How Would You Know If Your Tubes Had Become Untied
Pregnancy: Having tubal sterilization is not like tying your laces where they can be "untied". Tubal sterilization usually is performed by damaging a portion of the tube with electrocoagulation, placement of clip/ring, or removal of portion of the tube. When treatement failure occurs (~2% over 10-year period), it usually occurs as fistulas or small openings occur, not because the preocedure is reversed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Aka oviduct, uterine tube, or salpinx. It is basically a small tube connecting between the ovary and the uterus. This tube carries the eggs from the ovary area to the unterus.

Tubes . .: Technically speaking, you would not know, because the only symptom that your tubes had 'untied' would be if you got pregnant. The reason that tubes are tied in the first place is to prevent all future pregnancies, so very RARELY do they just 'untie' on their own, because the way it is done is very thorough. You would need to see your Ob/GYNE for further evaluation. Best of luck. ...Read more
Unintended pregnancy: Rationale for tying tubes (bilateral tubal ligation) is desired infertility aka permanent contraception.

Nope!: I assume you're asking if your tubal ligation (permanent birth control) can be reversed or undone during great sex. The answer is no, so go enjoy sex as much as you want, vigorous or otherwise. On the other hand, there is a known failure rate for tubal ligation, like any procedure, so while you can't "untie" your tubes, you can still get pregnant at 2-10 per 1, 000 women (http://goo.Gl/0r6s0w). ...Read more
Yes, not untied...: A big misconception with patients is that tubes are simply "untied". The procedure actually cuts out the scarred or blocked portion, the remaining edges are microsurgically connected & a good success rate is only > 70%. You need at least 3 cm of viable tube to work with and remember, any future pregnancies have to be seen early d/t ectopic risks (tubal pregnancies). Take good care of yourself. ...Read more
Reversal? see answer: A reversal of a previous Tubal is extremely rare to actually work, as the Original tubal is designed to Prevent pregnancy and if done correctly, leaves a minimal chance of a reversal procedure possibly working, so there is not a guarantee it would be successful. Discuss with your Dr. IVF is certainly more likely to work but is costly. Your insurance carrier may play a role in the decision too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
