Infertility consult: If you are truly 40 years old you may not be able to get pregnant with your own eggs. An infertility specialist can do the proper bloodwork and counselling to see if you are better off with surgical reversal of the tubal ligation versus in vitro fertilization witheither your own or a donor's eggs.
