What type of anesthesia do they use when you get sterilized?
updated over 1 year ago

Depends. For a tubal ligation (needing an incision in the abdomen), they’ll probably put you to sleep. In some cases, they might offer a spinal or epidural. For something like Essure, you may get put to sleep, or you may just need IV sedation. By the way, Essure will no longer be sold after the end of 2018. Find out more here.
