The process of reversing tubal ligation so that a woman becomes fertile again after tubal ligation surgery is a long one.
Initially, women who express a desire to become pregnant again and have their sterilization surgery reversed will have to pass a series of tests to determine that their ovarian reserve is good and that the tubal ligation performed on them is reversible.
In the next step, the patient will undergo a study of her tubes to determine if they can be repaired and if they will be permeable again after the operation.
Through these studies, the doctor will be able to determine that the patient is suitable to have the tubal ligation reversed.
During the operation, the surgeon will cut the area of the tube that is tied, cauterized or obstructed so that both healthy ends of the tube can be sutured and the patency of the tube restored.
Two weeks after the operation, the patient will be completely recovered and will be able to return to her normal life.
However, it will not be until 3-4 months later that a study of the permeability of the tubes will be carried out again by means of a histosalpingography to evaluate the success of the operation.
