FAMILY PLANNING SURGERY - TUBAL LIGATION

Tubal ligation or tubal sterilization is a type of permanent birth control. 

WHAT IS DONE. 
During tubal ligation the fallopian tubes are cut, blocked or removed. This blocks the path of the egg which travels from the ovaries to meet the sperm. 

 Tubal Ligation

WHY IS IT DONE. 
  • Female sterilization is one of the most common procedures as a method of permanent family planning. 
  • It does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • It may decrease the chance of ovarian cancer, more so if the fallopian tubes are removed. 

WHEN IS IT DONE. 
  • Following a normal vaginal delivery. 
  • During a C-section 
  • Anytime - also called an ‘Internal T.L.’
  • Can be done along with a MTP. 

HOW IS IT DONE. 

In RASHMI HOSPITAL, except during a C-section we perform a Tubal ligation through minimally invasive technique. 
  • We perform a laparoscopic T.L. 
  • It is done as a day care procedure under general anaesthesia. You can go home in a few hours. 
  • Complications are rare. 

 Tubal Ligation

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT 
  • It is a permanent birth control method. 
  • Tubal Ligation reversal can be attempted but the surgery is long and not always successful. 
  • Rarely the procedure can fail. When the procedure fails there is a risk of an ectopic pregnancy. This requires immediate treatment.
