Objective: The study is to analyse the demographic pattern of women presenting with Sterilization failure and its etiology and management.
Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective study conducted in the department of obstetrics and gynecology at tertiary care hospital over 3years from January 2015 to 2017.
Results: In our study 55 cases of sterilization failure have been reported. 50% were in age group of 26 to 30 years. Women with parity 3 were about 54%. Ectopic pregnancy in 35%. 87% presented with failure following modified pomeroy technique. 76.5% of the failure were observed in women who had sterilization with pregnancy termination. About 66% of failure were noticed between 1 to 5 years and 13% noticed in less than 1 year after sterilization.
Conclusion: Though female sterilization is a permanent method, failure is possible due to recanalization. Proper counseling and improving the standards of procedure can prevent complication and failure.
