Tubal Ligation

Discreet, never have to think about it once done


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.

How To Use

  • This is surgery.
  • You will need general anesthesia.

Side Effects

  • Pain
  • Bleeding
  • Infection or other complications after surgery
