This is one of the most frequently asked questions we receive, Which draws our attention to it.

So What are the options for couples who desire to conceive following tubal sterilization?

  Life is full of surprises. Circumstances with the time change, priorities change and family-building goals may change accordingly.

That is why many women Despite having consented to permanent sterilization, request information regarding fertility options.

The categorical options are either surgery to reverse the sterilization (tubal reversal) or in vitro fertilization (IVF).

The decision between IVF and a tubal reversal is difficult and Many factors may influence the decision-making process. such as age, cost, time as well as the presence of other potential infertility problems.

So keeping it all in mind we suggest the first step towards parenthood should be to seek professional advice with our experts, who have performed thousands of IVF cycles and dealt with tubal reversal surgeries. This will help guide you through the process of choosing which procedure will bring the best chance in successfully conceiving.

 We at Gaudium IVF strongly recommend  in vitro fertilization (IVF):

In vitro fertilization has become the most dominating technique for conceiving in women with abnormal or blocked fallopian tubes. 

Since its introduction, the technique has gone under a sea of revolution. Success rates have improved dramatically and it is now implemented in many additional fertility problems such as severe malefactors and unexplained infertility. In essence. The events which ordinarily occur in the fallopian tubes occur in the laboratory, providing a sort of tubal bypass in IVF.


  • Choosing IVF means future birth control is not needed, as the fallopian tubes remain tied and if the reversal surgery does not correct the tubes, IVF will still be required.
  •  Success rates of IVF are higher to a tubal reversal.
  • The ectopic rate for IVF is 1%. Ectopic pregnancy rates for tubal reversals is 20%. Ectopics are those that fail & require emergency treatment
  •  Tubal reversals costs are comparable to IVF but with  far more risks and less chance of success
  • IVF is far less invasive
  • Tubal reversals require  surgery. IVF does not.
  • The time to pregnancy with a tubal ligation reversal can take many months in contrast, IVF is much quicker.
  • IVF allows selection of the healthiest embryos for transfer and often a choice among several embryos.
  • A semen analysis of male partner is  always necessary prior to surgery; and if the findings are not normal, tubal reversal is extremely unlikely to result in a successful conception.
  • IVF does not require a hospital stay or extended recovery period; they often require major surgery with a hospital stay.
