  • Depends on your doc, some are not discriminatory, others are. You just have to ask.

  • Mine wouldnt let me at that age, just have to see how your Dr. feels about it or find a Dr. that will

  • Depends on state laws, doctor's preferences, and your insurance.

  • I work in surgery and usually the general rule is...if you are that young they want you to have 2 kids or more...if your doc wont do sure you can find one that will. I have tied tubes on much younger women.
