A 21-year-old female asked:

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

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.

Can I Get My Tubes Tied Without My Husband Consent?

Yes: Only the patient has to give consent for a procedure on their own body. You need to make sure you do not want any additional children prior to pursuing. This should be viewed as a non reversible procedure. If you are not sure, then look into long term birth control options that are reversible such as IUD or Nexplanon

Atleast 21: I would recommand though atleast 30. The regret rate after age of 30 is less than before 30.
