User Profile
i was just wondering if u can still get pregnant after haveing filshie clips appied my husband and i thought at the time it was a good idea to get them tied but now we both would like to try for one more ive realized i made a mistake in getting them tied but i was wondering if there was a way i could get pregnant without a reversal but i cant really afford a reversal and i also didnt know if there were any programs that help couples conceieve after tubal ligation. i had alot of things going on at the time of wanting to get my tubes tied. i guess i started thinking about god gave me the gift of being able to have children and i kinda took that gift away from myself and didnt even realize it so im very desperate for another baby i even went on website for surrogacy just to make money so i can get my tubes reversed

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sometimes you can have your fallopian tubes get recanalized spontaneously after a few years. To check the patency of tubes, go ahead with getting a HSG (hysterosalpingogram) test done by your gynecologist. If the test shows patency of tubes, (along with normal functioning of ovaries and hormonal levels), you can go ahead with your pregnancy plans. If tubes are blocked, and non-patent, then you will have to undergo surgery for tubal reversal to make them patent and then try for pregnancy.
If tubal reversal cannot be done (or if you do not want to opt for it), you can consider discussing about other options like IVF, ICSI etc with your treating gynecologist/obstetrician. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
