  • Upon Doctor's Advice, Maya Flores Underwent Tubal Ligation After Three Cesarean Sections

  • After having three kids, Maya Flores and Geoff Eigenmann are done having more babies. It was a medical choice for the couple. 

    “Kasi, ano siya… C-section siya, yung lahat ng kanyang pregnancies, and medyo malapit siya [last baby nila] sa gap ng aming other two kids, so medyo delikado for her,” explained Geoff to Pep.ph during the press launch of Daiggid Ko’y Ikaw. 

    Maya gave birth to their third daughter, Pepper, on October 31, 2020, and had the procedure done after. She and Geoff have two older kids, Beanie, 3, and Angus, 1. 

    Their doctor advised them to have Maya undergo tubal ligation. It's a case to case basis, but women who've had repeat C-section are at risk for uterine rupture. (Read more about it here.)

    Geoff revealed that he would have wanted to have twins. But the couple talked about it and decided for themselves. 

    “Okay naman kami. We’re happy with our three kids. Within our family, kami na yung may pinakamaraming magkakapatid,” he added.

    What is tubal ligation?

    Geoff’s brother Ryan Eigenmann and his wife Cathy Bordalba, who also have three kids, also had the procedure. Chesca and Doug Kramer also had a tubal ligation after their youngest child Gavin was born. Last year, after six years, they started trying for another baby via in vitro fertilization.

    Tubal Ligation, according to the Mayo Clinic,  is the most common surgical sterilization procedure or permanent birth control. Tubal refers to the fallopian tube, while ligation means “to tie off.” 

    The surgical procedure is done in women, wherein their fallopian tubes are either cut, removed, blocked, or tied. It prevents the sperm from traveling up to the fallopian tubes to fertilize the egg and the egg from traveling from the ovaries to the uterus.

    Though some types of tubal ligation may be reversed, only about 50% to 80% of women had successfully become pregnant after the reversal procedure.

    Women who’ve undergone tubal ligation will still have their monthly menstrual cycle but do not have to worry about getting pregnant. But it doesn’t protect the woman from sexually transmitted illnesses. 

    Tubal Ligation is not for everybody, so it’s best to consult your doctor before deciding on having the procedure done.
