My tubes were cut and tied after my C-section 7 years ago, what are my chances of getting Pregnant with out surgery? What are the steps to do?

My tubes were cut and tied after my C-section 7 years ago, what are my chances of getting Pregnant with out surgery? What are the steps to do?

Almost none: The purpose of a tubal ligation is permanent sterilization. Your ability to get pregnant is less than 1%, and if you have not become pregnant after 7 years it is approaching zero. There is nothing you can do short of surgical reversal. If you want to do that you need to see a GYN. ...Read more

I am 39 years old and want to get my tubes untied , what are my chances of getting pregnant again?

I am 39 years old and want to get my tubes untied , what are my chances of getting pregnant again?

Ok: Success of a tubal reversal depends on three things: age of the patient and at 39 you are still ok, skill of the surgeon and length of tubal segments remaining. In my experience, the "bands" are the easiest to reverse and give you the best success rates. Ivf is also an option but generally is more expensive. It is a choice. Good luck. ...Read more

I had my tubes tied 9 yrs ago and just recently remarried. We had a miscarriage in oct. 2011 how can we get pregnant again and how can we increase our chances of getting pregnant again and lower our risk of another miscarriage?

I : I am assuming you had a reversal procedure. Please reply if otherwise. To help pin point ovulation thus having a better chance of conceiving buy an ovulation prediction kit and follow the detailed instructions. As far as lowering the risk of miscarriage, this is nearly impossible. Most pregnancies that end in miscarriage are a result of the fetus having a chromosomal defect that is incompatible with life. There are other causes of miscarriage (clotting disoders etc.) but these are not usually considered until a woman has 3 miscarriages. Please see your doctor; after obtaining a detailed history from you and your partner he/she will be able to give more applicable advice. I wish you the best of luck. ...Read more

I had a tubuligation two and a half yrs ago they cut and burned my tubes. Do i still have a chance of getting pregnant even after that was done? Help!

I had a tubuligation two and a half yrs ago they cut and burned my tubes. Do i still have a chance of getting pregnant even after that was done? Help!

Yes: You have two options- one is to do a reversal of your tubal sterilization. It doesn't matter how your tubes were tied, only if you have enough tubal segments left. In the right hands, pregnancy rates are very good and the risk of an ectopic pregnancy is low. The other option is ivf, which also can be very successful; generally more expensive. It is a choice for you and your partner to make. ...Read more

How if I get the surgery done to unblock my tubes what are my chances are for me getting pregnant after?

How if I get the surgery done to unblock my tubes what are my chances are for me getting pregnant after?

Depends on why: the tubes are blocked. If your tubes are not damaged but simply 'clogged' (yes this happens) your chances may be excellent after surgery. If your tubes are blocked due to fibrosis and inflammation (PID for example) outcome may be much less good. ...Read more

What are my chances of getting pregnant after tubes tied in 2003 and miscarriage in 2007?

What are my chances of getting pregnant after tubes tied in 2003 and miscarriage in 2007?

Not unless....: Unless your tubal liagtion failed (roughly 1 in 100 do) your chance of natural conception is zero. Are you certain you had a miscarriage in 2007, because that suggests at least one tube is working. A reproductive endocrinologist can help you learn more about your options. ...Read more

What are the chances of getting pregnant after having your tubes tied 10 years ago w/o surgery ? They used filshie clips to tie my tubes

1 to 2%: Tubal ligation was standard method of sterilization 10 years ago. But times have changed... Essure is the most effective method today! a doctor performs essure in their office or surgery center by inserting a small scope into the uterus and placing permanent plugs into the tubes blocking them. No cutting. No general anesthesia. No significant pain. No downtime. ...Read more
