Thinking About Getting Your Tubes Tied?

Thinking about getting your tubes tied (the colloquial term for a tubal ligation or female sterilization) but not sure what impact it will have on your sex life?  Read on…

A tubal ligation should not affect a woman’s hormone levels (as it simply blocks an egg from reaching the uterus by creating a blockage in the fallopian tubes), so in that respect it should have very little impact on a woman’s sex life.  In fact, the procedure may actually affect a woman’s libido positively because she no longer has to worry about becoming pregnant.  Therefore, a woman can enjoy sex more freely without being preoccupied with the risk of pregnancy.
