Tubal Reversal Surgery



Tubal reversal surgery is a procedure aimed at restoring fertility in women who have previously had their tubes tied. Mate Fertility does not perform tubal reversal surgeries, however, IVF is actually a much more successful means of conception after getting your tubes tied (tubal ligation). If your fallopian tubes have been tied and you wish to have a baby, you should consider In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) as an alternative method to achieve pregnancy for several reasons.

Higher Success Rates

IVF can provide higher success rates compared to attempting a tubal reversal surgery, especially if the tubes were tied using methods that are challenging to reverse. IVF boasts higher success rates compared to tubal reversal. It can offer success rates of up to 40% or more per cycle, depending on factors like age and overall health.

Less Invasive and No Tubal Damage

IVF is a minimally invasive procedure that involves an egg retrieval and embryo transfer. It does not require major abdominal surgery, reducing the risk of postoperative complications, time spent under anesthesia, and recovery period. Tubal reversal surgery involves surgical reconstruction of the fallopian tubes, which can be more complex and carry additional risks.

Reproductive Choice

IVF offers individuals or couples the choice to have biological children after undergoing tubal ligation, regardless of their current reproductive circumstances. IVF can be tailored to individual circumstances, allowing for a more personalized approach to fertility treatment.


IVF bypasses the fallopian tubes entirely by retrieving eggs directly from the ovaries and fertilizing them with sperm in the laboratory. This can be more efficient than attempting to repair or reconnect the fallopian tubes. By completely bypassing the fallopian tubes, this is a better option for women whose tubes may be damaged or compromised due to previous ligation procedures.

Timing and Control

IVF allows precise timing of conception, making it easier to schedule and coordinate the process. IVF can be combined with other assisted reproductive technologies, such as preimplantation genetic testing (PGT), if needed.
