Tubal Ligation

Commonly referred to as getting your tubes tied, tubectomy or tubal ligation is a form of permanent birth control. It is a surgical sterilisation procedure that prevents the female from getting pregnant by ligating off the fallopian tubes.

How does tubal ligation work?

Every month, the ovaries release an egg that reaches the uterus through the fallopian tubes and meets the sperms. Tubal ligation is a surgical procedure in which the fallopian tubes are either tied, blocked or cut off, preventing the egg from meeting the sperm. This procedure does not affect your menstrual cycle but prevents the egg from travelling through the tubes from the ovaries and blocks the sperms from travelling up the tubes to meet the egg, thus preventing fertilisation.

If you are undergoing the surgery soon after a C-section, the same incision is used to complete the procedure. In case of vaginal delivery or a general outpatient procedure, tubal ligation is carried out through a laparoscopic surgery where a small incision made on the abdominal wall to tie off the fallopian tubes.

What are the benefits?

Tubal ligation is a very common surgical procedure that sterilises the woman and permanently prevents pregnancy. Many women get it done soon after they deliver or combine it with another abdominal surgery. It is important to remember that:

  • The effects are permanent and cannot be reversed.
  • Tube removal lowers the risk of ovarian cancer.
  • No form of birth control is needed after the procedure.
  • It however, does not prevent you from STD.


A tubectomy is a simple surgery and does not require a long hospital stay and is best to get done immediately after childbirth. Minor discomfort after the surgery is common like cramping, pain and bloating which will subside after a few days. However, in case of severe pain or bleeding from the incision site, consult your gynaecologist immediately.

At Motherhood, we have a team of experienced gynaecologists and skilled laparoscopic surgeons to help women make informed decisions and get successful treatment. We are equipped with trained staff and all modern facilities to cater to all needs and our surgeons have many years of experience and have performed several successful tubal ligations.
