I want to get my tubes tied and he says no

I'm done having kids, we decided on three and that's what we have. Our youngest is 3 and I'm done with the toddler stage and ready for the next chapter in our lives and for me that means permanent birth control like getting my tubes tied or essure. My husband thinks differently. He thinks we may want another child down the road and we will regret it but I know I won't. I love my kids to death but 3 is enough, I can't handle anymore.

I hate to go behind his back and get it done when he's out of town but I know I'm done having kids.



Let me clarify what I mean when I say getting it done behind his back. He works out of town for 6 weeks at a time. I'd secretly set up the procedure for a time when he's at work and I'd tell him either the night before or the day of when it would be too late for him to come home.

    Many doctors will not do it without a spouses agreement on the procedure

    It's your body, I'd say do it. He can throw his fit but ultimately the decision to have another child is both of your decision and if you know you are done he needs to respect that.

    Will he have to go with me or can I just say we are separated? I haven't really discussed things with my on/gyn yet.

    No I'm 100% done. 3 is all I can handle.
