i had them tied at 21 and untied at 33.   I thought I was done at 21 as well, but then again at 21, I thought I had the world figured out. lol

I won't be having mine tied (my hubs will be having his done, though)... but if I were going to, I'd do it after this baby, and I'll be almost 21. After a miscarriage, and a complicated pregnancy, I can't handle being pregnant again (emotionally). I DO think I'd regret it, to some degree, but I also KNOW that if I ever want more children I will go about it another way whether or not I can have my own.

I'm 36 have 3 children and don't have my tubes tied.  My hubby and I are done with having babies, lol but I opted for the 10 year IUD instead of having my tubes tied.  I'm content with my decision.  My 23 yearl old niece just had her 2nd child and chose a new procedure clled Esure.  It's less invasive than having your tubes tube, done in the doctors office, takes a couple of minutes and is 100% permanent.  It can never be undone.  I thought she was too young to make such a permanent decision now but it was her decision to make.

I was 21 too. I did it for health reasons though.
