I had a tubal ligation during my cesarean, but got MRSA three days after surgery. Could this have caused tubal ligation failure? No doctor will answer

More Information: Where was the mrsa? What do you mean no doctor will answer. Your surgeon has to answer you. Have you asked your surgeon? You are their patient. You have rights.

Can an X-ray show if your tubal ligation was a success or failure?

No: A plain x-ray will only show the presence of the 2 metallic clips placed (presumably) on the tube. The only x-ray study that could prove that the tubes are blocked by the ligation clips is a Hysterosalpingogram (HSG). A tiny catheter is placed in the uterine cavity and contrast (dye) is injected to show that the contrast stops at the clips and doesn't go beyond that point. ...Read more

How good is a tubal ligation?

Depends: It depends on the type of tubal ligation. If you had your tubes cut and tied at the time of a cesarean delivery, it fails about 1 time in 400.

Different type of tubal ligation?

Clipping vs scarring: There are two ways of doing this. The first, more traditional, is to surgically clip the tubes, tying each end so fertilization cannot occur. A newer way is to insert a coil (example: essure) that causes the tube to constrict and scar down, no longer allowing passage of sperm upward, or eggs downward. This is usually performed without surgery so it can be less expensive and faster recovery. ...Read more

What is getting a tubal ligation like?

Depends: Is it being done at the time of a c-section or just the tubal? If done at the time of c-section, you won't even know you had it. If as a stand-alone surgery, you will have pain from the incision(s) but it resolves very quickly. Your obgyn should be able to give you specific details of how he/she does it. Good luck. ...Read more
