Pregnancy after tubal clamps
Mon, 08-19-2013 - 9:17pm

Hello I have a few things I'd like to ask if anyone has had this happen. I am 31 years old. Nine years ago after my second child I had my tubes clamped which I now regret. I am in a new relationship and getting married next Spring. We have discussed having a baby and I am not very keen on the idea of getting a tubal reversal b/c of the rate of etopic pregnancy. I was wondering if anyone knew the chances of pregnancy after tubal clamps. Has anyone had this happen?

Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with this.  Have you talked with your Gynecologist about it?  It may also be worth talking to a fertility specialist.  Maybe it's safer to go the invitro route?

Have you posted on the Birth Control board?  Someone there may have experience as well.  I think your best bet is to talk with your doctor.

He has 3 children also so no issue on his part. He's also 25. I was on the depro need for a season and have now been off it for a season and 50 percent but still nothing.
