i am 24 and have 3 children. i had mine done after my last pregnancy. it is really hard to deal with for me! you really need to think long and hard about it and dont go through with it unless you are 100% sur this it what oyu want! its just the fact of knowing that, god forbid, anything would ever happen to any of my children and not being able to have any more. i wish now that i wouldnt have had it done. it can alwayse be reversed but you are not guarentied to be able to get pregnant again.

I am having the same debate and I am 25, if I have a third then I think I will have my tubes tied b/c I will already be in the O.R. But if I stop with two, which is what I have now, my husband is getting a vascectomy. I worked for a doctor who did vascectomies, and they are no big deal, only 30 mintues, and they are in and out. I say if you know that is want you want, then go for it. But do it w/o even ONE reason of questioning yourself. I think if you are wondering wheather to do it right now, I would say no. That might be your gut just trying to tell you to hold off on that thought right now. Just my feeling about it, I am sure you'll make the right choice, good luck.

i would wait you can have an iud or something to prevent pregnancy and have it done later. its not cheap to have it reversed. i have a cousin who had hers done when she was around 23 or 24. now she is trying to save up to have it reversed. you may have 3 probably young kids but when they are older and you are older you may decide to have 1 more. really think it through . dont make a mistake

I say your hubby should get a vascectomy then. They are reversable. They don't like to do tubals at a young age because they say you may end up in a new relationship with someone who wants children/more with you in the future. I have 3 boys & they are amazing! I most likely won't have more, but that's due to divorce (I want more children & that is part of the reason for the divorce). We'd been together 10 years. You just never know.

I got mine done when i was almost 25. I had four children though. My OB said she would not do anyone's until they were 26 and or had at least three children. You need to really think about this, if you find a doctor who will. Chances of reversal are very slim. I would not have gotten mine done, except for that it wasn't safe for me to have any more babies. You never know where you will be 5 or 10 years down the road.

I will be getting my tubes tied after my baby is born...due this month. I am 26yrs old. My doctor said he doesnt like to do them on woman younger than 30. This is my second child and I know beyond a doubt that I am completely finished!!! I feel if you have completely thought it through with all the pros and cons then get it done. My husband and I talked about it through this entire pregnancy and just recently decided to have it done. It is ultimately your decision!!! Others would give their input and I would listen but not allow it to influence my feelings. Good luck!!

It depends. If its what you want, then go for it. You may have to search for a dr who will do it. I think most say they won't before you're 25.
