I've also thought about it -- I don't see any children in my future - not mine away. If anything I would want to adopt. I haven't spoken to a Doctor about it, but Hormonal Imbalance is something I would be concerned about. I wouldn't want to start growing a beard or something - but then you 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 30.
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 out..
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 would most definitely consider it for myself.
Im 26 with one child, and will not be having anymore. Im not happy to take the birth control pill for the next 20+ years. My doctor is very unhelpful though, and almost dismisses my POV and concerns.
I personally think its a good choice.

My wife has ho hormonal issues and takes no supplements or anything and she doesn't have any kind of inbalance. She doesn't have a beard.
She read about uterus transplants also and discussed with me. It supposedly only works one time. So it's a one shot deal I guess. If it doesn't work the first time, there is no second chance.
My wife loves kids and that's why she wants another. She has discussed with her daughter to carry one and with my sister. CRAZY! It isn't going to happen. She also talks about wanting to adopt.
A woman's insides can end up sitting on her bladder when the utuerus is missing. It can cause her to have to pee alot and my wife has issues with laughing and peeing accidently. I can't tickle her else she will pee herself. She can't run without peeing issues. She is considering having the "lift" done and I think she should. But that is her decision.
edit to add: Thank you HugMyRek for the nice words. I love my wifey!

Okay...the wife also says you can have the lining of the uterus removed to stop having periods and you can still have your uterus and stilll have the ability to bear children.
Something to keep in mind.

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-
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).
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 meant it.
There are two options: Tubal Ligation-outpatient surgery to cut or tie the fallopian tubes, or Essure spring-like coils inserted to block the fallopian tubes.
Tubal ligation, commonly knows as “getting your tubes tied,” is a surgical sterilization technique for women. This procedure closes the fallopian tubes, and stops the egg from traveling to the uterus from the ovary. It also prevents sperm from reaching the fallopian tube to fertilize an egg. In a tubal ligation, fallopian tubes are cut, burned, or blocked with rings, bands or clips. The surgery is effective immediately. Tubal ligations are 99.5% effective as birth control. They do not protect against sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS.
