What is "tubal ligation"?
Tubal ligation is a surgical form of sterilization.  It is a permanent form of birth control.  During the surgery, the fallopian tubes are blocked; this can be done by tying, sealing, or attaching a ring or clip to them.  This procedure can be performed postpartum (at time of cesarean section or within 48 hours after vaginal delivery) or as an interval procedure (performed six weeks after delivery or at any time not related to pregnancy).  Postpartum tubal ligation is performed through a small incision under the navel.  Interval tubal ligation can be performed through a small bikini type incision or by a technique called laparoscopy.  During laparoscopy, the doctor uses an instrument-like telescope, called a laparoscope, to look at the pelvic organs and to block the fallopian tubes.
 
 
How does tubal ligation work?
Tubal ligation permanently blocks the fallopian tubes so the egg cannot move down the tube and the sperm cannot reach the egg, therefore pregnancy cannot occur.
 
 
How effective is tubal ligation?
Tubal ligation is 99.20 effective.  If a woman does get pregnant after sterilization, there is a greater chance that it is a tubal pregnancy.  Failure of the procedure is more likely if a woman is relatively young, because younger woman are more fertile than older women.
 
 
Am I a good candidate for tubal ligation?
Tubal ligation is ideal for those women who are certain they wish no further children and need a reliable contraceptive method.  If you are considering tubal ligation, you and your partner should discuss vasectomy, a sterilization procedure performed on men.  Compared to female sterilization, vasectomy is simpler, safer, less expensive, and more (99.9%) effective.  It is performed under local anesthesia by a urologist.
 
 
Are there any reasons why I shouldn't have a tubal ligation?

Tubal ligation is a permanent procedure.  You and your partner should be absolutely sure that you do not want anymore children-now or in the future.  If there is any chance that you might want to have children in the future, you should think about using another method of birth control.  There may be a greater chance that you will regret your decision if:

Abortion Clinic RU486 you are young
Abortion Clinic RU486 you are recently divorced or in an unstable marriage
Abortion Clinic RU486 your life circumstances are changing
Abortion Clinic RU486 you are unhappy with other reversible methods of birth control performed in the immediate postpartum period; it should be delayed if there is any issue with your baby's health

Although in some cases tubal ligation can be reversed, it is a difficult and expensive operation not covered by health insurance.  Afterwards  there is a greater risk of ectopic pregnancy.  Tubal ligation, in general, is an elective procedure and should be delayed if there is any uncertainty.  Laparoscopic tubal ligation is not right for all women.  If you have had prior abdominal surgery, are very overweight, or have medical or gynecologic problems, a larger incision and hospital stay may be required.
