Tubal Ligation Reversal

Tubal ligation is intended to be permanent but for women who come to our center for reversal … permanent is not forever.

We can repair all types of tubal ligations and many of our patients will become pregnant within the first 12 months of having tubal reversal surgery. All tubal ligations cause the fallopian tube to heal with closure and become blocked. This blockage prevents sperm from finding and fertilizing an egg.

Tubal reversal surgery involves removing the blockage, rejoining the fallopian tubes, and restoring natural conception.

Success of Tubal Reversal

Tubal reversal can be very successful for many women. Approximately 2 out of every 3 women who become pregnant after reversing their tubes.

There are two factors which predict the success of tubal reversal surgery: patient age and the type of tubal ligation.

Tubal ligation: Can it be reversed?

Although it is well know by many that vasectomy is reversible, many people (medical and non-medical) mistakenly believe tubal ligation is not a reversible procedure. Tubal ligation is a reversible procedure.

Tubal ligation is very common and 1 out of every 3 women will regret their tubal ligation. Although many will regret having their tubes tied, very few women will actually have tubal ligation reversal surgery.

Many women will be told by medical professionals tubal reversal is not possible and their only option is in-vitro fertilization. Many of these women will give up hope of having natural conception.

Many health care providers, including many IVF specialists, are not aware the American Society for Reproductive Medicine is actually very supportive of tubal reversal surgery.

“Tubal anastomosis (tubal reversal) has a significantly higher cumulative pregnancy rate than IVF, and it is more cost efficient, even in women 40 years of age or older.”

– American Society for Reproductive Medicine, Committee opinion: role of tubal surgery in the era of assisted reproductive technology 2012

Tubal reversal or IVF

The leading group of IVF experts in the United States has consistently concluded a single cycle of IVF is more successful than when compared to a single month of trying to become pregnant naturally after tubal reversal but with the passage of time tubal reversal can be more successful and affordable than IVF.

I'm definitely confident in this Dr's work, and especially glad at how little pain I experienced throughout the process. It would be worth it to visit Dr. Monteith no matter what state you have to travel from, I drove from Virginia."

"Very comforting and knowledgeable experience not only was the staff pleasant so was the atmosphere! I drove 3 hours so i did my research. I was impressed with the information, visuals, and on hand knowledge about what the procedure was all about. I felt like an expert after i left! Not to mention the 45 min in and out time. I will be recommending this to all my colleagues thank you!"

"Dr Monteith, and his staff, were all very professional about my decision to have a vastectomy. They informed me of the risks, the surgery procedure, and the post-surgery care. The procedure itself was relatively painless. I would rate this as a 2/10. I highly recommend Dr Monteith; he even sent me a text message after the surgery to give me a personal update on my procedure. The procedure was quick."

- S.E.

"If you're in the market for a Vasectomy you need to give Dr. Monteith a serious look. Just compare the information on his website to the information you'll get from other options around the triangle. It's hard to get solid answers on cost, procedure and expectations up front from other offices but A Personal Choice plays no games and has great informative well designed website. Dr. Monteith makes it easy!"

- J.P.

"Excellent care. I visited Dr. Monteith for a single visit appointment on a Friday. Very clean, comfortable office. Pleasant staff. The procedure was quick and I went back to work for a little while. The only pain I experienced was soreness beginning about 4 hours post procedure, lasting for 24 hours, then subsiding rapidly. I was fine by Monday. The office checked on me twice, no problems. I would recommend Dr. Monteith to anyone.

- M.D.
