Women who want a more permanent form of birth control seek tubal ligations from Victorville-based gynecologist Dr. Wilburn of Genesis Women’s Health Services. They’re able to safely and affordably avoid future pregnancies without the ongoing cost and use of birth control pills or IUDs. Sterilization is meant to permanently prevent pregnancy and oftentimes cannot be reversed which is something that Dr. Wilburn discusses with her patients.
There are other forms of birth control that offer less permanency than tubal ligation. The male equivalent of tubal ligation is the vasectomy which carries fewer risks than female sterilization. Dr. Wilburn offers birth control pills, IUDs, Nexplanon, and Nuva Ring as additional options for women to choose from.
Knowing what form of birth control is right for you takes careful consideration. That’s what makes Dr. Wilburn the Victorville Tubal Ligations Expert. She informs her patients about the risks and rewards of choosing to have their “tubes tied” permanently.
- Rash, swelling, and trouble breathing.
- Pain in the stomach that is continuous in nature.
- Unusual discharge from the vagina that has an odd odor.
- A tendency to faint regularly.
- Bleeding or pus appearing at the incision site.
In very rare cases, women who undergo sterilization procedures become pregnant with what is known as an ectopic pregnancy. Extremely dangerous because the pregnancy develops in the fallopian tube, it’s important to seek medical help at a doctor’s office or the emergency room right away if irregular bleeding from the vagina occurs, there is severe pain in the stomach or shoulder or that you feel weak and experience fainting.
Even if you undergo a tubal ligation, it is recommended that you use condoms to prevent STDs and to reduce your risk of ectopic pregnancy. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. You can never be too protected.
