I had my tubes tired 13 years ago and now my husband and I would like to have a baby. Is there a way to get pregnate without having my tubes untired or do I need to have them untired? What would be the best way to go?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Women are known to have spontaneous recanalization of tubes after few years of tubal ligation (at times). You should consider discussing your pregnancy plans with your gynecologist/obstetrician and go ahead with getting an HSG (hysterosalpingogram) test done to check for tubal patency. If tubes are found to be patent, you can go ahead with your pregnancy plans. If tubes are still blocked, then you might have to consider option of tubal reversal. If you do not want to do tubal reversal, and if you are having functional ovaries, you can consider option of IVF. Your treating gynecologist/obstetrician is the best to discuss about the options after an initial evaluation. All the best.
