Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Clarification: Since you are a male, you may want to clarify if your partner had her fallopian tubes tied or whether you had a vasectomy done on your seminal ducts.

Microsurgery needed: The idea of "tying the tubes" is somewhat misleading. It gives the impression that the tubes can simply be untied. Its a bit more complicated than that. It requires microsurgery to put the tubes back together again. A tubal reversal has less than a 50% chance of success. Best wishes!

No: 'test tube baby' is a much older non-medical term that used to be used when talking about ivf pregnancies. They are the same thing.
