Just because you don't want kids now doesn't mean you don't ever want kids. Yes, it's reversible but that is very expensive and doesn't guarantee that you will be able to have more children. I had my tubes tied 11 yrs ago. Now I'm divorced and my new SO wants children that I can't give him.
I don't think the Merena is supposed to hurt. Maybe it's not in right? And there are so many different kinds of birth control now. I personally detest condoms, but I do every once in a while like the fire and ice. I do wish that I didn't have my tubes tied cuz then I could go on the pill and actually know when I'm going to get my period.
Before I had my tubes tied, I had a period that lasted 4 days and came every 28 days and the cramps weren't that bad. Now sometimes it lasts 7 days, the cramps are horrible, it never comes on schedule and mood swings are way worse.
Getting a tubal should be last resort.
