tubal implant is a small metal spring that is placed in each of the two
fallopian tubes without using surgery. It is guided through the vagina, cervix,
and uterus, and lodged in a fallopian tube. Over time, scar tissue grows around
the two implants and permanently blocks the tubes. This stops eggs from
traveling from the ovaries and down the fallopian tubes, where eggs are
normally fertilized by sperm.
