The most common symptoms of mumps include fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, and loss of appetite followed by onset of parotitis (swollen and tender salivary glands under the ears -- on one or both sides).
Mumps can lead to hearing loss and aseptic meningitis (an infection of the covering of the brain and spinal cord) in about 10% of cases. Painful, swollen testicles occur in 20% to 30% of males who have reached puberty (orchitis) -- but rarely does this lead to fertility problems. About 30% of women who have reached puberty can have painful swollen breasts (mastitis) from mumps and, in a very few cases, inflammation of the ovaries.
Tubal ligation is surgery to close or block a woman's fallopian tubes so eggs released from the ovaries cannot enter the uterus and sperm cannot reach the egg. The procedure is done to prevent pregnancy.
It is also called female sterilization surgery, or "getting your tubes tied." The fallopian tubes may be closed by:
Tying the tubes together
Sealing them closed using a ring or clip
Burning (cauterizing) them together using a mild electric current
Tubal ligation is intended...
