Mensagem:  IS IT POSSIBLE FOR A WOMAN TO GET STERILIZED BY TAKING? (The Pill is oral but not the others)CONTRACEPTIVES?
See why I think the answer is "NO"

I think "surgery" is the key word.
It goes with "Sterilized", (Permanent Birth Contrlol like "Tubal Sterilization"   but not with (Temporary Birth Control/Contraceptives like The Pill, Diaphragm, Spermicide, IUD,...)

See if this dialog helps to understand it better:
....
No kids? Do you want any?
No, it's not necessary.
I'm too old now.
Besides, I'm fixed down there. (I understood that "She had a tubal ligation -or- He had a vasectomy when younger."


What do you think?
