Could a woman who has had a tubal ligation and a man that has had a vasectomy have a child through in vitro?
Doc suggests either tubal ligation or vasectomy to my husband&I so that I can stop gaining weight from hormone contraceptives. Is this a good option?
Maybe if older.: If still young, such as under age 35 years, people can consider non-permanent contraception. For women, an IUD works well. Some IUDs don't even have hormones. The IUDs that do have hormones only have tiny amounts of them. For men, condoms work well. A condom has the added benefit of not leaving a glob of semen inside his partner's vagina... and thus may help decrease vaginal discharge or odor. ...Read more
Why am I suddenly faining weight at an extremely alarming pace? I quit smoking 2 months ago, and have gained almost 40 lbs since then. I had a c-section and tubal ligation almost 8 months ago, I work out regularly, and diet religiously....Please help, I c
Very common: Almost everyone gains weight after quitting smoking, usually in the range of 5-10 pounds, but sometimes more, and occasionally much more. If you are truly limiting your calories and are exercising, I don't know why it is continuing, and you should see your doctor to rule out any metabolic problem, like thyroid disease or many others. Congrats on quitting smoking! Don't backslide over weight! ...Read more

Depends: Success of a tubal ligation reversal depends on three things: 1. Age of the patient. 2. Skill of the surgeon. 3. Length of tubal segments that are remaining. Any one that is considering a reversal of her tubal sterilization needs to find a reproductive surgeon with a lot of experience and expertise with good success rates and especially a low incidence of ectopic pregnancy (less than 5%). ...Read more
BTA: Do you mean "who? " Many teaching hospitals/medical school hospitals have low costs or payment plans for such a thing. You can also find many private surgeons offering low-cost reversals, both in the United States and internationally, by searching online. Sometimes you do "get what you pay for" so I'd research and consider your options carefully. ...Read more
Nature of tubal: It depends on the nature of the tubal ligation. If it is done laparoscopically, which is under visualization with a camera, then this would be done under general anesthesia. The Essure procedure can be done in a doctor's office under mild sedation (where the patient keeps breathing on her own) and iv. pain medication. ...Read more
Hello I have a tubal ligation consultation this month. What is the fail rate of the tubal ligation.?
Depends on how done: It depends on the manner in which the Fallopian tubes are interrupted. Clips of the tube are less secure and have a higher failure rate. Cauterization of the tube in more the one place is more secure as well as removing a section of the tube itself. (1/10, 000 failure rate) Fallopian tubes can put themselves back together again by re-canalization. As to one reason for sterilization failure. ...Read more

Depends: 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
Tubal ligation: Hysteroscopy essure done through the cervix is definitely the first choice. There is less complication and higher protection rate. Recovery time is about one day compare to one week for the 'old fashioned' method. However, due to anatomy variations, some essure procedure can not be completed. In that case, the old laparoscopy procedure through the belly button is still a good back-up. ...Read more

Yes.: A tubal ligation, having your "tubes tied, " is a permanent method of birth control. It is possible to have the procedure done without having children, as long as you do not desire future children.
