Tubal ligation is a procedure in which a surgeon tied the fallopian tubes to prevent pregnancy. This is a permanent procedure, after which the woman can no longer get pregnant. After tubal ligation surgery the egg cannot reach the uterus and the sperm cannot reach the egg. Tubal ligation is also called tubal sterilization or "tubes tied."

The most common types of tubal ligation:

Types of Tubal Ligation and Reversal Surgery {Part 2}

Laparoscopy: A laparoscopy is a type of surgical procedure that allows a surgeon to get access the inside of the abdomen and pelvis without having to make large incisions in the skin. During the laparoscopy procedure, the surgeon makes one or two incisions around the umbilicus (belly button) and enters the stomach surgical instrument called a laparoscope. The surgeon uses instruments to block the fallopian tubes, using either cautery device (burning), or small clamps.

Mini-laparotomy: This procedure performed through an incision measuring less than 5 cm. This type of tubal ligation is also called a mini-lap. In this procedure a surgeon makes a small incision at or above the pubic hairline. The fallopian tubes pulled up into or out of the incision, tied off, and then put back into place.
Postpartum tubal ligation: This procedure done after delivery of a baby.In this procedure a surgeon removes a large portion of the fallopian tubes to prevent pregnancy.

Essure procedure: Essure is a proven, non-surgical, hormone-free permanent birth control procedure that works with your body to prevent pregnancy. In this procedure a surgeon insert a flexible micro-insert inside the fallopian tubes without any incision. These micro-inserts inserted through the vagina and the cervix. Over the next three months, body tissue covers the implant and blocks the fallopian tubes. During these three months you must continue to use birth control pills.
