What You Have to Know About Untying Tubes

In countries where population increase is almost detrimental to the economic concerns of the state, the number of children required is limited. This phenomenon is popularly practiced in China. A well-known practice to prevent uncontrolled pregnancy is tubal ligation, or in an informal language, tying tubes. However, in large continents like Europe or America, the number of children is not a concern. This is perhaps due to the availability of large land mass. And so, tubal ligation is not really an option for British and Americans. But—let us take an example in the United States—the controlling of number of children still varies to the preference of the couple. There is still a percent of American couples who choose to undergo tubal ligation, for some reasons like, this process may preserve their income stability and or they are not used to having a large family.

But, in unexpected cases where the couple who underwent tubal ligation changes their minds and planned to have an addition to their family, is it still possible to undo what has been done? Fortunately, yes. And, how do the surgeons untie tubes? This process is called reversal tubal ligation. However, the process is more complicated than tying the tubes. The couple has three options to undergo this: tubal anastomosis, tubal implantation, and salpingostomy or fimbriectomy reversal. The medical terms are really confusing, but wait until the surgeons explain to you how the processes would be accomplished. Although the processes are quite simple, the decision on which procedure to undergo can be lethal and time-consuming. The couple must be well-informed about each procedure and must be comfortable about their choice.

Apparently, another concern that the couple has to consider is, how much does it cost to get your tubes untied?Reverse tubal ligation is an expensive procedure. The cost averages from $10,000 to $30,000. It is wise to look for surgeons under referrals, as they may take consideration for the professional fees.
