Tubal ligation is where the fallopian tubes also can be sealed using an instrument with an electrical current. They also can be closed with clips, clamps, or rings.
- The fallopian tubes are blocked so the egg and sperm can’t meet in the fallopian tube. This stops you from getting pregnant.
- It is supposed to be permanent.
- Sometimes it is possible to reverse the sterilization. Reversal involves another surgery that might not work.
