How successful is a tubal ligation reversal & is there a time restriction on when it is best?

Varies: There is no specific time restriction, it works as well sooner and later. results vary with "how" the ligation was down. Generally use of clips (Hulka, Filshie) or rings (Yoon, Fallope) give the best reversals, postpartum (Pomeroy) type ligations are often also very good. Anything involving cautery ("burning") usually will give a less good result. ...Read more

I had a tubal ligation in 2004 and my periods usually last 6 days but this time it's slowing down pretty quick. What could be wrong?

Probably nothing: Menstrual cycle variation is normal, especially after age 35. If still uncertain, perform a pregnancy test now and in 1 week. If negative, cycles will usually return to normal. If positive, see your doctor immediately, due to the high risk of a life-threatening ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more

Ever since I've had my tubal ligation I've been in horrible pain. Every time I ovulate or have my period the pain is unbearable. What can i do?

Talk to your doctor: While you could have some scar tissue from the tubal ligation causing pain, it is more likely that your previous contraceptive was treating the pain and your problem now isn't the surgery but the fact that you have stopped that contraceptive. Your doctor should be able to make some suggestions for treating the pain. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Since tubal ligation 9 mo. Ago, I have terrible cramping every time after sex lasting hours or days. Never did prior to this. What is cause of this?

Not normal: Should not be from the tubal, i assume it was laparoscopic, I do my transcervcal in the office by the essure method, safer , easier , less chance for problems, u need to see your gyn as u need an exam and ultrasound, u may need a diagnostic laparosocpy to see if u have adhesions or other problems. ...Read more
