Sterilization Question

I'm a 26 (almost 27) year old female and I have been adamant and steadfast in my decision to not have children since I have been 16 years old. I have been honest with all of my boyfriends in the past just as I will in the future.
I am going to give you a little of my history so that you can understand and I will try to make it as to the point as possible... All have appeared decent and admirable men then they turned into lying, manipluative and selfish individuals. I do not know if they are just good at putting up fronts or just the wrong class of people, but that seems to be my luck. Some have attempted to purposely impregnate me. I am not trying to classify or catagorize all men as... well you know... but that's where they're starting to end up in my eyes.
Frankly I am sick and tired of being in fear of becoming pregnant so amI looking for a permanent solution. Whether it is herbal, surgical, or some other way to become infertile, any and all information about acheiving this will be appreciated.

Re: Sterilization Question

There are long term hormonal methods that a guy can't see. Implanon, IUDs...
I thought it was the policy of most places not to sterilise someone unless they had a few children already or medical cause for not wanting them, so true sterilisation is probably not an option.
The methods I mentioned are near on 99.9% effective and last for years.

Re: Sterilization Question

From my experience, most doctors will tie your tubes at around age 30. It can't hurt to ask your gyno about it. I would say that you've decided you don't want children and most likely prefer to remain single.

Re: Sterilization Question

I was sterilized at age 38 yrs, a simple and permanent solution.
I'm not sure if this is possible at your age. I had one child and did not want any more mainly because of health and difficult childbirth reason. It was done keyhole surgery and I had no after effects.
This was many years ago and I never once regretted it. (It is a totally personal decision). You may be lucky enough to find a Dr willing to do it for you.
There are other means of BC as you must know but for me this was the most reliable,
Good Luck,
