Information about Tubal Ligation

Tubal ligation (or tubal sterilization) is a surgical procedure to prevent pregnancy by tying, sealing, or attaching a clip to a woman's fallopian tubes. This prevents the egg from traveling from the ovaries to the uterus to be fertilized and implanted. This is a relatively minor surgical procedure and can be done on an outpatient basis. It may also be called "band-aid" surgery because the only scar is easily covered by a band-aid.

Tubal ligation is the most common method of birth control and over 6,000,000 women choose to "have their tubes tied" each year.

A tubal ligation should be considered permanent, as reversal is costly.

Most insurance will cover the procedure, and many State Health Departments can provide this procedure for low income women without insurance. There are also some women's clinics that offer this procedure at a reasonable fee for women without insurance.

Information about Tubal Ligation Reversal

About 10% of the women who choose Tubal Ligation later regret their decision, and many opt for a surgical procedure to reattach the turbes so that a pregnancy may be possible.

The younger a woman is when she chooses Tubal Ligation, the more likely she is to change her mind and want to have the procedure reversed.

Reversal is a micro-surgical process and is very costly.
