Tubal Ligation

Tubal Ligation

What is Tubal Ligation?

For women who no longer want children, sterilization by laparoscopy or hysteroscopy provides a safe and convenient form of contraception. Once completed, no further steps are needed to prevent pregnancy. 

Is it permanent?

Depending on the type of procedure performed, a tubal ligation reversal may be possible. This is done by reconnecting the “tied” segments back to the fallopian tubes.

Although a reversal may be possible, your chances of becoming pregnant will be decreased than before the initial tubal ligation procedure. 

Is the procedure 100% effective?

Your chances of becoming pregnant after a tubal ligation procedure is about 1%. However, your chances of an ectopic pregnancy increases. 

Will I have a menstrual cycle after the procedure?

Your menstrual cycle should remain the same with the possibility of a lighter and shorter period. A small amount of women experience irregular periods and cramping post-procedure.
