For those of us that know that we are meant to be mothers there is no getting by that pull of nature. We go through pregnancy, have our babies and then watch them grow. But, what happens when we think we are done having children and have a tubal ligation and then change our minds? Yes, it happens to a lot of us. This is where tubal reversal surgery comes into play and almost becomes every essence of our beings.
Tubal reversal surgery is a procedure that many of us do not hear about until after we have heard about IVF treatments. It is no doubt that many women will search IVF before tubal reversal surgery because there is so much information on it. In a recent article I was reading the magic number for IVF treatments to take and work is six. Yes, six treatments. With the cost of IVF that is about $45,000.00! And this is not considering women risking their lives and spending money, which they do not have to be a mother. I can say I do not personally know too many couples that have this kind of money hanging around.
Tubal reversal surgery costs about $5900.00. This is the price for Dr. Berger of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center. Dr. Berger is widely known as the best tubal reversal surgeon here in the states and many women travel from around the world to have tubal reversal performed by him. He pioneered a low cost, one-hour outpatient procedure that is not only safer than in the hospital setting but less taxing on the patient. Women on the message board cannot believe how fast they are up and moving around with minimal pain after tubal reversal surgery.
For many of the women being able to have the ability to have a child again makes them whole. To hold a newborn in her arms, to smell the baby smell and to be a mom again makes the dream come true. This isn’t for just moms. Many times after a woman has tubal reversal surgery and becomes pregnant there is a first-time dad in the making.
