Please stop and think about this. I was 24 years old when I had this done. I had four babies starting at 19 yrs. old. I was tierd and my married home life was not the best to put it nicely. So after I had my fourth child I had my tubes tied, cut, burned you name it. I now regreat it so much I want a baby so badly that it hurts. But I can't have one. I also have a condition that may have in part been due to the surgry and will have to have a hysterectomy (I'm 38 now). The pain is so much especially when I ovulate that I don't know how to handle it sometimes. Every month I know which side I'm ovulating on. My insides feel like they will fall out with every move I make.
I'm not trying to sound like I'm feeling sorry for myself because it is something I did and I'll have to live with it for ever. All I'm saying is I wish someone would have told me some of this before I made the worst mistake of my life (or at least one of them). Please think!!!! It is your right, and your body and I certainlly have no right to tell you what to do, but I a m aking you to think long and hard about it, for your sake. Thanks for listening to my rmbling.
