Reverse Tubal Ligation Helps Families Grow

Women will often say they wish they could have another baby but they made the mistake of having their tubes tied. Some will tell them that they have the option of IVF. For some couples this may be a viable option but for others it is not. Just the cost of IVF can be staggering for many couples. For other couples the thought of IVF is not only scary it seems so unnatural.

If a woman is lucky someone will mention that she can have a tubal reversal or have her tubes untied. Because tubal reversal surgery is not heard of as often as IVF many couples do not know that this is even an option. Many physicians will mention that IVF is an option and totally disregard the tubal reversal information. This is often due to the fact that most physicians are not exposed to tubal reversal while in medical school. It seems a lot of physicians heard about and may have even studied IVF a majority have very little knowledge about tubal ligation reversal.

Tubal reversal is performed by expert surgeons who repair the fallopian tubes to either restore fertility or for relief of Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome. The more experience the surgeon has the better the success with repair. Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center is the only center dedicated solely to tubal reversal surgery. Dr. Berger is an early pioneer in the field of tubal ligation reversal and developed the low cost outpatient procedure. Couples travel from around the world to have Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith perform their reversal surgeries. Because this is the only type of surgeries performed these surgeons have seen cases that were thought to be irreparable. Not only were the fallopian tubes repaired but also healthy pregnancies followed. The fallopian tube repair rate stands at 98% at CHTRC.

If as woman had her tubes tied it does not mean that she cannot have children naturally again. Tubal reversal surgery gives couples the opportunity to have a child the most natural way possible. Not only is reversal surgery less taxing on the woman’s body then IVF it is also more affordable. The couple also has the chance to have more children if they so decide without added medical intervention.

For more information on reverse tubal ligation the nurses can be contacted for a free phone consultation by calling 1-919-968-4656. If conversing with other women is more comfortable the center has a very active tubal reversal message board. Women go to the message board to be able to express their feelings with those who they know will understand.

Post Tubal Ligation Treatment

 

Those seeking Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome treatment seem to hit a brick wall head on most times. Women are convinced that they are having side effects from PTLS but many in the medical world seem to not want to listen. It is amazing how many women are beginning to speak out about PTLS and are making it known that is certainly does exist. And they are searching for help.

 

Most women will state that they know something is wrong with them but the doctors cannot figure out what is causing it. The women are suffering from periods that are out of control, thinning hair, weight gain and they want it all to stop. Another side effect is the mood swings that make PMS look like a walk in the park.

 

For the women that will not take the fact that they are being told PTLS just doesn’t exist they keep searching. The search terms like “problems after tubal ligation” and what they land on is amazing. There are actually others out there suffering from the same thing they are.

 

These women are actually now in a position to talk to others that have suffered with PTLS and found freedom. Their freedom was found through tubal reversal surgery. And there are surgeons that have actually been following how their patients are doing after surgery. Over 90% of women who have gone to Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center for relief of Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome have encountered relief almost immediately.

 

These women that have found Post Tubal Ligation treatment want to scream it to the world. They want the world to know that it actually does exist and they want other women to know that they do not have to suffer. Something that has caused them grief and frustration has been fixed.

 

Both Dr. Gary Berger and Dr. Charles Monteith perform tubal ligation reversal surgery at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center. These surgeons do not perform any other types of surgery. Because this is the only type of surgery performed the surgeons are considered the best in the world. Couples travel from around the world for the relief of Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome.

 

Not too long ago the center began receiving calls from women who were having side effects from the Essure procedure. Prolonged bleeding and pain seemed to be the two main chief complaints. Women are being told that the only way to remove the Essure coils is with a full hysterectomy. Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith have not only managed to reverse the Essure and restore fertility the first Essure Reversal baby was born in 2/2011.

 

Women Are Choosing Essure Removal

Essure is a relatively new form a birth control for women. There are those who love it and wouldn’t choose anything else while there are women who want to have it taken out for various reasons.

Although Essure is still considered new there are women are coming forward and writing about difficulties they have been having since getting the Essure coils. Most seem to be writing about prolonged bleeding and pain and others are having stomach pain located around where the coils are located. Others suspect they may have an allergy to nickel, which is used in making the coils. For others a coil has dislodged and cannot be found which is very disconcerting, to say the least. Essure problems will probably continue to rise due to more women having the procedure performed.

Essure Removal

As women are coming forward and asking about Essure removal they are being told this procedure cannot be reversed. When they push the subject with many in the medical field they are told the only way to have the coils removed is through a hysterectomy.

Tubouterine Implantation

Having to have a hysterectomy to have the coils removed is NOT the only option. The surgeons at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center have been performing Essure reversal using a procedure called tubouterine implantation. This is where the coils and scar tissue is removed from the fallopian tubes and the remaining healthy tube is reattached to the uterus. This is the best option for women who want to have children after the Essure procedure. With the tubouterine implantation the coils are completely removed. With IVF following the Essure procedure for pregnancy the coils are generally left in. Having the coils in place with a pregnancy may cause problems as the pregnancy progresses.

For those who want to have the Essure removed it is possible and without having to have a hysterectomy. The surgeons and staff at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center are more than willing to answer any questions you may have. The tubal reversal nurses can be reached by calling 1-919-968-4656.

What is Tubes Tied Reversal?

 

Tubes tied reversal is procedure in which the fallopian tubes are repaired after having a tubal ligation. Tubal ligation is also called having ones tubes tied. This is a permanent form of female sterilization and is used all over the world.

 

There are times when a woman has had a tubal ligation and wants to have it undone. She may want to have it undone because she wants to have another child or because of Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome. The decision to have the tubes tied reversal is usually after much thought and consideration.

 

Tubes tied reversal costs vary depending on where one seeks to have the surgery. It can cost as much as $20,000.00 but does not need to. There are experts that can perform the procedure at a much lower cost because they have the expertise and capability to be able to offer the procedure at a more cost effective price.

 

At the leading tubal reversal center the procedure is under $7000.00. One may question why such a reduced price while others who perform the tubes tied reversal procedure at such a high cost.

 

The reason is because at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center the surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. This is the only type of surgery that is performed at this unique facility and Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith have dedicated their careers to just this. Because they see only tubes tied reversal patients they have seen many cases where women were told their fallopian tubes were not repairable. Not only were the surgeons able to repair the fallopian tubes but these women also went on to have successful pregnancies.

 

The tubes tied reversal is performed as an outpatient procedure. This not only is safer for the patient but also cuts out the added expense of high hospital costs. The patients are also not subjected to illnesses that are commonly found in the hospital setting. The nurse to patient ratio is also much higher at the center because the center is well staffed with highly trained personnel that choose this career and want to be doing their job.

 

Tubes tied reversal has restored hope to many couples from around the world. Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center has helped over 8000 couples and continues to do so on a daily basis.

 

As the Internet grows so does the tubal reversal awareness. Due to the fact that tubal reversal or tubes tied reversal is not taught in many medical schools many medical students have not seen or studied the benefits.

Long-Term Side Effects of Tubal Ligation

Tubal ligation or tying tubes has been around for many years. Sought after by those who do not want to have children or those who have completed their family. This form of permanent female sterilization is considered very effective.

For some there are no issues after the tubal ligation and these women are very happy with the decision they have made. For others something dreadful begins to take place. There is a name for the many symptoms that take place after a woman has had a tubal ligation. This is what many call Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome. This is becoming more heard about. With the increasing use of the Internet women are making their voices heard across the globe.

Although many in the medical field do not acknowledge PTLS there are a few doctors that do. But before we jump ahead let me just list a few of the symptoms.

  • Painful and heavy periods.
  • Body aches and pains that are unexplained.
  • Mood swings that are worse than PMS.
  • Headaches
  • Weight gain that is not helped by exercising and diet.
  • Unexplained night sweats.
  • Dry itchy and flaking skin.
  • Hair that literally is dry and brittle and thinning and may fall out in clumps.
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Hopelessness
  • Marital problems
  • No desire for sex

This is just a few of the symptoms that many women suffer from after a tubal ligation. What happens next is just as troublesome. The woman will see her physician and explain what is happening. Patient is often told things such as:

  • It is in your head.
  • Get used to it you are getting older.
  • You are just depressed and lets give you a med for it.

Imagine getting this as a response? And some women do begin to second-guess themselves. Sad but true!

Is there help? Yes, there is help and actually surgeons that do believe that PTLS does happen to women. Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center perform just tubal ligation reversal surgery. This center is well known around the world and couples travel from every corner of the globe.

Although many do go to the center to have fertility restored after a tubal ligation to have another baby there are quite a few that seek the procedure to rid themselves of PTLS.

The long-term effects of tubal ligation have women desperate for help. And the great news is that the patients are reporting improvement immediately following their reversal surgery.

For more information on the long-term effects of tubal ligation please visit Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center. The tubal reversal nurses are also available for a free phone consultation by calling 1-919-968-4656.

Tubal Reversal and Success Rates

 

Tubal reversal is a very successful procedure to restore fertility after a tubal ligation. This has been proven many times over but it is amazing that many more couples do not know about it. Although successful many are just not given tubal reversal as an option when they want to have another child after tied tubes.

 

For many it is because their doctors never told them it was available. They go and have a meeting with their doctor and explain that they want another child and nine times out of ten they are told to have the IVF procedure. This is okay for some but for others it is a problem all the way around.

 

With the release of the Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Report 2009 Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center managed to get the word out about tubal ligation reversal. Not only was this study conducted with over 5000 tubal reversal patients but the results are available to anyone who researches them. One of the best already known facts is that tubal reversal has a better pregnancy success rate over IVF.

 

Dr. Gary Berger of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center is the tubal reversal surgeon who made outpatient tubal ligation reversal possible. He is the Medical Director of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center and continues to perform surgery each day. He has performed the most tubal reversal surgeries in the world. He has dedicated his career to help couples desiring children after a tubal ligation.

 

Dr. Charles Monteith is right behind Dr. Berger in carrying on the great success rate of tubal reversal. Dr. Monteith has trained with Dr. Berger and is at the center eac and every day working with couples. He has decided this is the path that he wants to follow because he believes that doctors are here to help people. Couples from around the world travel to this unique center to get quality care in a safe environment to have fertility restored.

 

Although in vitro fertilization does help couples and should not be underplayed it may not be the best option for many. Because doctors have very little exposure to tubal ligation reversal surgery in medical school they are not that informed about it.
