I'm going through something similar to you except I have a copper IUD now. I've been having a lot of issues with possible endometriosis but my doctor (gyno) really wants to take the IUD out because 1) she wants to rule out that first and 2) if it is indeed endo, IUD and endo are not a good mix.
I talked to her about getting my tubes tied because with my neuro issues plus my migraines, none of my doctors want me on hormones and this would be my only b/c option as I can't do condoms either. Ok, well she does not want me to go under the knife at all. She is really discouraging me from a tubal ligation and she is pushing me to push my husband for a vasectomy :(
I have spoken with him about it and he basically turns pale each time and is really dead set against it. She says that a tubal is just too risky for me. Now I know different doctors are more conservative than others so I may be getting a second opinion but I was intrigued by your post seeing the similar issue.
Are you getting a c-section or are you delivering vaginal? I think its easier to get the tubal when you are having a baby correct? I really have no idea, just asking. My 'baby' is a teenager so its been a while for me.
