I'm looking for advice and personal experience regarding getting a tubal ligation.

I'm in my mid 20's, and my GP flat out told me that I wasn't a candidate. It took a lot of talking to convince her that I was serious and she reluctantly gave me a referral but in her mind, it's to get the process started so that I can get it when I finally hit 30. They gynecologist agreed to see me for a consultation in a few weeks and did not outright refuse me because of my age. I still expect a fair amount of resistance because I'm unmarried and childless although I am in a stable long term relationship. I expected it, but I still don't like it, which is why I want to be prepared.
I am located in Los Angeles and looking for any information regarding making a convincing case to my doctor, experiences with the procedure itself and recovery, and doctor referrals just in case I get turned down. My email is in my profile.
