No, I'm sure they can do it. But I would ask your DH to get a vesectomy instead cause it's safer. My DH is getting it done cause he doesn't think I should have to do it, seeing as I had our THREE boys. HAHA!!
My doctor won't do it during delivery. He said he will discuss it at my 6 week Post Partum appointment.
There is also another procedure that is non-surgical and can be done vaginally. It is called Essure. I hear it is even less invasive than a vasectomy. You could inquire about that.
My doctor said she can tie my tubes via an incision in my belly button which works right away or vaginally but you have to go back a few weeks later for a die test to make sure it takes. Both procedures she will not due until my 6 week post partum check up.
If I had a c-section she may do it then but I have to ask her as I have no plans of a c-s if I can help it. Also check with the hospital you are delivering at. Many of the hospital around here have catholic affiliation and will not allow it to be performed there. My hospital is not of catholic affiliation but my OB does it as an in office procedure.
mabst196:You can't get them tied vaginally. They would do it by laparoscopy (little holes as opposed to a big incision). You can get essure (the coils) but I doubt they would be trying to insert anything after delivery.
Actually it can be done vaginally so their are no external scars.
