keightlynn (1522 days ago) I will never have mine done just because both my mom and my aunt had their done, and they went into pre menopause in their late twenties from it. They have both been on natural hormone replacement ever since. But my mom had REALLY bad depression after she had hers tied, and she has also suffered massive migraines ever since. Me, I`m going to go the IUD route.
sleepymomma (1523.5 days ago) I will probably just keep using the IUD until I go through menopause. I am a diabetic, and diabetics tend to die quite a bit sooner then non diabetics. I could never force my husband to get a vasectomy, what if I die in twenty years and he meets some wonderful woman and they want children together?
Also, I think the thought that I could NEVER have more chiildren would bum me out.It is just too final.
MoodyMama (1523.8 days ago) Just be VERY sure about it. I almost had my tubes tied after my 2nd child. I was 30 yrs old, married and had a boy and a girl. Then I got divorced, 5 yrs later met my current husband and he wanted a child of his own. I did get them tied this time after my 3rd c section, but I was very positive that I wouldn`t change my mind! (The fact that I had to have c sections sealed the deal. It`s not recommended to have more than 3.)
RobinG (1523.8 days ago) Depends ~ I was 40 when I had my 3rd so I`m done 100% so got mine done but if I was 35 and thought I was done I`d of waited til I was 40 to revisit the idea.
kylaleigh (1523.9 days ago) I`m on my 3rd boy and I`m DONE.. I`m 27, 3 kids is more then I ever expected and very expensive. I`m having a my 3rd c-section and I will me getting my tubes tied. I want to be able to enjoy sex without the worry and since they`re already going to be in there.. it`s going to be done. I think its the right choice for my family.
lisamarie8503 *PINK* (1523.9 days ago) Yeah but if you get it reversed it isnt 100% that it will work. God that would suck if you got them tied, 5 years later decided to have more, got them `untied` and it didnt work. How devistating!
kaylamama (1523.9 days ago) I would get it done if I knew I was done having kids. If I get to 4 or 5 kids and am in my 30`s, I`ll probably get it done. I knew a woman who got her tubes tied after 4 kids, then 7 years down the line wanted more... so she got them reversed and ended up with 2 more kids.. You can get them reversed, it`s just expensive..
lisamarie8503 *PINK* (1523.9 days ago) I dont know how someone can make a decision so big in a day. Its irreversable, so I would NEVER get it done. You never know...one day down the line you might want more!
Mandy-n-Eoins-Peanut (1523.9 days ago) I wouldn`t get it done. After all, I was finished having babies after my second for a number of reasons. #1 I was in an abusive relationship with their dad. #2 I didn`t feel I`d ever meet anyone I wanted to offer such a commitment to. #3 I didn`t want to have children for different men. #4 I had a hard time with both labours and my son (youngest) was a demon baby. He didn`t even sleep through the night until he was 2 and a half. And while he was up all night...he was crying...for no reason. But time moved on, my son is now 6 and I`ve met a wonderful man who I want to spend the rest of my life with. He accepted both my children like they were his, and wanted one of our own...so I went back on my decision to never have another one...
arkansastechmommy (1524 days ago) I think I`m just going to continue with an IUD until I am no longer able to have children!! If I ever decide I want another one, I can always have them removed :) And, they are AS effective of tieing the tubes and a vacectomy (sp?)!
dollhouse (1524 days ago) I think that some people should be required! I work with kids and sometimes you just wonder why certain people are allowed to keep having babies!
missyv28 (pink) (1524 days ago) I don`t think I could do it. I cry when I have to take birth control haha. Some ladies can do it and to each your own on this one. My mom had it done after 5 kids...she was done and she didn`t trust herself to not have another baby lol...
MelissaJoanne (1524 days ago) Agree with monkeymamma, with the same reasoning. When we`re done, I wouldn`t have my tubes tied, but we`d consider husband having a vasectomy.
monkeymamma (1524 days ago) I`d rather hubby be the one to get a vacestomy because it`s less involved, outpatient, and can go home that day.
