    Default Tubal ligation reversal

    Hi, I've just started thinking about going back for another baby...after 20 years...but hey it's taken me this long to find the right guy. Unfortunately, I had my tubes clamped four years ago, partially due to some medical history information which I have since found out was incorrect and also because I was married at the time and he was absolutely certain he did not want a child and I stupidly thought we'd be married forever (lol!). My questions for anyone out there that can help me please are:

    Is tubal ligation reversal covered by Medicare?
    What do people think of IVF vs tubal ligation reversal?

    Cheers, Zibbiddy

    Default Tubal ligation reversal

    Hi I've only just seen your post...

    I had an appointment to see about having a tubal ligation reversal last Wednesday.. We didn't go into the costs of it completely but it would cost around $5000 out of pocket.. Some of it has only recently been covered by Medicare.
    Your best option would be to book in and see the surgeon/gyno and see what suits you best. They can do some blood work to see how many eggs you have left also if they cut and clamped your tubes there may not be enough to rejoin them.
    We have decided that IF we decide about having another bub in a few years then IVF would be better for us!!!
    Best of luck on your new baby journey

    Thanks for that, I hadn't even considered that I might not have very many eggs left - we've only just started looking at our options. We thought that having the reversal done might mean that if we decide to have another baby later on then we'd be able to go ahead and try but if there's not many eggs being produced then there would be no point and IVF would be the sensible thing to do.

    Default Tubal ligation reversal

    I definitely think booking an app with a specialist(most who do tubal reversal also specialize in IVF) to see why your options are and get some blood work done.. Good luck c
