To study the long-term risk of hysterectomy after tubal sterilization, the authors analyzed historical hospital discharge data on 39,502 parous women sterilized during 1971 1984 and 40,505 comparison women matched on age, race, parity, and interval since last birth.
Sterilized women were significantly more likely than were comparison women to undergo hysterectomy (relative risk (RR)=1.35, 95% confidence interval (Cl) 1.26-1.44), especially for diagnoses of menstrual dysfunction and pelvic pain (RR=1.88, 95% Cl 1.65-2.13).
Higher relative risks were not associated with greater tissue-destructive methods of tubal occlusion.
