Tubal ligation, also known as “getting your tubes tied”, is a type of female sterilization. Tying the fallopian tubes keeps eggs from traveling from the ovaries to the uterus, therefore preventing pregnancy. A tubal ligation can be done in a hospital or at an outpatient surgical clinic.
Tubal ligation and tubal implants are close to 100% effective against pregnancy. There is only a slight risk of becoming pregnant afterwards, which can rarely occur if tubes grow back together.
