Had a reversal 2 years ago and RE was only able to fix one tube so you take chances there. It is still worth it for me.. With IVF you get one chance and with reversal, as long as you didn't have any issues before then you should be okay to try and try and try, Most RE's can look at your operative report when you had them tied and give you a succes rate with tube legth and condition. There are some that will no even charge for that. If you are interested, message me and I'll put you in touch!

Best of luck and Baby dust to you!

Hi, I've recently had a tubal reversal. One tube was badly damaged the other has been repaired. The success of the operation varies greatly depending on the method of steralisation, the length of time between the original surgery and the reversal, and the length of fallopian tube that is left.

I also have four children, but due to a change in family circumstance was desperate for another child. The method of tubal litigation i had was the "filshie clips" this has the best chance of a successful reversal with 80% of woman falling pregnant with one year. I had my tubal sterilisation seven years ago, and now have good length working tube..

Good Luck

My advice would be you know your own body and circumstance, don't be put off by a doctor who isn't interested in helping, I was very lucky and mine was a sweety really understanding and assuring. But i know many women who have had terrible experiences due to an unsysmpathetic Doc..

Consult w/an re - chances are that after the age of 40, IVF would be a better option.  I too had a tubal & at 43 decided to have another baby but because of age, we chose IVF - re said the chances of tubal reversal working were slim to none.
