What is the best way to get pregnant after tubal ligation?

  1. monica13

    hi ladies,
    i got my tubal ligation operation some years back and i think i had not cleared with this business. at the moment, i really want to conceive after around 6 years.
    the problem is i do not know how to go about this whole scenario. i hear there are clinics where i can get induced to produce eggs. or should i just opt for the surrogacy solution which one of my friends clinic has given as an option. please help.

  2. Hi, luv, I understand your concerns. The chances of becoming pregnant after tubal ligation are small – around one in 200. The good news is that women who have undergone tubal ligation no longer have to just keep trying and hope against hope. They can turn to IVF for help. My Doctor explained that tubes can be either cauterized, cut, clamped or a small portion of the tubes removed. The end result is the same – The egg is still released as normal every month. but it does not reach the uterus. Instead, it cannot travel through the fallopian tube and is reabsorbed into the body. In IVF the resulting eggs are removed from the patient’s body, fertilized with the sperm of her partner or a donor. And the fertilized egg is implanted in her uterus. This means that there is no need to reverse the tubal ligation. Though that is possible in some cases. Tubal ligation is no longer the permanent barrier to becoming pregnant that it once was. With suitable medical advice and experience,IVF can be used to start or expand a family for every woman in the same boat.

  3. Hi Monica

    I’m sorry to hear this. However, there is still a chance to get pregnant despite having your tubes tied. That being said, your pregnancy probabilities also depend on the type of tubal ligation performed. If a reversal was not technically possible anymore, you still could opt for IVF.

    For more information, I recommend you read the following posts: Is It Possible to Reverse Tubal Ligation? and What Is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)?

    Hope this helps,

    all the best.
