a surgical process for female sterilization by lacerating, cauterizing, tying, or obstructing the fallopian tubes. Tubal ligation doesn't impact carnal drive, capacity for coitus, or menstrual cycles. Even though the impacts of the process might , at times, be reversed and the capacity to reproduce returned, it is generally thought to produce a lasting effect.

TUBAL LIGATION: "Some doctors will perform tubal ligation immediately following childbirth, while others require a waiting period."
