Tubal Ligation Reversal
I`m a healthy 23 years old whose had a tubal ligation in `07, after my third daughter. If I remember correctly, I was cauterized, I think, three times on each side. With tubal ligation reversal, what are the chances of becoming pregnant?
Your success rates would depend upon the location of ligation, as well as amount of tube remaining following tubal reversal. In general, success rates tend to range between 50 and 70%.
