Laparoscopic Tubal Ligation Aftercare

It is a type of permanent birth control and is also called as tubal sterilisation. It blocks the egg in ovaries from travelling through the fallopian tubes and also blocks sperms from travelling up the fallopian tubes to the egg.
It can be done at any time after childbirth or with abdominal surgery such as a C-section. This procedure may also decrease your risk of ovarian cancer, especially if the fallopian tubes are removed. This procedure cannot be reversed.

Before the procedure

Before the procedure, your doctor may ask you to take a pregnancy test to make sure you are not pregnant.

During the procedure

In an outpatient procedure, either a needle is inserted or an incision is made through your abdomen so your abdomen can be inflated with gas (carbon dioxide or nitrous oxide). Then, a laparoscope is inserted into your abdomen. The doctor will make a small incision to insert instruments through the abdominal wall.

In a tubal ligation after vaginal childbirth, a small incision under the belly button is made which provide easy access to your uterus and fallopian tubes.

After the procedure

The gas is removed when the procedure is done and you will be allowed to go home after a few hours of the procedure. You’ll have some discomfort at the incision site like cramping, fatigue, dizziness, bloating and shoulder pain.


You may have pain in the abdomen for a few days after surgery and may also have a swollen belly or change in the bowels for a few days. You may also have shoulder or back pain because of the gas. After surgery, avoid lifting anything for around one week and wait to have sex until it feels comfortable.

At Home Recovery

  • Rest when you feel tired
  • Be active
  • Don’t move quickly or lift anything heavy for few weeks.
  • Don’t swim or take a bath for the first two weeks. You may shower but pat the incision dry.
  • You can ask your doctor when it is okay for you to have sex.


  • You can eat a normal diet but if your stomach is upset then eat bland, low-fat foods like plain rice, broiled chicken, toast, and yogurt.
  • Have plenty of fruits and drink plenty of water to avoid constipation and straining.

Incision care

  • Leave the tape on which you have on the cut for a week or until it falls off.
  • Wash the incision area daily with warm, soapy water and pat it dry. Avoid hydrogen peroxide or alcohol.
  • Keep the area clean and dry.
  • Change the bandage every day.
