I'm 31 years old and 8 years ago I had a tubal ligation, but I've now remarried and would like to get pregnant. Can the surgeryon the fallopian tubes be reversed?

It will depend on how you were sterilised.

Sterilisation with:

clips (Filshie or Hulka) can usually be reversed

rings (Fallope rings) more difficult to reverse

ESSURE cannot be reversed

at Caesarean section will depend on how much of the tubes was removed

You and your husband should have some other tests performed first to ensure that you are ovulating and that your husband's semen analysis is normal. Most gynaecologists who perform this surgery will undertake an infection screen as well.

Congratulations, and good luck
