  • i would say that if u hv any doubt dont do it. its the most permanent type of birth control. there r many other types that can allow u not to concieve for a period of time, say several years but they can b easily reversed so until u r sure dont go with the most permanent type. there is always the possibility that u can regret it and its not necessary since u have other choices that r almost as good for as period of time. that is what i would do.

  • Nope. I had mine done 4yr ago when I had my last child. I was informed of the procedure, I thought about it and then decided that would be the best option for me. I do not regret it at all.

  • Mine are tied and I don't regret it at all. I had it done the same day I had my youngest son. I really thought hard about it before I decided it was the right thing for me.

  • I agree with a previous poster, if you have any doubts at all about it, don't do it. There are other forms of birth control. I had my 4th baby in November and knew I was done. I got them done a couple weeks ago. I am enjoying sex so much more now that I don't have to worry about getting pregnant.

    I am sure that sometimes when my baby is older and I am around little babies I will get baby fever and momentarily wish that I could have another one. But I think even if I had a dozen kids, I would still feel like that around little babies, and 4 is enough.

  • I got my tubes tied 20 years ago, after the birth of my FOURTH child and I was only 28. I knew I was done! The doctor tried to talk me out of it because I was only 28 and I started yelling at him that I had four kids and I really didn't want or need any more! I have not regretted it for one moment and for the last 20 years I have been having sex for fun only, no more worries about getting pregnant!!!!
