Post subject: Tubal reversal at 43
Hi, This is my first time on this page, ive been looking for ages to find a website with genuine and honest accounts of tubal reversals.
I have just turned 43 my partner is 30 and childless, i have had 6 live birth, one a cot death. I got sterilised in 99 due to the fact when i had my fourth born in 94, the hospital [:CENSORED:] up and they broke my waters and then realised my son was transverse lie, so he had no way to come out, i ended up with a emergency section and they ended up giving me a classical section. Mine was done internally so no scar on out side, was adviced never to have any more choldren at that time by the surgeon, but i did go on and have two more sons, no problems carrying them, just close monitoring, but felt three sections later that because of the previous blunder by the hospital, i decided to get sterilised, i was devastated, never thought id ever get to be a mum again, but met my partner and he wants children, i have regular periods and was very fertile before, i had my tubes clamped, i am now looking into a reversal, the costs, where we can get in done in scotland, who to talk too pre op, just any info really, and looking for people who are my age and going to do this, we did compare costs abroad which are half the price, just want the chance to be a mam again with my lovely man, any support would be appreciated.

Hi jaq17, I wanted to say you do what ever you both want. My advice is to get the fertility tests first and then decide. I will not say it has been all plain sailing and it is so upsetting at times. But I wouldn't change the fact I went for it, and I have no been successful yet, but I am still trying lol. Good luck xx

.. Hiya as you are in your 40's ..my advice would be to go for IVF..yes you may only get one shot,but the success rate given your age may better...
if you were in your early to mid 30's then I would say that a reversal may be better... as based on stats from this forum, the ladies that were in their 30's when they had a tubal reversal,were the ones that went on to have babies..

I really dont fancy ivf, i have regular periods, i even feel my egg drop every month, id far rather just get the op, for anyone in scotland, where did you go, what was the cost and most importantly how do you start the ball rolling as we are ready to do this, even given up smoking, and getting in shape, any advice appreciated, this is the only site that is useful,

I am from Scotland but after a lot of research chose to got to a Dr in Nottingham, Mr Pickles.., you can Google him easily. I would still do the same again, he can talk to you on the phone before you decided. It costs £4300 I think. Good luck no matter who you go with xx
