The success rate of a reverse tubal ligation, also known as tubal reanastomosis or tubal sterilization reversal, can vary depending on several factors, including the age of the woman, the length and quality of the remaining fallopian tubes, the type of ligation procedure performed, and the experience of the surgeon performing the procedure.
Generally speaking, success rates for pregnancy after a tubal ligation reversal are highest for women who are younger than 35, have longer and higher-quality remaining tubes, and had their tubes originally tied or clipped rather than completely removed or burned.
Success rates for pregnancy after a tubal ligation reversal can range from around 40% to 85%, with most studies reporting success rates of around 60-75%. However, it’s important to note that not all women who undergo the procedure will become pregnant, and some may experience a higher risk of ectopic pregnancy or other complications. Additionally, success rates may decrease as a woman ages.
It’s important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of tubal ligation reversal with a qualified healthcare provider, and to carefully consider your personal health history and fertility goals before deciding whether the procedure is right for you.
