“Firmly in my child-free era” –30 year old lady gets her fallopian tubes tied
A 30-year-old lady has stirred mixed reactions online after undergoing surgery to tie her fallopian tubes and remain child-free.
The woman said in a TikTok video that she got the procedure because she didn’t want to become pregnant and deal with the physical and emotional scars that comes with child bearing.
“Finally got my tubes tied! Firmly in my child-free era. So proud of myself of taking control of my life and eliminating pregnancy scares and @borshun from my future.”
Tubal ligation also known as having your tubes tied or tubal sterilization is a type of permanent birth control. During tubal ligation, the fallopian tubes are cut, tied or blocked to permanently prevent pregnancy.
The procedure prevents an egg from traveling from the ovaries through the fallopian tubes and blocks sperm from traveling up the fallopian tubes to the egg. It doesn’t affect your menstrual cycle.
Tubal ligation can be done at any time, including after childbirth or in combination with another abdominal surgery, such as a C-section. Most tubal ligation procedures cannot be reversed. If reversal is attempted, it requires major surgery and isn’t always effective.

Tubal ligation prevents an egg from traveling from the ovaries through the fallopian tubes and blocks sperm from traveling up the fallopian tubes to the egg.

Tubal ligation is a safe and effective form of permanent birth control. But it doesn’t work for everyone. Fewer than 1 out of 100 women will get pregnant in the first year after the procedure. The younger you are at the time it’s done, the more likely it is to fail.
If you do conceive after having a tubal ligation, there’s a risk of having an ectopic pregnancy. This means the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube.
An ectopic pregnancy requires immediate medical treatment. The pregnancy cannot continue to birth. If you think you are pregnant at any time after a tubal ligation, contact your health care provider immediately.
