You would need to ask your ob. I think its like 25 unless you meet other requirements like already have a certain number of kids or something.

You'll probably have to google it. Some states have no restriction and others have strict ones. I know of a few where if you're married both husband and wife have to sign consent forms and if the husband doesn't you don't get to have it.
I think most the requirement is like "you have to have at least one child and be like 24?" But I'm not 100%

I do not know about GA I know I live in VA I asked about getting my tubes tied after 2 life threatening pregnancies which reasulted in the semi early birth of my son and daughter ( 36 weeks/34 weeks) and I was 25 years old at the birth of my second child. I was told I did not qualify.

I don't think there are technically laws on it but I know a lot of doctors refuse to do it before a woman is 25 AND has at least one kid of each gender. At least that's what I have been told here and in OH.

Idk. That's just what I was told. You have to have at least two kids, one of each gender. I'm annoyed that they won't give me one anyway since it's my body and I want one.

Yeah it's really something someone should change. Guys don't have to have kids to get snipped! Birth control isn't 100%. What if someone hated kids and never wanted any? Their only option would be abortion and I think that's crappy to force on someone. It's out bodies, we should have that choice.

Then they need waivers for that. It's stupid. If i got a tubal and regretted it, that sounds like my own problem. DH is getting a vasectomy soon and I'm getting a tubal for my 25th birthday. Lmao.
