If you want to reverse your tubal ligation, contact us. We can give you more information on pregnancy rates following our affordable tubal reversal procedure.
In general, only a recent semen analysis (within 1 year) from your current partner is needed. If possible, a copy of the operative report and pathology report from your tubal ligation surgery should also be given to your doctor so that the most appropriate tubal reversal approach can be planned. If you have had a fimbriectomy performed, a hysterosalpingogram (x-ray of the tubes) may be helpful.
The incision is approximately a four to five centimeter (2”) “bikini” incision just inside the pubic hairline. We use suture to close the skin, which is reabsorbed by the body over six to eight weeks.
This depends on what you do for a living. In general, most patients who have jobs which are sedentary and do not involve heavy lifting, can return to work in five to ten days. If you have a more rigorous job, ask your doctor what is appropriate for your situation.
You should arrange a post-op visit approximately two weeks after we reverse tubal ligation, so that the findings and future treatment plan can be reviewed. Certainly, if you have any problems prior to that visit, you should call your doctor.
You can attempt to become pregnant the next cycle after tubal reversal surgery. Pregnancy rates vary, depending on the method of tubal ligation originally performed and the age of the patient.
Most tubal ligation reversal patients achieve pregnancy within six months of surgery. However, pregnancy can occasionally take as long as one year.
Tubal pregnancy is possible, but unlikely. The incidence of ectopic pregnancy following reverse tubal ligation is three to five percent. If you are at least two days late for your menstrual period after your reversal, you should call our office for a pregnancy test.
