Benefits of
Tubal Reversal Surgery


There are many benefits to having tubal reversal.

The primary benefit of tubal ligation reversal is to allow you to become pregnant again; however, there are many other benefits to having your tubes untied.

Reversing your tubes can allow you the best chance for pregnancy success but it will also help relieve guilt and regret, restore your sense of well-being, and provide a more thorough evaluation for the causes of any abnormal physical symptoms sometimes experienced by women after having their tubes tied.

Tubal Reversal Can Be Very Successful

Tubal reversal (untying tubes) can be very successful in allowing women to become pregnant again.

According to our published Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Report the chances of pregnancy after rate reversal can be as high as 80%.

On average the pregnancy success rate after reversal is 60% and is much higher than the average IVF success rate of 36% per treatment cycle.

Tubal Reversal Is More Affordable

The cost of tubal reversal can be much more affordable than IVF.

A single cycle of IVF can cost between $12,000 to $14,000. If increased dosages of hormones are required or if donor eggs or intra-cytomplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) are used then the cost of IVF will increase dramatically.

Tubal Reversal Offers Natural Pregnancy

Obviously, there is nothing ‘natural’ about reversal surgery; however, many patients want to reverse the permanence they were told to expect when having their tubes tied and avoid the use of high dose hormones required for IVF.

With tubal ligation reversal surgery pregnancy can happen naturally and within the protective confines of the woman’s body.

Tubal Reversal Allows More Chances To Conceive

Tubal reversal surgery allows women the chance to become pregnant every month and more than once. With IVF, the chance to become pregnant is limited to a single treatment cycle.

Reversal Decreases the Chance of Multiples

With tubal ligation reversal, pregnancy occurs by a more natural process and inside the woman’s body. The chance of having twins after reversing tubes is less than 1%. In comparison, the chance of having twins or high order multiples (triplets or more) with IVF is much higher.

The chance of a multiple gestation pregnancy with in-vitro treatment is 33%.

Tubal ligation reversal pregnancies are less likely to be higher risk multiple gestation pregnancies.

Evaluation Of Symptoms After Tubal Ligation

Some patients experience abnormal symptoms after their tubal ligation. Tubal reversal surgery allows for an evaluation of scar tissue or endometriosis formation, which could be the cause of symptoms experienced after tubal ligation surgery.

Removing Regret

The feeling of regret can be very intense for some after a sterilization procedure. Many of our patients feel reversing their blocked tubes allows them to relieve themselves of this regret.

Restores Sense Of Well-being

Many of our tubal reversal patients express a greater sense of well-being and feel a greater sense of womanhood after their ability to naturally conceive is restored.

Benefits Of A Tubal Reversal

Although the primary benefit of tubal reversal for most women is restoration of natural fertility there are many other benefits from having this surgery.

Evaluation of symptoms and relief of regret and remorse after the sterilization procedure are additional benefits tubal ligation reversal surgery can provide to many women.

      It is harder to become pregnant with increasing age but not impossible if you are having regular periods. I would not delay your decision for too long.

      The chance of pregnancy after age 40 and tubal reversal is about 35% to 40%. We do have many patients who become pregnant with tubal reversal after age 40. Most of the women who become pregnant after reversal are between the age of 40 and 43.
