  • I think it's normal to feel a bit of regret. I did after my third child, which was 9 years ago. I still "regret" it at times. I just knew deep in my heart we were not financially stable for a fourth child. Hang in there!!!

  • Had it done after my second child...NEVER regretted it. I'm sorry you are but there is a procedure that has proven to have great results in reversals. Good luck.

  • I thought about it after my second. It was all the rage, society telling me that I shouldn't have any more children and I never thought it through. The doctor told me to really think about it because I was young and might change my mind later on. The only time I listened to a doctor and never regretted it. I went on to having 2 more children, although it took 4 years with the next and 12 after that for the 4th. I now do not believe in "fixing" something that isn't broken. If God didn't want you to have any more children, then he would make you have fertility problems. I also don't believe that you should do something like that just so you can have sex and not worry about it. But that's my opinion. I know others feel differently.

  • If you really want another then go to a fertility clinic and see what they think, reverse or if IVF can be done.

  • I was just like you attap5 in my first marriage. I had 2 kids 1 of each and only 19 and ended up not getting them tied then. Well I ended up getting remarried and having 2 more DD with my DH now.
