What is Female Sterilisation?

Female sterilisation is a permanent method of contraception where an expert consultant gynaecologist will cut, tie or block your fallopian tubes, meaning that sperm won’t be able to reach the egg and fertilise it. During the procedure, the tubes are permanently blocked with clips or rings, which is known as a ‘tubal occlusion’. Alternatively, the tubes can be cut and then stitched which is called ‘tubal ligation’. Cutting and stitching the tubes makes it more difficult to reverse the sterilisation should you change your mind in the future, as the procedure destroys around 4cm of a tube, making it more difficult to reconnect the tube at a later date.

What happens during the operation?

Female sterilisation is usually performed during a laparoscopy which is a type of ‘keyhole’ surgery. So the surgeon can access your fallopian tubes, they will make a small incision in your abdomen, usually near the belly button, and insert a tube-like telescope called a laparoscope. The surgeon will make other small incisions into the abdomen to pass through the instruments needed to close or cut the fallopian tubes.

The operation usually takes around 30 minutes and is performed under general anaesthetic so you should be able to go home the same day.

What happens after the operation?

To see if the procedure has been successful, you may be asked to have a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) test or a laparoscopic dye test – both tests involve passing dye through the fallopian tubes to check that they are not open. It’s advisable to continue with your regular contraception until your next period after your sterilisation.

Sterilisation is generally very effective but there is still a small chance (around 1 in 200) of becoming pregnant each month after the procedure.

What is Hysterosalpingo-Contrast-Sonography?

Hysterosalpingo-contrast-sonography (usually shortened to HyCoSy) is a simple ultrasound procedure used to examine the fallopian tubes, as well as detect any problems of the uterus and endometrium. The test requires the use of a contrast fluid to visualise the fallopian tubes. Some women will require the use of a non-iodinated contrast agent called ExEm Foam. The HyCoSy procedure is a safe and reliable alternative to the conventional hysterosalpingogram (HSG) which uses X-rays. No radiation or iodinated contrast material is used for a HyCoSy test.

Why would I need a HyCoSy test?

Occluded (blocked) fallopian tubes are a common cause of infertility. Tubal occlusion can occur with a number of conditions including previous pelvic infection, severe endometriosis, previous appendicitis and pelvic adhesions. Many women will be unaware that these conditions are present and that tubal blockage has occurred.

A normal fallopian tube is not seen with regular ultrasound.

Even if the fallopian tube is blocked, it may still be difficult to see on regular ultrasound unless it is also filled with fluid (forming what is known as a hydrosalpinx). This is why a special test using a contrast agent such as ExEm Foam is useful, as it helps the doctor to visualise the fallopian tubes and assess whether they are patent (working).

What is a private hysteroscopy screen?

Pall Mall Medical offers a private hysteroscopy screening to help diagnose the cause of heavy menstrual bleeding (heavy periods) or gynaecological issues such as recurrent miscarriages, unusual bleeding or discharge. These issues can seriously affect quality of life, both physically and emotionally. This advanced diagnostic test takes place within the comfort of our CQC-certified private patient facilities combined with the gold standard of care from our highly experienced private Consultant Gynaecologists. The Hysteroscopy screening is an advanced technique that uses a narrow telescope with a light and camera at the end to examine the inside of the womb, passed through the vagina. Around a quarter of women are affected by heavy bleeding and 1 in 20 women aged between 30-49 in the UK need to visit their GP due to heavy menstrual bleeding. A hysteroscopy is now recommended under NICE guidelines as the first-line test for women experiencing these issues, instead of having a pelvic ultrasound scan which gives a less accurate diagnosis. The screening should help ensure women with underlying conditions such as fibroids and polyps, endometrial diseases or other gynaecological conditions are more effectively diagnosed. It can also be used to help find the cause of infertility.

What happens during a hysteroscopy?

In many ways, a hysteroscopy is similar to a smear test in that you will be asked to lie down and place your feet in stirrups before your doctor uses a speculum to open your cervix.

The doctor will then clean the area with antiseptic before passing the hysteroscope up into the womb. Once in place, the tiny hysteroscope camera will take pictures of the womb which the doctor will be able to view on a TV screen and use these to make a diagnosis. There are very few side effects to this procedure; in both the diagnostic and operational procedures, gas is passed into the womb to inflate the area so the doctor can see more clearly.

This can sometimes cause cramping which should last no longer than a couple of hours. In operational procedures, there may be some light bleeding after the surgery and you will need to leave some time to recover from the effects of the general anaesthetic.

A consultation with a consultant who performs this procedure is required in the first instance, who will then arrange the procedure at one of our locations.

What happens after the operation?

To see if the procedure has been successful, you may be asked to have a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) test or a laparoscopic dye test – both tests involve passing dye through the fallopian tubes to check that they are not open. It’s advisable to continue with your regular contraception until your next period after your sterilisation.

Sterilisation is generally very effective but there is still a small chance (around 1 in 200) of becoming pregnant each month after the procedure.
