You can only get your tubes tied if your physician refers you to a specialist who can perform the procedure. Your physician will speak with you about whether or not you're old enough.

That above statement might be true in some countries but in New Zealand its not the case, you can choose to have one at any time here.

It does vary state to state and country to country and doctor to doctor.

I personally wouldn't recommend someone has a tubal ligation (at any age) unless theyre competely sure they never want another. the reason I say this, is because Ive seen so many women who split from their partners and decide they don't want more, or think straight after the birth of their baby that theyre finished, only to truly regret it later.

I had my tubes tied 18 months ago. for me it wasnt because I was finished having children, but because Ive had 5 c-sections and some of them havent gone well. I regretted it immediately, but know that it was a safe option for me.

I personally would opt for other options first, like a Mirena (IUD) which work for up to 5 years and have no implications on fertility at all.

Tubal ligations are such a permanent operation. and shouldn't be taken lightly at any age. goodluck
