Yes! I had mine tied after my second child was born. My Dr. advised against it but I was hard headed and did it anyway. I do regret it now

well im 29 yrs old and just had a hysterectomy...they removed everything but the ovaries...do I regret it?? on some levels yes, it was the hardest decision to make but I made it responsibly...I have alot of med issues and wouldn't even attempt to carry another child...although I love children and did want a lil girl =( I have an 8yr old boy whom I have raised myself and it's been real rough so I don't really want to go through it again even though the thought of not having the option ever again hurts very badly...I didn't have any med issues until I carried my son then it was diabetes, stroke and u name it....so it depends what the circumstances were that prompted you to make the choice you did, but I have heard that tubal ligation's can be reversed so I dk...if not there is always adoption, but it's never the same as carrying them yourself. good luck to you!=)

no, i am very happy with my two with my husband! sometimes i look at babies and think about wanting another but then that passes when i realize that we have two precious girls that we can give the world to and i really don't want to go back to baby times with changing diapers and nursing and things like that.

Oh sweetie ♥ I can totally agree with you! I have 10, 8, 2 yr old girls and my 2nd husband has 2 previous boys from his first marriage as well, and well... When you are pregnant and have 5 kids to support, you think no more!!! But I had to have one with my new husband then got fixed and its been 2 yrs and I see babies and my heart sinks just knowing I can not have any more :( People tell me just wait till Isabel (my youngest) is older! Then you will be glad. I am not glad I did it, it was the responsiable thing to do! But I really do wish I could have just one more.. Totally feel ya, and know what you are going thru! Message me if you ever need to talk.

I have not got my tubes tied but my husband and I have been considering after our third is born because he no longer wants any more... I would love a fourth but I don't think I will be changing his mind. After reading your thoughts you are making me reconsider!

i got my tubes tied 3 months after my youngest child was born ( i have a 14 yr old & a 6 1/2 yr old ) , i felt at the time that i didnt want more kids due to relationship troubles with my now ex bf , but now that i have met a wonderful man and he has regretted never having children and wishes 1 day to have his own which i wish i could give him since i love him and would love to have a child with him as i think he would make an excellent father ( he is great with my 2 kids) .
