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.

A Personal Choice, 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 A Personal Choice 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.

Chances of Becoming Pregnant After Tubal Reversal

The chances of becoming pregnant after tubal reversal depend on at least two known factors:

Patient age
Method of tubal ligation

Chances of Pregnancy After Tubal Reversal: Age

A woman’s age is a strong predictor of the chance of successful conception and pregnancy. In general, as age increases the risk of miscarriage increases and, therefore, the chance of a successful pregnancy decreases.

Pregnancy chances based on age after tubal reversal at A Personal Choice are approximately 80% for women under the age of 30 and 30% for women over the age of 40.

Chances of Pregnancy After Tubal Reversal: Tubal Sterilization Method

Tubal reversal provides excellent chances at pregnancyThe type of tubal ligation can impact the chances of becoming pregnant after a tubal ligation. Our pregnancy statistics demonstrate the chances of pregnancy based upon the type of tubal ligation.

Pregnancy chances after tubal reversal based on type of tubal ligation at A Personal Choice are: tubal ring or clip reversal 75%, tubal coagulation (burning) reversal 66%, and tubal ligation and resection (cutting) reversal 63%.

Chances of Pregnancy After Essure Reversal

The overall pregnancy rate after tubouterine implantation – the procedure required for Essure reversal is approximately 50%.

How Long Does It Take To Get Pregnant After Tubal Reversal?

Many of our patients ask, “How long does it take to become pregnant after a tubal reversal?”

The monthly probability of becoming pregnant after tubal reversal is approximately 8-10%. Since tubal ligation reversal provides this chance each month, the cumulative pregnancy rate continues to rise with increasing time and surpasses the pregnancy rate associated with treatment by IVF. Most of our patients become pregnant within eight months after tubal reversal, but for some patients pregnancy may not occur until one or more years after their reversal procedure.
