How does tubal ligation prevent sperm from reaching the egg yet women can still get their period?


I don’t understand how getting your tubes tied doesn’t let sperm reach the egg yet the egg can still travel down the Fallopian tubes to cause a period. Isn’t the eggs cell larger than a sperm cell?



The egg doesn’t cause the period. Hormones prepare the womb for the egg, and then cause the period if there is no pregnancy.

The egg is just one cell. At first.

Egg cant get to the place it needs to be to be fertilized because the “tubes” are cut. You still menstruate as normal because your uterus doesnt know that the egg will never have the chance to get there.

The egg doesn’t cause menstruation. Menstruation is shedding of the uterine lining, regardless of if an egg is present or not.
