I have had 4 C-sections and was told after my last one that my uterus was in such bad shape that if I would have carried my son(born 12wks early) to full term that my uterus would have probably ruptured and my sons and my own life would have been in danger. After his birth, I had the Mirena IUD inserted. I was very sure that we would not have any more kids!!! We lost our 2nd child due to a doctor goof up!!-- So we have 1 girl and 2 boys at home. I applied for the family planning medicaid and was going to have my tubes tied because I hate how the IUD makes me feel!!-- Since having that put in, I seem to stay aggravated all the time and the smallest things bother me alot!! So, anyway, I was just going to have my tubes tied, but now that just seems so permanent!!! I would love to have another baby(girl) years down the road. I know its not a smart decision with the condition of my uterus, but just feel like later I am going to want that baby sooo bad that it mite be worth the risk. I don't know what to do. My husbands work doesn't provide insurance and with me being a diabetic, just paying for insurance isn't an option-- Medicaid will pay for the tubal, but i'm sure later on it won't pay to have it reversed. -- And I'm sure the hubby wouldn't go for that. He is fine with the kids we have and would not want me to put my self in danger for another one. Men just don't understand these things. -- And right now, I do not want anymore kids either, but I'm sure that years down the road I may want another one, and it just seems that if I get a tubal, then another baby can't even be considered.
