Hello! My name is***** and I will take the time to answer your question =)

It depends on the method of tubal ligation that you had (if the tubes were burned, cut, how much was removed, etc), but the person you need to see is a reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist (they are a specialized OBGYN). They usually specialize in doing tubal re anastomosis (putting back together the cut ends). It is an expensive procedure but there is a possibility it can be reversed-- it is not always successful though. Your other option would be to do in vitro fertilization where the eggs are taken directly from your ovary, fertilized, and placed in your uterus (it bypasses the need for tubes).

Hope this helps.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
