    I was wondering if any women here have had this done I will be geting it done myself soon. I have 2 kids and I am seperated from the kids dad by my choice. I am also finally going to school and the last thing I want is to get pregnant i have tried other forums of bc but they have not agreed with me nicely. My kids are a girl and boy so I figured I have what some people adopt to have in there life and I am very blessed but cant see myself having more from my body.

    My question is for the women or men who know of womens experinces with this how did it effect you and what was you experience like.

    I welcome open and polite critics nothing offenseive please.

    Well, all the women I've met that had it done have been happy with the results. If you're planning to have sex with people you don't know very well, you might still want to use condoms too, though.

    My wife had it done nine years ago after the birth of our son.Other than being a little sore for a few days there were no problems.I also have three sisters who've had it done.My wife and sisters didn't have much luck with birth control either.So they have all been more than happy to be free of that headache.It's been great not having to worry about condoms or remembering a pill every day.I'm also considering a vasectomy as backup,getting close to forty and don't want to start over!So I say go for it!

    Best move I have ever made...... had mine done back in the 60’s as a teenager do to medical reasons.

    The operation it’s self wasn’t to bad ( they did a bikini line cut can barely see the scar anymore) but I had cramps for a couple of days do to the air pumped into the abdomen. The procedure now is a thousand times better and safer. I understand they can do a tiny hole by the bellybutton or go in vaginally.

    The only difficult part was going before a Medical Review Board with my parents, Doctor and a Genetic Specialist. This was still the time period when women were considered not only stupid but second class citizens. :\

    One thing to remember with tubal ligation vice a hysterectomy is that is still possible and if it happens can be quite deadly to have a eptopic pregnancy. I have heard of it happening, how rare it is I do not now. Some say that it is somewhat more likely in TL'd women that non TL's but maybe that is because a lot of those "would just get pregnent" so it just seems that way.

    Etopic pregnancy is possible, but extremely rare. It's possible, but if it's your only consideration against it, then it's probably comparable to not taking birth control pills because you're worried about dying from a blood clot.

    I think i would be more worried to have more kids i had preeclapsia with both kids and was told with my daughter that i did nearly die so either way there is always something that can kill you no matter what i guess

    Thanks for you concern
