Introduction to Tubal Ligation

This safe surgical procedure is popular among women who have finished having kids and are seeking a permanent birth control solution.

Women’s Clinic of Johnson County offers a variety of birth control methods to our patients. Some women opt for tubal ligation, a permanent method of sterilization. This is a surgery that blocks (or removes) the fallopian tubes to prevent eggs from being fertilized. Tubal ligation has proven to be over 99% effective; however, the majority of the time, it is not reversible. It’s also important to note that tubal ligation does not protect you against STDs.
