Possibility Of Getting Pregnant Again After Being Sterile By Binding?
Good morning, my doctor, I want to ask if I am 43 years old already sterile, tie it, not cut it, can I open the sterile to get pregnant again? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Steady contraception is a type of permanent contraception that prevents fertilization for life. The success rate for steady contraception is fairly high, almost reaching 100%.
In women steady contraception is called tubectomy. Tubectomy is performed by binding or cutting the fallopian tubes (tubes) in women to prevent the meeting of the sperm and eggs and prevent the egg from sticking to the uterus.
If the tubectomy procedure is only done without cutting, the possibility of pregnancy is still there after the detachment of the fallopian tubes. However, this is not an easy procedure to perform, and the chances of getting pregnant are not as great as before the tubectomy because there is a risk of narrowing of the fallopian tubes after binding.
If the tubectomy procedure is performed with cutting, reconnection of the two ends of the fallopian tubes may also be performed which is called a tubal anastomosis procedure. However, after this procedure, the chances of getting pregnant are still relatively small, which is about 40-50% compared to the chance before the tubectomy. The procedure carried out is not easy.
We recommend that you discuss your questions again with the doctor who performed the tubectomy, because only he or she knows exactly what type of surgery was performed on you, so most likely he also knows what procedures to do if you want to reopen the fallopian tubes and the chance of pregnancy afterward.
Another alternative if you still want to have children after the tubectomy procedure that is reconnected but has not yet produced fertilization is to do the in vitro fertilization procedure, better known as IVF. Also discuss further with your doctor or obstetrician if you are interested in this method.
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and is useful :)
