How old do you have to be to get your tubes tied without having kids?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Byron Hapner
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
No specific age: It is typically your choice when to have your tubes tied regardless of how many children you have. However, there are studies that suggest women of a younger age (perhaps under 30 years) are more likely to regret their decision later no matter how many children they have had. Also, there are many good forms of reversible contraception to consider.
