I want my implant taken out at the end of year as me and my partner want to try for another baby. I had my first child 3 months before i turned 18 (our son is now 14 months) and my family are supportive of my decision in being ready for another baby but i cant help thinking that my DR/nurse will judge me as im still only 19. I need help and advise on what to say when i asked that i want my implant out. Im Quite a sensitive person and take what people say to heart, and even though the DR/nurse may not say anything i will still see it in their faces what they think of me so PLEaSE help xx

Its none of their business and if you want it ask. If they say no(by some odd chance, never heard one say no) Then I would find a new dr.

You tell the doctor, "I want my implant out." If there is any question, find a different doctor.
You are an adult and do not have to explain your decisions.

I'm not sure I understand? If you are nervous and scared at a nurse/DR's (who are generally professionals) facial expression giving away a sign of disaproval. So much so you are hesitant to ask for the procedure. How do you expect to cope with day to day life and people passing judgements on you for being a young mom of two?



You'll be going to prenatal checkups. There will be older moms there. Some passing judgement, or looking at you with disaproval.



You're going to have to toughen up and own your choice. Otherwise you're going to have a hard road ahead of you!

You know i dont let people that judge me get to me, i have had looks in the street. No one has ever said anything nasty they've always been nice, and im fine with that. Im just not good with one 2 one, when theres only you and someone in that room. I will just say what i want.. why i want it out.. and if theres any question about it im old enough to make the decision.. Thank you for your comments

It's so true what Sal says.... for some reason once you have kids, it doesn't matter who you are or how old you are, people start to judge. Parents are constantly under the microscope in society.



I'm 29 and I had 3 kids 3 and under until this year. My SD (4), my son (3) and my daughter (15 months). I had my first bio child at 26 but I still got weird looks and comments for having 3 children so close together. Comments ranging from the well meaning "Oh boy, you look like you have your hands FULL!" to telling me flat out that I must be "insane".



Meah, you don't let it bother you. I have no issues handling my three youngin's, we function well as a family, I don't find it all that hard because I adjusted. So, I let it slide.



What really matters is that you're confident in your decision and you are doing what works for you and your family.

does it matter what they think.....not really!
just state politly that you would like to try for another baby as you want a sibling for you son and want them close together and need it out, simple really....but like jennifer said if you are scared of the look on their face becasue you think you are being judged maybe you need to just have a really serious think about why you are doing it, and if you are ok with it to hell with everyone else, people will judege you no matter what you do, how old you are, howmany kids you have so it is going to be a hard road no matter what you choose, at least if you are happy no one else can change that on you,
