Tubal Ligation

What is a laparoscopy for tubal ligation?

A laparoscopy for tubal ligation is a procedure in which your health care provider closes a woman’s fallopian tubes to prevent pregnancy. It is a type of sterilization for women. The fallopian tubes carry eggs to the uterus. Your provider uses a laparoscope (a thin tube with a light and tiny camera) to see the fallopian tubes. Your provider uses another thing tube with a tool for closing the tubes. This prevents pregnancy because it stops sperm from reaching and fertilizing eggs.
