I'm 23, and I have three kids (my tubes are tied). When i was pregnant with my twins and already had a 1 year old, I asked the obgyn if i could have my tubes tied. They just told me to talk it over with my husband and go over some paperwork. That day i signed the papers to give them permission to go ahead and do the procedure while i had my c-section....there were no problems... You dont have to be a certain age, just as long as YOU know you really want to do it and youre not going to want anymore kids. Most doctors will listen to want YOU want, and if not see someone that will. I thought you had to have 3 kids or be 25 years old. It may differ in certain states. I was in Texas when I had my tibes tied. I was also 25 and just had my 3rd kid. There are not laws in any of the 50 US states that pertain to when or what form of Birth Control a woman chooses to use whether it is surgical, pharmaceutical or otherwise. The exception would be a minor (someone under 18) who might in some states need parental permission for surgical procedures.
