tying my tubes
Hi there, I would like to find out a bit about tying my tubes. I am 33 years old and have a child of 8 years. I am in a relationship and my boyfriend does not want to have children. I also do not want more children. How invasive is the procedure, how long are you in hospital. How long is the recovery time. Thanks

Many sterilisations are done laparoscopically these days. You would then be done as a day case and should be back at work in a week.
