Tubal ligation and tubal reversal information and locations in Mexico

Also known as female sterilization, tubal ligation is a form of surgical birth control that consists of blocking or cutting the fallopian tubes in order to prevent pregnancy.
Tubal ligation is a permanent way of preventing pregnancy, in which the gynecologist blocks or cuts the fallopian tubes so the egg cell that travels from the ovaries can’t reach the uterus, thereby the sperm can’t reach and fertilize the egg.

There are two types of tubal ligation:

Minilaparotomy
With this method, a small incision is made in the lower abdomen. Then, a portion of the fallopian tubes is removed or a clip is placed to seal the tubes.
Laparoscopy
The gynecologist makes one or more small incisions near the belly button. Then, introduces a laparoscope and the instruments used to cut or tie the tubes.
