Hi Stephanie - Welcome! I am currently planning my 3rd section, but I wanted to chime in and give you some support to refuse the tubal that your doctor is recommending!! You need to ask your doctor the question WHY! Having as many children as you want is completely your perogative... your doctor can only advise you on the risks associated with an increasing number of C sections. If your uterus is not too thinned and you don't have a ton of adhesions, then she need to be able to articulate why she thinks you should stop. It is true that after 4 c sections you have a huge jump in the risk of placenta accreta and placenta previa,

as for tubal, I am not a fan of the procedure and would recommend you do more research on the effects, but thats my personal opinion from having 2 girl friends who had tubals and had devastating effects from the procedures.

Good luck to you and keep us posted.
