aww *hugs* I am sorry. I didnt know that its illegal for the doctor to tie your tubes under 25 if you havent had a kid thats total bs. If your married have you talked to your husband about having a vasectomy? I dont think there are laws with age and it is supposed to be alot safer and less recovery time

A vasectomy would definately be a much less invasive solution.

I know it’s frustrating that they won’t tie your tubes but I think that rule exists to protect shortsighted women from themselves. From 18-25 many ladies’ priorities change BIGTIME! I don’t think this applies to you but better safe than sorry!

By The Way I have used condoms exclusively for the past 6 years and have had no incidents (i.e. never had a single one break, no kids…). What’s WAY more than 97% effective!

Ugh, that’s so frustrating!  I had no idea they wouldn’t do that unless you were 25.

Who told you that you can’t get an IUD? I know a lot of docs PREFER not to give them to women who have never had kids, but as far as I know, it’s just that–a preference, not a hard and fast rule. I would seek out a 2nd opinion/new doctor.

You should be able to get an IUD. I know lots of people who have never had children or been pregnant who have IUDs. You can’t get mirena, but you could get a different one, like Paraguard.

@cannon: You should be able to get Mirena, too. In fact, my gyno tried to push it on me (I’m 22, not yet married, no children). I declined because I’ve heard a few too many horror stories about them, but you can definitely get them.

@Mrs.ChubbyBunny: hhmmm yeahhh I would seek out a 2nd opinion since it seems like other posters, like myself, have heard of women being able to get them without having had kids first. I know they’re the most popular form of BC in Europe and I can’t imagine that they’re ONLY given to women who have had kids there.

I’d talk to a different doctor about an IUD.  You can definitely get them even if you’ve never been pregnant/had children.

I live in Texas I know girls who have IUD and have never had kids before. This one girl I know has a tube thing inserted in her upper arm thats last years but Im not sure what its called, I think that would be best if your body cant handle an IUD.

@Mrs.ChubbyBunny: Like the ones you mentioned… attaching to the uterine wall, puncturing holes in it, profuse bleeding, enough pain to make you pass out upon insertion/removal… not things I want to deal with.

I agree with PPs, though, get a second opinion. You could even go to a Planned Parenthood. They’re more than happy to talk to you about them for a cheap consultation fee (like $30) and will even do the insertion for you. Unfortunately they don’t take insurance.

Thats crazy! 

Can you go to another country and get it done? It’s a shame you don’t have that choice!
