Tubal Reversal . 2 answers . 2 years ago

I am 46 years old and my tubes were tied 27 years ago. I had a b&c done in November. I had an overgrowth and he cleaned everything out. Could I get pregnant if I have a tubal reversal? My husband would love to have a baby.

The inherent pregnancy rate at age 42 is less than 5 percent. Although the pregnancy rate is not zero, you'd be spending a lot of money with very little to show for it. However, your chances are pretty good to conceive if you wanted to use a donor's eggs. The success of this will depend on the health and condition of your
uterus and your husband's sperm. I would encourage you to speak to a specialist.

Are you having normal menstrual periods? If so, it is possible. However, the likelihood that you can become pregnant and have another baby is not high.

I had the Hulka clips put on during a tubal ligation procedure when I was 24 years old. I am now 30 and my husband and I want another child. We are uncertain if my irregular periods are being caused by some of the Hulka clips coming off, or maybe the tube has grown around them. Is this likely and would either cause irregular periods? Also, would tubal reversal be a good option if we are considering having another child?
