Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hi, It's Dr. C. Board certified Ob-gyne. I can help you today. Overall, the money would be better spent going directly to IVF. Most insurance companies do not cover reversals and there is really no guarantee at all of success, especially with thermal damage to the tubes. And even if they were able to reanastamose the tubes, the risk of tubal pregnancy would remain high. The cost for the surgery and the unknown success rate is usually considered to be too high relative to IVF which is still costly (about the same) but would have a much higher chance of success. I don't know of any fertility doctors who would advise tubal reanastamosis over going directly to IVF.
I hope this was helpful. Please let me know if I can clarify anything. Good luck.
