I'm having pelvic pain, dizziness, nipple sensitivity, and flutters. My tubes are tied, what could be the causes of this problems?

See a doctor: If pain gets worse then go to ER. Without asking other questions or examination, I am unable to say for sure. Nothing is 100% and one can still get pregnant with a tubal. If you have had a tubal ligation then you are at increased risk of tubal (ectopic) pregnancy. Because of the dizziness and flutters you are better off getting checked out sooner than later ...Read more

Don't know but it's: Not your tubes. Missed a period? If so, get a home pregnancy test. If you've not missed a period you're not pregnant. There's a lot of viral shtuff going around the USA these days. Maybe you've got a bug? If you're feeling worse by 2morrow call your DOC. Maybe the Super Bowl will cure you? Seen any of the ads yet? If those don't chase the viral blues away then, I dunno- tough bugs I guess! ...Read more

My tubes have been tied for 9 years and now I feel flutters in my lower stomach? My cycle haven't been on in 3 months.

Pregnancy Testing: We live in a world now where symptoms are not the way pregnancy is diagnosed. Flutters alone do not a pregnancy indicate. We live in a world where just down the street at almost any kind of store you can get a home pregnancy test. Go get tested. If you are pregnant then this is a big story in your life. If you are not pregnant then the flutters are gas in your intestines. ...Read more

Fresh eggs: It may be technically possible to get the tubes repaired but the problem is getting them to work again after they were tied. A fertility dr could help you ovulate & harvest some eggs through a laparoscope. Your husbands sperm could be added to the eggs and the resulting embryos placed into your womb. Difficult & expensive but possible. ...Read more

You: You have 2 basic options for achieving another pregnancy: surgical sterilization reversal and in vitro fertilization (ivf). You need to seek care from a reproductive surgeon or reproductive endocrinologist to determine the best option for you. Your dr. Will need to know the specific technique used to cut your fallopian tubes (ideally they would like to review the operation report), your general health and some reproductive fertility assessment tests.

Age
at 44, your success rate is extremely low - I am very sorry. The natural pregnancy rate in the us is about 0.5-1/1000 women. Ivf might be 1-2% (and only if your fertility tests are normal). Tubal reversal is likely a very poor option for you because it takes 12-18 months to achieve maximum pregnancy rates and you simply do have that much time. I am sorry that the stats for women your age are really poor. See link (http://www. Cdc. Gov/art/artreports. Htm).

Costs
sterilization reversal surgery can cost almost as much as in ivf cycle because the surgery requires anywhere from 2-4 hours to perform in the operating room is very expensive part of the hospital. The cost is from about $8, 000 - $15, 000. Ivf cycles often come with a refund guarantee but surgery never does - and this may make ivf cheaper.

Now assume all options on the table
sterilization reversal is one of the few reproductive surgeries that offers a high success rate. The surgery requires an operative microscope in order to remove the scar tissue around the ends of the tube that was cut and to sew them together. Not every surgeon is trained to perform microsurgery therefore you should seek out a surgeon with experience.

Ivf does not require that your fallopian tubes be open. Ivf is a good option for situations in which the sterilization surgery removed a large amount of fallopian tube, the woman's age is older than 35-38 years or or there is also a male factor involved such that the sperm has a low potential for fertilizing the egg. You did not state in your question whether this is the same partner that created the first children or whether you have a new partner and he may or may not be fertile.

In order to choose between these 2 treatment options, we need to determine that there would be sufficient tube length at the end of the sterilization reversal surgery to yield a high probability of success compared to ivf, that your fertility potential is not compromised suggesting a small window of opportunity to achieve pregnancy, that your husband has normally functioning sperm and that you are willing to invest at least one year after surgery to achieve pregnancy. Additionally, if you're a good surgical candidate and you want to have multiple children then surgery may be a better option because we cannot always guarantee that you will have extra embryos frozen after ivf. Ivf is so success these days that there is a trend away from surgery.

We often cannot reliably determine whether surgery or ivf would be the best option. We also need to look at the costs of both surgery and ivf and what insurance will pay plus whether you can have a refund guarantee for ivf.

In conclusion, you may have 2 options for achieving another child. I predict that when you meet with your physician, that the answer to some of these questions will become more obvious. I also think you will be steered to ivf if you are a candidate because it works faster. Good luck. ...Read more

Webmd: Tubal ligation is surgery to close or block a woman's Fallopian tubes so eggs released from the ovaries cannot enter the uterus and sperm cannot reach the egg. Tubal ligation reversal is surgery to reopen, untie, or reconnect a woman's fallopian tubes so she can become pregnant. Here is a link for more information.

I want to have another child but my tubes are tied, so what can I do?

IVF or Surgery: Ivf or surgery to reverse the tubal ligation both have a place. Ivf is often the best option because it has a higher success rate faster, and at a lower cost. If you are younger (<35) or want multiple preg. Then surgery may be a good choice. Not many of us do many surgeries because they are not covered by insurance. Ivf much better if you are older (over 35). See specialist. ...Read more

In vitro: You are basically describing in vitro fertilization (ivf) treatment. This can be an expensive treatment with costs approximately between 8-12 thousand dollars. This is not a technically difficult treatment but is intensive. If you are interested in that to get pregnant, see a fertility specialist for a detailed discussion and an evaluation. ...Read more

Hi my tubes are tied but I las little concerned my period Is 5 days late?

Pregnancy Test: The incidence of pregnancy after tubal ligation is still less than 1 in a 1000. However, it is not zero. Please do a pregnancy test. If negative, at least the concern of tubal pregnancy is resolved. Some women will have delayed cycles at least once in their life time without being pregnant. If test is negative, then just observe for a few weeks and see. Good Luck. ...Read more

Probably nothing.: These symptoms probably don't mean anything but I would take a home pregnancy test just to be sure you are not pregnant. I would then keep a calendar of your cycles for the next 3 months. Having an irregular cycle every now and then can occur and does not mean anything is wrong. ...Read more

Sterilization: The tubes are ducts that extend from near the ovary and go into the uterus. The egg moves don the tube and get fertilized in the lower 1/3 of the tube. Ligation is the slicing of the tube often the tube is coagulated and clipped as well. By interrupting this tube the path of the egg to the uterus is blocked making pregnancy improbable. ...Read more
