thank you so much for all your responses.....i was certain that is what i would get...no grounds for suing....i just wanted to hear what others had to say...
and yes i did have another doc tell me the same thing...sorry, i didn't mention that.
it was mainly a curiosity post.
but thank you....!!!!!
7 years ago, just a few months after I gave birth to my son, I asked my doctor if he would perform a tubal ligation on me and he said "NO". The reasoning behind it was that I was only 22 at the time. I knew I only wanted one child and no more for the rest of my entire life, but still he said he would not do it.....thinking I would eventually change my mind. Instead, he told me the best next thing would be the IUD...which I did get and had for 3 years until it caused major cramps, bleeding for 10 days and inbetween periods and caused a lot of vaginal infections....
To get to my point... now at the age of nearly 30...a year ago I became pregnant and needless to say I did not want to be pregnant...this unplanned and unwanted pregnancy resulted in 'termination'....my question is...
do i have any grounds to sue my doctor that told me 7 years ago that I could not get a tubal ligation....which led to an abortion....which I think I deserve some sort of compensation for what I had to go through and that could have been avoided if I had my tubes tide in the first place 7 years ago. I knew then and still know now, what I wanted and always wanted...was to have no more children after my one son.
Any help here would be appreciated. Thank you.
