Young eggs = possibl: If you are young enough to ovulate healthy eggs, you can have a baby. The tough part is the technology required & it's cost.

I have had my tubes tied clipped and burned and its been 7 years ago since I had that done is there anyway I could have a baby later on?

Tubal ligation: .. reversal can be done, though the success rate for pregnancy after a tubal ligation procedure is 10% or less. It is not recommended as the reversal surgery will incur more scar tissue on the adnexa (connective tissue part of the ovaries to the uterus) which in turn will lessen the chance of successful passage of an ovum from the fallopian tubes. So, achieving pregnancy is highly unlikely. ...Read more

I got my tubes tied almost ten years ago. My husband and I want to have a baby. Can I still have one? Or has time past to long being tied?

Depends: You have a couple of options. First of all, if you are still having regular monthly periods that indicates you are still ovulating, which is good. Your options are: ivf (which is what I would recommend, it is expensive, but you have the greatest chance of ending up with a baby after this) or getting a 'tubal reversal' but that would depend on how it was done, and more risks (ectopic pregnancy, et. ...Read more

Fresh eggs: It may be technically possible but 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 through a laparoscope. Your husbands sperm could be added to the eggs and the resulting embryos placed into your womb. Difficult & expensive but possible. ...Read more

Decisions, decisions: Life is full of decisions, some easy, some hard. Sterilizations such as vasectomy and tubal ligation are permanent and are hard decisions to make. Deciding to do a vasectomy or tubal ligation means deciding not to ever start another pregnancy... and knowing that there is no going back. There are countless OTHER things to do in life on the road ahead, and so little time. Today is the day to start. ...Read more

You: You have 2 basic options for achieving another pregnancy: surgical sterilization reversal and in vitro fertilization (ivf). You need to seek care from a reproductive surgeon or reproductive endocrinologist to determine the best option for you. Your dr. Will need to know the specific technique used to cut your fallopian tubes (ideally they would like to review the operation report), your general health and some reproductive fertility assessment tests.

Age
at 44, your success rate is extremely low - I am very sorry. The natural pregnancy rate in the us is about 0.5-1/1000 women. Ivf might be 1-2% (and only if your fertility tests are normal). Tubal reversal is likely a very poor option for you because it takes 12-18 months to achieve maximum pregnancy rates and you simply do have that much time. I am sorry that the stats for women your age are really poor. See link (http://www. Cdc. Gov/art/artreports. Htm).

Costs
sterilization reversal surgery can cost almost as much as in ivf cycle because the surgery requires anywhere from 2-4 hours to perform in the operating room is very expensive part of the hospital. The cost is from about $8, 000 - $15, 000. Ivf cycles often come with a refund guarantee but surgery never does - and this may make ivf cheaper.

Now assume all options on the table
sterilization reversal is one of the few reproductive surgeries that offers a high success rate. The surgery requires an operative microscope in order to remove the scar tissue around the ends of the tube that was cut and to sew them together. Not every surgeon is trained to perform microsurgery therefore you should seek out a surgeon with experience.

Ivf does not require that your fallopian tubes be open. Ivf is a good option for situations in which the sterilization surgery removed a large amount of fallopian tube, the woman's age is older than 35-38 years or or there is also a male factor involved such that the sperm has a low potential for fertilizing the egg. You did not state in your question whether this is the same partner that created the first children or whether you have a new partner and he may or may not be fertile.

In order to choose between these 2 treatment options, we need to determine that there would be sufficient tube length at the end of the sterilization reversal surgery to yield a high probability of success compared to ivf, that your fertility potential is not compromised suggesting a small window of opportunity to achieve pregnancy, that your husband has normally functioning sperm and that you are willing to invest at least one year after surgery to achieve pregnancy. Additionally, if you're a good surgical candidate and you want to have multiple children then surgery may be a better option because we cannot always guarantee that you will have extra embryos frozen after ivf. Ivf is so success these days that there is a trend away from surgery.

We often cannot reliably determine whether surgery or ivf would be the best option. We also need to look at the costs of both surgery and ivf and what insurance will pay plus whether you can have a refund guarantee for ivf.

In conclusion, you may have 2 options for achieving another child. I predict that when you meet with your physician, that the answer to some of these questions will become more obvious. I also think you will be steered to ivf if you are a candidate because it works faster. Good luck. ...Read more

I had my tubes tied 4 years ago and me and my husband want to have a baby now will my insurence pay for it I really want to get pregnant again and have a baby

Doubt it: Most fertility related treatments are excluded from policies when you have previously decided to tie your tubes. This would require either tubal reversal, which is not guaranteed to work or direct IVF which is also not guaranteed to work. Each round of IVF treatments would require time & work through a fertility center. You can always ask, but don't be surprised if its not a covered benefit. ...Read more

Is a tubal reversal guaranteed and expensive? I'm 44 years old and had my tubes tied 21 years ago. My second husband would like to have a baby with me, but don't know if its possible much less affordable.

Tubal: Tubal ligation reversals are expensive and getting pregnant is not normally guaranteed. But the real issue at heart is that at age 44, fertility rates are very low. It is very difficult for any woman to become pregnant at age 44 years old and the chance of carrying the fetus to term is even lower. There is a much higher rate of genetic effects at this age as well. Sorry, to provide dissappointing information. Take care. ...Read more

Tubal reversal: You have the choice of in-vitro (ivf) or tubal reversal. A gyn specialist can often give you a good success rate with surgical repair of "tied" tubes and you can try each month for pregnancy. Ivf costs a lot of money each monthly attempt and also has a good success rate in young healthy women. ...Read more

If you get your tubes tied, could you still have a baby with help from ivf?

Absolutely: Blocked tubes is the reason ivf was invented, and ivf is often a better approach than a surgical tubal ligation reversal. See a specialist (reproductive endocrinogy / infertility or rei md) who offers both options to assess your individual situation. Workup includes checking your partner's sperm (semen analysis) even if he's the father of your kids, and checking your egg supply. Best wishes. ...Read more

I want to have a baby...But my tubes are tied. Is there away to get pregnant. Without the surgery?

Bypass tubes: The cost may still be an issue but tube reversal is not always successful. A fertility center can harvest some of your eggs and fertilize them with dads sperm. The resulting combo can be placed in your womb at the appropriate time after your body has been prepared to receive the embryos. ...Read more

Can someone who had s.T.I have a baby?

Many do: The first step is to treat the std. Many of these can cause miscarriage or fetal damage. Once treated (if treatable), pregnancy can have a normal outcome. For some std's with chronic recurrent features, pregnancy can be established during a period of good control or remission & progress normally if certain precautions are taken. ...Read more
