Post subject: I have had a tied sterilization can i have it reversed
I have had a tied sterilisation for over 10 years and have since remarried, My husband unfortunately had to have his testicles removed but has banked sperm available. I have been told that the NHS no longer does reversals and we are deperate to have a child together, I have been looking into this for sometime now and I am just hitting a brick wall, It is very distressing and I was wondering if any one can help out with any information that will help us in getting the right help that is needed, I have been told that I am still producing many eggs so that is 1 good thing just how do we get the reversal help if we cannot afford private.If it was the fact that i was sterilised then maybe the NHS may not help however as my husband has now lost his testicles surely there is help available you think ?????? If any one has the answer or can help please please let me know many thanks.

there is a really long thread on the TTC page about this, with ladies that are all going through the same sort of thing. I'm sure if you have a sympathetic GP you may be able to get it done on the NHS, but it is a postcode lottery! If not, it will cost anything between £2000 -£4000 depending who does it and where.
Read the posts - they are really helpful and supportive ladies on there. You can PM me if you need to ask anything.
