In general, good candidates for tubal reversal are women who had only small parts of their fallopian tubes removed, or whose tubes were closed using rings or clips.

The : The short answer is yes, but it may not be easy. The two options to get pregnant are 1) having tubal reversal surgery (untying your tubes) 2) in vitro fertilization. Many factors play into this decision such as the extent of the previous surgery, your age and the number of children you would like to conceive in the future. For patients who are young and desire more than one child, tubal reversal may be a better option. For patients who want a single child, or who are older and may need fertility treatments after there tubes are "untied", in vitro fertilization may be a better option. Typically with a tubal reversal surgery the procedure is open surgery with a 6-10 cm incision that lasts more than one hour and may require 1-2 nights stay in the hospital. There is also no guarantee that the tubes may be reversed but typically the success rate is 50-70% for at least "untying" one tube properly. The longer it has been since your tubes were tied or the more of your tube they removed during the surgery, the less likely it is to be successful. Recovery time can be 4-6 weeks. The other option is to do in vitro fertilization. Typically during this process you will take birth control for three weeks followed by injectable medicines for another 2.5-3 weeks (lupron, then gonadotropins). The goal of ivf is to mature 10-20 eggs. Once it is determined by ultrasound and blood tests that you have enough matured eggs, the eggs will be retrieved from your ovary (removed with a needle) using an ultrasound. Once the eggs are removed they are fertilized with your partner's sperm to form embryos (fertilized eggs/early pregnancies). The embryos are then transferred (placed) to your uterus 3 or 5 days later, depending on the embryo number and quality. Recovery time from the egg retrieval procedure takes 24-48 hours. There is basically no recovery time (minutes) from the transfer. In order to determine which procedure is best for your situation, you may consider an appointment with a reproductive endocrinologist. ...Read more
