Can U Get A Tubal Reversal After Tubal Ligation
1 in 250: Unusual to become pregnant without surgery to reverse the tubal ligation. Many places this is a very expensive option. We offer outpatient tubal reversal surgery - laparoscopy at a very low cost. When ovarian function is normal, pregnancy rates are as high as 90%. Most programs push ivf but this option is at least 3x more costly. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Yes. Fertility can be obtained after a tubal ligation either through surgical repair (if amenable to reversal) or through ivf (tubal bypass). Tubal reversal success will depend on health of the tubes as well as chances to conceive overall. Ivf does not require tubes and therefore success will depend on the age of the female as well as presence of other infertility factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do you believe in Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome. If so, how do I get a tubal reversal paid for by my insurance company?
Post tubal syndrome: Yes, many women experience shortening of their menstrual cycle frequency due to an interruption of a blood vessel that traverses under the Fallopian tube from the uterus. Cycles of 18 to 21 days often occur. Reversing a tubal can be expensive and if cut in more than one place, impossible. Insurance companies almost never will pay for the procedure. ...Read more
I had an ablation and tubal ligation 5 years ago. Im considering a tubal reversal.What are my risks and success rate of having a healthy baby?
Probably: In my experience, 80-90% of tubal ligations can be reversed and generally with good results. I respectfully agree with the last answer and most skilled reproductive surgeons have excellent results with ectopic rates of 5% or less and pregnancy rates in the 60-70+% range depending on age. Surgery can be done as an outpatient with an overnight stay. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I'm a 42 yr old female, that desire to become pregnant. I had a laparoscopic tubal ligation with fulguration of the tube 1.5 cm (bilateral) in Aug 1999, is it possible to get a tubal reversal?
Depends: There are a number of factors in making that decision including what type of tubal ligation you had, how many years ago it occurred, and what your fertility is like now according to labs that would show how your ovaries function. If you are making that decision, you should have a consultation with a reproductive endocrinologist to see if he/she thinks you are a good candidate for either. ...Read more
Absolutely: The length of time your tubes are tied is a zero factor. Success depends on three factors: 1. Skill of the surgeon, 2. Length of tubal segments remaining, and 3. Age of the patient. In skilled hands, the surgery is safe and the risk of an ectopic is less than 5%. An operative report may help but is not always "accurate". Ivf is also an option but generally costs a lot more. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
