Sterilisation involves clipping or tying of the tubes and is a small operation which should have minimal side effects. Hysterectomy involves removal of the womb and is a much bigger operation usually only done if there is something wrong with the uterus.

Sorry to repeat myself there!
There should be no sexual side effects provided procedures are 100% successful and there are no complications which are generally rare.

Hysterectomy is the removal of the womb, ovaries and cervix. The op can be done removing all 3 but if ovaries or cervix are healthy they can remain. This operation is done when there is a medical reason to do so.

Sterilization is the tying of the fallopian tubes which stops the eggs/ova travelling from the ovaries to the womb. This can be done when you have decided that you dont want anymore children.
