Many of the women we talk to on a daily basis are very nervous about the thought of having surgery and have many questions about female sterilisation reversal. Even so, they want to have another baby, so they come to us for help. Have you found yourself having thoughts about the possibility of having another baby, but you’ve had your tubes clipped, tied or cut? It’s easy to think that all hope is lost, and you’ll have to feel satisfied with the amount of children you have.

We’re thankful that it is possible to have a female sterilisation reversal . Without it, many women would go through their lives feeling incomplete. For women, not being able to have a baby, even after you’ve chosen female sterilisation, can be a very depressing thought.

What is Female Sterilization Reversal?

Female sterilization reversal, also known as tubal ligation reversal, is a surgical procedure aimed at undoing the effects of a previous sterilisation operation. During a tubal ligation (female sterilisation procedure), the fallopian tubes are either cut, sealed, or blocked to prevent eggs from reaching the uterus, effectively preventing pregnancy. A reversal involves reconnecting or unblocking the fallopian tubes, allowing the possibility of natural conception once again.

Is a Female Sterilization Reversal Always Successful?

The success of a female sterilization reversal depends on several factors, including the method used for the initial tubal ligation, the length of the remaining fallopian tubes, and the age and overall health of the individual. Reversal success rates vary but tend to be higher for women who had their tubes initially sealed or clipped rather than completely removed. Typically, success rates range from 40% to 80%, with the best outcomes seen in women under the age of 40 with longer segments of healthy fallopian tubes.

Mr Dobson’s success rates mean that 75% of the women aged under 41 years of age who attend for surgery become pregnant.

What are the Risks and Costs Involved?

Like any surgical procedure, female sterilisation reversal comes with risks and associated costs. Risks may include infection, bleeding, damage to nearby organs, and an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy outside the uterus), which can be life-threatening. It’s crucial to discuss these potential risks with your healthcare provider.

Costs for a tubal ligation reversal can vary widely, depending on factors like the surgeon’s experience, location, and the complexity of the procedure. The cost with Mr Dobson is a competitive price with finance available to spread the cost. Currently in the UK, medical insurance does not cover the cost nor is the procedure possible on the NHS.
