Surrogacy: Its where you find someone that will carry a baby for you.Your hubby's sperm is added to eggs harvested from you and they use IVF to plant the result in a surrogate. This is quite expensive and not covered by insurance, but it is a way for you to have a kid. Otherwise you are done. ...Read more

Pregnancy test: Tubal ligations are very reliable but they do occasionally fail. Take a pregnancy test. If you are not pregnant then there are many reason's for a missed period such as hormonal shifts, early menopause, stress, and thyroid disorders. If you are not pregnant and do not get a period soon, see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

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

Can a tubal ligation be reversed I am 47 years old

Yes, : Yes, a tubal ligation can be reversed. But at age 47 years old you are not likely to have viable eggs in your ovaries. The chances of natural conception and carrying a pregnancy to term at this age would be so low, that i don't know why you would consider this surgery. Mother nature only designed us to bear children until a certain age. ...Read more

Anastomosis: Micro tubal anastomosis is very successful when performed by well trained reproductive endocrinologists. The success rates depend upon where the ligation is on the tubes and what length of tube is left after the anastomosis procedure. ...Read more

Options limited: In order to regain your fertility, you need to either have a tubal reversal or undergo ivf. If a spontaneous pregnancy does take place without either treatments, it is likely secondary to failure of the tubal ligation to prevent pregnancy, but i wouldn't count on that. ...Read more

Hard to say: Easiest way to know is ask your doctor or request your operative records. If you had the tubal ligation within days of delivery or during cesarean delivery, the tubes were likely tied and cut. If it was performed later via laparoscopy, then they may have been cauterized (burned), or a clip or ring may have been placed to block the tubes. Procedure choice is highly physician dependent. ...Read more
