Having your tubes tied is something that will prevent you from becoming pregnant. If you do become pregnant with your tubes tied, you will probably not be able to keep the pregnancy.

When the tubes are tied, this means that the fallopian tubes are severed. This prevents the eggs from traveling into the uterus where it meets up with sperm.

If the egg does become fertilized outside of the uterus, it will attempt to attach to another part of the body. This could be life threatening for the woman and the pregnancy will need to be ended. For those who are now ready to become pregnant again, there are ways to avoid this, however.

Having-your-tubes-tied-is-something-that-will-prevent-you-from-becoming-pregnantThe first thing that you will need to do is to have your tubes untied. With this process, you will undergo surgery to reattach your fallopian tubes. If they are long enough and remain undamaged, the eggs should then be able to travel through the tubes.

After this, you should be able to become pregnant just as you would before you had your tubes tied. Take care of your health, exercise and take a prenatal vitamin while you are conceiving in order to increase your chances. For women whose tubes are damaged, in-vitro fertilization may be an option to consider.

      Trying to get pregnant again may not be as easy as the first time. The most common glitch? Aging eggs. Women are born with a finite number of eggs, which can suffer chromosomal damage over time. A defective egg is less likely to be fertilized or, if it is, to result in a viable embryo. This explains why a woman’s fertility starts to dip noticeably when she hits 30, taking a plunge after 35. Also, maternal smoking during pregnancy harms unborn children and includes an increased risk of miscarriage, stillbirth and of pre-term birth and low birth weight leading to increased perinatal morbidity. I recommend seeing your gynecologist to help you with your plans of conceiving and available fertility treatments. Best of luck!
