Can you get your tubes tied at 22?

Has any mom’s had their tubes tied at a young age, if so where? I’m 22 and my doctor tells me I have to be 27 before they even start considering this and I still may not be able to get it until 30. I know it is to be sure I won’t want anymore kids , I have 2 children now and one has deficiency issues with many delays mentally and physically so my children keep me pretty busy. I’m positive I don’t want anymore kids and I’m having bad side affects from birth control and need to get off of it , so just looking for second opinions from other moms.


I’m 22 today and I’m getting cut and burned soon

I was told by my doctor I have to be 22 with 2 kids for them to consider it, they then wouldn’t do it for me because I had 2 girls

I’m 24 and I’m getting mine tied after I give birth here in 4 weeks. But I also have three kids. My doctor has zero issues with it, just wanted to make sure I knew it was permanent, he asked twice and I said yes both times so we signed the papers right away to get it done

I honestly don’t know why doctors feel they have a right to tell you no to having your tubes tied honestly it’s not any of their business but I hear a lot of women say this and I feel it’s not fair to y’all for them to tell you no luckily I was 34 when I had my Second son so the doctor had no issue tying my tubes during my csection

I got mine done at 22 in Tyler, Tx. Texas law is 27 or 2 living children and if the doctor believes you will change your mind later (i.e. new marriage, death of a child) they can refuse. They have a series of questions they ask to determine if you meet the criteria.

I’m 24 and have mine burned

I’m a FTM and only having one child I’ll be getting my done after baby gets here in October I’m 28

I’m 23 with 2 boys and one on the way my Dr offered me to get my tubes tied when I had my second son… Im in arizona tho

I was 22 when I got my tubes tied but I’m 32 now and wish I had a girl.

Im 29 with 2 boys and they still wont do mine, because I’m not 30 or I dont have both genders. Plus I’m unmarried so they consider that too. Unless I’m 30 or have a girl they wont do them.

I was 21 , I had 4 pregnancys, I delivered 2 children. I had it done at Evansville Women’s hospital, now known as Gateway, at the time I had Indiana Medicaid. I was required to wait 30 days after initial consultation per Indiana law.

I hate that you can’t just go get this done. I’m almost 35 with 2 kids now a single mom don’t want anymore and I’m being given a hard time. My uterus my choice!


Youre old enough to do it so u need to let him know he doesmt decide for u

I was 23 when i had my tubes tied but i had 4 kids in 5 years (put the 1st up for adoption since i wasnt ready then) & I’m in Idaho. I think each place is different dependant on age & how many kids you have had already which i believe shouldnt matter if you want fixed you should be able to get fixed.

I’m 63 now and I dont regret having my tubal at age 22

I did at 23, but my last 2 was born with major medical issues. I had to fight the doctors and they made me wait 6 months verse 30 days. I’m almost 34 and I regret the decision I made. Not because I want more kid but because I was so young I’ve had many issues with my tubal.

I was 25. I had 2 kids. Both high risk pregnancies. She said normally not until your over 30, but made an exception bc of my health issues.I think all docs are different.

Definitely try another doctor! I had mine done at 24 after my 3rd was born and no questions asked.

Took until I was 40…and several different GYN drs…before I was finally able to get my tubes removed. I had my youngest (3rd) at 34yo…very unplanned.

I wanted mine done at 22. They literally would not until was 25. I had one boy and one girl. Result of this brought me my 3rd little bundle at 29. He is seriously my best little baby. I do not regret him for a second. But now they are officially tied. I live in upstate NY.

24 in co but I had 4 c sections prior

You can tell them that you have frequent heavy periods, and request surgical ablation. They cauterize the lining if your uterus, so no more blood, decreased to no period, and chances of pregnancy are down to almost zero…win, win, win and win.

Im 21, going to be 22 before i deliver my 3rd baby. I have done all my paper work to be cut tied and burned. The dr and i have talked, and she agrees with me on why i want this done. All three of my kids have been conceived while on birth control. My eldest i was on the pill and taken it every day as i should. My second was with the depo shot, and i had my shots as they were needed as to a week early. My 3rd child i had the mirena iud, it was in place and everything. And during this pregnancy i have had so many problems, i had a rupture in my placenta about 2 months ago, i am still bleeding and also have a huge blood clot (it is dissolving). My baby is fine and he is growing as planned and his heart is just perfect the dr says. But after all i have went through my dr finally agreed with me and said she would help me.

Horse shit had mine tied at 24 after my second child was born with autism. Even though the doc said some of the most messed up things like what if one of them dies etc I stood my ground and got my tubes tied.

I want mine ties. I’m 27 and have two girls. I’m getting divorced and I don’t want an accidental pregnancy

Had mine done when I was almost 24. Had just had my second child.

I got mine done at 30 but I had my kids late had my first at 27 and second at 29.

If it is the hormones in your birth control that is making you have problems check with your ob about the paragard IUD it’s a 10 year non-hormonal IUD.

Most won’t do unless medically necessary or woman is 25 with 1 boy and 1 girl

You could always just not have sex. You can also have your husband/boyfriend get himself fixed?

I have 3 kids and got my tubes tired at age 23

I was told by medicade u have to be 21 in Arkansas for them to even pay for it.

I’m in Texas i had mine did at 21

Va is 18 and consents. Check with state laws.

I had mine done 3 days before my 23rd birthday!

Call around, explain and find a doctor who will

Call your insurance directly and ask for their criteria. Other than that welcome to the hell of waiting. I’ve been waiting for 8yrs I just turned 30 and I’m having my tubes removed next month. Which BTW, I’d recommend that over tubes tied - Just throwing it out there for your consideration.

I had mine done after my first child some doctors will you just have to plead reasoning

Wisconsin with medicaid is 25 or if you have 3 kids.

i got mine in massachusetts after two kids at age 23.

It really depends on your insurance though. If you’re willing to pay for it out of pocket I don’t see why they would deny you but if you’re going through insurance you need to find out thier criteria for them to pay for it.

My daughter 22 when she had her she had twin boys and didn’t want anymore children this Alabama

I had mine done when I was 21.

I had 2 kids and got my tied at 24
