Is it possible to get tubal reversal after tubal ligation with clams?

Is it possible to get tubal reversal after tubal ligation with clams?

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 more

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.

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 more

It will cost you mon: Anything is possible if you believe! However, you need to check your finances because a tubal reversal is not covered under most insurance companies. $6000 is the lowest that I have heard. There is a doctor in North Carolina who charges a flat rate. ...Read more

What is a better medical choice with tubal ligation to obtain a pregnancy; IVF or 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

Is it possible to get a tubal ligation reversal?

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 more
