Artificial Insemination If Your Tubes Are Tied
Anything is Possible: Never say never. It would be very unlikely for you to become pregnant if your tubes had been tied and cauterized. Nevertheless, there is a chance if part of the tube was accidentally left behind or grew back. If you think you might be pregnant now, perform a home pregnancy test. Consult your physician.

Aka oviduct, uterine tube, or salpinx. It is basically a small tube connecting between the ovary and the uterus. This tube carries the eggs from the ovary area to the unterus.

No: When your tubes have been tied (successfully) , the egg and sperm can't get together in the tube where fertilization occurs. Insemination just gets the sperm into the uterus. After a tubal, the options for pregnancy are tubal reversal surgery and in vitro. In vitro takes the eggs out of the ovary with an ultrasound and needle and mixes them in the lab with sperm. ...Read more
Yes: Fallopian tube ligations/cautery/clipping does have a small faliure rate based upon the method used to alter the tube. Also, many tubal ligation failures are ectopic pregnancies as the sperm can get to the egg, but the fertilized ovum can't get back through a partially obstructed tube to implant in the uterus and will "stick" wherever it gets "stuck". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tubal reversal: Your chance for success for either a reversal or ivf depends on the type of surgery and your egg quality. I would recommend checking your day 2/3 levels for fsh, Estradiol and anti-mullerian hormone. These tests would give some assessment of your ovarian function today and whether it would be worthwhile to consider the surgery or ivf. Still, ivf would allow you a better chance for success. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Absolutely: The tubes and ovaries are completely separate embryologic structures and therefore are independent of each other when it comes to ivf. For ivf, all you need is functioning ovaries. It also makes the point that unless absolutely necessary, you should never remove an ovary because you are removing half the number of eggs that are available for ivf recovery. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Yes, it's possible: Ectopic pregnancy, which is a pregnancy located outside of the normal location in the uterus, is possible after a tubal ligation procedure. However, the risk of any pregnancy, including ectopic pregnancy, is less than 1% (meaning 99 out of every 100 women who get their tubes tied will not get pregnant again, without in-vitro or other special techniques). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If you have blocked tubes can you have laparoscopy surgery done to help unblocked them before trying in vitro?
Not necessary: in my understanding, in vitro they placed the fertilized egg directly into the uterus, you do not need open tube for that. . if they could open your tube they should done that, and then there is no reason for the in vitro. in general it is not easy to open a tube. if the blocked tube were because of abdominal adhesion,then laprascopy could be helpful. good luck ...Read more
