sterilisation reversal

This is a question for a friend. she was sterilised 2 years ago after coming out of a bad relationship.. to get to the point, she has now met someone and wants to know if she would be able to have it reversed on the nhs.

Her dp doesnt have any children and has recently gone into remission from leukemia. So he is having a sperm test done next week.

has anyone got any idea if it is available on the nhs and if not how much roughly it will cost

Going back years and years now, but my mum had to beg her cons to reverse hers, eventually he agreed and put her on a years waiting list. I think it all depends on your PCT hun :)

Found this, it says that IVF may also be an option, in which case could she see about egg sharing? I know that my mum had been warned that as she had been sterilised for 11 years the chances of success were very slim compared to IVF success (which I genuinely know nothing about, just a suggestion) but luckily she concieved my LB in just over a year and my LS a year after that :)

I'd be really interested to find out how she gets on as I keep wondering whether to look further into it myself.

As far as I can find out, there is very little chance of getting this op on the NHS. I have looked into it extensively, and haven't found one PCT who will pay for it.

Privately the op is likely to cost around £3000. We decided that due to DH's sperm issues we would go for IVF with ICSI. Given that some of his SA's have been quite promising, and that he suffers from a fluctuating problem with numbers and motility, we have decided that if this cycle of treatment doesn't work, I will have the reversal done. We can't really envisage trying IVF after IVF in the hope that it will work. We will try again, but maybe not for a year or so. In the meantime, if I have the reversal there is at least some hope that I will manage to get pregnant in the meantime, and it will not have involved months and months of drugs.

I had a reversal and had to go private but used an NHS hospital. Everything is working had one pregnancy last April but lost at 7wks. What it cost would have only got me one cycle of IVF so I took a chance on the reversal being a better option. I had some groundwork done first though to see if it was viable.

Hi,
I'm due in next week for a sterilisation reversal and it is costing £3500, I tried for a year to get the op on the NHS but was refused twice. It has to be exceptional circumstances for them to even consider it, but there is no harm in asking, your friend may just get lucky.

Hi Newbie here!

I was sterilised in 2001 during a c section, this was offered to me as I had experienced a few problems during my pregnancy (ok I went a bit loopy!) and at the time the thought of going through it again was a definite no-no.

Once I had sorted myself out after the birth, probably about 6 months, I began to regret having it done and these feelings have continued ever since.

I've not been to my GP yet as I don't think he will be very sympathetic but we have decided that we would like another child so we are going to see him this week.

I can't help thinking I am being a bit selfish though, I have 2 wonderful children so why can't I be happy with what I have? But it kind of consumes my every thought :sadface:

Does anyone know if any particulary sterilisations are irreversable, I vaguely remember the consultant telling me it was for keeps :(

Thanks

hi there. going to see a consultant on fri morning about the reversal.
i was clipped in 2005 after having my 3rd 6months previous, really regret as i was only 29yrs old. we have decided at whatever cost to have it reversed, which i'm told in total is £3742.00.
i have 3 gorgeous girls, all really healthy, maria 8yrs, leah 6yrs, and ella 3yrs, just want another!!!!
i have done some research and found quite a good sucess rate of around 60%-95% , if not too much damage, how were your tubes done?? i hear the op is simple and quick so i'm hoping all will go well. shoud'nt get my hopes up too much, but i have read 2 stories the same as me and both got pregnant within the month, my husband is excited about trying again....i wonder why??????
take care, and let me know if you find out anymore, jo xxx :bye: [zx005]

I have been told that the sterilisation op which involves putting clips on the fallopian tubes is the easiest and most successful to reverse. This is what I had done in 2000 so I am hoping that if and when I go to have a reversal, that it is successful. We have a double wammy in that DH has a very variable sperm count, sometimes as low as 0.5 million and sometimes 18 million, but we are willing to let nature try for us and go the natural route if need be. Surely IUI would be an option for us if my op were reversed too, which of course is way cheaper than IVF.

RE: sterilisation reversal

Hi JoJo
I have just received a quote for reversal which is £3,360 plus initial consultation fee's of about £200.
I am considering having this done myself and have been looking all over for information. It does seem that consultants are not keen to do it although I have read a number of success stories! It is all very confusing and I would also appreciate any advice!

Hope this gives you an idea of cost!!
