  • Find a different Doctor. It is YOUR decision. How old are you and how many kids do you have?

  • Try getting an IUD until you turn 25. It's actually more effective than a tubal ligation. Most doctors won't do a tubal ligation until you're either 25 or you have 3 kids.

  • Keep trying different doctors. It took me going to three doctors before I found one willing to do Essure on me. Essure is like a tubal ligation but it is more effective and cannot self reverse without your knowledge. I was 21 with 2 kids when I had it done.
