  • I had a tubal ligation at age 21 and I only have 2 kids. You shouldn't have a problem getting it done.

  • If he doesn't get one, then ask your dr. about you getting a tubal ligation....that she be NO PROBLEM, being that you will have 4 kids under the age of 25!

  • no after you have two kids most docs. say you are good to go... but you might hae to get a different doc. some feel uncomfrontable doing it on ppl so young! i would keep on pushing the issue they have to know this is 100 % what you want and dont drop it keep pushing

  • well some states go off of how many kids you have or how old you are depending on how many children you have they could do it earlier

  • Funny thing I'm afraid to get a tubal because I don't want to get cut open! The most hospital experience I've had is giving birth and I've always had vaginal deliveries that's why hubby volunteered! (yay me!)

  • I would never put a man through this :( I've met some that have and they're never the same since the procedure they are changed nonsexual sad lifeless people. I plan on getting an IUD soon because i have had such difficulties I think I may just stick to having one kid and am waiting at least 5 years before considering a decision IF I should have another ironically we both wanted a son and now we have one, there may not be any more but he won't be spoiled-just homeschooled by parents with considerable college level education between the two of us :)
