There are many reasons why you might consider female sterilisation reversal. No matter what your reasons, a new family or a simple change of mind, you may be wondering about the risks involved. In undertaking any type of procedure, it’s important to be informed so while the complications are rare and few, here is what you need to know about female sterilisation reversal and its risks.
- Bleeding. While some bleeding may occur, heavy bleeding is very rare. You are more apt to see some bruising and this will abate on its own. Always consult with the clinic should you notice any bleeding that doesn’t seem normal but rest assured this is not something that typically happens.
- Infections. With any type of procedure infections can occur, no matter what kind of operation you have. However, in a female sterilisation reversal this is a rare occurrence. Those that can happen in rare instances are chest infections, urinary infections and wound infections but all can be treated with the use of antibiotics.
- Blood Clots. Like infections, blood clots can happen after any operation. Our clinic makes sure to perform a risk assessment before your procedure so that if you do have certain risks for a blood clot you will get treatment tailored to your needs. In fact, most women wear flow-tron boots and/or anti-embolus stockings which helps keep blood clots from forming in the first place.
