What would happen if you took fertility pills after you had your tubes tied?

What would happen if you took fertility pills after you had your tubes tied?

Fertility Drugs &BTL: The fertility drugs should not cause a problem other than the same risk of side effects as anyone else. I am not sure why you would be taking fertility drugs when you had a btl. One potential reason is a Clomid (clomiphene) challenge test to evaluate your fertility potential before ivf or reversal surgery. Regardless, you should question more the reason for the drug rather than the side effects :). ...Read more

Consider your facts: You might be able to have your eggs harvested at a fertility center, fertilized with hubbies sperm and have an embryo inserted in your womb, bypassing the tubes. There is no guarantee it would work and would be expensive. If you are set on the idea you need to come up with a way to pay for it along with money to feed, clothe and educate another kid to adulthood. Sounds like a problem. ...Read more

Can do that if you have your tubes tied? Ivf or reversal?

Tubal reversal: Your chance for success for either a reversal or ivf depends on the type of surgery and your egg quality. I would recommend checking your day 2/3 levels for fsh, Estradiol and anti-mullerian hormone. These tests would give some assessment of your ovarian function today and whether it would be worthwhile to consider the surgery or ivf. Still, ivf would allow you a better chance for success. ...Read more
