Successful and healthy pregnancy after tubal ligation...

I have a history of ectopic pregnancies, and had 2 prior to having two successful pregnancies. In 2013 I had a c-section and a tubal ligation.This past weekend I found out I was pregnant, and knowing the risk of having an ectopic pregnancy after a tubal ligation is high, I went to the ER. Sure enough a left tubal ectopic pregnancy. I received methotrexate to terminate the pregnancy, and we are now checking my Beta levels to ensure it is working. I have an appointment today to discuss options, including fixing my tubal ligation. We have been discussing the option of a tubal reversal in the future, but if my tubal failed is there a possibility of a successful pregnancy? Has anyone had an ectopic pregnancy post tubal ligation, and then a successful pregnancy without a reversal?

Thank you,
Brandie

"Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" is wrong. My healthy 7 week old says otherwise. I had a successful term pregnancy after a ligation, and my tubes were still severed (but are now removed). I had my ligation done during my csection for my second child. So while I haven't had entropic, if an egg can make its way around under a complete severance and cauterization, I'm fairly sure some scar tissue isn't impossible. Potentially dangerous yes, but possible.

I think a reversal or maybe a LAP would help clear any scar tissue that may be causing the ectopic pregnancies. also look into serrapeptise enzyme its been shown to reduce scar tissue and help some ladies unblock the tubes. sounds like you have a mild blockage where the sperm can get through but the egg is much larger and is not able to make it down the tubes.

Ok Brandie. *shaking head*. Good luck with that. Clearly you know your body so well, that you can predict what will happen with continuous ectopic pregnancies. I am glad you are so in tuned with your Fallopian tubes.

I guess i should add that I have to get blood drawn and visit my OB/GYN every 3 days until my Beta levels are back to zero. We have had many open dialogues about the risks of another ectopic, but also the possibility of a successful pregnancy without getting a tubal reversal. I know my body well, and if a tubal is caught before a rupture, like my past 3 have, then methotrexate can be used every time. He also provided me with a success story that recently happened. The words NEVER and NOT POSSIBLE, should only be used when you are 100% sure a woman can not have a normal pregnancy - like in the case of a hysterectomy. I appreciate any and all advice, but we need to be informative and be sure we are educated on the topic if we are going to reply to someone's post. On that note, a big thank you to Lisa (below) for offering helpful tools. I spoke with my PCP and my OB/GYN about serrapeptase and will be starting it, as soon as my levels are down to zero. Thank you!

I have spoken to my Dr. And Yes, it is possible to have a normal pregnancy afterward. I am a well educated woman in the medical field... I was not asking for medical advice! I am asking for other stories like mine. Thank you though.

You really need to talk to your doctor again. No, you will NOT have a normal pregnancy after a tubal. It will be life threatening, and silly to risk your life.

Great advice! Thank you, Lisa... I will do some research on that and mention it to my Dr.

Thank you for replying Lisa. I had an appt. today and the Dr. told me that I am at a high risk of pregnancy but it would most likely be ectopic again. We had planned a reversal in a couple years, but seems kind of pointless if I can clearly get pregnant without the tubal. I was just hoping someone has had the same situation where they had a tubal ligation, ectopic pregnancy and then a healthy pregnancy without needing a reversal.

The tubal ligation surgery would cost us $15,000, including travel and hotel that is required by the hospital that would do the surgery. We've done our research. My question was if anyone has had a successful pregnancy after ectopic ptegnancy after tubal ligation...

Tubal ligation reversals are not covered by insurance, and can run around $3,000. Insurance should cover fixing it to make you sterile, not reversing.

U don't have to be rude Michelle but I would like to see you raise three kids on your own work two jobs to support your children besides I can't do much because the hospital I went to its like a college training people as doctors that don't know anything and in my town that is the only stupid hospital I don't have $400 to pay to get to another town to see a doctor
