sterilization and the 20-Somethings

While most women can’t even imagine a life without children, there are women that cannot imagine a life with them!

For Bri Seeley, this was the choice she wanted, but when she told her doctor, she was told she wasn’t a  good candidate for permanent sterilization because she was too young, (she was 24) she was told the same thing year after year.

Most candidates for sterilization are over 35 and have had a child to be considered.

Seeley was able to have a procedure when she was 30, but only after explaining her many reasons for wanting to live child free.

“She’d also gotten her doctor’s assurance that she seemed like a woman who knew what she wanted and who was, in fact, a very good candidate for sterilization.”
