Information on In-Vitro Fertilization & Tubal Ligation Reversal

A tubal ligation procedure is undertaken only after a lot of thought and consideration as it is normally seen as something that will be permanent. Many women who do go down this route then regret it years later when they realize they do want more children. Pregnancy rates after a reversal tubal ligation are high and the covalence period is quick. This could be the option for you if you want to add to your family.

It is not automatic that you can have your tubal ligation reversed. To find out more, then visit a tubal reversal doctor who will carry out an appraisal by examining your fallopian tubes with the aid of a laparoscope. This is a tiny camera used to investigate the insides of your tubes to assess their health. The factors that will determine if the reversal specialist thinks your tubes are fit enough to operate on include how they have been blocked (tubal occlusion), how healthy your tubes look after investigation and how much of your fallopian tube is remaining to be re-attached, your age and current health will also be taken into account

Frequently Asked Questions

    How long is it considered "normal" to bleed after a c-section/tubal ligation?
    I have been bleeding now for 6 weeks since my c-section/tubal ligation. It slowed down after 4 weeks and then I had what felt like menstrual cramps. Then the bleeding got heavier again for about 5 days and then disappeared and now it is back. Is this normal??

    • ANSWER:
      It is normal to bleed slightly (spotting) for up to 2 weeks post C-Section or tubal ligation. From then on you should have stopped bleeding.

      4-5 weeks post section you would be expecting your period as normal anyway which is what probably the heavier bleed was.

      However, your story sounds a bit strange so definitely talk to your doctor about it ASAP.

    How long do your menestrual last after a c-section and tubal ligation?
    I had my c-section almost two months ago on the 28th and I wanted to know how long are you suppose to bleed? It's slowing down finally, but sometimes it will cease and than come back. I am not in any pain, but I wanted to hear from someone who had a tubal ligation. I had this procedure done and they say it makes you bleed longer, but how longer? I asked my doctor and he said it is different for some women.

    • ANSWER:
      I had a c-section and tubal ligation and I did bleed more than I did from a previous c-section. It took about 6 or 7 weeks for me. The key is to drink tons of water, more than you think you need and it goes away faster.

    heavy bleeding after tubal ligation is it normal?
