    Many women will report changes in their menstrual cycle after tubal ligation. Many times it is unclear if the tubal ligation is the direct cause. Often when women have a tubal ligation they stop birth control and are not pregnant and their bodies return to a default pattern…occasionally the tubal ligation can be the direct results and we will find scar tissue or endometriosis.

    I live in Minnesota and the closest Dr. that does tubal reversal is in Wisconsin (at least that’s what a Dr. here told me). It’s so expensive. I had my tubes tied after the birth of my third child almost 7 years ago. Ever since I had my tubes tied I have had horrible menstrual cycles. I get ovarian cysts frequently. My question is does the cysts and my issues with my menstrual cycles have any correlation to my tubal ligation? All of these issues started after my tubal ligation, whether or not it’s the cause is what I want to know.

    It should be safe but I am uncertain what you mean by pelvic reconstructive surgery. The umbilical hernia should not be a problem. You should send us your records so we can be more certain about what type of surgery you had during the pelvic reconstructive surgery.

    I was 23 when I had my tubes cut and burned, I am now 29. I recentlty got married and we want to have a baby but the problem other than the reverable is the at age 27 i had a pelvic reconstructive surgery and last month i had an umbillical hernia repair. Is it safe and possible to reverse my tubes, and if so do i have to have a c-section?

    We can certainly reverse your remaining tube and give you an excellent chance at becoming pregnant. Please give us a call at (919)968-4656 and we can help you get started. Your chances at pregnancy with one tube at the age of 35 after tubal reversal would be between 60-70%.

    I have 1 child and I miscarried fourteen years ago and had to have a tube removed. Which left me with only one and I decided to have that tube clamped. I am 36 and healthy (no drugs or drinking) and would like to have another child. What is the possibilty of having a tubal ligation reversable and a healthy baby?
