REVERSAL OF TUBAL LIGATION

Tubal ligation can be reversed. It involves making an incision to remove the obstructed pieces of tube and reuniting both ends using a microscope. This is usually a major surgical procedure requiring an abdominal incision and a brief post-operative hospital stay. In general, tubal ligation reversal is not recommended for women 37 years of age or older. In this case, IVF is usually a better option.
