Is tubal ligation major surgery? How long to recover from it?

No if done in office. Tubal ligation (occlusion) can also be done in the office setting using a scope to look inside the uterus. Tiny devices can be placed into the fallopian tubes to block them. This can be done with local anesthesia, much like having a tooth cavity filled.
Yes & No. Tubal ligation requires either major surgery (laparoscopy/post-partum mini-laparotomy) or minor surgery (essure tubal implants). Here are links to resources (http://bitly. Com/wp1hdv). Laparoscopy tubals require 2 small incisions about 1-2 inches long at belly button and "bikini-line". Recovery is 2-7 days but totally normal feeling is 2-6 weeks. Reversals requested 2%, not easy with essure.
Ligation or essure. Tubal ligation is more than minor surgery + performed laparoscopically which requires general anesthesia, this can be quite major if you have extensive bowel adhesions. Essure, a fairly recent modality + an office procedure which has largely replaced tubal ligation + achieves similar end result of permanently obstructing fallopian tube. Small capsule device is passed via cervix + uterus.
No. Tubal ligation its an out patient procedure; most of the time its done using laporascopy procedure. And patient recover quickly and back to work in 2-3 days.

I had a tubal ligation and want to have a baby is there anyway to conceive without surgery or ivf...Please please help I want another baby!?

No. After having a tubal ligation the only way of reestablishing fertility is either having surgery to have the tubes put back together or have in vitro fertilization where fertilization occurs outside the body in a laboratory.
Embryo adoption. The chance of pregnancy 'on your own' is low but not zero without in vitro fertilization (ivf) to bypass your tubes, or a surgical tubal ligation reversal. A third option is embryo adoption, where embryos donated by another couple are placed inside your uterus - obviously there is no genetic connection with you or your partner.
