It took me nearly 9 months to get Kaiser’s approval for it
I had to have an initial appt w/my OBGYN to express my desire for one & discuss my options. That appt involved 30 mins of being told about every other form of BC available instead of about my tubal ligation options.
Then come back for a follow up.
Then I was asked again if removing my Fallopian tubes was what I wanted vs. another form of BC.
Then I had to have a consult w/the surgeon.
Nine damn months (the length of a pregnancy) for this process.
But the 9 month process just to GET A TUBAL LIGATION nearly drove me out of my mind. The constant questioning. The hoops to jump through.
