Had tubal ligation with rings done 2 years ago? Is pregnancy possible? How reliable are the fallopian rings?
Pregnancy with tubal: Yes- Pregnancy is possible although not likely. During the tubal ligation the tubes are tied off. The egg still ovulates and sperm can still theoretically get by the tubes occlusion. It happens, but is very rare. For the "Falope" ring the failure rate is 17.7/1000 procedures according to one study by Peterson, et.al. in the Am J Obstet Gynecol. Apr 1996;174(4):1161-8; discussion 1168-70. ...Read more
During my tubal ligation, my ob/gyn used a surgical instrument that is contraindicated for tubal sterilization. Is that ok to do?
Get second opinion: this story sounds incorrect. tubal ligation done properly is a very easy procedure and it is unusual that mistakes are made like this. the consequences of mistakes, like unintended pregnancy make doctors pretty careful about this stuff. get the operative report and review it with another gyn surgeon to put your mind at ease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can i still get pregnant after 3..4 yrs after tubal ligation (clamps) without reversal or without in vitro fertilization.Want a child but not surgery?
Informed Consent: No. Your tubes were not just clamped. They were cut, burned, scarred and made impossible to have any sperm or egg contact. This was very well explained to you when you chose to have your tubal ligation. There is little chance that surgery can repair this. Please discuss with your ob. ...Read more

Most say not bad: I can't address that question personally, but can say that 99% of my patients go home within 1 hour of the egg retrieval procedure. Probably 2/3 to 3/4 go back to work the next day. I never need to give more than 1 day of prescription pain medicine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How long after a tubal ligation procedure is it safe to have an orgasim per oral? The dr used the bands and not clips and didn't have to cauterize.
WhenYourBodyTellsYou: Technically that operation is minimally invasive so you should bounce back pretty quickly. However, each individual is different. It took me a month to start bouncing back from a minor hernia repair. So wait a week or so then start slowly progressing and see how it goes each day. You'll know if you are careful. But don't push it hard for about a month. Just "listen to your body." It will tell you ...Read more
How long after having a tubal sterilization Does it take to stop ovulating? I've been premenopausal since having the surgery done in 2011.
Depends: There is no correlation between tubal sterilization and cessation of ovulation. In other words, tubal ligation does not stop you from ovulating. It is debated if tubal sterilization affects ovarian blood supply and hence eventually the function of the ovaries which includes ovulation ...Read more
I've had a tubal ligation four years ago. I'm now 29 years old and after the procedure i've had a problem with acne. I've experienced other things too?
Unrelated: There is no reason a tubal ligation would have anything to do with return of acne.While many look at this as a teen issue, some have acne off & on well into their 30's and beyond. The issue is a chance association not a cause. Reversing the procedure would not trigger a cure that would not happen in time by chance alone. ...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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How can i find out if i had tubal ligation done 19 years ago...Im engaged and want to have a baby..
Records release: You need to execute a records release to any doctors or hospitals that you may have received care from in the past. An Operative report in those records will determine if the Fallopian tubes were in fact ligated or interrupted. If all else fails, a GYN MD can perform either a HSG dye study or a Laparoscopy that visualizes the Fallopian tubes for ligation. ...Read more
I got a tubal ligation 2 years ago and but now I want another child. They were cut and clamped not burned!?
I had a tubal ligation 7 years ago and now want another child. I can't afford a reversal or in vitriol. What can I do?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a tubal ligation 6 months ago but dr didn't tell me what kind of procedure he did and if it was an easy reversal what procd.Do dr use 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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Tubal vs essure: They both provide permanent sterilization but the tubal requires general anesthesia and surgery into the abdomen with incisions that have to heal. It is immediately effective. An essure can be done in the office under a local cervical block and has no incisions. It takes about 3 months to become effective. You have to do a simple test at 3 months to prove the tubes are blocked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes, but need help: A Pomeroy tubal ligation is a common way to "tie your tubes" at the time of a c/section. The tubes are tied with suture, a segment is cut out and sometimes the remaining ends are cauterized. The chance of getting pregnant is about 7.5/1000 (.75%). That is a very low chance. If you want to get pregnant, its still possible to get pregnant with help from a fertility specialist. Best wishes! ...Read more
