Depends: The chances of successfully reversing a tubal ligation depend on how they were ligated ("tied") in the first place. Ligations that use clips can sometimes be successfully reversed. However, tubal ligation is generally understood to be a form of sterilization. I recommend consulting your ob/gyn and considering alternate forms of having children (e.g., in vitro fertilization, adoption, surrogate). ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Reversal of tubal: You have two options. 1) have surgery to reconnect the segments of your fallopian tubes. tubal reanastamosis. 2) IVF - in vitro fertilization (bypasses the tube). I would discuss options with either your gyn or a specialist in reproductive endocrinology. ...Read more

I had my tubes cut how can I get pregnant again?

See your OB: preferably the OB who did your tubal ligation. Sometimes this can be reversed by re-attaching the tubes surgically, but success rates vary from 20-70% depending on what method your OB used "tie the tubes". Other factors include your age, and whether there was damage from infection or scarring to the tubes etc. If reversal is not possible, then in-vitro fertilization would be necessary. ...Read more

There : There are two options. One is to have a surgery to try to put your tubes back together. The other option is to do in-vitro fertilization which does not require a surgery. There are pros and cons of each approach. The first question is whether or not it is possible to do the surgery. This depends on the method used to "tie" your tubes. Some techniques are more destructive than others. Getting your hands on the report of the operation and perhaps even the pathology report is important. An experienced surgeon that does this surgery can then review the report and let you know what the prognosis is for success. Assuming that the surgery has a reasonable chance of success, the question then becomes one of time to pregnancy, cost and number of children wanted and your ovarian reserve. In general the time to pregnancy is longer for surgery vs ivf. The cost is usually less for surgery compared to ivf. If you want multiple children over time then surgery is a better option. If you want only one more child then ivf might be a better option. Finally, your age and ovarian reserve (the number of good eggs you have left) is very important. If you are older and running out of eggs then ivf might be a better option than surgery. The best thing to do is to make an appointment to see a reproductive endocrinologist and bring your operative report. They will be better able to counsel you after reviewing that and perhaps testing your ovarian function. ...Read more

I had my tubes cut tied and burnt can I still get pregnant i asked one dr. They said ya and then another said no can I still get pregnant?

Yes you can,not easy: Yes dr. Correct. There are 2 ways, firstly, in-vitro fertilization (ivf) in which your eggs are harvested, then are fertilized in a dish and then implanted into your uterus after developing into embryos. Secondly, but with lower success rate, fallopian tubes can be reconnected. Both methods are very expensive, rarely covered by insurance & success rate well below 100%. Good luck. ...Read more

Even though I got my tubes tied can I still get pregnant if I still get my periods?

No: There is no relationship between having your tubes tied and your periods. Having your tubes blocks the passage way between the ovary and the uterus. This blocks a one cell egg from reaching a one cell sperm. Your hormones continue just how they were before so your periods will not change. ...Read more

Fertile times: You are fertile for about 5 or 6 days per month, so these are the targeted times you need to have intercourse. Assuming that you ovulate on d13 or 14, then your fertile times are from day 10 to 15. You count your days starting with your first full day of your period - don't start counting after you finish your period. ...Read more

I am so confused..Ihad an abortion 5 months ago now i trying again and my doctor told me I have pcos. Can i ever get pregnant again? Will i miscarry?

Hard to say.: Having a diagnosis of pcos doesn't mean that you can't get pregnant. As far as having a miscarriage, you can't predict what will happen in a future pregnancy, however, the most common cause of an early miscarriage is a chromosomal abnormality. Many women with pcos are able to conceive and have uncomplicated pregnancies. ...Read more

After 5yrs can your tubes come untied im asking because i had my tied 5yrs ago but not i hate that i listened cause i want a baby with my husband?

No they can't: Tubal ligations fail roughly one out of every 100 times - the tubes don't grow back together. They do not become untied. If you want another baby you need to see a specialist for either tubal reversal (BTA) or IVF. Good wishes. ...Read more
