Pregnancy after a tubal ligation, is that even possible?

Salpingoclasia or tubal ligation is a permanent method of contraception. However, there are alternatives that provide women the opportunity to get pregnant following salpingoclasia.

Many women wonder whether they can still have a baby after undergoing salpingoclasia surgery.

What is salpingoclasia?

Salpingoclasia or tubal ligation is a method of birth control that is considered permanent. It consists of preventing sperm and eggs from passing through the fallopian tubes by cutting, cauterizing or tying the tubes, thus preventing fertilization. 

In the United States alone, more than 650,000 women undergo salpingoclasia annually.

Can a woman with a tubal ligation regain the ability to have a baby?

Although tubal ligation is considered a permanent sterilization method, there are several procedures that make it possible to conceive a baby again. The best method depends on the individual couple and the specialist providing the treatment.

What are my options if I want to have a baby following salpingoclasia?

In the past, after a woman had her tubes tied, it was practically impossible for her to have a baby.

Now, with the right technological advances and improvements to assisted reproduction techniques, at Ingenes, we give you the option to have a baby through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).

 In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

This assisted reproduction technique is performed in a laboratory so that the fallopian tubes are not involved in conceiving a baby.

Assisted reproduction professionals recreate the conditions inside the mother’s uterus in a specialized laboratory, where the gametes (egg and sperm) are joined together in a petri dish.

Once the egg and sperm have been united, the resulting gamete growth is monitored for several days following fertilization.

After the monitoring period, the most suitable gametes are selected and transferred to the mother’s uterus using specialized instruments.

At Ingenes, prior to this procedure, we perform an evaluation to rule out any condition that could interfere with the correct implantation and growth of the gametes.

Are there any risks associated with IVF following salpingoclasia?

A reproductive specialist must monitor the patient during ovarian stimulation to avoid ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome or multiple pregnancies. These are possible risks, but they can be easily prevented with the supervision of a specialized doctor.

It is important to note that once IVF is completed, the patient should wait about two weeks to take a pregnancy test. It is recommended to use a progesterone supplement administered vaginally or intramuscularly until the day of the pregnancy test, and continued for a period of 8 to 10 weeks following a positive test. This hormone helps to thicken the lining of the uterus and thus facilitates proper implantation of the embryo.

However, each case is unique, along with its associated treatment. To find out if you are a candidate for IVF, the first step is to make an appointment with Ingenes. One of our trained specialists will provide you with an accurate diagnosis and come up with a resulting treatment plan.

Then, what can I do?

To get the complete picture, it’s important to attend the appointment with your partner to determine any infertility conditions present in both parties, giving you the most accurate and timely diagnosis.

For mom, the diagnosis is carried out through a transvaginal ultrasound. This consists of introducing a soft catheter into the vagina, which is both quick and painless. The procedure enables us to evaluate the ovaries and uterus to diagnose any infertility conditions.

For dad, we administer a seminogram to evaluate the quantity and quality of the spermatozoa present in the ejaculate.

Once the specialist has provided you with a diagnosis, they will then recommend the best alternative to have a baby, taking into account your salpingoclasia.

At Ingenes, we offer comprehensive programs to help you have a baby. They include everything you need, from diagnosis to the most advanced techniques of assisted reproduction in order to achieve your dream.
