Summary

A 34-year-old gravida 3, para 3 is undergoing an interval bilateral salpingectomy for permanent sterilization. She is currently using combined oral contraceptive pills (containing ethinyl estradiol/norethindrone) for contraception. Because of side effects associated with the pill, she has opted for permanent sterilization. She understands sterilization is a permanent procedure and is certain she has completed her family. Her pre-procedure pregnancy test was negative. All her deliveries were spontaneous vaginal deliveries. She has no history of easy bleeding or bruising. She has no past medical or surgical history. She is not taking any other medications and she has no known drug allergies.
