Depending on the type of tubal ligation you had performed, you may be a candidate for a tubal reversal. If not, or if you prefer not to have another surgery on your tubes, IVF is an excellent option for most women. Your REI can help you determine the best option for you since the overall success of both of these options depend on multiple factors such as your age, ovarian reserve, and partner's sperm counts.

If you have had your tubes tied, hopefully you will have two options. You could consult with a physician about the possibility of having a tubal reversal and having your fallopian tubes put back together. The possibility of having this procedure done depends on how your tubal ligation was done and how much of your fallopian tubes remain. If that is not an option, or if you don't want to have that surgery done, you can do in vitro fertilization (IVF). This process would enable a physician to retrieve the eggs from your ovaries, bypassing the fallopian tubes. The eggs would be fertilized in a lab and you would have one or more embryos transferred straight into your uterus. It would be best to speak with a physician to discuss these options and what may be best for you.
