When you come to A Personal Choice for tubal surgery you will be benefiting from our exclusive dedication to tubal surgery. We don’t provide vague or estimated numbers on your chance of success because we have taken the effort to collect detailed statistics on over 10,000 tubal reversal surgeries performed over the course of a decade.
As a result of our efforts, we are able to provide you with accurate information about your chances of pregnancy after tubal ligation reversal.
Although tubal reversal is more successful in women under the age of 30, our experience demonstrates pregnancy is possible at any age if you are having regular periods. This is why we don’t have a mandatory age restriction for our surgery patients.
Although tubal reversal is more successful in women who have had tubal clips or tubal rings, our experience has demonstrated any tubal ligation can be reversed and pregnancy is possible. This is why we don’t require that you have an operative note before having surgery at our center.
When most doctors believed Essure could not be successfully reversed we proved it was possible.
At A Personal Choice we understand no one can predict the future and no one can predict who will or will not become pregnant. We have worked diligently to provide statistics about tubal reversal success so our potential patients can make a more informed decision about their reproductive choices. Although we have worked hard to provide statistics and numbers to our patients, we realize each of our patients is not a number. We let our patients make the decisions they feel appropriate for themselves, their partners, and their families.
Chances of Pregnancy
After Tubal Ligation Reversal
|Method||Total Cases||Pregnant (Number)||Pregnant (Percent)|
We have observed pregnancy after reversal of all types of tubal ligation. The chances of pregnancy are higher after reversal of tubal clips and rings but our patients also have experienced success after reversal of coagulation (tubal burning). Our patients are able to become pregnant after tubal reversal even when they have been unable to obtain their operative notes or have had unknown types of tubal ligation procedures.
Our experience has demonstrated we can successfully repair the tubes in over 98% of women who come to our center and approximately 67% (2 out of 3) of these women will become pregnant after reversal surgery.
Essure sterilization is one of the more difficult types of tubal sterilization procedures to reverse. Dr. Monteith was one of the first doctors in the world to publish within the peer reviewed medical literature reports of successful pregnancy after Essure reversal surgery.

Chances of Pregnancy
After Reversal Based On Age
|Age||Total Cases||Pregnant (Number)||Pregnant (Percent)|
The power of tubal reversal is derived from the fact that each month you have a chance to get pregnant. Even a small chance each month added up over many months can grow to be a larger chance over time.
Younger women are more likely to become pregnant because of the greater time they allow themselves to become pregnant. Although the chance of pregnancy after tubal reversal is higher in younger women, we have observed pregnancy after tubal reversal at most ages. Our oldest confirmed patient to become naturally pregnant was 47 years of age.
