If you have fallen pregnant within 12 months of having a sterilisation procedure then you should contact MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE TEAM.
Sterilisation involves interrupting the Fallopian tubes by various surgical techniques; it can involve occlusion by clips, rings or implant, and excision of the tubes.
There is a small risk of failure – post sterilisation pregnancy. This can be for a number of reasons including natural recanalization the interrupted tube - reforming its continuity - or technical failure of the operation. It may be difficult to distinguish between these mechanisms of failed sterilization. The interval between the operation and the conception may provide a clue – the shorter the period the more likely the failure is due to technical failure.
So if you have fallen pregnant within 12 months of having a sterilisation procedure then you should contact MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE TEAM on 0800 246 11 22 or complete the form below and we will call you back.
