Message length 300 characters recommended

I will start off by saying that I got my tubes tied because I was already have a csection, so I would already be in an operating room.

I would highly suggest the men getting a vasectomy if the woman isn't getting a csection because the male surgery is less evasive and it doesn't take as long as to heal.

Women are 20 times more likely to have a serious problem related to a tubal than men face from a vasectomy.


Tubal ligation is the female sterilization operation. In this procedure, the Fallopian tubes, which carry the ripe egg from the ovary to the uterus each month, are cut and sealed off. This makes a woman unable to become pregnant and, therefore, no further birth control precautions are necessary.

Vasectomy is the male sterilization operation. In this procedure, the tubes that carry the sperm are cut in order to prevent sperm from reaching the outlet into the penis.
