Maybe: Depends on type of procedure, and on luck. One question is, "When should a person feel old enough to sterilize permanently?" That means not being able to have future children, ever. For most couples, age and the number of living children are the major factors. We doctors do not want to do something to a person whom we feel is not that old (who maybe will have a change of heart later).
