Should you ever consider getting a permanent method of birth control (vasectomy, or sterilization), if you think that you might change your mind at a later date? No.
Ask yourself the right questions before you commit to such a surgery.
The body has a natural tendency to repair itself. In very rare cases, often less than 1% of cases, sometimes tubal sterilizations or vasectomies are reversed by the body itself. This occurs when the body connects the parts of the vas deferens, in the case of a vasectomy, or when the body reconnects the fallopian tubes, in the case of tubal ligation.
Some methods of permanent birth control have less risk than others when it comes to that small number of unexpected pregnancies. Ask your doctor if this is important to you.
If, after one of the couple has undergone sterilization, and pregnancy occurs, the reaction is often one of shock, dismay, or anger. Sometimes the partners will accuse each other of infidelity. This can be a difficult time for both partners. The best solution is to speak to your doctor immediately to determine how fertility was regained, which will help to re-establish the bond of trust. After this, you will have to decide how you want to deal with the unexpected pregnancy.
