Yes,: Yes, a tubal ligation can be reversed. But at age 47 years old you are not likely to have viable eggs in your ovaries. The chances of natural conception and carrying a pregnancy to term at this age would be so low, that I don't know why you would consider this surgery. Mother nature only designed us to bear children until a certain age. ...Read more

Absolutely: The length of time your tubes are tied is a zero factor. Success depends on three factors: 1. Skill of the surgeon, 2. Length of tubal segments remaining, and 3. Age of the patient. In skilled hands, the surgery is safe and the risk of an ectopic is less than 5%. An operative report may help but is not always "accurate". Ivf is also an option but generally costs a lot more. Hope this helps. ...Read more
