ASK THE DOCTOR - Robert DeSantis, MD, FACOG is an OB/GYN at Trinity Medical Center. He discusses Tubal Ligation Reversal and takes viewers questions. Tubal ligation is surgery to close or block a woman's fallopian tubes so eggs released from the ovaries cannot enter the uterus and sperm cannot reach the egg. The procedure is done to prevent pregnancy. It is also called female sterilization surgery, or "getting your tubes tied."  The fallopian tubes may be closed by tying the tubes together, sealing them closed using a ring or clip, or burning (cauterizing) them together using a mild electric current. Tubal ligation is intended to be a permanent form of birth control. However, some women may regret their decision and later wish to become pregnant. In these cases, surgery to reverse the procedure may be an option. This surgery is called tubal ligation reversal, tubal reanastomosis, or tubal reversal. Tubal ligation reversal is surgery to reopen, untie, or reconnect a woman's fallopian tubes so she can become pregnant.
