Tubal ligation is a surgical treatment that stops a woman from becoming pregnant. It’s usually referred to as “tying your tubes.” It is also known as female sterilization.
The fallopian tubes are referred to as tubal. Every month, an egg is released from an ovary and goes to the uterus via the fallopian tube. The term ‘ligation’ refers to the act of trying something together. To prevent pregnancy, this inhibits the egg and male sperm from joining.
Both fallopian tubes are blocked or severed during this procedure. The procedure is usually performed in a hospital or an outpatient surgical facility. The majority of the time, you will be able to go home the same day as your operation. This procedure can be performed under general anesthesia, local anesthesia, or spinal anesthesia.
You will continue to have periods and intercourse normally after the operation. In fact, because they are not concerned about an unexpected pregnancy, women may feel more at peace.
Tubal ligation is a method of birth control that is permanent. Only approximately 50 percent to 80 percent of women are able to become pregnant after having their fallopian tubes reattached, despite the fact that it can be reversed with another operation.
