Female sterilisation is considered a permanent method of birth control. This procedure involves either clipping, applying rings, coagulation, ligation (tying) or resection (cutting) the fallopian tubes apart. Female sterilisation prevents pregnancy in two ways. It prevents the egg from leaving the fallopian tubes and it stops the sperm from reaching the egg. There are many reasons why women decide to be sterilized: they do not want any more children, they have poor health or their child, or their partner is not well, or they are in a poor relationship. However, life does change paths and often these same women find themselves in new situations where another child is a very much wanted addition to their family.
It is due to this change in circumstances or simply a change of heart that many women find themselves asking if they can fall pregnant after being sterilised? The answer to that question is yes, through female sterilization reversal.
A female sterilisation can be reversed successfully. Approximately 98 percent of women who have been sterilised will be considered a suitable candidate for a tubal ligation reversal. Age is not usually considered a negative factor but may require blood tests to ascertain levels of fertility.
The effectiveness of female sterilisation reversal is maximised by having the reversal procedure conducted by a reputable surgeon. Mr Pickles at the BMI Park Hospital in Nottingham has conducted many female sterilisation reversals with great results. Around 84% of Mr Pickles patients become pregnant and 76% of women have gone onto to have a baby after their reversal operations. Women who have the highest success rate of getting pregnant after sterilization are between the ages of 30 and 35. A healthy uterus and quality eggs also increase a woman’s chances of conceiving.
It is possible to arrange either a face-to-face or telephone consultation with Mr Pickles. There is a fixed price for the procedure as well as a finance package. Mr Pickles’ post operative care focuses on ensuring that you have the maximum chance of becoming pregnant.
