Babies After Tubes Untied Through Reverse Tubal Ligation
What Is Reverse Tubal Ligation?
Women who want a baby after tubal ligation can get their tubes untied. Terms that people use to refer to this procedure are reverse tubal ligation, tubal ligation reversal, or more simply, tubal reversal.
What Doctor Gets Tube Untied on a Daily Basis?
Dr. Gary Berger is a tubal reversal doctor who specializes exclusively in procedures that untie tubes. Dr. Berger created the first and at present, the only existing tubal reversal clinic - Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center. This is the best place for women who want to become pregnant after tubal ligation to get their tubes untied. Dr. Berger performs this procedure for four patients each day, 5 days a week. Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center publishes information each week about pregnancies after tubal reversal procedures performed there.
Why Do Women Want to Get Their Tubes Untied?
One of the questions Dr. Berger asks his patients is what made them decide to have their tubes untied. In answering this question, women describe the circumstances which led them to want another child after tubal ligation. Most situations involve divorce and remarriage. Often the husband has no children, and the couple would like to have a family of their own.
Some couples already have children together but realize that having a tubal ligation was a decision that they regret. Death of a child, religious considerations, or the desire to relieve symptoms of "Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome" are other reasons for wanting to get tubes untied.
Pregnancy After Tubes Untied
Although there are many websites and articles that discuss reverse tubal ligation, information about success rates is stated only in vague or general terms. To make a fully informed decision about tubal reversal, women should have accurate and detailed statistics about pregnancies from a doctor’s own patients, not a statistic taken from some other source. Otherwise, it is meaningless.
Pregnancy Reports from Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center
Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center provides information each week about pregnancies as they occur and are reported by patients. When Dr. Berger’s patients becomes pregnant, they can submit a Pregnancy Report Form to alert the Tubal Reversal Center staff of their pregnancy. This enables Dr. Berger and his nurses to monitor the results of the Early Pregnancy Protocol that is recommend to patients..
Each week, the new pregnancy reports are tabulated and listed in the Weekly Pregnancy Reports forum on the Tubal Reversal Message Board. Between 10 to 20 new pregnancies are reported each week by Dr. Berger’s tubal reversal patients. This is more than reported in a year by other doctors who perform tubal reversal procedures! Additional information about the new pregnancies is shown in the Pregnancy Announcements section of the Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center website. A complete statistical analysis of the outcome of all tubal reversals is published as the Tubal Reversal Study Report each year.
