It is slowly becoming a known fact that tubal ligation reversal is the most successful treatment for women choosing to have a child after tubal ligation (tubes tied). Dr. Gary Berger of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center has just completed a very detailed pregnancy study. The difference with this study is that it was conducted on a large number of women (over 5000) whereas in the past studies the numbers were extremely small.
A woman choosing to have a baby after tubal ligation is very common. Many want another child due to a new relationship, suffering from PTLS symptoms, or the loss of a child.
What many do not realize is that tubal ligation (considered permanent) is reversible. Not only is it reversible but also can be reversed through outpatient, one hour, low cost surgery. The sad truth is that even at this time many physicians still believe that IVF is the only alternative treatment. The outcome of this study not only shows that tubal ligation reversal is not only successful for most women but also has a better pregnancy rate.
When a woman is searching for information on IVF is very easy to find. Be it on the Internet or at the CDC (Centers For Disease Control). Tubal ligation reversal pregnancy and birth statistics are very hard to find on the other hand. With this report and statistics being completed on a very large number of women who have had tubal ligation reversal there is now more than enough evidence that tubal ligation reversal does work.
