infertility treatment after tubal tie.. is it possible??

Postby hiss » Mon May 22, 2006 10:00 pm

I had a tubal tie about 3 yrs or so ago. Reasons partly didn't think I wanted children, secondly, didn't have much choice, as doctor took me off the pill due to risk of strokes, and the only option left was condoms or sterilization.

Anyway, to cut a long story short. Has anyone else been in the same boat, whereby they feel their sterilization was a mistake? And what's the chances of getting fertility treatment? Is it worth seeing my dr, or will it be a waste of time and a huge embarrasement?

Please help, I feel so upset by it.

Treatment after tubal ligation

I'm new here, but I suspect that is a common question. IVF after tubal ligation is quite common.

Thanks for the reply.
I paid a visit to me GP, and she is looking into a reversal operation. The question remains will the NHS cover the costs, or will I have to go private. Either way, things look positive.

Hiss, Hi, I have had a tubal reversal. two infact. If you are going to go this route then you must research it carefully. The doctor you choose should be very familar with reversals and should have lots of experience. My reversal doctor was Dr. Gary Berger in N.C. is he wonderful. You can find him on the internet by typing in tubal reversal with Dr.Berger. If you have any ?'s about this please email me at brennan5@peoplepc.com
