Unblocking Fallopian Tubes Is Possible

baby born after tubes were unblockedUnblocking fallopian tubes is possible with tubal surgery at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center.

Women will frequently travel to have tubal surgery with Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

These two tubal surgeons have performed over 10,000 surgeries to unblock blocked fallopian tubes on women from across the world.

One such woman who came to have her tubes unblocked traveled from Honduras Central America. Grazia and her husband Ronald traveled to the United States to have her burned tubes unblocked at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center.

Blocked Fallopian Tubes

Grazia traveled from Honduras to have tubal repair surgery. Grazia has been married to Ronald for ten years. This was their first marriage and neither of them have children. They decided they were happy together and they were not going to have children. Seven years into their marriage Grazia decided to have her tubes blocked by undergoing a tubal ligation procedure.

At the age of 31 Grazia had a tubal coagulation procedure to block her tubes.

Treatment For Blocked Fallopian Tubes

Gradually Grazia began to regret her decision to get her tubes blocked. She and Ronald had a change of heart and wanted to bring a child into their lives. Three years after her tubes were blocked, Grazia began looking into treatment for unblocking blocked fallopian tubes.

IVF or Unblocking Tubes?

Grazia looked into IVF (in-vitro fertilization) or surgery to repair her blocked tubes. She discovered IVF was expensive and seemed to be less successful than tubal repair surgery. Additionally tubal surgery would allow her to repair her tubes, correct her previous mistake, and have a chance at becoming pregnant each and every month.

Can Blocked Tubes Be Unblocked?

Her surgery lasted 74 minutes, the estimated blood loss was 75 milliliters (5 tablespoons), and her tubal lengths were 5.5 cm and 6.0 cm.

Based on the tubal reversal specialty center’s pregnancy statistics on tubal length, Grazia had a 70% chance of becoming pregnant after her burned tube reversal.

Pregnancy After Blocked Tubes

Grazia traveled back to the Honduras after her surgery. She quickly became pregnant after her tubes were unblocked. She had a healthy pregnancy and gave birth to a baby boy who she and Ronald named Luciano.

She recently sent us a photo with this simple message attached:

Luciano is now seven months old and we can´t get over the fact of what a true miracle he is in our
lives. We will forever be thankful for your accurate and successful intervention.
I will attach some photos of our precious baby,
Thanks again Dr. Monteith, we hope perhaps you will visit Honduras someday and
we can see you again…
Best Regards,
Graziamaria & Ronald

    I recommend a selective cannulization of the left tube to see if it is really open or closed. Your doctor can order this from a local radiologist.

    I had a Tubal reversal back in 2007, My tube lenghth for the left was 1cm proximal and 5cm of distal, but the right was not long enough to attach. So the Left fallopian tube was put back together, the post op notes say that it (left tube) was open and was free of any blockage. Months went by and still hadn’t became pregnant, after the first few months I went back to the surgeon and he told me I should have a HSG done. Went to have HSG done, and found out that my left tube did not have free spiil which means it was blocked. Is there anything else I could do besides IVF?

    Hi. My wife has had three IVF cycles which have all failed. We recently were advised that at least one tube is blocked / damaged and any IVF we do with our own eggs only has a 5% chance of success. As there is also a male fertility issue, is there any mileage in having the tube(s) repaired?

    If you can respond to my mailbox that would be appreciated as I only discovered this site by accident and may not come back to it.

    Mekasha – If you have had an HSG you can have the radiologist send me the images to review and if you have had a laparoscopy, I would also like to review that operative report. Then I will send you an email with my recommendations.

I started going to a specialist back in 2010 for about an year or so. they finally told me after a year that both my tubes where block and that they only way I could have a baby was throught IVF which cost a lot. they didn’t give us no other option. I really can’t afford that and was still looking for other options. I currently live in Virgina and just turn 30 so we were wanted to start back up in trying again. What options can you give us for unblocking my tubes natural first.

    Hello, I had the adeana procedure done 2 yrs ago. I had 4 children with my first husband. My current husband and I had 1 child together and decided we were done. We regret this choice as we would like one more child together. Is this type of reversal possible and if so, is it possible without having to have a c-section if reversed?
