Need some advice on family planning. Which method should I use? - Online Doctor Chats
Good Morning Dr.
welcome to XXXXXXX
Dr. i need some advice on family planning
i wanted to go in for an operation
but not sure which one is advisable
You mean a tubectomy ?
i wanted to speak with some Gyno if possible
May i know , if you have completed your family ?
Do u plan to have more kids , later on ?
no not at all
in that case, there are 2 options , as part of permanent family planning measures
and 2 , a tubectomy , which you may undergo . This is a surgery requiring day care or at least a day of hospitalisation
and is costlier than vasectomy , for your husband
i heard there is something called maual operation and one is done elecricaly
i am sorry i don't know the exac medical terms used
so talking in common english
electrical means cauterisation and the other one is with tight stiches placed and the ends cut to avoid recanalisation
both have the same result
which one do you suggest
is better one
either one can be chosen
you can go for cauterisation , which is easier to be done
and what the side effect Dr.
there is a alternative, version called Clip placement, which is done, in case, you plan to have kids at a later date
there are no side effects in the other two, except, the procedure is permanent
alright, there could also not be impact on my monthly cycle right
will i have a regular mensutration
no , tubectomy does not affect your ovaries or the uterine function , hence, menses wil not be affected
alright, and Dr. one more thing can this operation be covered in insurace
Yes, in most cases, they are covered, but you should enquire about that to your insurance provider, first as the policies vary with insurance providers
any other advice or suggestion you might want to give me
in case there is no issues, it would be better for your husband to undergo VASECTOMY
which is much easier and less costlier
sure, we will discuss and take a desicssion
thanks for your help Dr
have a nice day
thanks and same to you
