[6 shown]
Sterilizations
All sterilization techniques should be considered permanent. Therefore, patients should only consider sterilization as a birth control option when they are certain that they do not wish to have any future children. If you have any doubt that you might want children in the future, you should not consider sterilization!
Please note that sterilizations do not offer protection against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Proper protection against STDs must be used after sterilization. More...

The 40-minute surgery is generally performed under local anesthesia; however, Family Planning Center offers the patient the option to have additional IV sedation.
