“Reversing tubal clips provides an excellent chance of success.”
Posted 24th February, 2013
Often we are asked by patients if simply removing tubal clips will allow you to become pregnant.
When tubal clips are placed they cause the tube to divide and the ends near the clip will both separate and close. If the clips are simply removed pregnancy will not happen because the tube will still be closed.
Reversing clips provides an excellent chance of success. During a clip reversal the clips are removed and the closed ends of the tube are opened and rejoined. The chance of pregnancy after reversal of clips can be as high as 90% for some women.
This photo of baby Alabama was sent to us by his mother, Nicole, after she came to Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center and had a successful reversal of her tubal clip ligation.
