Reversal Surgery: Is there an age limit?
Many IVF doctors have age limits and won’t treat patients past a certain age.
Usually IVF doctors will not offer IVF to a woman at age 42 with her own eggs because the chance of successful IVF pregnancy with your own eggs after age 42 is less than 10%.
IVF doctors will often recommend women 43 years of age and older have IVF with eggs donated from a women under the age of 30 because the chance of IVF success with eggs from a younger woman could be as high as 50%.
- IVF with own eggs costs can average $14,000 for each cycle attempted.
- IVF with donor eggs costs can $18,000 to $22,000 for each cycle attempted
We are commonly asked if we have an age limit for tubal reversal surgery? The answer is no…we don’t have an age limit.
Why doesn’t Dr. Monteith have an age limit?
Dr. Monteith does not have an age limit for the simple reason….if you are having periods then you are releasing eggs. If you are releasing eggs, then you can become pregnant.

It is harder to become pregnant with increasing age but not impossible. If you are having periods you are releasing eggs…each month you have a chance to become pregnant.
The professional society of doctors who are responsible for IVF treatment in the United States constantly recommend at their annual meeting
“Tubal reversal surgery has a higher chance of pregnancy success over time when compared to a single cycle of IVF treatment… even in women 40 years of age or older.”
~American Society for Reproductive Medicine
They admit tubal reversal is more successful than IVF because over time….every month you have a chance of becoming pregnant.
They also acknowledge that this benefit is also available to women over the age of 40 … or even older!
Dr. Monteith realizes each month you have a chance to get pregnant…and because the American Society for Reproductive Medicine recognizes that even older women have better chances of natural pregnancy with tubal reversal….Dr. Monteith does not have an age limit for tubal reversal surgery!
