Sterilization is an important decision. If you are finished having children, or know for certain that you do not, and will not, desire any future pregnancies, a tubal ligation is a safe and effective means of achieving this goal.
Although there is a very slight chance of pregnancy after this procedure, a laparoscopic tubal ligation is a highly effective surgical means of birth control. It is intended to be a permanent, irreversible procedure. As with all surgical procedures, there are risks and complications. However this procedure is quite safe and the failure rate is low.
Now that you have viewed the presentation, it is your doctor's hope that you have a better understanding of the procedure, including its risks, benefits and alternatives. Based on what you want and expect, you and your doctor can now make a shared decision about your health care.
