26 or 2-3 kids. In some states. Or find a doctor that will do it no matter what. Cause most won’t. :roll_eyes: Differs by state I’m in KY.

Its usually 30 or 3 live babies

Most drs won’t do them unless your second child or medical reasoning

I’m Ms 2 kids after age 25 and you need to have “husbands consent” or they wont approve it before

I had mine dont at 28

Im 29… 2 emergency sections one due to ruptured uterus due my 3rd section in 2 weeks and they still wont. X

In Illinois 22 years ago u couldn’t get ur tubes tied unless u was over 21 or had at least 3 kids

Mine doctor offered do to mine during my second csection next week and I’m 21.

Mine said 25 plus, 2 kids or medical issues. And needed husband’s permission :confused:

Every state is different (which is ridiculous because a man who wants a vasectomy doesn’t have to go through a bunch of shit) It should be your body your choice!but you have to figure out what your state requirements are or what is offered.

I had mine done at 26, my doctor was the one that suggested it. Then again it was my second and both C-sections.

18 years or older(21 in some states). Don’t let the drs tell you otherwise. You don’t need to have kids or be married.
