and if the Dr tells don't have anymore kids ...that is still not a reason to tie them!!!

Please go back and read them all again and be 100% sure you can deal with ALL these reasons (consequences) in the future.
Thank you for taking the time to read!!!
These reasons are all ones that have been told to me by woman that have had their tubes ligated.

  1. I can definitely understand many women not wanting to make such a permanent decision. However, I did have mine done, after the c-section birth of my 4th child. I was 36 1/2 at the time. I knew I was done having children, have not regretted my decision, had no problems at all afterward, nursed that baby for almost 2 full years, and am still satisfied with my decision 5 years later. I would not tell any woman what to do with her body, nor would I criticize her for making that decision, whatever it may be.

    I do commend you for publicly listing the responses you have encountered from mothers who have regretted their decision though. So other women can make an informed choice as well.
