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

Yes, artificial insemination can be tried if your tubes are tied. Ovum and sperm are made to fertilize outside the body and inseminated in a uterus made ready for it. Both, your own egg can be retrieved from the ovary or a donor egg can also be used for this. Hope this helps. Take care!
