Had tubes tied 4 years ago, how likely is it to become pregnant again ever??
I had a tubal 10 years ago and now am 33 yrs old and would like to have another child. I have been seeing a fertility specialist. A tubal ligation is 99% effective at preventing future pregnancy, so your chance of becoming pregnant on your own is less than 1%. I am early in the process but have learned that if you want to become pregnant you have 2 options. You can have surgery to reverse the tubal which is around $6000 or more depending on the Dr and from what I've researched has a 50/50 chance of working(which didn't seem like very good chance to me considering the price tag). The other option is to start the process of IVF, which is more expensive but has a greater chance of you getting pregnant. So, this is just basically what I've learned so far.
The 99% is in the first year (and it is more like 99.9%), then the longer you have had your tubes tied, the less likely it is that you will get pregnant. Since it has been 4 years, I would say your chances are slim to none. It is normal to think about wanting more babies especially as yours grow up and out of the baby stage.
