Oh - should also add that my sister had a tubal 6.5 years ago, and as far as I know, she's never had a problem.
Honestly, I decided on the tubal, because after 5 c-sections, I do not
want to take a chance on another one - ever. I wouldn't have an abortion, so this decision was kind of a "what if the worst?" scenario. I'd rather be the one who can't have kids than have dh be unable to have them. He may want them one day with someone else, should we split up or something happen to me (not being morbid - I see this as just being real - these things could
happen). No matter what may happen to him or our marriage, I am
done having babies. So, it made sense to me that I be the one to remove my fertility. DH was totally willing to have a vasectomy, but that just didn't make sense to me
...especially as I was having surgery, anyway.
So - there are a lot of factors to consider when making this decision, yk? Usually, when I explain my reasoning to people irl, they give me weird looks, but...I'm used to that.
