for a woman to get her tubes tied when she is the one who gave birth? It would be fair for the man to get fixed sense the woman is the one who gives birth. Unless she wants to get them tied.  what are your thoughts on this? Of course to each their own, im just saying

Depends on the couple. Neither one of us did either.

It's a personal decision for a couple.  Your logic makes sense, but each couple must make their own decision.

Whatever works for them. I wanted to do it because it was made more sense financially, and I didn't have to miss any work for it because I'm a sahm. My dh works out of town so having him do it would have been less convenient.

My husband and I have both decided against either of those.  I don't want to get my tubes tied, and he doesn't want to get snipped, so I'll just stay on birth control.

Sorry my phone cut me off lol. My hubby wanted to get snipped so I wouldn't have to go through anything else (tough birth and pregnancy) but it just made more financial sense for me to have mine tied. I think either way depends on the couple, but if you are monogomous it doesn't matter who does it.

 DH and I decided together for him to have a vasectomy. It was easier, less invasive, less side effects and complications for him to have the procedure than for me to have my tubes tied. I had also been taking BC for way too many years and needed to get off them.

I had mines tied for medical reason after the c-section of my third son.

If I had to have a c-section with my son, I was going to get my tubes tied while I was open, if not it was on him. 

He felt fine after a bit with an ice pack.
