Had a tubal for the last 7 years

Patient

Q: I am 32 years old and I've had a tubal for the last 7 years. I've had 2 children and my then husband talked me into doing because I didn't want any more. Since then I've been divorced and remarried. My current husband has no children and never really wanted any. Well after being together and then getting married in the last year he has changed his mind and now wants a baby. And I would give him a child in a heartbeat. What are my options? Is a reversal in the cards? If so, does insurance cover it? Next question in vitro is that a possibility? And could insurance cover that or is it cash only....we definitely want it to be our baby my egg his sperm.

Doctor

A:   Thank you for question. You have several options before you if you want to get pregnant after a tubal ligation. Yes, it is possible to reverse a tubal ligation but it depends on your age, the type of tubal ligation you had, and the overall health of your ovaries. Tubal ligation reversal is a surgical procedure and it depends on your your personal insurance coverage, if it will be covered. In vitro fertilization is also a possibility as well. Your specific insurance questions should be directed to your insurance company as coverage is different from company to company throughout the world.
