Are Tubal Ligation Reversals Successful?

The first question which any woman planning to undergo tubal ligation reversal would ask is ‘what are the chances of my getting pregnant following tubal reversal?’ While undergoing tubal ligation is a permanent type of female birth control procedure, tubal reversal eventually allows women to get pregnant and have children. Nevertheless, there are certain factors which increase or decrease chances of a woman getting pregnant following tubal ligation reversal. 

Success Rates of Tubal Ligation Reversal

Chances increase if you are under 35 years of age and in good fertile health. Rate of success in these circumstances range between 50 to 80 percent within the first year of undergoing tubal ligation reversal. This is an average percentage of couples who are able to conceive and subsequently have babies following tubal reversal. However, with each passing month following this period success rates of pregnancy for women undergoing tubal reversal lower typically in comparison with women who have not undergone either of these two procedures.

Pregnancy for Women Under 35 Years of Age

Young women who are especially less than 30 years of age have higher chances of undergoing pregnancy following tubal ligation reversal. Success rates of tubal reversal usually decline after women have hit 37 years of age. While women under 35 years of age undergoing tubal reversal have 70 – 80 percent chances of getting pregnant, women over 40 years of age only have about 30 percent chances during the first year following tubal ligation reversal.

Type of Tubal Ligation Also Matters

Success of tubal reversal also depends upon the type of tubal ligation you have undergone in the first place. Falope rings or Hulka clips provide higher chances of getting pregnant after tubal reversal procedures. Rings and clips typically make it easy for the surgeon to reconnect tubes during the tubal reversal procedure. Tubes which were burnt or cut during the initial tubal ligation procedure can get damaged or get too short to be able to get reconnected. Eventually, they would affect the success rates of the tubal reversal procedure. Other factors which affect success rates of the tubal reversal fertility treatment procedure include sperm count of the partner, number and health of female eggs and the reproductive health of the woman including disorders like endometriosis. In such a scenario, it would therefore be best for the woman and the partner to obtain a full fertility analysis before undergoing tubal ligation reversal.

IVF for Conception is Worth Considering

The truth is that some women have lower success rates following tubal reversal even when they are in good health. This is why IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) becomes a practical option for them to get pregnant. Especially when you are over 35 years of age and struggling with fertility problems, undergoing IVF may be a better solution.

Excellent Quality of IVF Treatment in India

Quality of IVF treatment in India is excellent and at par with the best that is available within the Western countries. IVF treatment costs in India are in fact comparatively just a fraction of what couples may end up paying in other infertility treatment healthcare havens across the world. International patient couples therefore have an added advantage by undergoing IVF treatment in India; while availing the best of fertility treatments, they can take an extended exotic vacation along with the procedure and yet be able to save substantial amounts of their hard earned money.
