I want to know how to get pregnant with your tubes tied and not have it be a tubal pregnancy and I have NO MONEY for a tubal reversal. I was forced to have my tubes tied by my ex but now im with a new guy and want to have his kids.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
After few years of tubal ligation, there are chances of spontaneous recanalization. The incidence/chances of tubal ligation failure or spontaneous recanalization depends on the type of procedure followed to ligate the tubes. Few methods are associated with high incidence of spontaneous recanalization, and few are with very minimal chances of recanalization. If you are having functional ovaries and if you are planning for pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for getting further evaluation done along with a HSG (hysterosalpingogram) test to check for the patency of the fallopian tubes. If the test shows patency of tubes, (along with normal functioning of ovaries), you can go ahead with your pregnancy plans. If tubes are blocked (ligation is present), and non-patent (as shown by the HSG test result), then you will have to undergo surgery for tubal reversal/removal of clips/removal of ligation to make them patent and then try for pregnancy. Look out for development of symptoms suggestive of ectopic pregnancy (chances are high due to scarring if you have opted for reversal). If you do not intend to go ahead with surgery for reversal, or if the surgery cannot be done, you can opt for options like IVF. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further clarification and assistance.
