Did anyone have luck getting pregnant after a tubal reversal?

Hi Moms. I had a tubal ligation and ablation some years ago for monthly cycle issues. I’m considering having one more baby and then closing the shop. Have any of had any successful pregnancies after a reversal?

I’d be more concerned about the ablation part. There are only 70 documented cases of women having a successful pregnancy after ablation. Talk to your doctor.

I had tubal reversal after ligation and had a successful pregnancy :blush:

Not with the ablation. It’s very unlikely you will carry the baby

Definitely talk to your doctor about the success rate. From my field of work in healthcare, I have rarely seen Fallopian tubes successfully reopen after a reversal! Sometime so much scar tissue builds up in there, even if the reversal was successful! Something else to consider is many insurance companies will not pay for reversals from what I hear. So it’s really sad when people have to pay cash for the procedure and then it’s unsuccessful. Good luck with either option you decide!

Pregnancy is not likely after ablation, but it can happen. If it does, the risks of miscarriage and other problems are greatly increased. If a woman still wants to become pregnant, she should not have this procedure. Women who have endometrial ablation should use birth control until after menopause

Having a ablation will not cause you not to get pregnant, but less likely, but not impossible. Not the tubal is a different story. But also not unheard of some women getting pregnant, but the large majority won’t, Now as for a reversal, it has to be the clip /ring tubal, those women are more likely to get pregnant after having a reversal, if under 35, but not impossible for those older., just less likely

I did! I had mine in February 2012 an my son was born March 2013💙 mine had been tied for 12 yrs.

Sometimes takes longer, but my sister did. Think it depends how short they cut and tied I think.
