It is risky at any age. It is most recommended by doctors that the man get a vasectomy rather than the woman get a tubal ligation. The recovery time is less for men and it is less risky since there are fewer tubes and less chance of complications.

If you want to reverse your ligation you need to find a very good doctor to do this. The only risk I can see is your age and physical condition.

From my understanding once done you are done in making babies.

Why are there no age or eligibilty restrictions for abortions but there are for tubal ligation despite being her body and her choice?

Tubal ligation is like birth control. You have plenty of time to decide whether to do it or not but once you are pregnant there's a time limit. And age limit on abortion? So only adults could have an abortion? Now that is backwards. It's not in a child's best interest to be forced to be a parent. Abortion does not stop you from being a parent after but tubal ligation def can. And I have to say I agree with age limit on tubal because we get many questions here about reversals and they stuck to the limit but then met a new man and changed their minds. Abortion is the only way unless you want to be parent or is ready to give your child away while there are many options for birth control. As long as there are proper bc tubal is in a way a luxury version. The options are many while for abortion there's only one. There's many ways to protect yourself even if they can fail but terminating a pregnancy has only one.
