Quoting Robert Downey Jr.:" 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."

I was 21 and having my second when I asked for one. I was told no, of course



But, now, being 27 with 4...if they denied me because I don't have both sexes, there would be some drama

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.

I know a woman who has never wanted children and her husband feels the same way but her doctor won't give her a tubal until she's 30, it's ridiculous.

I didn't argue much because I was 20 when I asked but my thing is, I have 2 kids. Of each sex. I'm almost 22. I know I don't want anymore. I have been saying that since I had DD. They are too expensive. I just want these two and I want to be able to give them everything. If I have another kid, we don't make enough to keep that up. And I don't feel that they should go without because I popped another kid out.



Plus I feel like our family is complete. I can't even picture another child.

I have a friend who never wanted kids, she got pregnant on the pill and using condoms and have her daughter up for adoption cause she didn't believe in abortion past 12 weeks and she found out at 14 wks.
She is pregnant now again (also a BC baby) and keeping it, not because she's changed her mind about not wanting kids but she said it hurt placing her daughter and she can't go through that again so she has no other choice.
I feel so bad for her because she would have had her tubes tied ASAP if there were restrictions. Then she wouldn't have to deal with any of this.

I know in SC the age is 21 so ask your OB. When I went in for my very first appointment they asked me if I wanted my tubes tied and before they could write it down in my chart they had to make sure I would be 21 after I had the baby.
