Tubal Ligation with Tubal Ring & Clip

Tubal rings or clips are two ways of tubal ligation that is performed on the fallopian tubes, in a laparoscopy method. Both the tubal ring and clip clamp the fallopian tubes so that the egg does not come in contact with the sperm. The tubal ring and the clip are considered mechanical ways of blocking the fallopian tubes, as part of a birth-control method.

The tubal ring is also known as the ‘falope’ or ‘yoon’ ring. It is also referred to as the ‘lay loop’ in medical parlance. This tubal ring is placed around the loop of the fallopian tube, clamping it therefore, and preventing any contact between the egg and the sperm. Under this method, an applicator in the shape of a cone is inserted through an incision near the abdomen. This applicator draws a section of the fallopian tube inside, after which the tubal ring is released on the section. Due to its elastic nature, the ring tends to contract, thus tightening the loop and clamping the fallopian tube.

The mechanism of the tubal clip is also similar to the tubal ring. The tubal clip also seeks to clamp the fallopian tube. In this case, a plastic clip with a gold spring lock is placed around the fallopian tub. The clip compresses the fallopian tube and helps prevent any further pregnancies. Tubal clips are known to cause less physical damage to the fallopian tubes than other methods of tubal ligation.

Usage of tubal rings and clips also make a tubal reversal surgery possible.

    I was clamped back in 2006 after my second son was born. How long is the tubal rings good for cause I can swear I had a miscarage just last year and can they slip off. What are my chances of having it removed to have more children?
