Complications

Complications due to anesthesia and surgery can occur during tubal sterilization


One must remember that rarely women have become pregnant after tubal ligation. It is estimated that about 1 in 200 women have had pregnancy after their tubes are ligated. This may be caused by an incomplete closure of the tubes.

Complications due to anesthesia are rare and include:

► Reactions to Anesthetic medications

► Breathing difficulties

Complications of surgery are rare, however these include -

Bleeding

Infection

Damage to the bladder

Puncture (perforation) of the uterus

Laceration (tear) of the cervix.

Perforation of the fallopian tube.

Perforation of major vessels - laparoscopy

Cardiac arrhythmias due to CO2 - laparoscopy

If pregnancy occurs after the procedure, there is an increased risk for an ectopic pregnancy in which the pregnancy develops in the fallopian tubes.
