Access to permanent birth control can be a difficult journey, not only making the decision to do it but finding a provider to perform it
Although the conversation in the last few months has increased significantly regarding birth control and access to certain types, it has been a narrative among women for years.
Dr. Brenner is joined by Olivia Downs, who recently had a TikTok go viral with over 3.9 million views, regarding her pursuit of a tubal ligation -a form of permanent birth control. Olivia’s experience is one that is reflected in many other women who try to purse a tubal ligation but are denied by their provider for reasons outside medical reasons, including regret and then are forced to “doctor shop.”
Oliva and Dr. Brenner discuss her experience, the issue of regret and the collective experience of women trying to pursue permanent birth control.
