Hi all, I went for a Sterilisation appointment just over a week ago, I don't have any children but have 2 stepchildren and a grandson and really don't want to have children of my own as I am now 37 and have never been a maternal person. I went to the hospital and sat for around 20mins while the female Doctor talked at me not to me for 20mins telling me how I was making a mistake, it's every woman's duty to have a child etc etc. Anyway I am allergic to nickel and so cannot have essure fitted to block my tubes but my mum is the same so had plastic clips used around 30yrs ago and has had no problems. When I asked about this after being belittled for so long I was told that hospital no longer used plastic clips only metal ones the same as essure so there was nothing they could do for me! Go home and talk my husband into having a vasectomy! Is anyone aware of how I can find out I'd any hospitals are still using the plastic clips?? I'm annoyed about the situation and a little stuck at the moment.
Thanks in advance xx
