Tubal ligation is the surgical procedure of making a woman permanently infertile. However, sometimes women change their minds and seek to reverse the procedure to try to get pregnant after tubal ligation.

Mental preparation is a stage that precedes every important event in your life. You must get used to the idea of being pregnant again, and you must think about the fact that you have to undergo another surgical procedure, the reversal of the tubal ligation. Also, you must be mentally prepared in case you do not conceive in the first few months following the reversal procedure. Sometimes, getting pregnant again can take years.
You must talk to a specialist about the tubal ligation reversal, what this procedure involves and how much it costs. The specialist establishes if there are any risks for your health and recommends you the most suitable alternative. You have to think about the eventuality of spending a few days in the hospital, under strict medical supervision.
Getting pregnant after tubal ligation involves a lot of other things, besides a successful reversal procedure. For instance, you must have a healthy and balanced diet, which includes a lot of fruits and vegetables. Other sources of nutrients and vitamins, such as eggs, low-fat milk and cheese, lean meat and fish must also be consumed as part of your daily meals. This way, you prepare your body for the changes that occur during the pregnancy.
Eating healthy is sometimes not enough. You must also do some physical exercise, in order to maintain your body in the best of shape. Running or performing other types of low difficulty exercises for 30 minutes daily brings also important benefits for your general state of health.
The fertility of your partner is another important aspect when it comes to conceiving a child, so you have to convince him to do some things that are very helpful in increasing the sperm count naturally. Besides avoiding the excessive consumption of coffee and alcohol, he must also wear comfortable, loose underwear. Staying away from sports like baseball, cycling or horse riding and avoiding hot baths and saunas are other ways to improve fertility in men, so you must ask your partner to respect at least some of these recommendations.
Follow these pieces of advice and you will have better chances to conceive after tubal ligation.
