How Tubal Ligation be performed in women??
Connecting cords in women (in a word connecting tubes to the uterus) can be with minilaparotomy or laporscopy methods. Sometimes during caesarean section surgery, tubes can be connected bilaterally (bilateral tubal ligation, tubal sterilization).
I. Connecting cords (tubes) with minilaparotomy
In the method called “minilaparotomy”, it connects the cords by reaching the cords with a horizontal incision of 3-5 cm from the groin. There are several different types of bindings.
Minilaparotomy is not particularly suitable for over-70 kg overweight women, those who have previously undergone surgery, intra-western adhesions or endometriosus history.

The other method in tubal sterilization is the process of connecting the cords bilaterally by entering from the belly with “laparoscopy”. This method, also known as “bloodless surgery” among the public, has less postoperative pain and often does not require hospitalization. The disadvantage according to minilaparotomy is that the process is expensive.
In both methods, the process of connecting the tubes (Tube ligation) can be performed immediately after birth or during caesarean section. If not done immediately after birth, it can be applied after 40 days of lohusalık period.
Effectiveness in both methods is close to 100%. At a very small percent, the possibility of reopening tubes and pregnancy should be kept in mind. The operation technique is associated with the success rate.
