Infertility

How To Get Pregnant?

09/05/2008

Question:

I had my tubes burned & tied, but now my husband and I want a child. So, how do we get pregnant with me having my tubes burned & tied?

Answer:

In this case, you have two options for conceiving:

1. Tubal Reversal - this is an operation where the tubes are connected using tiny sutures.  It can be performed through a small open incision, or through a laparoscope (telescope through the belly button) using robotic assistance. 

2. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) - a procedure in which your ovaries are stimulated with fertility medications to make extra eggs, with the eggs being removed from the ovaries and mixed with your husband's sperm; 2 embryos would be transferred into the uterus with any extra embryos frozen. 

I would suggest that you speak with your physician about these options.
