Christie Haskell wrote about her initial experience trying to get her tubes tied on the Stir. You really should read the whole thing. Here’s a snippet:
I had my own experience of a doctor being incredibly rude and angry with me when I went in to get my referral to therapy so I could go get my tubal. But honestly, what right does anyone have to put any of these restrictions on the procedure?
My doctor got angry with me when I told her, after she kept pushing, that I was sure enough that I would abort if I got pregnant now. I also told her that I realized that if I REALLY regretted it, IVF or adoption were both options. Probably the clincher that made her slam the door though, was when she told me if it were up to her, she wouldn’t do it, and I told her it was a good thing it wasn’t up to her or I’d have to get a new doctor.
Later, she was able to find a doctor who would actually perform the operation, which she also wrote about. You can read that whole story here.
