First of all, she has to make sure that her tubes aren't damaged. Second, the reversal is just as risky as major surgery. As far as the sex drive that shouldn't change. Now does she have clamps on her tubes or did she have a regular tubaligation?

Pregnancy after tubal ligation is very rare. Tubal ligation has less than a 2% failure rate and even if you do get pregnant without reversal surgery you are more likely to have an ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy is very dangerous and you should see a Dr immediately if you feel that you may be pregnant.

Can you get preg after tubal ligation?

Yes, it is possible to get pregnant after a tubal ligation. In rare instances the tubal ligation does not work and you may get pregnant but the instance of ectopic rate is very high and a doctor should be consulted right away. IVF is also available for those who want to conceive after a tubal ligation. This can be very expensive and many cannot afford. Tubal ligation reversal surgery is also an option. As proven in the Tubal Ligation Reversal Pregnancy Report 2009 this treatment has a better overall pregnancy success rate. Not only is it less taxing to the woman's body it is less expensive.

Although natural pregnancy could occur it is very slim. If it does happen naturally there is a very good chance that it would be ectopic. The most natural way to have a child after having a tubal ligation is with tubal ligation reversal. Surprising to many is the fact the tubal reversal has a better pregnancy rate than the alternative treatment of IVF. Not only does tubal ligation reversal have a better success rate it is more natural and less expensive than the alternative.
