Empowering Women’s Health: Tubal Ligation at ILS Hospitals

Dear Women, as we continue our journey in fostering women’s well-being, let’s explore the transformative procedure of Tubal Ligation – a significant gynaecological service provided with expertise and compassion at ILS Hospitals.

Understanding Tubal Ligation:

Tubal Ligation, commonly known as “getting your tubes tied,” is a surgical procedure designed for permanent female sterilization. This procedure involves blocking or sealing the fallopian tubes, preventing the eggs from reaching the uterus and, consequently, inhibiting fertilization. Tubal ligation is a highly effective method of contraception, offering a permanent solution for women who have decided not to have more children.

Indications for Tubal Ligation:

  • Family Planning: Women who have completed their desired family size and wish to ensure permanent contraception often choose tubal ligation.
  • Medical Reasons: In certain cases, tubal ligation may be recommended for medical reasons, such as preventing the transmission of genetic disorders that could be passed to offspring.
  • Health Considerations: For women with certain health conditions, a healthcare provider may advise tubal ligation as a suitable contraceptive option.

The Tubal Ligation Procedure:

  • Preoperative Evaluation: Before the procedure, a comprehensive evaluation is conducted, including a discussion of the patient’s medical history, overall health, and contraceptive goals.
  • Anaesthesia: Tubal ligation is typically performed under general anaesthesia to ensure that the patient is comfortable and pain-free during the procedure.
  • Surgical Approaches: There are different techniques for performing tubal ligation:
  • Laparoscopic Tubal Ligation: This minimally invasive approach involves making small incisions in the abdomen through which a laparoscope and specialized instruments are inserted.
  • Postpartum Tubal Ligation: Tubal ligation can be performed shortly after childbirth, often during a caesarean section.
  • Mini-Laparotomy: A small incision is made near the navel, allowing the surgeon to access and block the fallopian tubes.
  • Tubal Occlusion: The fallopian tubes are either blocked, sealed, or cut to prevent the passage of eggs.
  • Closure: After tubal occlusion, the incisions are closed using sutures or surgical staples.
  • Recovery: Recovery time varies based on the technique used. Patients are typically monitored in the hospital for a few hours to ensure proper recovery from anaesthesia.

Benefits of Tubal Ligation:

  • Permanent Contraception: Tubal ligation provides a permanent solution for women who no longer wish to conceive.
  • Highly Effective: Tubal ligation is one of the most effective forms of contraception, with a low failure rate.
  • Hormone-Free: Unlike some other forms of contraception, tubal ligation does not involve hormones, making it suitable for women who may have contraindications to hormonal methods.
  • Quick Procedure: The surgery is typically completed within a short timeframe, minimizing the time spent in the operating room.
