Had tubal ligation 10 years ago, and wanting to explore tubal ligation reversal. I'm 35 and in good health, but what would my estimated success rate b?

It varies: You have maybe 5 years of fertility, and it depends on how the tubal ligation was done, how much of your tubes remain, and the skill of the surgeon.
