Many women never know they have blocked fallopian tubes until they try to become pregnant. After a year of trying many see a fertility specialist and this is when it is discovered. Of course, any woman trying to conceive and being told she is infertile is heartbreaking. And many do not even think of tubal surgery. The only thing that goes through the mind is, “I may not ever be able to have a child”.
Blocked fallopian tubes can be caused by a number of things. Tubal infection or a previous tubal infection such as Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), endometriosis or any other reason that can cause blocked tubes and cause infertility.
When a woman sees a fertility specialist and is diagnosed with blocked tubes she is usually told that the only way to be able to get pregnant will have to be through IVF. The amazing thing is that most times tubal surgery is never mentioned. This is not always the physician’s fault. In much of the medical training today it is IVF that is taught as the only treatment for infertility. Tubal surgery surgeons are not nearly as common.
Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center is solely dedicated to helping women with tubal ligation reversal and tubal surgery to repair damaged or blocked fallopian tubes. Tubal surgery is much more natural than IVF as the couple has a repeated chance to conceive each month. The price of tubal surgery is also far less than IVF treatments. The cost of tubal surgery is about $5000-$6000. The cost of one treatment of IVF can be as much as $10,000 in the US.
Tubal surgery nurses are available for a free phone consultation everyday including holidays. Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center has an extensive website that contains a message board where women who have already had tubal surgery discuss their experience.
