Tubal ligation is generally done with the help of laparoscopic surgery. This surgery process involves making a small opening just underneath your navel and inserting small, thin instruments all the way through a tiny tube to carry out the surgery. It is usually an outpatient procedure. This operation just requires a stay in the hospital for a night and complete rest for a week. Regular activities that are performed by the woman can be done regularly after a week. This process of tubal ligation includes having a small coil that is situated into your fallopian tubes, which in turn creates some kind of barrier. Therefore, this process of tubal ligation is mostly considered just as lasting a way out as surgical sterilization.
