How it Works

• An operation is done where the fallopian tubes (where fertilisation occurs and what carries the egg to the uterus) are cut, sealed or blocked
• The sperm therefore cannot reach an egg


• High success rate - only 1 in 200 procedures fail
• Does not affect sex
• Periods are unaffected


• There are risks associated with surgery (although risks of serious complications are low)
• Small increased risk of ectopic pregnancy if the procedure fails
• Need time to recover after the procedure and there may be some pain temporarily after the procedure
