In this type of tubal sterilization surgery, the surgeon inserts implants into the Fallopian tubes. To do this, he or she needs to put a hysteroscope instrument through the patient's vagina and cervix. With the aid of this device, they insert an implant into each tube. The implant causes scarring, and this blocks the tubes and in this way prevents conception. It takes about three months for a full blockage to occur. This surgery has a high safety record and successfully blocks conception in almost every case.
