Fresh eggs: It may be technically possible to get the tubes repaired but the problem is getting them to work again after they were tied.. A fertility dr could help you ovulate & harvest some eggs through a laparoscope. Your husbands sperm could be added to the eggs and the resulting embryos placed into your womb. Difficult & expensive but possible.
