Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Is it possible to do birth control surgery also during a C-section at the time of delivery?

Answered by Dr. Sameer Kumar


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I am delighted to help you.

Yes, you can opt for tubal ligation during cesarean section but you have to give consent for the same prior to the cesarean section. Usually, the doctor proceeds with the ligation only after the pediatrician confirms that the baby is doing fine. If not, then you will be informed on the table and the doctor usually avoids the procedure considering the condition of the neonate. The procedure can then be performed after six to nine months through laparoscopy once the child is growing healthily. I hope you had a pleasant experience at icliniq.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
