Thinking of Getting Your Tubes Tied


A Form Of Permanent Contraception

Having sex can be a lot of fun, but it does have one serious long-term side effect, getting pregnant and having children. There are methods of contraception present for use by both males and females but the biggest disadvantage of them is that they are temporary and have been known to fail in certain cases. For example, males have had their condoms torn apart and females have had to go through unwanted pregnancies because their intrauterine devices failed to stop the semen to the reach the inner vagina. That is why permanent methods of contraception were needed, which came forward in the shape of vasectomy for men and having Tubes Tied for women.

Tubal ligation is the proper medical name that is given to having your Tubes Tied. It is exercised in women and is a method that results in permanent contraception, which means that a woman will not be able to get pregnant ever again, which is why it should be given proper thought before it is exercised, since normal tubal ligation methods are irreversible. We now look at the process of how it is practiced.

The female uterus consists of an area layered with reproductive tissue, to which two separate tubes lead, one from the right and the other from the left. These tubes, known as the fallopian tubes, lead to two separate ovaries, whose job is to produces human egg cells, which may then be fertilized by the male sperms in order to form a zygote.

The egg doesn’t get fertilized in the ovary, but is brought to the vagina via the fallopian tubes. If the fallopian tubes are tied, then the eggs would not be able to reach the vagina and thus fertilization would not take place, which is why this procedure is generally known as having Tubes Tied.

With the advancement of medical science, there are now many methods of having Tubes Tied, one of which is laparoscopy. This involves having a small cut on the abdomen to insert a small telescope, which is known as the laparoscope.

The incision is then stitched up. The result is minimal scarring and the procedure is so safe that a woman can be discharged on the same day of operation.

Another procedure for having Tubes Tied is called mini-laparotomy. Most women opt for this method after they have given birth to children. The surgeon makes a small cut, take the fallopian tubes out, seals it shut and puts it back into place.

The cut is then stitched off. Remember that these procedures must be performed before or quite some time after a woman has any major abdominal surgery. It has also been observed that these methods are far suitable in women who are within a certain weight range, as obese women have had problems with open tubal ligation.
