Is Tubal Sterilization Reversible?

Is tubal sterilization reversible? Many mistakenly believe you cannot reverse sterilization.


Sterilization reversal surgery in progress

Often patients only remember their doctor’s last words, “This is not reversible.”

Doctors emphasize sterilization is not reversible because they want to be certain you are not having tubal ligation for temporary birth control.

Most patients are certain of their decision at the time, but none of us can predict the future. We often regret decisions and many times life changes course.

The reality is tubal sterilization is reversible. If it can be done….then it can be undone.

How is tubal sterilization reversible?

During a tubal sterilization (i.e. a tubal ligation) procedure the fallopian tube is closed to prevent pregnancy. Tubal sterilization can be reversed during microsurgery by opening the closed ends of the fallopian tubes and rejoining the closed tubes.

Americas best doctor for reversal surgeryAll Ob/Gyn doctors have performed tubal sterilization at some point in their careers. Most Ob/Gyns and even most infertility specialist have no training in reversal surgery.

Tubal reversal surgery was more common before in-vitro fertilization (IVF) was invented. IVF became more popular because it could be done in a doctor’s office and was cheaper than surgery in a hospital. Since IVF became more popular very few doctors have training in sterilization reversal.

If you want to have your tubal sterilization reversed then your chances are better if you see a doctor who has experience and who performs these surgeries regularly.
