I want to stop from having more kids because my body couldn't survive another pregnancy but I have heard horror stories about both the hysterectomy and getting your tubes tied.

Well, I guess it depends why you want to. If you are literally going to die if you have another baby do a hysterectomy. Are they suggesting removing the uterus but leaving the ovaries?

A tubal ligation has a one in 300 failure rate, so there is still a risk.
