How It Works
Tubal ligation is a permanent type of birth control known as “getting your tubes tied” through surgery.
Every month, a woman’s body releases an egg. That egg waits in her fallopian tube to be fertilized by a male sperm. When a woman has her “tubes tied” it stops an egg from entering the fallopian tube. This means fertilization by a sperm and pregnancy is no longer possible.
Possible Side Effects of Tubal Ligation:
*Damaged bowel, bladder, or major blood vessels
*Reaction to anesthesia
*Pelvic or abdominal pain and/or cramping
* Gassiness or bloating
* Shoulder pain
