tubes tied?

How old, or how many kids do you need to have before you can get your tubes tied? I'm 22 and on my second pregnancy, I want my tubes tied, can I get it this young? [Oh yeah, in New York State. Thanks]

  • In my state its 21 with 2 kids.
    Ask your doctor at your next appt. If you're having a c-section they can do it all at one time.

  • I think it may also depend on the doctor. Mine wouldn't do mine until I was 25 or had two kids. Not sure though, perhaps you could call somewhere like Planned Parenthood and ask them?
