    I had my tubes tied after my last child...at 26. Knowing that I can not get pregnant is great

    Mine was not keyhole...I was cut just above my CS scar. Like any other abdominal surgery...it took about 7 days or so before I felt alright.

    I was given a hysterectomy at 24 due to severe endometriosis. I am happy about it although there are days where I'm looking after my god-daughter when I do get sad about not being able to have them, in saying that I usually feel relieved about being able to give miss ella back too.

    Besides, I wouldn't be a good mother.... I'd be too tempted to crate the kid/s when they were being too annoying or when I have to go out.... Somehow I doubt that's legal....

    I have that stupid illness and even after tumours and multiple surgeries they won't give me a hysterectomy. I want children but doesn't my quality of life mean anything??

    They refused to do it for me from when I was 18 until I was 24. They don't like doing it before 25 either, but I'd spent around 4 months in hospital in one hit and they figured at least that way it would be fixed.

    Hubby's Aunt still suffers from it (she's into her 50's now) but has been on meds for it for around 30 years. She copes well on the meds and has minimal problems (although there are some)

    I think the number of dogs that end up in rescue - especially after Christmas - shows the number of people who change their minds about life and death things.

    I suspect just as many teenage girls would change their minds about whether or not they want to have children in the future and tubal ligation can be permanent. There are much better long term ways to prevent pregnancy or sort out hormonal imbalances. There's an implant that lasts 6 months for girls/women who don't want to think about it - provided they don't have any intolerable side effects - that's an option. Tubal ligation is only supposed to stop pregnancy - it won't stop all the things caused by hormonal imbalances.

    The pill isn't all that dangerous for most women - in fact it can reduce the chance of having some cancers (ovarian is one). There is a tiny chance it could increase the chance of having breast cancer, but for me - having control and much less pain made that risk well worth it. If I had a family history of breast cancer or I was a heavy smoker, I'd probably want to look at some other method. The side effects and types of women who shouldn't go on the pill are well known.

    Doctors refuse to do some procedures on patients they deem unsuitable eg permanent sterilization of 17 yo girls because they would have personal experience of patients changing their minds and sueing - because somehow the doctor should have been able to predict the child (under 18 yo) changing her mind.

    Just look at DGP change her mind about rescuing the Chi and her friend change her mind about getting rid of it. She is just as likely if not more, to change her mind about having children. And adoption is not an easy or reliable option either. The only way it's going to happen for DGP is if the doctors cannot find any other way of saving her life or she's had several children and is pushing thirty or older.

    Doctors have the right to refuse to operate on anyone they think it won't help. In fact they make an oath to "Do no harm" and taking away a woman's ability to have children, when she is of child bearing age, is generally thought of as doing harm unless it is the only way to save her life.

    I know, and I do want children (sometimes lol) It's more that when I'm in a lot of pain I scream to the Heavens that I hate God for not allowing a hysterectomy. It's just a hormonal in the heat of the moment desire. Not a long term one.
