I am a single mother of two kids with one on the way. I don't know what I'm having yet but I currently have 2 girls and BABY. I am 22, however when I was pregnant with my 2nd child my doctor had asked me if I wanted to get my tubes tied and I was only 20 at the time. And I said no considering I might get married and he would want to have atleast 1 child with me. However, I am pregant, I am 22 now and I have been seriously considering getting my tubes tied after I have this baby. It will be my 3rd child. I have had positive and negative thoughts and feedback from some family and friends but my girls are 2 and 5 and then this one. I think that 2 is already a handful cause my girls are ALWAYS active doing something. And having this baby I believe is going to be my limit. MY QUESTION IS: (which I highly doubt) What are your opinions on getting them TIED or NOT. BESIDES THE FACT I WOULD WANT ANOTHER ONE LATER. **Even my momm told me I should get them tied that way once they start going to school instead of me starting over cause I like my kids atleast 2 years apart that I coulod start living my life. Not in a bad way but like having alone time and quiet time for myself while they're gone to school.

 I have three, and my tubes are not tied.  I'm not going to tie them because I think I may want another one in the future.  I just use my bc faithfully so that I don't have another one.

Well, do you feel that you'll be done after baby comes or do you feel that there is a chance that you'll want another baby in the future? Let that guide your decision.

If u think u may want another dont do it. Tubal reversals are expensive and not covered by ins. They also don't always work since there can be permanent scar tissue

I am almost 30 and wouldn't even consider it at the moment. I would like the option for more kids. Everyone is different though. The decision is yours to make, albeit a tough one. Good luck.

Well I'm honestly too forget full with bc pills and I really think I will be done after this one. I had my children naturally. no meds period. At age 16, 20, and 22(praying nothing goes wrong dont want a csection) But I'm already looking at going through labor pain with this one and I think 3 is my limit. I would have stopped at 2 but i thought about having a boy and If it is a boy then I will definately be done. If it's a girl then I just see it as I'm not ment to have a boy and I dont want to try again thinking it might be another girl. I love all my children equally but just one boy would be good enough :) a nice balance than to have all these girls running around lol. But I strongly believe rather boy or girl I will be happy but I don't want to do this again and I would be content with 3 children.

I personally have known women who have had and are dealing with PTLS. I know women who have had to have a hysterectomy in their 30's because of it.

NO F'ING THANK YOU!

 Never thought about it.  Then again at the age of not even trying for more.
