Occlusion of the fallopian tubes is a small minimally invasive operation performed during short hospitalisation, mostly during only one day. After a few days the patient may return back to her normal life.
This smart procedure is an economic and most reliable birth control solution.
Occlusion of the fallopian tubes is a simple operation, performed during one-day hospitalisation by means of laparoscopic techniques. The procedure is suitable for women, who do not wish to become pregnant any more. It is inconvenient for those who are still unsure about their decision not to have any more babies or did not give birth yet. The procedure does not remove the ovaries, the fallopian tubes are occluded. No hormonal changes take place in the woman’s body, period is preserved as well as the cycle of menstruation.
How does this method work? (the mechanism)
Closing and occlusion of fallopian tubes blocks the transport of the egg to the uterus and thus also the possibility of its fertilisation. The fallopian tubes can be closed either with special clamps or occluded by the effect of heat and severed.
Very efficient and reliable birth control method. The woman does not have to think about contraception any more. Single, relatively easy operation with minimum of complications, which is performed during one-day hospitalisation or also on an outpatient basis. It requires only a short time off work. The woman does not need to take any more birth control hormones - that means the method is suitable also for patients who are afraid of hormonal preparations or cannot use them (due to Leiden mutation, conditions following thrombosis, breast cancer, varicose veins, intolerance of preparations).
Necessity of general anaesthesia for approximately 20-30 minutes and short hospitalisation at our ward (usually until the next day).
