There are many cases of women having normal (uterine) pregnancies after having their tubes tied, while their tubes are STILL tied. An ectopic pregnancy, is a pregnancy within the fallopian tube-this can happen to a woman who does, or does not, have her tubes tied, as well as a woman who have never been pregnant before or who has had normal pregnancies in the past.

However, woman who have had a tubal ligation reversed are at higher risk for ectopic pregnancies as her fallopian tubes will have scarring and may not be as 'free-flowing' as before the tubal ligation. This risk is especially high immediately following the reversal (for up to 60 days, while healing), as the tubes themselves are swollen due to the recent procedure. However, it is not as high of a risk as some believe. Many women go on to have a normal pregnancy.

Many doctors recommend performing reliable birth control methods during this time to lessen the risk of ectopic pregnancy,as ectopic pregnancies can irreversibly damage the fallopian tube and if left undetected cause death.

Invitro fertilization is possible also, but it is more expensive. Tubal reversals can cost 5-7,000 and cycles are much pricier with the fertilization. There is also a charge for EACH cycle.

There are a lot of health insurance that do not cover tubal reversal because it is an elective procedure, however it looks like Cigna does cover tubal reversal.

Yes. Your options are in-vitro fertilization or tubal reversal surgery. Please do your research on both in order to choose the option that is best for you.

Tubal reversal success depends on two main factors: type or tubal ligation and the age of the woman at the time of tubal reversal surgery. The tubal reversal success rate can be as high as 80% for women who are under the age of 30 and also for women who have had tubal clip or tubal ring type tubal ligations. The tubal reversal success can also be as high as 30-50% for women over the age of 40 or those who have had unknown types of tubal ligations. Even among women over the age of 40 or women with unknown types of tubal ligations approximately 1 out of 3 women will become pregnant.

Yes, a tubal reversal can be done on the NHS. The NHS will cover almost anything health-related.

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.

Tubal reversal after tubal ligation does not have a high success rate. The most common way of modern tubal ligation is to burn the ends of the tube and it is not very successful with reversal.

No insurance companies will cover the cost of a tubal reversal. This is an out of pocket procedure if you wish to have it.

A tubal reversal is a surgical procedure where the initial tubal sterilization (aka tubes tied) is reversed and an attempt is made to make the woman fertile again.

You have two options available yo you. The first is tubal ligation reversal and the second is IVF or in vitro fertilization. Many times couples will opt for the the IVF due due the fact that many in the medical field are not that aware of tubal reversal surgery. IVF can be very expensive and may not work with the first attempt. Many times couples are just unaware of the pregnancy success rate with tubal reversal. If you would like the pregnancy success rate just search "Tubal Reversal Pregnancy report 2009".
