If you’ve come to the point in your life where you’ve decided to start a family but for whatever reason in the past you had a tubal ligation, having a tubal ligation reversal is possible and here is how it works.
The original tubal ligation was performed by cutting, tying or clipping the fallopian tubes. This keeps the egg from traveling from your ovary and down the fallopian tube where it ends up in the womb. While the egg is still released after a tubal ligation, it comes across a blockage in the fallopian tubes thus making it unable to reach your uterus.
If you have changed your mind about your tubal ligation, there is a solution. A tubal ligation reversal works by rejoining the fallopian tubes. Mr Dobson makes a small incision on your bikini line. This is about a 10-12cm in length incision and he finds the fallopian tubes where they have been clipped, tied or cut. Once there, he simply rejoins them using magnification by tiny sutures or stitches that are smaller than a hair from your head. After about five days or so the single skin stitch can be taken out and within a month you’ll be back to your normal activities. Believe it or not, the entire procedure takes only about an hour of time and you simply have to take it easy for a week or two.
As you can see, tubal ligation reversal is an easy process for you to undertake if you want to reverse the effects of your tubal ligation and be able to start a family. If you want to learn more or wish to set up a consultation, simply contact us.
