Tubal Implants for Permanent Birth Control

Picture of tubal implants for permanent birth control

A tubal implant is a small metal spring that is placed in each of the two fallopian tubes without using surgery. It is guided through the vagina, cervix, and uterus, and lodged in a fallopian tube. Over time, scar tissue grows around the two implants and permanently blocks the tubes. This stops eggs from traveling from the ovaries and down the fallopian tubes, where eggs are normally fertilized by sperm.
