I am currently pregnant with my fourth child and am 27 years old. All my children were planned but I think I am done now. I am really worried to have a fifth and am considering having my tubes tied. (After baby is born of course). But I have heard good and bad stories about it and am terrified to have surgery. My husband is going to have a vasectomy before the baby is born (due in 7 weeks) but I've heard about some couples still getting pregnant years after getting snipped. I've already tried numerous birth controls over the years but have such terrible side effects that I just can't handle the pill. I am considering an IUD but am thinking maybe something more permanent should be done. Has anyone else had their tubes tied and would you recommend it?
