Done Having Kids

So, today I'm getting the NovaSure procedure. It's an endometrial ablation that lightens your period to mere spotting. It's for women who are done having kids, which I am 99 percent sure I am. I got my tubes tied when I had my second,(which I can get reversed) but the NovaSure procedure will make it virtually impossible, and dangerous, to get pregnant again. I know I don't want anymore kids, but something about the procedure makes me wonder if I'm absolutely sure. I only say I don't want any more children because I'm the single mother of two whose fathers are MIA and I don't want to risk having another fatherless child. I guess what I'm saying is, should my apparent poor judgment in men influence me to not have more children? I really thought I had it right the last time and he proved worse than the first.

    Sheila, yea I think that's the part that is bothering me, that it's the end of my fertility. I really don't want more kids, I have my two and three nephews, but it's like the end of an era for me...at 26. But, I'm going to go through with it because I really don't want kids and my period is horrible after my tubal ligation and I can't deal with that. Thanks! :)

      Linda, I was iffy about the whole procedure but nothing stays inside so that helped me decide. I had gotten the IUD once and it was horrible, but this is just to thin out the lining of the uterus by cauterizing it so that I don't bleed heavily. If I'm done having kids, I don't need to get a heavy period. I'll post as soon as the anesthesia wears off! Thanks for the advice! :)
