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?

Regular intercourse: You should have regular intercourse at the time of ovulation, just as you would if you had not had the tubal and reversal.

How is it possible to have a child after a tubal ligation and a Novasure procedure? I am remarried and we would love to have a baby together.
IVF: On rare occassions, tubals can be reversed. Much higher success with IVF (in vitro fertilization), where eggs are retrieved from mom and then fertilized in the lab with dad's sperm and then implanted into the uterus. This bypasses the tubes so it doesn't matter if you've had a tubal. You need to sit down and have a nice consultation with a fertility specialist/clinic in your area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
