Tubal ligation (ligation), like vasectomy, is a widely used surgical contraception process. However, the younger a woman undergoes a bandage, the greater the chance of regret and the desire to be fertile again.
AMONG THE CAUSES THAT DETERMINE THE DESIRE DESIRE OF TO BACK TO FERTILITY:
- New wedding
- Death of child
- Desire for a new child in the same relationship
- Psychological intolerance to sterilization.

When a connected patient wishes to become a mother again, the reversal of tubal ligation (ligation) by microsurgery represents an excellent alternative and with a high success rate in terms of natural pregnancy.
The images shown above were taken from the microscope lens and are enlarged to allow a better view.
The wires that appear in the photo on the right are special, thick called “9 zeros” (thinner than a hair) and can only be seen perfectly through the microscope.
The benefits of reversal of tubal ligation are wide when compared to in vitro procedures (the other alternative for a connected woman to be a mother). First, pregnancy rates in in vitro procedures do not reach 50% per attempt. Then, pregnancy occurs with human interference and not by natural means and finally, there are high risks of multiple pregnancies (twins or triplets) in in vitro procedures.
video is a recording made during a tubal ligation reversal surgery using the microsurgical technique. Note that it is only possible to visualize the surgery wires thanks to the use of the microscope.
