My husband and I want another child. I was pressured into having my tubes tided and cut and I was wanting to know at what point in time would my egg pass the point where my tubes were cut. If it was impossible to have another baby without getting this reversed or is it possible to conceive even though I had this done.
If I can conceive with out having it reversed what should I do.
I am so sorry you were pressured to have a tubal ligation, when there are so many alternatives these days. Occasionally they do fail and a woman gets pregnant, but that is relatively rare, so I wouldn't count on that!
Otherwise, your only two choices are a reversal and harvesting your eggs after you take fertility drugs and doing in vitro fertilization. You would need to consult a specialist to see which is the best option for you, given the exact type of surgery you had. There might be cost differences as well. Good luck!
