There are many methods to control births, but among the most reliable and durable (or permanent) are two surgical techniques par excellence: vasectomy for men and tubal ligation for women.
However, many couples who decide to opt for this method regret later because they want to have a child. What happens in these cases? Is the operation back?
Is tubal ligation reversible?
Tubal ligation is a method of sterilization of the woman that consists of a surgical operation in which the connection between the fallopian tubes and the uterus is interrupted. It is indicated to all those women who want a method of contraception. Tubal ligation is also indicated for women for whom a pregnancy poses too high a medical risk.
Tubal ligation is considered a irreversible contra contraception technique, althoughmay be reversible by another tubal union surgery or pregnancy can be achieved by in vitro fertilization techniques. The right woman to receive the tubal ligation must have made the decision for herself, without external constraints, and knowing other contraceptive options. There are certain situations in which a tubal ligation
may not be advisable , such as serious cardiopulmonary diseases, very obese women, pelvic infection, pregnant women, puerperal women ....The
tubal ligation surgery is simpler than other surgical procedures. In essence it consists in interrupting the fallopian tube so that the ova from the ovary can not reach the uterus, and, on the other hand, the sperm can not reach from the inside of the uterus to the ovary. To achieve it there are different techniques. And is vasectomy reversible?
involves cutting and ligating the vas deferens that connect the testicles to the penis. As a result, in a short time the ejaculated semen does not contain sperm. Vasectomy is a very effective procedure to prevent pregnancy. The failure rate does not exceed 0.5 percent.
After the operation there are still stored sperm, so another method of contraception should be used until the spermiogram reveals that the sperm count is equal to zero. This procedure does not affect the erection or the libido, since it does not affect the irrigation of the penis (responsible for the erection) or affect the hormones that intervene in sexual desire.
The testicles continue to produce sperm, but having no outlet, they are absorbed by the body. The prostate and the seminal vesicles continue to produce the same fluid, therefore,
the semen that is expelled looks the same, but without sperm and without risk of pregnancy. Every year, 500,000 vasectomies are performed in U.S.A. Vasectomy
can be reversed by microsurgery. This technique is called vasovasostomy; However, vasectomy reversal is not possible in one hundred percent of the cases and if you have doubts about wanting more children, it is not recommended.Sara Cañamero de León
