Question: Can I get sterilized at your clinic? And if so is there an age requirement? I am 24 with 1 child already and have no plans for another at all in my future.
Answer: We do not preform sterilization procedures at our clinic but there are many providers locally that do. Currently, most providers require patients to be at least 21 years of age. Most health insurance plans cover birth control, including sterilization, for free or for a very low cost.
Question: How old do you have to be to get your tubes tied?
Answer: Although there may not be an age restriction in the state of Ohio for a woman to seek out a tubal ligation, your insurance company may set restrictions on paying for it. We encourage you to call your health insurance company to receive a more accurate answer.
