Background: In this study, we aimed to assess the effect of neural therapy in the prevention of post-tubal syndrome, which is the combination of dysmenorrhea, bloating, dyspareunia, heavy menstrual bleeding, chronic vaginitis, and cystitis, after elective bilateral tubal ligation with modified Pomeroy technique. Material and Methods: In total, 113 patients who have undergone bilateral tubal ligation with modified Pomeroy technique between January 2016 and December 2018 in our clinic have been included. Postoperatively, patients were divided into two groups. One group received neural therapy (n = 52), and the other group did not receive neural therapy (control group, n = 61). Both groups were evaluated in terms of preoperative and postoperative symptoms. One year after surgery, patients’ pain levels were evaluated using visual analog scale (VAS). Results: When both groups were compared in terms of symptoms, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, bloating, frequency of vaginitis, and cystitis per year and pain perception using VAS, the symptoms were significantly less in the neural therapy group. However, there was no difference between the groups in terms of the amount of menstrual bleeding. Conclusions: Patients who received neural therapy showed less pain symptoms (dysmenorrhea and dyspareunia), and their VAS scores were lower when compared to the control group. Thus, we concluded that neural therapy is effective in the treatment of post-tubal syndrome.
