Can You Ovulate After Tubal Ligation
Ever since I've had my tubal ligation I've been in horrible pain. Every time I ovulate or have my period the pain is unbearable. What can I do?
Talk to your doctor: While you could have some scar tissue from the tubal ligation causing pain, it is more likely that your previous contraceptive was treating the pain and your problem now isn't the surgery but the fact that you have stopped that contraceptive. Your doctor should be able to make some suggestions for treating the pain. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Is it normal to spot during ovulation of you've had your tubes tied? I had a tubal ligation 13 years ago and I just started spotting recently.
Depends: It depends on the type of tubal ligation. If you had your tubes cut and tied at the time of a cesarean delivery, it fails about 1 time in 400. If you had a clip placed on the tube it is usually around 1:300. The newer tubal ligations where we put a coil or plug in the tubes are better and fail really rarely. ...Read more
Depends on procedure: Most patients now opt for an in office procedure called the essure. The one I did this morning in my office took less than two minutes and the patient and I were chatting the entire time. ...Read more
Clipping vs scarring: There are two ways of doing this. The first, more traditional, is to surgically clip the tubes, tying each end so fertilization cannot occur. A newer way is to insert a coil (example: essure) that causes the tube to constrict and scar down, no longer allowing passage of sperm upward, or eggs downward. This is usually performed without surgery so it can be less expensive and faster recovery. ...Read more
Everyone's different: If you are worried about pain after sterilization then you might want to consider the essure tubal as I have seen very little pain experenced after it as there is no cutting or burning with it. ...Read more
Lowest in general: The failure rate of a tubal ligation is the lowest of all birth control methods. Having said that in the CREST study African American women had higher failure rates that non AA women, and younger women (under the age of 27) had a more than 20 fold higher failure rate than women over 35 y/o. ...Read more

40% to 85%.:
But it depends on several factors: the best candidates for tubal reversal are women younger than age 40 who had sterilization surgery immediately following childbirth.
Have you considered adopting? Probably cheaper, and the success rate is 100%! and you would be doing a good thing. A very good thing. ...Read more
Yes: But it is a very important decision. Although people talk about reversing this surgery, the results are variable, so assume that it will be permanent. You are young and life changes more than we think at 21. If you seek sterility there are many options without surgery. Take your time to make a decision. ...Read more
Usually yes: A majority of tubal ligations can be reversed. If the tube is completely remove this obviously cannot be reversed. Occasionally parts of the fallopian tube will be buried within the back of the uterus and this cannot be repaired. Also if the tube is burnt in three separate places this doesn't allow enough to be repaired. Always seek reversal by experienced micro surgeons such as reproductive endocrinologist. ...Read more
None: Following a tubal ligation you should have no side effects. Once your anesthetic wears off, you should feel fine. However, many patients complain of irregular or painful cycles, hormonal based symptoms (pmdd/pms), or ovulation pain: symptoms that were controlled nicely with their prior birth control. Many women take hormonal birth control to control these sx, so talk to your doc if this is you. ...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 more
Depends: It depends on where the tubes were ligated. Sometimes total tubal removal is performed which cannot be reversed. A good tubal anastomosis can carry a pregnancy rate of approximately 60 to 80% after the micro reversal. The success rate depends on the experience of your micro surgeon. ...Read more
Yes in the right: Hands, assuming you have a good dcotor it is usually safe, I do tubals in the office by the essure method which is much easier and safer than having a laparoscopic or robotic tubal or a minilap tubal, u can go online and read about all the methods, anyone can have a complication but if done properly the risk of a problem or se is low, in my opinion essure is the safest and easiest and least pain! ...Read more
