If you were sure at the age of 21 that you would never want kids, would you get a vasectomy/tubes tied or just use traditional birth control?

I was sure. I have always known i did not want children of my own. I had to wAit until I wad 28 but one week after my birthday i was on the table having a tubal ligation. I am now 35 and have no regrets.

BC, just incase something happened later on down the road like wanting to marry someone who really wanted biological kids. Or even the chance I change my mind. You never know what will happen.

Some really do know (I did), and both procedures are reversible, but I would agree that for most people they should not make a decision like that so young.

If I were straight I would without doubt. I never wanted to have kids.

I'm 23 and I really don't think I want kids ever. But I would never do this bc someday I might change my mind.

Exactly! I kept being told I have to wait until in 28. Well I'm 29 and they still won't unless there is a medical reason.

I have one son. My tubes were tied six weeks later; I was 22. They wouldn't do it during labor.

When you're that age you may think you know everything, I know I did. Now I know I didn't. So much can change, don't do it.

At 21 with no medical reasoning for sterilization you'd be hard pressed to find a doctor willing to do this. Especially women.

Definitely. Even just comparing 5 years, me when I turned 21 and me when I turned 26... a world of difference. You never know where life may take you!

No, so much in life can happen after that. I would wait.
