Tubal ligation or tubectomy is a method of female sterilization. In this method of sterilization, the Fallopian tubes, which carry eggs from your ovaries are blocked by sealing, clamping, or severing them. This type of tubectomy can be carried out through a laparoscopic procedure, mini-laparotomy, or tubal implants. Please note that your menstrual cycle remains unaffected from this procedure. You can consider Tubectomy for the following reasons-
Laparoscopic procedure for Tubectomy: A few small cuts will be made near your belly button through which your Gynaecologist will insert a laparoscope to visualize your Fallopian tubes. Once located, the tubes will be closed off and the procedure is completed. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes.
Mini-laparotomy procedure for Tubectomy: Your Gynaecologist will make a cut near the belly button. The Fallopian tubes are brought closer through this cut and clips are used to block them, and in some instances, a section of the tubes is cut off.
Tubal Implants procedure for Tubectomy: There is no requirement of anaesthesia in this method of tubectomy. Your Gynaecologist will dilate your cervix before the procedure and pass a thin catheter through your vagina and cervix up to one of the Fallopian tubes. This catheter will be responsible for placing an implant in the tube and then repeating the process with the other tube. X-rays will be taken after the procedure to ensure the right positioning of the implants.
The possible tubal ligation/tubectomy complications include:
You may need to avoid sexual intercourse for a week to ensure proper healing
Fallopian Tubes: Tubes through which an egg travels from the ovary to the uterus.Learn Less
