Actually it isn't that great of idea to tell your doctor. I tell my doctor what he needs to know and never that we are swingers. This advice came from a doctor, who is in the Lifestyle. You tell your doctor and now it is in your medical file. The doctor isn't suppose to say anything, to other people but that doesn't mean he won't. Also anyone in that office can now see what is in your record.

Bonis - I'm really happy that you've decided to tell your doctor why. It's important. They will tell you things you already know - i.e., wear condoms. Also, they would probably suggest STD testing. When I told mine, she wasn't thrilled about it - she said I should really think about it, mainly from a mental standpoint, could I handle it (I didn't go into the details that I had previously been "in the lifestyle"...).

Also, I'm with you - I support Planned Parenthood. Although I think you could still use them, and you would actually be supporting them because they base what you pay on your income, so I'm assuming that you would be paying full price with them...

Make that a long TIME ago, like 20 years. I had to rest for a couple of days and not push it for a while after that, but can't give you specifics. Probably others here can better answer your question about tubal ligation recovery time. Sorry!

I'll ask but pretty sure that since they did his vasectomy, I'm not sure I'd qualify. What's the recovery like? I'm a bartender so I'm on my feet for 6-7 hours, and I ride a motorcycle to work! I suppose I could just research it online, but I like personal opinions and experiences. :)

I had a tubal ligation years ago, when I was about your age, Bonis. It was day surgery, as Carrie said, tho my doc did 2 incisions -one in my navel, one above the pubic bone. Are you sure your insurance won't cover it? Mine did, but it was a long tome ago.

Tubal ligation is not the same thing as a hysterectomy.

Really!? For some reason I had this archaic "they have to cut me open a la c-section and reach in, snip and twist and tug, and staple me back together!"

We're absolutely done having kids, we have four together, I think that's enough. :)

A tubal really isn't much of a surgery. They go in through the belly button and you are home the same day.

Yes, I suppose I really ought to have taken more time to compose the question!

I think I will just 'fess up to my PCM, I'd rather have a professional "in the know" just in case. I just don't know if everything we talk about goes into our file, I'd really rather that NOT be in mine.

As for Planned Parenthood, I support the program, but I won't use it. I have insurance, and feel absolutely wrong taking supplies and services from those who actually need it because they DON'T have insurance. Yes yes, my taxes pay for the programs, blah dee blah. Doesn't stop the guilt, so I'll bite the bullet and ask my doc.

Thanks for helping me make the decision! :D

Bonis, now that you gave us more information, it's easier to understand what you meant. ;-)

You don't have to tell your doctor why you want the IUD, but be ready to explain if she asks. Hopefully she is fully trained and able to handle things that are a little out of the ordinary. Another option is to go to Planned Parenthood for birth control.
