Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you had your tubes tied in 2000 and now want to get pregnant, then you will have to go for a tubal ligation reversal procedure. The success rate of pregnancy after reversal is 50-50 as at times there is blockage or infection after the reversal procedure. In some women where there are no complications, the success rate is very high. Hope this helps. Take care!
