  • I'm not sure, I know they won't let a man get a vasectomy until a certain age though. Just call your doctor and ask, that would be the easiest way to get an answer.

  • Well I asked the same question but I am 24 and one mom told me most likely not. They believe unless its a medical reason that you shouldnt until your older. I wanted to do it now I am married and ready for no more kids. But most doc believes you may divorce or want more once you're older and more mature to decide what you want out of life like more kids...but I would check with ya docs.
