Here’s how sterilisation works:
Both men and women can undergo a sterilisation procedure.
A male sterilisation is usually referred to as a vasectomy. In this procedure, a tube referred to as a sperm duct is severed taking away the ability to cause impregnation.
In females, sterilisation can be performed in 3 different ways:
- Hysteroscopic Sterilisation (abbreviated as HS) – Here, the fallopian tubes are blocked using an implant.
- Tubal ligation (Tubal occlusion) – Rings or clips are used to block the fallopian tubes
- Salpingectomy – Sterilisation is achieved through the surgical removal of the fallopian tubes
What are the reasons for sterilisation failures?
Even after a sterilisation, conception might occur in some cases, though most procedures have the intended permanent effects.
One of the inherent risks of sterilisations is the reconnection of the sperm duct and fallopian tubes through the body’s natural healing process. It’s unfortunate, but you cannot make a claim under such circumstances.
However, we can assist you in making a claim for damages, if in fact your sterilisation procedure was done negligently.
A sterilisation procedure may not yield the intended results due to negligent conduct on the part of the medical team handling the procedure, such as:
- Incorrect clipping or clamping of the fallopian tubes
- Incorrectly cutting the sperm duct
Sometimes, an infection or injury might occur due to mistakes made during the sterilisation procedure. If you have gone through this, to help you shoulder the associated medical costs until you make a complete recovery, we can help you make a claim for damages.
It’s important for you to use contraceptives immediately after undergoing the sterilisation procedure even though it’s meant to have lasting effects. Note that this should be clearly communicated to you by your doctor; failure to which you can make a claim for damages based on the grounds of negligent conduct on their part.
