New Hysteroscopic Sterilisation Service at The Portland
09 February 2011
The Portland Hospital is the first private hospital in the UK to offer hysteroscopic sterlisation, a minimally invasive procedure for women whose families are complete.
This is a permanent birth control procedure performed by a Consultant Gynaecologist during which small, flexible micro-inserts are placed into the woman's fallopian tubes through the vagina and natural pathways of the body. During the next three months, the body forms a natural barrier around the micro-inserts that prevents sperm from reaching the egg.
Three months after the procedure a test is performed to confirm that the micro-inserts are placed correctly and that the woman can rely on the procedure for permanent birth control.
