When a woman no longer wants to have children, she has the option to undergo a tubal ligation. Also know as ‘tube tying,’ the procedure permanently sterilizes a woman and prevents her from getting pregnant in the future. If you’ve reached a point in your life where you’ve had all the children you’ve wanted to have, Adelanto tubal ligations specialist Dr. Wilburn has a solution for you.
To be sure that the procedure is right for her patients, the OBGYN goes through a question and answer process before scheduling the procedure. This allows her to get to know her patients intimately and to assess whether they are a good candidate for tubal ligation. She then can suggest other forms of birth control in place of permanent sterilization.
There are some things you should know about tubal ligations before having the procedure done. The first is that it does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. You will want to continue to use condoms to protect yourself.
Next, it’s a permanent procedure with over 99% success. If you were to decide that you wanted to have a child later, you’d need to have the procedure reversed. You still may not be able to get pregnant as there will be scar tissue following a tubal ligation.
There will be pain and discomfort in the incision site and abdomen following the surgery. You may decide to have a tubal ligation after giving birth to your last child via vaginal birth or through C-Section. Having the procedure done at that time makes it, so you’re able to cut your healing time in half because you won’t have two surgeries done.
To schedule a time to meet with Dr. Wilburn requires you to call Genesis Women’s Health Services to set up an appointment. You’ll be greeted by a friendly staff member on the phone who will give you an idea what times and dates are open for appointments. Based on your schedule, you can then determine when to see the Adelanto Tubal Ligations Specialist Dr. Wilburn.
