Tubal With Falope Rings Very Emotional
Had tubal ligation with rings done 2 years ago? Is pregnancy possible? How reliable are the fallopian rings?
Pregnancy with tubal: Yes- Pregnancy is possible although not likely. During the tubal ligation the tubes are tied off. The egg still ovulates and sperm can still theoretically get by the tubes occlusion. It happens, but is very rare. For the "Falope" ring the failure rate is 17.7/1000 procedures according to one study by Peterson, et.al. in the Am J Obstet Gynecol. Apr 1996;174(4):1161-8; discussion 1168-70. ...Read more
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

Gained 50+ lbs severe pmdd & vulvar dermatitis after tubal ligation. Is there a such thing as "post tubal ligation syndrome?" treatment options?
Yes and no: The nih opines that tubal sterilization is not associated with an increased risk of menstrual dysfunction, dysmenorrhea, or increased premenstrual distress in women who undergo the procedure after age 30 years. There may be some increased risk for younger women, although they do not appear to undergo significant hormonal changes. I believe that more info is neded on women of your age. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why is nexplanon have a higher effectiveness rate then other birth control options or tubal ligation?
Highly effective: The main reason nexplanon is so effective is that it does not require that you remember to do something - the largest cause of birth control pill failure is forgetting to take the pill. Tubal ligation has a very low failure rate, but it is possible for the surgery to fail to close the tubes completely (the reported rate of failure of tubal ligation is up to 1 in 200 (1 in 2000 for nexlanon) ...Read more

What would be the odds of a woman who had uterus ablation, tubal ligation getting pregnant when she/partner used perfect withdrawal and Plan B in 24hr?
Very little chance: Tubal ligation by itself has a failure rate of 1in300 to 500. Ablation, while not a method of birth control destroys the lining where the pregnancy would implant. Unless your ablation/tubal ligation was done less than 6 weeks ago i would guess the chance is more like 1in500 or less. I tell my patients no unprotected sex until 6 weeks out from tubal ligation. ...Read more
Currently have nexplanon The weight gain side effects are too much. I have 2 bio kids and 4 step looking for a perm BC so tubal ligation or essure?
Yes, variable: Infertility and pregnancy loss are emotional, stressful events in anyone's life. I suspect that this is true for similarly emotional times in people's lives. I am not a psychiatrist but my experience suggests your suspicions are correct. We have great mental health professionals who can assist you dealing with these feelings. Hopefully, you had a successful outcome to balance the losses. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
