I have a friend who tragically lost a child in a car accident several years ago and because she is still in her late 30s would like to try for another baby. The friend had a tubal ligation many years back and is now considering have this procedure reversed. She's determined that having the tubal ligation reversed will likely be less expensive and more successful than attempting In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
If you or a loved one is considering having a tubal ligation reversed, there are a few considerations to think about:
Pregnancy after a tubal ligation reversal shows a slight increase in the chance of miscarriage whether this is due to the reversal procedure itself or the result of the age of most reversal patients is unclear. The miscarriage rate reported in the general population ranges from approximately 20% to 50% depending on a woman's age and the extent of early pregnancy testing.
