Not at all. I knew 100% that I was/am done.
The pro no more babies (YAY!). The con, depending on if you regret the decision, is no more babies.

I had Essure done instead. I love it. I was out that day and on pain meds for like 2 days and then back to normal.
No I don't regret it at all! Had mine done 12 years ago. I have noticed heavier periods and more PMS, but I think that is due to my aging, not the tubal.
I kinda wish I had the option when I had mine... I dont know that I would have done it.. Im 27 and only have one... but I think Im good with just one!!
I had mine done 4 months ago when I had my son and was happy to have it done. But I did feel a little regret for a few weeks after but I am fine now. No cons in my case other than that brief regret moment.
I don't regret it at all. But I was 100% sure we were done. I considered it after baby number 3, but we both couldn't say with 100% certainty that we were ready to do something so final. After baby #4 we were.
Pros: No worrying about birth control.
Cons: None in my case.
I regret it 100%. I knew I didn't want any more kids, but my doctor never informed me of the risks and side effects of a tubal. I'm still happy with the fact that I will not have anymore kids, but I've had to go back on hormonal bc because I've had such horrible pms, heavy periods, and a lot of mood problems. Pretty much, I turned into a crazy person, and it's all because of the tubal.
I don't regret it at all. I am 100% sure I NEVER want to be pregnant again, so I love never having to think about birth control again.
However, the reversal is invasive, expensive, and only 40-50% successful, so don't do it unless you are absolutely sure that future pregnancies are out of the question.
