Yes: But it is a very important decision. Although people talk about reversing this surgery, the results are variable , so assume that it will be permanent. You are young and life changes more than we think at 21. If you seek sterility there are many options without surgery. Take your time to make a decision.

What is getting a tubal ligation like?

Depends: Is it being done at the time of a c-section or just the tubal? If done at the time of c-section, you won't even know you had it. If as a stand-alone surgery, you will have pain from the incision(s) but it resolves very quickly. Your obgyn should be able to give you specific details of how he/she does it. Good luck.

Permanent contracept: Tuboligation is a permanent contraceptive method and some women may prefer this after having "enough children" and some never want children at all . It is relatively safe and effective procedure. There are other methods such as iud, hormone implants (nexplanon) are quite good as well. Or male partner can get snipped--very effective as well. If u r considering, consult doc. Good luck.
