What Are The Chances Of Tubal Ligation Reversal Resulting In a Pregnancy After 30 After 40As an experienced female sterilization reversal clinic, we meet with patients from all stages of life. All of these women have at least one thing in common with each other… they are all thinking of having tubal ligation reversal performed so that they can complete their families.

Research has shown that while fertility and pregnancy rates start to slow down as women age, especially after the age of 30, there are still many chances that someone searching to complete their family can do so. Life changes throughout the years and a choice to have a tubal ligation performed when you were younger may have been the right choice and now with a different set of circumstances you can have Dr. Clive Pickles help you achieve your family’s dream of another baby.

At the age of 30, a woman has up to an 81% chance of getting pregnant after she has a tubal ligation reversal. The chance of pregnancy after a reversal slowly reduces between the age of 30 and 40, with 75% of women accomplishing a positive pregnancy before the age of 35, and 65% between the ages of 35 to 39. There is an increased reduction in pregnancy rates after the age of 40 with up to 34% of women completing a pregnancy.  However, this percentage can be increased to 46% after the age of 40 if the ring tubal ligation method was used.

To increase your chance of pregnancy after a tubal ligation reversal keep in mind that a healthier mum equals a healthier pregnancy and elevated chance of pregnancy. Eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly before and after the reversal to keep your body healthy and ready for pregnancy; Dr. Pickles can answer any concerns you have about diet or exercise, and what activities you should avoid during healing after your reversal.

For any questions concerning tubal ligation reversal feel free to contact our clinic and we will be here to help you pursue your dreams of another baby.
