Reversal of Sterilisation

Sterilisation is a surgical procedure designed to permanently prevent pregnancy.

A percentage of women do decide later on that would like the sterilisation procedure to be reversed thus allowing them a chance of becoming pregnant again. 

Women who have had their fallopian tubes fixed with clips during the sterilisation procedure have no problem having the procedure reversed whereas women who have had their tubes removed cannot have the reversal. 

There are a number of reasons for reversal and our team at the hospital will take time to discuss those reasons with you. 

The procedure will be performed under a general anaesthetic and will take between one and two hours. This operation requires extremely precise surgery. 

The surgery will involve a small incision being made across the lower abdomen. If clips have been used previously then these will be removed and the fallopian tubes joined together. 

The stitches will then be removed after around 5 days.

YOU will need to stay at hospital for a period of one to two nights and then, when home, take great care they rest and relax for a further two weeks post operation.

Regular exercise should be maintained with over the counter painkillers being used should they be necessary. On occasions infection occurs in the wound and antibiotics will be required. 

This procedure will normally be covered by the medical insurance policy but patients are advised to check with the provider prior to any treatment.

If you are paying for your own treatment all costs will be discussed and explained prior to any treatment taking place. This will be confirmed in writing along with any surgeon fees, anaesthetist fees and hospital charges prior to admission.
