  • At 24 I would wait. I thought I was done after my 3rd when I was 27. I ended up having #4 and #5 at 35 and 36 - I am so glad I didn't have it done. I have heard of many people that regret having it done, never heard of anyone regretting NOT doing it. There's mirena now and other long term birth control options.

  • You are only 24, I would wait, especially since you don't sound like you know for sure that you are done.

  • I'm 27 and just had mine tied 6 months ago. I have 3 and thats all we wanted. Thats the first thing my doctor asked me when I went for my first checkup.

  • I was kinda in the same situation. I had 1 son and 1 on the way 3yrs ago and the doctor asked if I wanted to have my tubes tied. Since I am older back then I was 36 I decided 2 was enough and had my tubes tied. Since you are a lot younger I would say wait I did it mainly because of my age.

  • I had one of each and KNEW I was DONE. I had them done and have never thought twice about it

    If you have doubts or are not sure, then I would say wait
