Tubal Ligation Reversal
Tubal Ligation & Reversal Q&A with Dr. Amos E. Madanes
What is a tubal ligation?
Many women have their tubes tied to eliminate the need for birth control when they are done having children by stitching, cutting, slipping, or banding shut the fallopian tubes.”
What is a tubal ligation reversal?
There is a procedure to reverse your tubal ligation if you experience a change of heart and want more children. The tubal reversal procedure undoes a tubal ligation by untying, reopening, or reconnecting your fallopian tubes.
To determine if you are a candidate for tubal ligation reversal, Dr. Madanes considers:
- Overall Health
- Current or Past Gynecological Disorders
- Previous Surgeries
- Pregnancy History
- What kind of tubal ligation you had
Dr. Madanes confirms there are no underlying issues that could prevent you and your partner from getting pregnant after a reversal by ensuring your fallopian tubes are properly functioning and ordering a semen analysis for your partner or donor.
What are my changes of becoming pregnant after a tubal ligation reversal?
Nevertheless, success depends on a few variables, including your age, the amount of scar tissue present, and your partner’s sperm quality. Should you have trouble getting pregnant, in-vitro fertilization (IVF) is another available option.
Dr. Madanes will provide an honest, realistic assessment of whether tubal ligation reversal is the best option for pregnancy. Schedule an appointment by calling the Midwest Fertility Center or using the online booking tool.
