Less that 2% using your own eggs. Donor eggs are a far more successful option.

Hi,

Our cut off age for a tubal reversal procedure is 35. This may not be the case for other facilities. Still, at age 47, your chances of becoming pregnant and going to full-term after a tubal reversal are low for a variety of reasons, including your egg reserve, which has likely sharply declined due to your age. However, this does not mean your ability to have a child are lost. Consult with a board-certified doctor who specializes in fertility treatments. He or she can advise you about other fertility treatment options that are available to you.

At age 47, only a few ladies are potentially fertile no matter what treatment. We would suggest an AMH test to see if you are one of those lucky few. Most success in your age group comes though egg donation.

The only way to achieve pregnancy after tubal reversal is by IVF (in vitro fertilization). However, IVF using your own eggs at the age of 47 would not be recommended. Your best chance of success for pregnancy would be through an egg donor or embryo donation.

Because there are other considerations to be factored, it is suggested that you seek the advice of a reproductive endocrinologist.

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?
