Vasectomy question.


Q: I'm 15 years old , and as of several years ago i've known that i don't want kids. i can't stand them. i have no patience even for my own baby sister. i treat children as adults. about a year ago i started having sex with my girlfriend, and condoms are getting expensive. neither of us have std's so i would like a vasectomy. my parents and i have already had this discussion and they agree with me. so my question is, can i get a vasectomy at age 15 or 16 if my parents consent to it? i understand it is permanent (unless i choose to have a reversal.) and it does not prevent std's.
