Tubal Ligation Reversal
Tubal ligation reversal is a procedure for women who wish to have a previous tubal sterilization undone because of changes in their life situations. A skilled reproductive endocrinologist may be able to successfully reconnect the tubes, depending on how the tubes were "tied" and other factors. Pregnancy rates after successful tubal reversal surgery are approximately 75% over a two-year period, with half of those pregnancies occurring within the first 6 months.
