Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Study 2009 – Overview

Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Study Report 2009

Notice of Study Update

The following is Dr. Berger’s report from 2009. The corresponding page of an updated report can be seen at:
Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Study Report 2011 – Overview.


Tubal reversal is the most successful treatment for women wanting to get pregnant after having a tubal ligation. This report presents detailed pregnancy statistics from over 5000 patients at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center. It is the largest study ever reported about tubal ligation reversal, pregnancies, and pregnancy outcomes.


The desire to have a baby after a tubal ligation is common for women in second marriages, following the loss of a child, wanting to restore their bodies to be whole again, and for a variety of other reasons.

Most people are not aware that tubal ligation – usually considered a permanent method of birth control – can be reversed through low cost, one hour outpatient surgery. Even many doctors think mistakenly that treatment by in vitro fertilization (IVF) is needed for women who want another baby after having a tubal sterilization. The results from this study show that tubal reversal at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center is successful for most women wanting to get pregnant after having their tubes tied.

Tubal Reversal – The Alternative to Treatment by IVF

Information is widely available about in vitro fertilization (IVF) results in the United States from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Tubal reversal pregnancy and birth statistics, however, are difficult to find and generally have been based on small numbers of patients under special study conditions. This report analyzes pregnancy rates and pregnancy outcomes for a very large population of women (5,046) who had tubal reversal procedures at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center. This is the most detailed study of tubal reversal surgery available on the internet or in medical publications.
