How to Get Tubes Untied: Reverse Tubal Ligation

What is Reverse Tubal Ligation?

Reverse tubal ligation – or more properly, tubal ligation reversal – is a procedure to get tubes untied for women who desire a pregnancy after tubal ligation. There are actually several procedures that can be used to untie tubes after the tubes have been tied.

Techniques of Reverse Tubal Ligation

There are 3 main techniques that can be used for reversing tubal ligation.

  1. Tubal anastomosis
  2. Tubal implantation
  3. Salpingostomy (Fimbriectomy Reversal)

Tubal Anastomosis

Tubal Anastomosis
Microsurgical tubal anastomosis is the most common technique to untie tubes.
Tubal anastomosis is the best procedure to get tubes untied.

The most common method for untying tubes is the reverse tubal ligation procedure of tubal anastomosis. Anastomosis refers to joining two body parts, and tubotubal anastomosis is joining two tubal segments together. Most techniques that tie tubes result in two separate tubal segments, so the simplest way to get tubes untied in these cases is with the anastomosis procedure.

For more details about untying tubes via tubal anastomosis, see the topic on Tubal Reversal by Tubal Anastomosis on the Tubal Reversal Blog and the description of Microsurgical Tubal Anastomosis on the A Personal Choice website.

What is the Cost of Untying Tubes?

Reverse tubal ligation is usually described as extremely expensive, ranging from $10,000 to $30,000. The tubal anastomosis procedure to untie tubes costs $5900 at A Personal Choice Center. Because it is done as outpatient surgery and performed four times a day, the cost savings is passed on to the women who want kids after tubal ligation.

      We should be able to help you and it is possible to conceive after tubal reversal surgery. Many doctors tell you it can’t be reversed because they want you to be sure when you make the decision to have tubal ligation or they mistakenly think only IVF is an option.

      We charge $6400 total plus $125 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Patients pay in full and out-of-pocket at the time of scheduling. All you have to pay for in addition to the surgical fee is the cost of travel, hotel, and food.

      We do have a prepayment tubal reversal plan that allows you to save towards your reversal over a 3 year period.

      Although $6,400 seems expensive…the alternative treatment in-vitro fertilization (IVF) average $12,000 to $14,000 and is about 40% successful!

      The main advantage to tubal reversal is that every month you have a chance and you can become pregnant more than once.

    Hi,I had my tubes tied at the age of 30, It wasnt my choice I felt like the doctor made my descion at the time. Just because I had a slight addiction. Is there any place in Ontario where I can get tubes untied and how much would it cost me?

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      We have many patients who travel from Ontario because they cannot find either experienced doctors or timely surgical times for tubal reversal.

      We charge $6400 total plus $125 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Patients pay in full and out-of-pocket at the time of scheduling. All you have to pay for in addition to the surgical fee is the cost of travel, hotel, and food.

    Im 47 i had my tubes cut 1.5 cm apart on both sides after my third child. is it still posible to have a tubal pregnancy after 23 years.

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      Treina
      It is harder to become pregnant with increasing age but not impossible if you are having regular periods. I would advise you not delay your decision for too long.

      The chance of pregnancy after age 40 and tubal reversal is about 35% to 40%. We do have many patients who become pregnant with tubal reversal after age 40. Most of the women who become pregnant after reversal are between the age of 40 and 43.

      For more information: Tubal reversal and age

      The surgery at our center should be safe. Pregnancy should be safe as long as you dont have any severe medical conditions. It is harder to become pregnant with increasing age so I would not delay your decision for too long.
