Has anyone gotten a tubal reversal?

I want to ask the moms out there… I had my third child at the age of 24 and I now feel stupidly got my tubes tied. I just wish someone would have at the very least told me to truly think it through. I’m only 32 and in such a different place, still married to the man I had my last child with. I truly feel now that I want to have one more child, so I guess my question is, has anyone here had the reversal? Is it even worth it, chances-wise? What’s the cost? Does insurance even consider paying for it? please, no negative comments, just something I’ve been thinking about. Thanks

I would look into IVF instead of a reversal.

Five yrs after my friend had her tubal she ended up pregnant n now has a five yr old :slight_smile:

Ivf is most like the road to take . Also foster parenting to adopt too

A friend of mine had a tubal reversal and she ended up having 4 more children (total of 7). Not sure if the cost but seemed to work out well for her :heart: Best of luck!

I don’t get why you say “I wish they made me truly think about it” you have to meet the criteria to even get it and you sign a paper and have to wait 30 days to make sure that’s what you really want…
I think adopting would be a great alternative.

Mine was almost 8 grand and 90% of carrying a healthy pregnancy to term. Im able to try right away. Down time is 10 days. Same day surgery. Everyone’s expirence is different. Contact your fertility clinic and send them your tubal surgical records. They will determine how easy/difficult procedure will be and give you a probability of success. Good luck! Also insurance usually doesn’t cover any at all bevaude it is an elective procedure

I did and have 4 more, only cost about 5000.00 I dont know where you stay, but there’s a really good dr in Chapel Hill NC,

My sister was quoted 6-8k to have them reverse.

As for insurance, I work for one of the largest health insurance companies. We do not cover sterilization reversal if the original procedure was elective

Its not my personal experience but a friends. She had a tubal reversal and a year later after everything was healed etc she had healthy twin boys. This was about 2 years ago and it cost her around $13,000 out of pocket. Her doctor did say if he had seen scans of her tubal before hand he would have never touched her. Apparently the doctor who tied them pretty much butchered them. If its not plausible for you and ivf isnt plausible adoption is a great option. So many babies out there to love. Good luck and best wishes in whatever you decide.

It isn’t cheap and isn’t guaranteed you will be able to have more. I would say enjoy your kiddos now as they will graduate while you are still young. Starting over at this point sounds stressful. Only really something to think through I guess

A friend of mine had her’s reversed but insurance didn’t cover that, so you might consider that too. She did go on to have 2 more kids

I’m 24 I’ve jsut had my last baby 18 week ago I asked could I be done they said no because my age:/… I know 100% I am DONE now I have 2 children, I’ve only ever wanted 2 and my partner didn’t want any but I fell pregnant with our first then we said one more then that’s it and I am very happy with jsut my two so I wanted to be done to be safer but they wouldn’t:( pretty gutted tbh! As I don’t want to end up falling pregnant again! I’m on depo but still it’s not 100%! I know I am done and don’t want anymore! I personally couldn’t cope with any more so I wouldn’t do it to myself and another Child it’s not fair x

I tried having mine reversed, but mine where 1/2 centimeter too short… Just keep that in mind, but IVF is also an option❤️. Good luck!

I have a 4 year age gap between my two abs oh my god it’s hard work!! I feel like it was forever ago I did all the baby stuff with my eldest even though it wasn’t that long ago…

I felt same at 26 dr refused and I had medical reasons . I’m glad he did coz I had my boy at 34 . U can get reversed x

You could always adopt💙
