If you have a tubectomy and you want to be a mom, there are two ways

One question that we get asked a lot is if tubectomies have reversal, and they do.

They have approximately 70-90% chance of achieving pregnancy later on within the first year after getting the reversal. 

It’s important for you to know that it doesn’t matter how long you’ve had the surgery, the most important part is the age at which you get the reversal surgery.

Hi, if you have a tubectomy and you want to be a mom, there are two ways. 

The first way is to have a reversal surgery, that’s where we take the tubes, we take out the part that has the scarring and put them back together.

The second way is to do in vitro fertilization, that’s were we take out the ovums from the ovaries, inject them with the sperm and make babies outside of the body.

There are two ways in which we can do the reversal surgery. One of them is through laparoscopy, which is making a small incision where the belly button is, putting inside a camera and using very small devices to cut the scar tissue and to put them back together.

There are other ways which is opening the abdomen making a small incision above the pubic bone and bringing out the tubes so we can cut them and put them back together.

After the surgery is done, during surgery we test the tubes, but after surgery about six months later we can check to see if the scarring obstructed the tubes again. That can be done with a test called hysterosalpingography, that test is going to check if the tubes are still open.

After the surgery depending on your doctor’s recommendation, you can start having intercourse about a month after the surgery and you can start looking for your baby in a natural form. If 6 months later you still haven’t gotten pregnant, you can test your tubes to make sure they’re still open.

Now you know we can help you here at Dejando Huella so well be expecting you, bye.
