TUBAL Ligation REVERSAL
Pregnancy Success

For many patients tubal ligation reversal surgery can be more affordable, more successful, and can provide more chances at becoming pregnant than can in-vitro fertilization (IVF).

The leading group of infertility specialists, The American Society For Reproductive Medicine, has consistently supported tubal surgery as a treatment for tubal ligation and tubal blockage.1

Many women who have tubal blockage will consider having tubal surgery or IVF. It is important for patients to understand how having tubal surgery can be a better option than IVF for most women.

    I had the essure procedure done in 2006. Twelve years later, I met the love of my life and would love to be able to have a child with him. I’m being told that I have a better chance of getting pregnant with ivf over a essure reversal. Can you please give me any feedback on my situation. Both procedures are very costly, therefore I want to ensure we choose what would be the best for us. I appreciate any help you can offer..

      You have a tough decision and hindsight will always be 20:20. If you are under the age of 30 then IVF may be a better option statistically….the chance of pregnancy could be as high as 50% to 60% with IVF. You will also have to ask your doctor does having the Essure devices in decrease the chance of IVF success or the risks to pregnancy. There are concerns if the Essure devices are projecting into the uterine cavity the success rate of IVF may be decreased. We dont really know with certainty if there are risks to pregnancy.

      We specialize in Essure reversal and Essure removal surgery. We can reverse Essure and give you the chance of pregnancy….or we can remove Essure and leave your tubes closed. The chance of pregnancy after Essure reversal is about 40%.

      It is possible! We should be able to help you. We can reverse most tubal ligation procedures.

      You should send us your tubal ligation reports for a free review and we can let you know if you are a candidate for reversal surgery. Your reports can be obtained from the medical records department where your tubal ligation surgery was performed.

      We charge $6400 total plus $125 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina.

      Please be aware that starting April 1st 2019 the fee for reversal surgery will increase to $6,900 and the scheduling fee will increase to $150. If you want to avoid the higher fees then you should schedule your surgery before April 1st or start a Reversal Prepayment Account.

      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.

      On average the chance of pregnancy after tubal ligation reversal is about 60% if you are under age 42.

      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.
