How do Falope rings work?

How do Falope rings work?

The tubal ring (also called the Falope ring, Yoon ring, or Lay loop) is a small silastic band placed around a loop of the fallopian tube. With this method of tubal ligation, a 2-3 cm segment of fallopian tube is drawn inside a narrow applicator. The silastic ring is then released onto the tubal loop.

Can tubal ligation be done laparoscopically?

Laparoscopy makes it possible to see and do the surgery through small incisions in the abdomen. For a laparoscopic tubal ligation, the surgeon makes two small cuts (incisions)—one in or just below the belly button (navel) and one lower on your abdomen.

What is clamping your tubes?

Tubal ligation — also known as having your tubes tied or tubal sterilization — is a type of permanent birth control. During tubal ligation, the fallopian tubes are cut, tied or blocked to permanently prevent pregnancy.

Where do the eggs go after tubal ligation?

A tubal ligation interrupts the fallopian tubes so that an egg does not have contact with sperm, and pregnancy cannot occur. You will still ovulate following tubal ligation, but the eggs will be absorbed by your body instead of traveling through the fallopian tubes and into the uterus.

Is tube tying reversible?

Tubal ligation is permanent birth control. Although it may be reversed by another operation, only about 50% to 80% of women are able to become pregnant after having their fallopian tubes reattached. This surgery doesn’t prevent sexually transmitted disease. You will still need to practice safe sex.
