    I'm a nurse and i had a tubal. The reason you have to wait is because for you to heal, that's it. I would wait. You don't want to damamge anything in there. Please follow my advice. There are so many women have to come back in for repairs because they didn't follow the after care rules. It's also better because of the risk of infection. Please follow the doctors advice. You won't need any birth control after the two weeks, it truly works.
