TLDR
Complications due to sterilization are the main causes of regret, and it is necessary to pay more attention to mentioning the probable complications of the procedures such as low back pain, weight gain and mood disorders in women and pain, swelling and decreased libido in men during pre-sterilization counseling; post-sterILization counseling is also encouraged for increasing satisfaction rate in these volunteers.
