In a natural process, sperm swims through the fallopian tubes to meet with the egg and results in pregnancy. Tubectomy is a method of birth control, and it is known as getting your tubes tied. Tubal ligation is a surgery that saves a woman from becoming pregnant. It shuts off her fallopian tubes (carrier of an egg from the ovary to the uterus every month). But when these tubes are sealed, the egg and sperm cannot reach each other and limits pregnancy.
