One of the biggest fears of women who are approaching the age of 35 and wanting a tubal reversal is if they will conceive.
Although this is a common fear the fact is that many of the patients who are the age of 35 or approaching it do become pregnant. Many understand that it may take a bit longer because we are getting older and well our eggs are too.
If you are concerned whether or not you are still ovulating regularly there are tests that can be performed such as measuring the FSH level to check on the reserve of eggs that you have. This can be done through your regular physician before scheduling the tubal reversal.
Many of the women that are seeking tubal reversal and wondering what their chances of getting pregnant after 35 meet on the tubal reversal message board on the Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center website. Many are concerned about their age and want to make sure that others have managed to conceive. It is amazing that now in this day and age many more women are waiting to begin their families and tubal reversal patients are fitting right in. Many times women have had their children young and thought they were done and have changed their minds after a tubal ligation. For others is was a new relationship that brought on the change of heart.
What if my partner is older?
If your partner is older and you want to make sure his sperm quality is good this can also be done through a test. The general practitioner should be able to order this test. Many times it is common for a couple to have al the tests run before embarking on the tubal reversal journey. There is nothing wrong with making sure all systems are working properly!
But,what if I have more questions?
The tubal reversal nurses at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center are available to answer your question seven days a week. They are more than happy to answer any questions concerning tubal reversal surgery, the benefits and age concerns you may have.
