    Default ivf after tubal ligation

    I have had 4 normal births before my tubes got tied, have since remarried and my hubby doesnt have any children. He had homer sperms (him 39, me 36) and we used ICSI. Have had 2 cycles but to no avail . We have one last attempt next month (due to finances) it just seems unfair that i have had normal babies no miscarriages but ivf not working. I did everything that was listed...but no...any other advice to make this third time successful??? The qfg clinic said ivf would be better than reversing my tubes...

    Default IVF versus tubal reversal

    Hi Cuddlebunny,

    If you have had babies before, you should be able to have a baby again! I think IVF and ICSI is probably a better option than tubal reversal ( cost of tubal reversal is about $5000 and the risk of an ectopic pregnancy is significant). It is important to check there are no additional problems since you had your last baby. Are your thyroid function tests normal? Are your antiphospholipid tests normal? Is your partner taking antioxidants ( eg menevit) to decrease the chance of sperm DNA damage? My feeling is that you have an excellent chance of having another baby. Don't give up!
