FAQs – Tubal Ligation Reversal and Pregnancy

What tests do I need before I can have my tubal ligation reversal done?

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.

How big will the incision be?

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.

How soon can I go back to work after tubal reversal surgery?

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.
