Because of changes in the circumstances of your life, you’ve decided that you and your partner would like to have a baby.  The only problem is, you’ve had female sterilization and you’re not sure what your options are.  There’s no reason to give up hope.  Many couples have achieved pregnancy following reversal of female sterilization, and at The Female Sterilization Reversal Clinic, that’s what we specialise in.

If the thought of having surgery to reverse your tubal ligation makes you nervous, we’ve found that being informed about how the procedure is done will help. It it is easier for you, there is an information leaflet that you can download to assist you.

You’ll be pleased to know that the surgery itself only takes about an hour, from start to finish.  Depending on how you’re feeling following the surgery, you’ll have to spend a night or two in the hospital.  You’ll also need to enlist your partner or a friend to drive you home.  Around a month or so after surgery, you’ll be back to your normal activities.

Our surgeon’s name is Mr Samuel Dobson, and he has a high success rate performing surgeries just like yours.  To perform your surgery, Mr Dobson will remove the clip that has closed one of your fallopian tubes or tidy the cut ends of the tubes.  He will then feed a nylon thread through both of the opened ends of the tube before stitching them back together with very fine stitches.  The nylon thread is then removed and your outside incision (which will be very small) is closed with only one stitch.  During the procedure, you will receive a general anaesthetic.

Complications following the reversal of female sterilization include bruising at the incision site, which is normal.  Scarring is minimal as the incision (if you have open surgery) is made over any c section scar you might have. Rarely, you could also experience an infection at the incision site, which is taken care of easily with antibiotics.

As you recuperate at home, it’s a good idea to take it easy for the first week.  However, you can gradually introduce your regular activities at a slow pace.  It won’t be long, and you’ll be back to your old self, and ready to start trying to get pregnant. Mr Dobson usually advises to wait at least three weeks after surgery before resuming intercourse.

We’ve helped so many women to have a baby when they thought all hope was lost.  We’d love the opportunity to help you as well.  For more information on our female sterilization reversal, contact us today.
