Sometimes after a woman decides who would like to be medically sterilized, circumstances in her life change. If you are one of the millions of women who has decided to reverse sterilization, you are not alone. Countless women have made the move for sterilization reversal and have conceived once again naturally without issue.
The procedure for reversal of female sterilization is poignantly focused on reconnecting the severed Fallopian tubes. The procedure is relatively minor and requires only a general anesthetic. The procedure is preformed by first making a small incision along the patient’s bikini line and across the abdomen.
After making the incision, the practitioner removes the clip across the Fallopian tubes that was implanted during the sterilization procedure. Once the clip is removed the Fallopian tubes are opened and a small threading is used to reconnect the once severed tubes. Because of the delicacy of the procedure, sometimes only one tube can be reconnected. This can be common and often does not reduce the chances of conception.
Common complications of sterilization removal can include minor bruising around the incision area. In the event of infection, a General Practitioner can prescribe antibiotics.
The entire procedure usually takes approximately one hour to complete. Hospital stays can range from one to two days depending on the patient’s recovery time. Each patient is unique and careful evaluation of each individual case can further outline timelines associated with the procedure. It is generally advised that each patient should take some time off from work and abstain from exercise for a short period of time to allow the incision to heal.
