Sterilization : The tubes are ducts that extend from near the ovary and go into the uterus. The egg moves don the tube and get fertilized in the lower 1/3 of the tube. Ligation is the slicing of the tube often the tube is coagulated and clipped as well. By interrupting this tube the path of the egg to the uterus is blocked making pregnancy improbable.
