Absolutely! A tubal reversal or tubal ligation reversal consists of very carefully attaching two ends of a Fallopian tube that were previously separated in the middle of the tube. Separation during tubal ligation may have been done by cutting and tying and it's definitely reversible.

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?
