How to Get Tubes Untied? Reverse Your Tubal Ligation

If you are researching how to get tubes untied then you definitely have something in common with many other women: tubal ligation regret.

A significant number of women who get their tubes tied will regret their decision.

Medical studies have consistently demonstrated that 1 out of every 3 women who have a tubal ligation will regret their decision. Regret is the highest in women who have a tubal ligation under the age of 30 and in those women who have two or less kids. Women who regret tubal ligation will look into alternative ways to restore their fertility.

If you have wondered how to get tubes untied then this is the article for you!

Can Your Tubes Be Untied?

Tubes can be untied! Although untying tubes is an easy procedure it is not as easy as untying a ribbon or untying your shoe laces because tubes are never ‘just tied’ to prevent pregnancy.

how-to-untie-tubes-after-tubal-ligationThe term tying tubes…is a simplified way to explain a complex surgical procedure in a way that most people can easily understand.

When you asked your doctor to tie your tubes…they did not twist and tie your tubes like you would when making a hair bun or ponytail. They did not tie your fallopian tubes in a knot like you would when you tie your shoe laces!

When your doctor tied your tubes here is what they did.

They tied a suture in the middle of your tube…and then tied a second suture about 1 inch away from the first suture. The doctor then cut out the middle section of tube in bewteen the two pieces of tied suture. This surgical procedure is called ligation and resection tubal occlusion.

Ligation means to tie.

Resection means to remove by cutting.

tubal occlusion is closure of a tube.

When you asked your doctor to tie your tubes…they performed a ligation and resection tubal occlusion procedure. This is quite a mouthful…so many health care professionals find it easier to just tell you they ‘tied your tubes’!

What Is The Procedure To Have Tubes Untied?

how-to-get-tubes-untied-for-freeThe procedure to untie tubes is the bilateral tubal anastomosis procedure.

Bilateral means both sides…the left and the right. Anastomosis refers to joining two body parts. 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 tubotubal anastomosis procedure.

If your tubes can be surgically divided then it stands to reason your tubes can be surgically rejoined.

How To Get Tubes Untied?

Getting your tubes untied is easier than you may think when you come to A Personal Choice Tubal Reversal Center in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The first step is to send us a copy of your tubal ligation operative report and pathology report for a free review.

Tubal Ligation Operative Report. The tubal ligation operative report is a typed 1 to 2 page document that describes exactly how your tubal ligation was performed. EVERY surgery has an operative report. Some hospitals only keep records for 5 to 12 years and each state has its own rules for keeping records. As more places are starting to keep electronic, hospitals are now starting to keep operative notes indefinitely.

Pathology Report. If a piece of your tube was removed then there should also be a pathology report. This is a 1 to 2 page document that describes the actual length of the piece of tube that was removed. If you have the burning procedure, tubal clips , tubal rings, or Essure then you will not have a pathology report because nothing was removed from your tubes.

The best place to get your records is the medical records department in the hospital or facility where the surgical procedure was performed. Your doctor’s office may…or may not have your records….the hospital that performed your procedure is required to keep your records

Are You A Candidate To Get Your Tubes Untied?
