We present the first study of voluntary female sterilisation in Burkina Faso.
The average woman undergoing tubal ligation was a 37 year old, married, housewife para 8 with five living children.
The main reasons for TL were :
Achieved desired family size (45.9%) and medical reason (29.5%). The TL was ussually performed (77.8%) in the postpartum, using the Pomeroy technique.
With a follow up of three to fifteen months, no pregnancy has been reported and no request for reversal expressed.
The authors make some suggestions to increase the prevalence of TL in Burkina Faso.
