  • I am and was thrilled to have my tubes tied. I only have one child but it was a tough pregnancy and delivery. I almost died in delivery and my doc recommended me not try again. I am happy to have him. I am also thrilled that we do not have to use protection and we no longer have the worries or thoughts of being pregnant.

  • I had my tubes tied.. and I don't like that I can't have any more but I really don't need anymore for health and financial reasons. My little one just turned 4 so I'm getting sad knowing she's going to be be going to pre-k this August prolly.

  • Relief. No more miscarriages.

    And a deep sense of sorrow, grief, loss, pain, rage, omg what have I done?

    I got over it eventually because I waited a long time for them to pick up on what I already knew. No more kids for me, I was only meant to have one.

  • I had my tubes tied in 2001 and hated it. Had them untied in April 2006 and was blessed with a beautiful son exctly one year later. GOOGLE PTLS and read the side effects most doctors fail to mention.. Good luck.

  • I'm 37 and have a 7 & 21 month old and I regret making it permanent. I would love to have another now, but there were so many things that were going on and my last pregnancy was pretty rough and I let the hormones and fear decide for me. Not to mention all the other stuff that has happened since...
