Can eggs be harvested after tubal fulguration?

Yes, if only 1 side: If the procedure is done because of infection/cancer on one side, then the other is open which can be used for harvest. If your procedure is done for purpose of birtn control (tuboligation), then you can't harvest the eggs---the gates are sealed! tubal reversal usually cost 6-10 grands and success is not guaranteed. Consult your doc..Good luck. ...Read more

Maybe , maybe not: U can do a laparoscopic sterilization by cautery or clips or other ways, either way is old fashioned, the newer safer way that I do 99.9% of all my sterilizations on my patients is in office - adiana( for about another month, until i run out of catheters) or in office essure- both are easy, my pts stay awake , takes 5 minutes, no cutting, only miss 1/2 day of work, u can read about it online. ...Read more

Tubal Test?: I believe you are referring a test to see if your fallopian tubes are patent ( chromopertubation). If done during the laparoscopy you will be under anesthesia and you wont feel it.
