Q: Can I get pregnant after a lubal ligation? What are my options?

A: A tubal ligation is a surgical procedure done to prevent you from getting pregnant. It usually destroys portions of the fallopian tubes and prevents the egg from meeting the sperm. There are generally two options if you want to get pregnant again after a tubal ligation:

  • Tubal reanastomosis, also known as tubal reversal (surgery to open and reattach the tubes), or
  • IVF (in vitro fertilization)
