Tubal Ligation Reversal

Tubal Ligation Reversal and tubal reversal

Tubal ligation is the surgical procedure commonly known as “tying the tubes”.

Tubal ligation sterilizes a woman by preventing transport of the egg to the uterus, and by blocking the passage of sperm up the tube to the ovary.

Tubal ligation can be reversed with a procedure called Tubal Ligation Reversal.

Tubal ligation reversal can be performed if a woman later chooses to become pregnant. Following tubal ligation reversal, about 50% to 80% of women eventually become pregnant.
