Overweight And Tubal Reversal
Had tubal ligation 10 years ago, and wanting to explore tubal ligation reversal. I'm 35 and in good health, but what would my estimated success rate b?
It varies: You have maybe 5 years of fertility, and it depends on how the tubal ligation was done, how much of your tubes remain, and the skill of the surgeon. There are very few specialists any more who do this surgery since in vitro methods have largely replaced it. These procedures need to be done on a regular basis to maintain the necessary skills. A poorly done job is worse than not doing it all. ...Read more
Depends: Depending on the type of tubal ligation was done. Because the tube is readily accessible, the physician will usually cut, tie and burn a large segment.

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.

Had tubal reversal tubes back together dr said length tubes were short but good flow chances of pregnacy 35 yr old healthy female ovulation on top?
How long?: Your chances depend on many things besides tubes, but if you were normally fertile before the ligation let's assume you still are. The chance of pregnancy goes down as the tubes get shorter. How long are your tubes? Studies show that with a tubal length of 4 cm or less, pregnancy rates are zero. ...Read more

I'm a 42 yr old female, that desire to become pregnant. I had a laparoscopic tubal ligation with fulguration of the tube 1.5 cm (bilateral) in Aug 1999, is it possible to get a tubal reversal?
