What is tubal ligation reversal surgery?
Tubal ligation surgery is surgery that reverses the tubal ligation process. It’s intended to restore fertility to people who have had blocks or cuts in their uterine tubes. Tubal ligation prevents eggs released by the ovaries from reaching the uterus. It’s a permanent form of birth control, and it’s 99 percent successful at preventing pregnancy. It’s considered to be one of the best contraception options for people who have had high-risk pregnancies in the past or who are unable to take hormonal birth control and don’t want any future pregnancies.
Can you get your tubes untied? Possibly, although the procedure is considered major abdominal surgery. Here’s an overview of the process.
