How to Get Pregnant After Tubal Ligation

Tubal ligation, or tying your tubes, is an effective form of preventing unwanted pregnancy. But is there a way to reverse the tubal ligation if a woman wants to get pregnant?

Tubal ligation is a permanent surgical procedure which consists in tying off the Fallopian tubes in order to prevent the egg from reaching the woman’s uterus where it can be fertilized. While this extremely effective method of birth control seems as the best solution in certain periods of a woman’s life, its reversal may often be necessary.

What is tubal ligation reversal?

Fortunately, this can be achieved with another surgical procedure called tubal ligation removal. If a woman changes her mind, and decides she wants to become pregnant, tubal ligation reversal is possible, and it can effectively ensure fertility restoration.

Tubal ligation is the safest way to prevent unwanted pregnancy. However, the possibility of reversing it may also be important to many people these days. Fortunately, this is possible even in cases when the sterilization procedure involves tubal rings or tubal clips. In fact, this actually involves the most successful rate of fertility following the reversal microsurgery which entails the recuperation of those portions of fallopian tubes left behind when clipped.

What are my chances of getting pregnant?

The tubal ligation reversal procedure is associated with a subsequent average pregnancy rate of 75%; moreover, the percentage continues to increase every month, given the reopening of the tubes. Experts have shown that 98% of tubal ligation procedures are reversible, so that almost all women have the possibility to become pregnant following the ligation removal microsurgery.

The overall success of the tubal ligation repair varies among different female patients according to the type of tubal sterilization (tying and removing a segment of the fallopian tube, tubal clips or rings, electro-coagulation) and the status of the remaining segment of the tube, whether too short, completely removed, or diseased.

How does the reversal surgery work?

The reversal procedure is a minor surgery performed in an outpatient surgical facility, and furthermore, it is significantly cheaper compared to treatments using in-vitro fertilization. Therefore, the resection or removal of a portion of the tubes for the purpose of achieving effective birth control doesn’t actually affect a woman’s fertility, and should she decide to become a parent and undergo the reversal operation, it can be a complete success as long as at least two segments remain for the reconstruction process.

In order to reverse the tubal ligation, a specialized surgeon will remove the tied segments of the tubes, and realign the two portions to establish a complete tube. The recovery time following the tubal ligation removal technique is minimal, and the ensuing chances of having a baby are very satisfactory.

Increase your odds of getting pregnant

Getting pregnant after the tubal ligation removal procedure is directly connected with the restoration of a woman’s fertility which, in the long run, can be immune to any other methods of becoming pregnant, such as a single in-vitro fertilization that may or may not prove to be successful.

In addition to this minor surgery, in order to improve the chances of ultimately achieving the desired pregnancy, abdominal massage can help reduce the scar tissue of post-surgery tubes, and increase blood circulation, especially in the cases when only one fallopian tube is functional. Therefore, if you are ready to conceive, the tubal ligation removal procedure will ensure perfect fertility restoration almost in all cases, and aid you to become pregnant.

    I have had clamps on my tubes for almost 7 years. I now want them off to have another baby. What are my chances of having another baby?

    I had a tubal ligation 5 years ago during my c-section for my youngest daughter. I have had regular periods since then except for one or two months out of those 5 years. I am now 10 days late and I have every symptom (both the “usual” symptoms and the not so usual symptoms). I don’t have the pain that people describe during an ectopic pregnancy. I have taken several pregnancy tests and they have all come back negative. I have an appointment today but I’m kind of freaking out right now.

    I’m 39 and looking at tubal ligation reversal hopefully in September 2014. My tubes where clips and done 2011/2002 A few consultant’s have said ivf would be best. One consultant has said just over 50% chance it would work with ligation reversal. Could you tell me what you think thy chances are of pregnancy.

    I have had 2 etopics, both removed, my doctor said I had alot of scar tissue so it would be hard for me to conceive naturally and for the last 3 years I haven’t gotten pregnant, taken the tests, and became heart broken, but my husband and I are trying just to see if there is a chance, last month, I had alot of nausea and symptoms, then started my cycle. This month is totally different, now I have what looks like breast milk coming from both breasts. Can someone please help and explain this to me? Thank you!

    I had my tubes tied on 3/13/14 and had regular periods. Now I am 10 days late, tired, crabby, and nauseous. I am scared of having a ectopic pregnancy and too scared to take a pregnancy test. What should I do? or What do you think may be?

    if you do not mind me asking what is the estimate praise of heaven Tues reversal my husband and I would like to have a child together and this is my third time that I’ve had symptoms are been late and no go. Except this time my period was only 2 to 3 days very light and for the last two weeks I was very nauseous I get in the vehicle and I feel nauseous inmediately I thought it was motion sickness all of a sudden. But I’ve been a complete bitch very emotional I have a hard time sleeping at night because I have severe pain in my chest I think it’s heartburn I took a pregnancy test from the dollar store and a very very faint thin blue line came up. What are the chances that it is a positive I did not use morning urine but I would like to know how much it cost and how long after you had the procedure done did you get pregnant. Congratulations
