Surgical Methods

  • These are permanent ways for contraception and are available for both males and females.
  • In females, this surgical process is known as tubectomy . In this, the fallopian tube is cut and the ends are tied.
  • For males, this surgical process is called vasectomy in which vas deferens is cut and the ends joined together.
  • But surgeries can cause infections or other complications if not performed properly.

Note: Surgical methods can also be used for removal of unwanted pregnancies . However, this can be misused by people to particularly get rid of girl child. This is also known as female foeticide.

Because of excessive female foeticide, the male-female sex ratio has been disturbed and therefore, government has banned prenatal sex determination.
