Getting tubes tied... maybe. Mamas3(B's) Due April 19; 3 kids; 2 angel babies; Indiana 1972 posts

This is my fourth pregnancy, I have two children and have had one miscarriage..
My doctor called me today after my ultrasound and recommended that I get my tubes tied.. Im only 19, but this will be my third c section and he seems like that's the big issue, but I also have a lot of health issues, and had some issues this pregnancy, I want more children, my husband does not, but ive went back and fourth with getting this done, I don't think my body could handle another pregnancy, but Ive always wanted a big family, but I know its probably best for me to get my tubes tied... Anyone else in this situation? Im just awfully confused and don't want to have such a permanent thing holding over my head I guess.. Im not sure what to think. :(

You could get then clipped instead. But, there's a much higher chance of getting pregnant with just the clips.

Your still really young to do something so permanent. I would suggest getting a long term birth control and using condoms. Then make the decision in a few years.

I am 22 and I am FOR SURE 100% done after Jay is born.



If you are unsure i wouldn't do it, or even get a couple other opinions.

19 is pretty young to get your tubes tied. My high risk dr wouldn't even have that conversation with me until I was 35 which isn't until a few more years. I've had 2 previous c-sections. My latest c-section was a L shaped incision which makes my uterus have a weak spot. It's a big issue because I have a long history of PTL and early dilation which i need a cerclage placed during pregnancy, a few previous miscarriages, and a stillbirth. With all of that, she's still ok with me having one more baby if i want to. Your history doesn't sound all that complicated to me, but obviously i'm not your dr.
