could probably take hormone supplements to combat that kind of side affect.
EB I think you right - that it is possible to be come pregant in the tubes as opposed to the Uterus. I'm pretty sure I learned about that in BIO
Whats this temporary sterilization you had done? It sounds kind of dangerous .... how exactly did they do it? I'm a little leary on trying that one
I'm not too sure what to tell you - but if you feel that its right for you - then perhaps its something to look further into. And only if you are
CERTAIN that you don't want children in the future.
I don't think you'll grow a beard, hah hah! There is probably a suppliment. Garners further research. Plenty of children to adopt. How would you
choose? I mean, how does a person choose-
I'd take, like, 7, all the older ones, 'c'mon here's your room, don't be a nuisance and we'll get along just fine' 'Hey you! I said don't be
a nuisance! What part of NU Ih Sance?!! ?!. No. Maybe not so good. I'm not sure I'd be able to foster, either. That one makes no sense to me.
Yes, I'm certain. No more children born of this one. Well, I can think of a few men who's genes I wouldn't mind being the prize bearer of-but their
all in my head
(how convienient). 'Cides, who'd want a short, incredibly sturdy amblioptic autistic? ummm.... And through my experience of it
in the context of everyone else, uh--no.
Childbirth based on love-and loves time is past. Someday, I hope to play mother to a pair of dogs who like the hills. What if I find it tomorrow--oh
sure I want to bog myself for the next 20 when that trist ends a year later.
My first pregnancy was a badly thought out accident-but a blessing and a joy. The next 2 were parental managed rapes. What can I say, I had planned
not to have kids in the first place.
The procedure was called a tubal ligatamy. It's a day surgery and I had to convince a panel of 'judges' to have it. I just put my foot down and
spat it at them to the point where had they denied me they would have appeared publically as the corporate head of a wicked breeding program. And I
The decision was based upon my views on life and abortion. I believe life begins at conception. I myself 'would' have an abortion in most scenarios
outside a heart endeared arrangement. It solves a problem on all sides--but for one. The government wanting to pump it's numbers. And yet-I don't
want to have an abortion.
For those who don't know, the surgery is harmlessly simple but as with all anestesia scenarios, one can die from it-they slice in through the belly
button, blow up the stomach cavity with a gas and insert a camera and tools to snip segments of the tubes connecting the ovaries to the uterus, and
then solder(sp) those ends.
It is reverseable, can grow back together, and is not infallible; and tubal pregnancy is still a risk. Celebacy is the only foolproof way, of course,
but, hey-I'm human. And I have gotten pregnant on the pill. The phrase "don't look at me I might get pregnant" comes to mind. Somebody else could
have been this endowed.
So for me-in the rare event that I have intercourse-which really is rare, as I'm ugly as hell; as well as Washingtonians are not really a HOT lot--a
bunch of dopers, felons, alcoholics, sex offenders, tax evaders and evangelists. (did I just describe the country pool?)
The condom fails-or there is not one, then in that event my thinking was, "Well, as a backup plan to not be forced to shunt that little spirit back
to where it came--cause I'm certainly not letting it come in. I'd like to think I'm freeing it up to be born in a better place!".
The initial procedure solved that in a snap. I've always wanted my uterus out. It doesn't take from my feminitiy a bit.
I see it as responsibility, really. Though MANY will disagree on the logic, it's never really bothered me. Somewhere when I logged on and went to
answer, I glimpsed 'successful transplant'-maybe there is someone who would prefer a living to a corpses uterus, if it is still viable. They can
Just in general, I was thinking on the extreme side of religious meddlesomness and the 'go forth and populate' theory. We are populated, already.
Being born does not result in an obligation to bear more. Only Adam and Eve were told to populate, I believe. I never heard where god said, hey
everyone, make as many babies as you possibly can--in which case, I should have born at least 30 by now.
There are sooooo many bearing more.
No one will miss mine, in fact, I imagine a few sighs of relief. (oh thank god no more of that line..)
