What should I know about Tubal Ligation (the operation for the woman)?

A tubal ligation is a slightly more difficult operation than a vasectomy, but it is still very safe. It takes about 30 minutes.

A trained health worker inserts a tool through the skin near the belly button to cut or tie the tubes that carry the eggs to the womb. It does not change a woman’s monthly bleeding or her ability to have sex and sexual pleasure.
