Is it possible to have a baby after reversal tubal ligation?

Is it possible to have a baby after reversal tubal ligation?

Depends: Fertility can be obtained after a tubal ligation either through surgical repair (if amenable to reversal) or through ivf (tubal bypass). Tubal reversal success will depend on health of the tubes as well as chances to conceive overall. Ivf does not require tubes and therefore success will depend on the age of the female as well as presence of other infertility factors. ...Read more

What is a pomeroy tubal ligation? Can I still have a baby after the procedure?

What is a pomeroy tubal ligation? Can I still have a baby after the procedure?

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

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

Tubal and pregnancy: Pregnancy after sterilization will involve either surgery of IVF.

None of the options are cheap. ...Read more

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 more

I want 2 have another  Baby I had a tubal  ligation I had a laparoscopy I wanted to know can I still have a baby I'm 24?

Yes but...: In brief... Your ovaries still work,there is just no "road" for the oocyte to get fertilized by the sperm. What this means is you likely would need an alternate method to get an oocyte, fertilize it and implant it in your uterus. ...Read more

Embryo adoption: The chance of pregnancy 'on your own' is low but not zero without in vitro fertilization (ivf) to bypass your tubes, or a surgical tubal ligation reversal. A third option is embryo adoption, where embryos donated by another couple are placed inside your uterus - obviously there is no genetic connection with you or your partner. See a reproductive endocrinology / infertility or rei specialist. ...Read more

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 more

Could you tell me what are my chances of having a baby after having a tubal ligation reversal?

Could you tell me what are my chances of having a baby after having a tubal ligation reversal?

Many factors: Your chances are based on several factors, including your prior fertility, the tubal status after repair as well as presence of any male factor fertility issues. The biggest factor is age of the female partner. At age 48, your fertility declines significantly making it very difficult to conceive spontaneously even if you had not had a prior tubal ligation. Please see a fertility specialist. ...Read more

I had my tubes ligated a year ago and i want to have another baby, I am 30 years old and i want to know if reversal tubal ligation is an option?

Test tube pregnancy: You can have the tubal ligation surgically reversed. That involves a risk of around 50% for a tubal pregnancy. Or you can have your eggs fertilized with your husband's sperm in a test tube. The costs for that are in all likelihood lower than for the surgery and the risk for tubal pregnancy is extremely low. ...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 more

Your surgeon should they to get your op note and tell you what chances you have.

In 09 i had a thermal ablation and a tubal ligation. My cycle never stopped can I have a child if I have a tube reversal?

Very difficult: When you undergo endometrial ablation, the procedure causes scarring in your uterus making it very difficult for an embryo to implant in your uterus. While tubal reversal and ivf are effective in helping you get pregnant after a tubal, it would be unlikely to work in your situation. ...Read more

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. However, reversal caries the risk of a tubal pregnancy due to the scar in the middle of your tube, so you will need closer follow up with your obstetrician. ...Read more
