Female Sterilisation is one of the services that we are able to offer at Kingsbridge Private Hospital


3fivetwo Group


Female sterilisation is a contraception method chosen by many women after they have had children and wish to have a healthy sex life with their partner without the risk of pregnancy. 

This prevents the woman’s eggs from reaching sperm and becoming fertilised. Eggs will still be released from the ovaries as normal, but they will be absorbed naturally into the woman's body. 

After your surgery it is recommended that you continue to use contraception until an imaging test has confirmed that your fallopian tubes are blocked. 

These treatments will be explained to you fully at your consultation. 


Facts you should know about female sterilisation


  • In most cases, female sterilisation is more than 99% effective, and only one woman in 200 will become pregnant in her lifetime after having it done.
  • You don't have to think about it every day, or every time you have sex, so it doesn't interrupt or affect your sex life.
  • Sterilisation can be performed at any time during the menstrual cycle. It does not affect hormone levels.
  • Periods with continue after being sterilised.
  • It is recommended that you use contraception until the operation is done and until your next period or for three months afterwards (depending on the type of sterilisation).
  • As with any surgery, there's a small risk of complications. These include internal bleeding, infection or damage to other organs.
  • There's a small risk that the operation won't work. Blocked tubes can rejoin immediately or years later.
  • If the operation fails, this may increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy (when a fertilised egg implants outside the womb, usually in a fallopian tube).
  • Sterilisation can be difficult to reverse.
  • Female sterilisation doesn't protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). For this reason it may not be a suitable contraception option for many women.

Patient Testimonials

"Amazing 5-star hospital.  Have had other surgery here before on my back.
Yesterday's was a neck disc replacement operation.  I would highly recommend this hospital like a hotel manner. Thanks again guys." Mr Phillips, Kingsbridge Patient
"As hospitals go this one is pretty amazing! Had surgery with Mr Molloy at the end of October and have another one the end of this month. Mr Molloy is a gentleman who puts you at ease right away and ensured my last procedure went smoothly! From start to finish all the hospital staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The facilities are brilliant with the rooms spacious and modern to recover in. Keep up the good work!" Ms Roulston, Kingsbridge Patient
"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ... Thank you to all!" Ms Cheong, Kingsbridge Patient
"Currently just back from recovery on the ward. I have just had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee. What can I say? This place is brilliant. I arrived at 8.35am, taken to the ward at 8.45am (my admission time was 9am). Tended to by a lovely Nurse. Dr Roger Wilson spoke to me around 9.45am, in Theatre for 10am, recovery for 11.10am and now currently back on ward. These guys are awesome. From the consultant to anaesthetist to nurses to cater assistants. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to everyone at Kingsbridge for the service." Mr McNicholl, Kingsbridge Patient
"EXCELLENT - Had surgery today under the very caring Dr Stewart and her team. I cannot thank her enough for all she’s done for me over the past few months. Everything was explained to me in detail and all my care was considerate, professional and compassionate. Everyone I’ve met today has been beyond kind from Will the Anaesthetist, the Nurses and theatre staff, the catering staff - there has been no exception. Thank you all for taking care of me so well today - look forward to getting home tomorrow x" Mrs McAleavey, Kingsbridge Patient
