Greetings

The national average cost for bilateral tubal ligation is $3000.

There is a age limit of 35 by most doctors, but the most important consideration is the choice of NOT having any more children.

reversal of tubal ligation is very expensive so patients are asked to think about it and inform themeselves adequately before making the decision.

The cost (average in Michigan is $ 2500-3500). It can be done both by mini-laparotomy or laparoscopically

could you please elaborate on the age limit of 35 by most doctors. I am 36 years old. Does that mean I couldn't have it? Also, what are the possible side effects and statistics?
Doctor: The Physician, Doctor replied 7 years ago

Most doctor consider statistically and for health considerations that most women do not WANT to have more children after 35 years of Age.

Failure rate is 4 in 1000

700-750,000 done in US yearly

50% done immediate post partum

The most important side effect directly related to BTL are

Ectopic pregnancy (less than 0.2%)

Endometriosis (0.5%)

Increased menstrual bleeding and cramps (so called post tubal ligation syndrome) the statistics is not clear and most doctors doubt if all reported cases are due to BTL
