Huffington Post media request: sterilisation requests

We've had a request for case studies from Jasmin Gray, a journalist with the Huffington Post; as part of their coverage of Women's Month, Jasmin is hoping to hear from women in their twenties and thirties who have told their doctor that they want to be sterilised.

Jasmin says: "I have spoken to some young women who said they felt dismissed by their doctor, who assumed they would want children (or more children) in the future and told them to come back when they were older - despite the fact they were experiencing health problems from their current methods of contraception. Have you gone through this? Or have you had a really positive experience where your doctor really listened to your experiences and help to set the wheels in motion?"

Jasmin is happy for participants to remain anonymous.

If you're interested in contributing your story, or have any questions, please feel free to contact Jasmin on We at MNHQ don't have any further details about this, and Jasmin won't necessarily be monitoring the thread, so if you have any questions please do get in touch directly.
