Case Study
Background: Reversal of tubal ligation is requested by some women for various reasons. The present study aims to determine the rate of pregnancy after tubal ligation reversal. Case: In these case series, we reported fifteen women who requested tuboplasty after tubal ligation. In these cases reversal of tubal ligation was done in 15 women. Pregnancy occurred in 4 women (26.6%). Two term pregnancy and 2 abortions were determined. Conclusion: The success rate of pregnancy after macro surgical reversal of tubal ligation is good and can be considered before in vitro fertilization. The type of tubal ligation and the procedure used will determine the best procedure for reversal and have a major impact on chance of success for reversal surgery.
