There are a variety of reasons why you may have considered sterilisation reversal in the first place. Whether you are in a different situation than in the past, have a new family or have changed your mind about having children, you may be wondering if you’re the right candidate for sterilisation reversal. Here are a few things to take into consideration.
- Age: There are a few factors for success when it comes to age. Obviously, the younger the patient then the higher the success but it does vary. For instance, after 35 years of age the ovaries create fewer eggs so it is harder to become pregnant. There are other aging factors to consider as well but that does not mean it won’t work, just that there is a higher rate for younger patients.
- Health: The past medical health of the patient is another consideration. Factors such as the condition of the fallopian tubes, ectopic pregnancies, a ruptured appendix, endometriosis, fibroids, and pelvic infections in the past are all things that can affect the chance of pregnancy but are not set-in-stone deciding factors.
- Male Fertility: Male fertility is a basis in whether or not a woman will become pregnant. If the male has issues such as genetic disorders, obstructive issues, hormonal problems or anything that affects their fertility, this can make it more difficult for the female patient to become pregnant.
All of these issues are simply guidelines in your chances of having a baby. None of them are the final decision in your chances and are not to be used to discourage you. They are just here so that you know going in what the odds are based upon. We are here to help you, listen to you and help you with your sterilisation reversal.
