Tubal Sterilization (cont.)

Tubal Ligation Recovery and Results
Most women recover from the laparoscopic procedure with no problems. There are no tests required to confirm that the woman is now sterile (that is, unable to become pregnant) after a laparoscopic procedure.
During the first 3 months after the Essure or Adiana procedure, the patient must use another form of birth control. At the 3-month point, the patient must undergo a final X-ray procedure in which dye is placed in the uterus and an X-ray is taken to confirm that the device is in place.
