Tubal reversal does not make you any more likely to have twins or other multiple births. This is a frequent question because of people reading accounts of patients undergoing fertility treatments and having more than one baby. A woman has a one in a hundred chance of having twins unless she has had twins previously then the risk goes up a lot. Our patients (over 3000) have had 23 sets of twins which is just what you would expect, about 1 percent.
If you question is about contraception after a tubal reversal pregnancy we recommend you consider an IUD. These are small pieces of plastic that a doctor inserts in your uterus to prevent pregnancy. If that is not something you want there are hormonal options in the pill or inserted devices. If you must get your tubes tied again please us the clips or rings. They do not damage as much tube as other methods do and they cannot be placed out at the end of the tube where there are a lot of blood vessels. We sometimes do a reversal on patients that we have previously reversed and they do get pregnant but not as often as they would if they had not had their tubes tied a second time.
