Tubal Ligation Reversal by Dr. Berger
The rationale for early pregnancy monitoring is to prevent a tubal pregnancy from progressing to the point of rupturing the fallopian tube. Rupture of the fallopian tube results in internal bleeding and requires emergency surgery. Pain in one side of the lower abdomen or pelvis, rising HCG levels, and failure to see a gestation sac in the uterus when the HCG levels are above 1500 may indicate a tubal pregnancy.

IVF: involves gonadotropin stimulation of ovaries with retrieval of eggs by vaginal ultrasound guidance and fertilization with partnerís sperm in the embryology lab. Embryos are usually allowed to grow 3 to 5 days in the lab before transferring embryo(s) back to uterus. IVF is generally recommended for couples with severe tubal disease or blockage (or previous tubal ligation), severe male factor (low count, motility or morphology), severe endometriosis (Stage III or IV), high amounts of anti-sperm antibodies, or failure to achieve pregnancy with previous afore-mentioned treatment protocols (Minimal Stimulation, SOIUI protocols, etc.).

Fertility Treatment at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center.
Female sterilization is the second most frequent birth control method in the United States, chosen by over 10 million women. Approximately 650,000 female sterilizations are performed in the US each year. This means that about one in every four American women using contraception have had a sterilization operation. Although most women remain satisfied with their decision to have a tubal ligation, many express regret and desire tubal ligation reversal. Our on-going Sterilization Reversal Study reveals a 65% pregnancy rate after reverse tubal surgery at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center.
