Female Surgical Sterilization
Sterilization is a permanent, non-reversible procedure that can be considered if you are completed with child-bearing. The surgical options include bilateral tubal ligation, or occlusion and salpingectomy (removal of the tubes). These surgical options for women create a barrier that prevents the egg from joining with the sperm for fertilization.
A vasectomy is male sterilization and is an in-office minor procedure performed by a urologist. The procedure blocks the vas deferens, which over time, will remove sperm from the seminal fluid. This procedure requires a follow-up visit to confirm there are no more sperm present in the fluid.
