Have you had your tubes tied? Rss

Hi.
I'm 24 years old and I have two kids. I'm just wondering what my chances are of getting a doctor to tie my tubes? I know I'm still quite young, but really 2 kids is enough for me! I really really really don't want anymore! I'm still breastfeeding DS2 so I can't go back on the pill and won't go on the mini pill. I don't have a good run with any contraception really, they either make me sick or make me spot constantly.
DH has said he'll probably get the 'snip' but I sense he's not completely comfortable with the idea and I don't want him to do it if he's not.
I am terrified of getting pregnant again. So much so that when I get my period every month I'm actually excited, because it means we haven't slipped up! LOL. I feel like if I got pregnant again I would have some kind of nervous breakdown! I love my two boys soooo much and feel so lucky to have them, but I just don't want anymore.
So yeah, I was just wondering if anyone my age or with my amount of children has had it done. And how do I go about it? Do I just talk to my GP?
Thanks smile

I too am terrified of getting preg and I guess/know that dh is sooooo waning more kids.

I had a beautiful stress free preg. yay and all, I just know my body WILL NOT survive another.

Now to convince DH laugh roll eyes laugh
I think your chances are very very slim. Unless you have had problems during pregnancy.
I seem to recall a few months back someone posted something about wanting their tubes tied - they were 30ish (from memory) with 4 kids and the doc had told her she was "too young" to be considered for the procedure, even though she didn't want any more kids.

I don't have any personal experience with it, but do know there was a thread a little while back......
My sister-in-law age 24 with 4 kids had her tubes tied during last c-section. She spoke with her GP before the surgery, he sent her to some counsilling sessions to talk about her reasons for not wanting more children. So just have a talk to your GP see what they say. Good luck
much older then you and many more kids lol and could not convince them to do it, I won in the end lol as I had the trump card of this pregnancy NOT being great and with many problems and I was a high risk so got done.

I think you would be pushing your luck to find a doctor to do it :s
you will probably find that they will want you to use the Mirena or similar

I am 28 and will be getting mine tied at the end of this pregnancy. The only reason they will do it for me is because it will be my third CS and my OB doesn't like anyone to have more then 3 CS. Honestly, I think your chances are pretty slim, but of course it is worth asking. You can always get an IUD put in or the Implanon. Good luck. smile
hi, i was 32 when had my tubes done
than last year at 38 got a tubal reversal to have another baby
cause i thought 2 kids was enough but after a few years wanted another&having my little girl in june so make sure its really want you want your only young

I haven't but a friend did during a c section with her last child ( 3rd) she was in her mid 30's and also had a still birth ( first baby).so she has 3 kids + angel.Not sure if she had to push the issue

mum of 3 boys aged 11, 13 and 14

I had my 36 week check up last friday and the OB asked if I wanted my tubes tied after bub (3rd c section). To be honest I/we hadn't thought of it. But I said no. They generally only do it after 3 c sections or over 30. I am 33 and we are planning another one for 2 years time. Yes, I will get it done after that one - baby #4.

I am nearly 29 yrs old and have had 4 pregnancies in 4 yrs with 1 of those being an etopic that nearly killed me. I have been informed that due to my age they will not even look at the idea of tying my tubes, apparently if you are determined you can go through a whole thing of physocology appointments to make sure that this is what you want.

i have been informed by a specialist that it is more efficient for a man to get tied then a woman, a woman has 1 in 100 chance after having tubes tied to full pregnant again where a man is 1 in 1000.

The doctor told me to try the mirena coil that last 5 yrs and very effiecient as I am unable to take many of the other contraceptions so I am now going to try this option and cross fingers that it works as I don't think i could handle a fourth child.
I'm 26 and want my tubes done.
I have 2 kids and no intention of more.
DH is 32 and not keen on getting the snip, and I have reasons for not pressuring him to do it.
Every Dr I've seen has said they will not do it, however are more than happy to do DH.
I have spoken to one Dr and he said they would only consider it if I had 2 more kids or were well over the 30 mark. WTF what diffence does age make!
Currently the only BC we use is condoms but they are annoying as hell. I have weight issues and do not want to go on any chemical/hormone form of BC.
Grrrr it's not like I haven't considered it completely, I've actually thought about it for OVER 2 years!
