Mirena), this tends to make periods lighter and less painful. If you had a sterilisation and stopped this, you would go back to the type of periods you had before you started contraception, which are usually heavier and more painful. It is not related to the sterilisation per se. The failure rate of sterilisation is 0.3%.
