Pregnancy (Definition)

I had tubal ligation 7years ago and want to become. Pregnant?

Choices: You have two possible choices. 1. Tubal reversal- you will undergo surgery to have your fallopian tubes reconnected. There is no guarantee this would work and there is an increased chance of tubal ectopic pregnancy. 2. Ivf (test tube baby) #2 option is more favored today for many reasons. ...Read more

Can a woman who has had a tubal ligation nine years ago become pregnant? What are some of the signs?

Can a woman who has had a tubal ligation nine years ago become pregnant?  What are some of the signs?

Yes: The chance of getting pregnant after a tubal ligation is low but not zero. According to one study, the failure (pregnancy) rate can be as high as 5.5% over 10 years. This means that if 100 women had this procedure 5-6 would get pregnant over the next 10 years. Of course, the risk of pregnancy depends on the type of procedure done. The signs are the same as without a tubal ligation. ...Read more

Alternative plan: You may remember signing off on several documents before you underwent these procedures. Both are considered permanent forms of contraception. You had the lining of your uterus burned so it is unlikely it could ever support a pregnancy. Your tubes are non-functional. Your only out would be to harvest your eggs and have them implanted in a surrogate. ...Read more

I had a tubil ligation in 2009. Is it possible for me to get pregnant again?

I had a tubil ligation in 2009. Is it possible for me to get pregnant again?

Yes: I respectfully disagree with the last answer. At 28, you should still have good success rates with a reversal. Sucess 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%. Ivf is also an option but generally costs a lot more. Hope this helps. Good luck. ...Read more
