    Tubal ligation (or having one's tubes tied) is a permanent form of contraception. Transabdominal sterilization, a type of tubal ligation, is surgery that closes off a woman's fallopian tubes. Once the tubes are sealed, sperm will not be able to fertilize an egg, so pregnancy can't take place. There are several methods by which this can be achieved.

    A woman's health may determine which procedure is best to use; two factors to consider include a woman's body weight and if she has had previous surgery.

    Laparoscopic sterilization is one of the two most common methods of sterilization. Typically, you will be given general or regional anesthesia. Your surgeon will make a small incision, about half an inch long, in or bellow the belly button. A harmless carbon dioxide gas is injected into the abdomen, elevating the abdominal wall off of the pelvic organs and allowing your surgeon to get an unobstructed view as well as room to operate. Next, a laparoscope (a small, telescope-like instrument with a light) is inserted through the incision to view the tubes.

    The surgeon then inserts a smaller device used to move, hold, and close off the fallopian tubes. This device could be inserted either through the laparoscope or through a second, tiny cut made just above the pubic hairline. The surgeon closes the fallopian tubes by using rings, clamps, clips, or by sealing them shut with an electric current (electrocautery). The laparoscope is withdrawn, and the surgeon will then suture the incision(s) closed.

    A tubal laparoscopy procedure takes about 30 minutes. There is minimal scarring, and most women can go home the same day as the procedure.

    Mini-laparotomy is the other most common method of sterilization. Most women opt to have this procedure done right after giving birth. For a mini-laparotomy (or "mini-lap"), gas and a laparoscope are not used. General or regional anesthesia is administered, then the surgeon makes a small incision at or above the pubic hairline. She then pulls the fallopian tubes up into or out of the incision, closes them off with a device that ties and cuts them (or seals them shut), puts the tubes back into place, and stitches the incision shut.

    Women generally recover in a few days.

    Mini-laparotomy is usually the tubal ligation option of choice for those who just went through childbirth. If this procedure is done within 48 hours of delivery, the incision is made below the belly button (instead of at the pubic bone) because the fallopian tubes are higher in the abdomen right after pregnancy.

    Many surgeons prefer to perform a tubal ligation shortly after childbirth because you are already in the hospital, the abdominal wall is relaxed, and pregnancy has pushed the top of your uterus near your belly button (where the incision needs to be made). This allows for easier access to the fallopian tubes.

    A laparotomy procedure (open tubal ligation) is considered to be major surgery, so it is less commonly used than laparoscopy and mini-laparotomy. This procedure requires general or regional anesthesia. Your surgeon will make a larger incision (2 to 5 inches) in the abdomen. The fallopian tubes will then be pulled up into or out of the incision, closed off (tied, clipped, or sealed shut) with a device, and put back into place. The incision will be stitched shut.

    A woman may need to be hospitalized for 2 to 4 days, and it could take several weeks to fully recover. If the procedure is done after delivery, a woman's hospital stay may be extended by 1 or 2 days.

    An open tubal ligation is usually performed right before or after some other type of unrelated abdominal surgery, such as a Cesarean section. If you are having a c-section delivery, your surgeon can perform the laparotomy in just a few extra minutes while you are still under anesthesia and your abdomen is still open.

    In addition to having abdominal surgery for other reasons, an open tubal ligation may be recommended if you have or have had pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), endometriosis, or previous abdominal or pelvic surgery. These conditions can often cause abdominal tissue and organs to scar or stick together (adhesion). A laparotomy tubal ligation may also be necessary if a woman:
    has had prior abdominal surgery
    is significantly overweight
    has had infections that have left adhesions or scar tissue in the abdomen
    has had certain medical or gynecological problems
    All of these conditions may make one of the other types of tubal ligation more difficult and risky.
