- Women who underwent a postpartum tubal ligation procedure during the entire study period - Women who had claims of a sterilization procedure during the baseline period - Women who had a claim for pregnancy or delivery within 6 weeks prior to the index date - Women who had more than one type of sterilization procedure (i.e., combination of hysteroscopic sterilization, laparoscopic tubal ligation or mini-laparotomy) on the same index date - Women who had concurrent procedures on the same day as the index sterilization procedure that were performed for reasons beyond the purpose of sterilization
