Factors to Consider Prior to Female Sterilization via Tubal Ligation

When considering surgical sterilization, some of the primary factors to be considered include:

  • Health problems that might make a pregnancy unsafe
  • A desire for a permanent sterilization, thus avoiding needing to use temporary contraception methods
  • You do not desire to have additional children
