This is a prospective clinical study carried out on 96 tubectomised women referred for microsurgical reversal to the Pandit BDS Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Rohtak and LHMC and SSKH, New Delhi. It was concluded that in developing countries high perinatal and child mortality rates are responsible for increased demands for reversal of sterilisation. Proper pre-operative counselling, age of the women, assessment of marital stability, family size and age of children are important before advocating sterilisation as a method of contraception.
