Regardless of the confidence level that a woman has that she will not want to conceive again, she may change her mind. A successful tubal ligation reversal (also known as tubal sterilization reversal) will leave the woman able to have as many children as she wants. The egg is collected at the fimbrial end by the fallopian tube and carried to the uterus. Typically, the tubal ligation reversal procedure is about 50% to 80%. The chances of getting pregnant after a reversal are dependent on the length of the remaining fallopian tube, even with a successful reconnection. A tubal ligation reversal can be successfully carried out as long as the fimbrial end has not been damaged.
