Chances of Getting Pregnant After Tubal Ligation Reversal

Chances of getting pregnant after tubal reversalWomen who think about having a tubal ligation reversal ask themselves, “What are the chances of becoming pregnant after tubal ligation reversal?”

These women may seek advice from their local doctors who are unfamiliar with tubal reversal surgery, some will see reproductive specialists who will have limited personal experience with sterilization reversal procedures but more experience with in vitro fertilization (IVF), and others will search the internet and be bombarded with advertisements and statements unsupported by facts.

Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center, the only medical center specializing exclusively in performing tubal ligation reversals, has the unique advantage of providing factual information about the chances of getting pregnant after tubal reversal based on extensive data. The tubal reversal doctors, Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith, have performed over 8,000 reversals of female sterilization. The Center maintains an extensive follow-up pregnancy database that provides the most accurate information on the chances of getting pregnant after tubal reversal that is available on the internet or in medical publications. The clinical practices at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center are an example of evidence-based medicine.

What Are The Chances of Pregnancy After Tubal Reversal?

Over the last several decades the practice of reproductive medicine has drifted towards in vitro fertilization. As a result, many reproductive specialists have limited experience with tubal ligation reversal.

General ob gyn doctors have almost no exposure to reversal tubal surgery and limited experience with women who have become pregnant afterward. The cumulative effect has been that many doctors are unfamiliar with tubal reversal surgery and the actual chances of getting pregnant after tubal ligation reversal.

Most of our patients become pregnant after tubal reversal. Our pregnancy statistics show that approximately 70% of all patients will report pregnancy. The success rate can be as high as 90% depending on the type of tubal ligation and age of the patient. In comparison, IVF pregnancy success is on average 30-35% for each IVF cycle.

    Usually it is something else but if you are pregnant see your docotor ASAP because it could be an ectopic pregnancy. A pregnancy test can give you your answer.

    We charge $5900 and most patients will have approximately a 70% chance of becoming pregnant. I am unaware of any tubal reversal providers in Minnesota and health insurance will not cover the cost of tubal reversal.

  5. Kati

    I have had my tubes tied for almost six years. I had them tied when I was 23, now I am almost 29. I had them tied because I had four children (two by each of my ex husbands). Now I am ready to settle down for good and start a new life with my boyfriend. And I was wondering: What is the cost? What are the chances? Does Minnesota State Insurance cover it? Do I have to pay out of pocket? I would like some help on these questions. Can I get it done in Minnesota or is it cheaper somewhere else? Please. He is the last of his bloodline, male, and he would like to keep the bloodline going. Help us please!

    Katie – Here is a link to our website page that has information on the prepayment plan for tubal ligation reversal at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center. We do this only in our outpatient facility and not in any hospitals. Most women are back to work and resume sexual activity within a week of the procedure. Other than avoiding heavy lifting for several weeks, there are no other restrictions on activity.
