Tubal Reversal and The Pregnancy Rate
Many people don’t know that the tubal ligation is not the permanent birth control. It can be reversed through a surgery called a tubal reversal. It is an outpatient surgery that gives very satisfactory results.
Every year hundreds of women undergo tubal ligation every year. Some women regret their decision and want to untie or repair their tubes. The tubes can be efficiently repaired with the help of tubal reversal, and there are high pregnancy rates too.
The surgery of tubal ligation reversal is done under anesthesia so that the patient does not feel any pain. The operation does not take much longer to perform. The recovery time is short. Woman after tubal reversal can start their routine works in two weeks. They can have a healthy pregnancy and give birth to healthy babies too. Women can get pregnant more than once after they get their tubes tied after tubal reversal.
The successful pregnancy is dependent on some factors. The main factor is the age. Younger women have high pregnancy rates as compared to older women. Women who are younger than 35 years have high pregnancy rates. The women who are younger than 30 years have the pregnancy rate of 77 percent. The reason is that their ovarian reserve is good, so their chances of getting pregnant are also more.
Women who are above 40 very rarely conceive and the percentage of pregnancy is only 34 percent. Tubal ligation reversal is more successful, and the pregnancy rate is high if the ligation is performed by using clips or rings. The type of tubal ligation performed is also the success factor of the successful pregnancy. If the clips are used, the pregnancy rate is 78 percent and if the rings are used the successful pregnancy rate is 76 percent. Ligation/Resection method has 66 percent pregnancy rate. If the method of the ligation is not known, then the chances of successful pregnancy are less.
The remaining length of the fallopian tube is critical in pregnancy. If the remaining duration of the tube is very short, the pregnancy is less likely and in many cases impossible to occur. If the fallopian tube length is 7.5 cm or more, the pregnancy rate is 77 %. In many cases women having the duration of the fallopian tube of 2.5 percent also got pregnant.
The tubes which are long in length show better pregnancy results as compared to the cells with short length. The risk of ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage is also present. The risk of ectopic after tubal ligation reversal is 2 percent higher than the ectopic pregnancy rate in normal circumstances.
If the patient gives proper time to her body to heal, the pregnancy is more likely to be successful. Every woman who is planning for tubal reversal must know the pregnancy statistics after the procedure.
The pregnancy rate usually depends on the surgeon and the clinic where you will have your treatment. If the surgeon is experienced and skilled, the pregnancy chances are more so you must always choose an experienced surgeon.
