Success Rate

The most important factor in determining if tubal reversal will work for you is your underlying fertility. Some couples get pregnant easily and some have difficulty. If it was easy for you to get pregnant before your tubes were tied you have a better chance of success with reversal than woman who had a hard time conceiving before her tubes were tied. It’s important to note that reversing your tubal ligation is very unlikely to make you more fertile than you were before your tubes were tied. In the first place you are older.

Sometimes we see things that can improve a woman’s fertility but not often. When we do and it’s safe to fix them we do these things at no charge. One benefit of doing no more than 3 operations a day is that we always have time to do the extras.

We have seen some absurd claims about success rate with reversal. The term for a woman’s chance to conceive is “fecundity” and it is well known for each age group. Your underlying fertility is about 75% in your twenties, approximately 62% from 31 to 35 and 54% from 35 to 40. If you are given information that a facility can guarantee a better result that is deceptive and unethical in my opinion. We constantly look at our pregnancy rates and they are within a percentage point of a woman’s natural fertility. Some things about you and your family are hints of better than average fertility. If you or any woman on your mother’s side had twins or a baby after 40 years of age that is good. If you ever got pregnant on birth control pills you have better than average fertility. If you don’t get pregnant after reversal it is unlikely that your tubes will be at fault.
