Many infertility treatment have come up like test tube baby and IVF. However, how do you decide whether to opt for in vitro fertilization or Tubal reversal

Women who have previously had a tubal ligation or got their tubes tied often consider either in vitro fertilization or a tubal reversal to get pregnant or to conceive. IVF involves inserting a fertilized egg directly into the uterus. As such, the process completely bypasses the fallopian tubes. 

A tubal reversal, on the other hand, reopens the fallopian tubes so that you can try getting pregnant naturally or try to conceive naturally without going for infertility treatment. Some doctors believe the best candidates for tubal reversal are people under 40 who had a tubal ligation immediately after childbirth so that they need not opt for infertility treatment.

A number of factors will influence the success of each option, including age and health profile. Discussing the pros and cons of a tubal reversal and IVF with a doctor should always be the first step before going for the infertility treatment.

In a Tubal Reversal, a small incision is made near the pubic hairline. A laparoscope, or thin, lighted tube, connected to microscopic instruments is inserted and used to remove the clips or rings used to block the fallopian tubes and to reconnect the tubes to the uterus. Here is some difference between Tubal Reversal and IVF:

1. Tubal Reversal:

a- It is more cost effective than in vitro fertilization or test tube baby.

b- It only requires one procedure: a one-time opening of the fallopian tubes. In vitro fertilization often involves multiple cycles and medication to achieve a pregnancy via test tube baby.

c- Further pregnancies are now possible. With a tubal reversal, the patient may now have future pregnancies without further intervention.

d- If the patient has no other infertility concerns, pregnancy can be achieved through sexual intercourse. Beats multiple visits to the doctor, medications, and procedures!

2. In Vitro Fertilization:

a- It leaves less to chance and may have a better success rate depending on your health and age.

b- Health conditions make it necessary: the fallopian tubes cannot be opened, egg quality is poor, or ovulation cannot be induced with medications then you can opt for the test tube baby.

c- Doctors will monitor your progress and enhance your chances of getting pregnant on a schedule.
