What is tubal ligation?

Tubal ligation is the clinical term for having your “tubes tied.” It’s a permanent, surgical method of birth control that blocks your fallopian tubes to prevent eggs from being fertilized by sperm.

Many women choose to have their tubes tied to eliminate the need for birth control once they are done having children. Your fallopian tubes can be stitched, cut, clipped, or banded shut.

What is tubal ligation reversal?

If you’ve had a change of heart and decided you want more children, there's a procedure for reversing your tubal ligation. Tubal ligation reversal essentially undoes a tubal ligation, untying, reopening, or reconnecting your fallopian tubes.

To determine if you’re a candidate for tubal ligation reversal, Dr. Madanes considers:

  • Your age
  • Your overall health
  • Any current or past gynecological disorders
  • Any prior surgeries
  • Whether you have been pregnant before
  • What kind of tubal ligation you had

Dr. Madanes also confirms that there are no underlying issues that could prevent you and your partner from getting pregnant after a reversal. He’ll ensure that your fallopian tubes are still functioning correctly and order a sperm analysis for your partner (healthy sperm count is also needed for pregnancy to occur).

How successful is tubal ligation reversal?

Provided there are no other fertility issues, your chances of getting pregnant after a tubal ligation reversal are good. In fact, most pregnancies happen within a year of the procedure.

Nevertheless, success depends on a few variables, including your age, the amount of scar tissue present, and your partner’s sperm quality. Should you have trouble getting pregnant, in vitro fertilization (IVF) is another available option.

Dr. Madanes is happy to give you an honest, realistic assessment of whether tubal ligation reversal can work for you. Schedule an appointment by calling the Midwest Fertility Center or using the online booking tool.
