There are many reasons why a woman may choose to have a tubal ligation surgery. First of all, she might decide that she never wants to have children in the first place. Secondly, some women have had children and decide that they are finished so they get their tubes tied. In some cases, a woman feels like she is in a particular situation that is not safe or healthy to bring a child into so she opts to have a tubal ligation. As with any decisions that we make in our lives, sometimes we come to regret it. For those women, they may start to wonder how to get pregnant after tubal ligation.

It might seem impossible to get pregnant after having your tubes tied since it is supposed to be a permanent form of female sterilization. The idea is to block the fallopian tubes in such a way that the eggs cannot travel from the ovaries into the uterus. However, there are a couple of options for women who decide that they do want to get pregnant after having their tubes tied. Actually, in a small number of cases there are even accidental pregnancies after tubal ligation due to a variety of factors.

For those women who actually want to get pregnant after a tubal ligation, one option is in vitro fertilization. In fact, this is one of the main options that their doctor will probably explain to them. As with any kind of procedure, there are some negatives to IVF. The main negative factor is the cost as it can be very exorbitant for a couple to get pregnant. Each cycle usually costs between $10,000 and $12,000. There is only a 35 percent chance of success in any given cycle which means that many couples end up having to do IVF repeatedly. Obviously, finances can get very tight very quickly with in vitro fertilization.

A lesser-known option is tubal reversal surgery which is where the tubes are reattached so that conception can happen naturally. The great thing about this procedure is that it has up to an 80 percent chance of success and is a permanent solution to the problem. In addition, it costs substantially less than in vitro fertilization and requires only a one time charge.

For women who are exploring the option of how to get pregnant after tubal ligation, check out the Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center's website at They have an extraordinary amount of information for women who are considering the idea of tubal ligation reversal.
