Don't think sterilization is a good idea at 23. there are lots of other options. There is about a 0.5% chance of uterine rupture or tear if one labours after a lower segment caeserean section. A different kind of caesar has a higher risk. Discuss this with your obstetrician

I also had a C Sec with my first one, and doc told me that it wil be possible for natural, if you doc gives you the OK.
My brother was my parents' fourth child, and she had c sec with him, for the reason that she could be sterilised.
Sterilisation they only tied your tubes, whereas hystorectomy, they remove all/some of your reproductive organs. I know that a hysterectomy is veeeeeeery painfull (as per word of mouth), and I don't think that you will be able to cope with the pain of this major op and the caring of you children, especially a new born.
Good luck
