Can a person have a reversal done if they got their tubes burned?

Probably. It depends upon how much of your tubes were burned and how much damage was done. I had my tubes cut and burned...and ultimately had a reversal. I ended up with 4 & 5 centimeters left after the Tubal Reversal, and am currently pregnant and due in 5 weeks!

Can you donate eggs if you had a tubal ligation?

Yes you can donate after a tubal ligation (female sterilisation / tube tying). I have recently looked into this exact question myself. I found an organisation called 'The Egg Donor Centre' who answer the question. In their FAQ section this question is currently (2 March 2008) posed second on their FAQ list. They answer 'Yes - Your eggs will be retrieved prior to being released in the fallopian tubes.' There many other interesting answers on the subject so I have pasted the link to their websites FAQ section for you. http://theeggdonor.com/egg_donor_faqs.html Hope this helps.

My dr said having tubes tied and clipped burnt and tied is the same success rate you think he just tied mine you don't know and you are kinda wondering if you'll ever be able to get pregnant again?

My mothers (key word, lol) were tied, but not clipped and burnt. They can come un-done, medically and naturally, although not very common.

Why do you have to take birth control after a tubal pregnancy post tubal ligation?

You have to take birth control because, if you got preg. once after tubal, then it means the tubal failed and you have a chance to become pregnant again. Of course, if you want to get preg. again, don't take the birth control!

Where do you start if you want to go about getting your tubes untied?

I started my search at my OB/GYN's office. She referred me to a few local doctors who can do Tubal Reversals, but they were all pretty expensive. So I took my search to the internet. There are several websites that list doctors by state. Go to Google or Yahoo and type Tubal Reversal in the search box. There are also several support sites on MSN and Yahoo Groups.

How can you get a loan for tubal reversal surgery?

You could go to a loan company for a general personal loan and use it for that purpose, but no one is going to give you a loan for that specific purpose. People don't get loans for medical treatments. If they did, then, a million people in this country wouldn't go bankrupt because they can't pay for medical treatments. That's why we need health care.

Interesting theory. Incorrect however. Given, I'm self employed and as I don't have health insurance, I get loans all the time for lots of things, Health Care included. I USED to have health insurance up until my wife and I had our 2 children. It became extremely obvious to me at that time that Health Insurance was actually a scam used by companies to bilk Billions of dollars per year out of the pockets of the hard working american middle class, AND the companies that put them to work. Nationalized health care should NEVER be implemented in the US period. It actually costs me LESS per year, MUCH less per year, to pay for medical treatment out of my own pocket as opposed to having a health care plan of any kind. The problem with health care in the United States is that people take advantage of the fact that NO ONE will be denied medical treatment for any reason. Many common ailments can be easily remedied with inexpensive over the counter remedies. One of the main causes of the health care problems facing this country is the apparent ignorance of it's own people. With the informational resources available today just about anyone can look up their symptoms online, and decide if they REALLY need to visit their doctor or not. Emergency Medicine of course is a whole other topic. You don't need to go to the Emergency room if you stub your toe, or have the flu. Wake up people. STOP feeding the perpetual money pit.

What does it mean if you stop getting your period after a tubal ligation?

After a tubal ligation, no matter which method, your body is adjusting to the changes. Hormones, ovulation, and even serotonin levels are affected by this surgery. Menstrual changes are common, especially if you have stopped your previous birth control method along with the surgery. It can take anywhere between 6 to 18 months for your body to readjust, and a "proper" cycle to resume. If you were always irregular, this can be even more so anticipated. For Depro-Provera users prior to TL, you may have irregular bleeding patterns. Speak to your doctor with any concerns, and always be alert to the possiblity of that 1% failure rate! Hope this helps. After a tubal ligation, no matter which method performed, your body is adjusting physically and emotionally. Hormones, ovulation, and even serotonin levels are affected by this surgery, sometimes causing what is referred to as "Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome". Menstrual irregularities are common, especially if you have stopped your previous birth control method along with the surgery. It can take anywhere between 6 to 18 months for your body to re-adjust, and a "normal" cycle to resume. If your cycles were irregular pre-surgery, this can be even more so anticipated and considered the norm. For those who used Depo-Provera as a form of birth control prior to your TL, you may have spotting for several days to weeks at at time after cessation of this method. Ultimately you know your body best and if you have any post-surgical concerns, see your Doctor right away. For all those ladies who are trying to conceive after a TL, I understand...I am 2 months post TL... but remember to be thankful for those we already have. Best regards and hopes for success to you all.

Can a woman of 40 have her tubal reversed to conceive and what are the chances of a healthy baby?

A tubal can be reversed, but it's about 8000 dollars and it's not a guarantee that it will be reversed successfully. The chances of a healthy baby depend on the woman and the mans health and every other factor that all women have.

How can you get pregnant without tubal reversal surgery?

Some data suggests that approximately 1 in 2000 tubal ligations may spontaneously reverse. More precisely described, sometimes the cut and closed (cauterized and or sutured) fallopian tube tissue ends aren't closed enough to stop the familiar path of a teeny, tiny, tenacious ovum or egg that follows a chemical trail to the uterin area during ovulation. If fertilization is facilitated in this unusual but possible scenario then (tubal ligation or not) pregnancy is certainly a potential outcome. Matthew David Black existencebeyondperception@msn.com
If the tubes were "banded" and not cut/burnt, the bands can loosen, opening the fallopian tube. This is pretty rare, and the likelihood of this happening depends on the material used.
You can't.

Has anyone suffered tremendous weight gain after a tubal ligation?

Since i had my last child and had the tubal i have had some major weight problems. I am having a lot of trouble losing the pregnancy weight and when i do the proper diet and exercise i still gain weight at times

I had my tubes tied in November of 2004. After my first child I lost all my weight and then some, my second child I lost 95% of my weight but actually gained weight after my 3rd which is also when my tubal was done. I completely regret my decision and hate the side effects. I would love to get it reversed since I'm easily 60 lbs heavier than I was before but it is so expensive... :(

Yes ,I too have had the same problem can't lose weight and I have used a personal trainer ,and ate a low calorie ,and low carb diet and can't lose weight either.My trainer is shocked ,and can't believe after all the hard work that I still can't lose weight. I had my tubal ligation ,and as soon as I had it done i gained weight the day after my last child was born. Was actually fatter after he was born ,and after I had tubal ligation done.Something is totally wrong cause I can't lose any weight no matter how much I exercise or diet.Sorry u r having the same problem as me and many other women .

You want a baby but your tubes are tied What do you do?

i am not sure the name of the procedure, but my mothers tubes were tied after giving birth to me (they were litarly tied not cut as they do now in medicine) and she paid about $3500 and had the procedure reversed to have another child 4 years ago, now i have a beautiful little sister, so if you have the money and wish for a child that's the way to go. i do believe that it depends on how your tubes were actually tied, i am 21 so the procedure to tieing tubes has probably changed since then but its worth the try, best of luck to you

Are night sweats common if you've recently had a baby and a tubal ligation?

Night sweats are most often associated with Thyroid conditions. If you have any questions concerning the possibility of a thyroid problem you will need to have your doctor run tests for both thyroid and TSH. On the other hand, If your estrogen levels have dropped because of the tubal ligation or because of the recent childbirth you might not have any symptoms for several weeks. Again, this is something to discuss with your doctor on your next visit.

If you can't get help financing tubal reversal because of your credit being so poor are there other alternatives?

Answer

I don't know about financing options for an elective surgery, but if your creadit history is poor and you don't have a lot of savings currently, you may want to consider the cost of raising a child and whether or not it's a realistic idea.

I can't help with the financing issue but I thought this answer was rude. For raising a child most expenses come to you one at a time $100 here $100 there. But the cost of a tubal reversal is a fee you have to pay all at once, and really not many people these days have $7500 laying around. I have 2 children of my own and I had a tubal and want a reversal. I have never had to borrow money or anything for my 2 kids I have raised them and paid for everything on my own. My mom and family of course bought them presents for their birthdays and Christmas and stuff. But the regular day to day living, doctors, day cares, and private school I pay. I too have poor credit and can not get mine reversed (because I'm about to marry a great man I met a year ago)either due to not having $7500 laying around. While the cost of the child is great, it is more attainable than paying a large sum at once.

There is a facility in North Carolina that does strictly reversals. They have a payment option for those of us who do not have loads of cash just lay'n around. You have to pay in advance of course. Kinda like a Christmas savings account you cannot withdraw from until It's time to go shopping. It's about $5400.

Does minnesota state insurance cover tubal ligation?

It is covered under MA, only after the age of 21. However, you have to find a doctor/hospital that takes MA, and so far, I have found none that take MA who do tubal ligations.
