7 years ago i had a epitopic pregnancy and had one tube tied, is there a higher chance of me having it again if I get my tube untied?

From the research I could find on reverse tubal ligation, the answer is: it depends. I am not sure why you would want to undergo reversal, when you still have one tube that is not tied.

Reverse tubal ligation has a success rate of 20%-70%, and factors that effect this range include the type of procedure you had, if the tube was damaged, etc.

Are you able to speak with your doctor about this, who can talk with you about your options (and knows the condition of your fallopian tubes)?

well i had a epitopic pregenacy 7 years ago to where they took one of my tubes and i ask if the Dr. could tie the other one, now that i found some one who i want to bare children with i want to get my one tube i have untied, and i found a place in Chaplan Hill, NC. it'll cost me $5400.00 to get it done, but in 2007 i did get pregnant by my ex husband but did miscarry. so i still think i can get pregnant, but was unsuccessfull since then. i dont know if my tube is damage, i dont even know if it was clipped or tied. i have no clue. and i cant rememeber the Dr's name to save my life.

I will need to look into the process of "untying" your fallopian tube, and what happens afterwards.

In the meantime, can you tell us why you are wanting your tube untied? You are still able to become pregnant with one fallopian tube, unless there has been an indication that this was not possible for you?

Have you spoken to your doctor about getting your tube untied, or I am just wondering where you would get this idea from, since you had it tied seven years ago.

I'll get back to you with some information about untying your tube after 7 years!
