Fresh eggs: From your age i assume you still have a basket full of chances.It may be technically a problem as getting tubes to work again after they were tied is not always successful. A fertility dr could help you ovulate & harvest some eggs. Your husbands sperm could be added to the eggs and the resulting embryos placed into your womb. Both approaches can work but are expensive.
