Summary An exploration of women's experience of tubal ligation and the social context in which their contraceptive decision making occurs. This study gives priority to women's knowledge about their own bodies and investigates how women negotiate contraceptive risks, the information provision process, the outcome of tubal ligation in terms of side-effects and the medical responses to women's reporting of their problems. It makes recommendations about the information women should have to meet the requirement of an informed consent when accepting contraceptive surgery.
