Dear Longing

Indeed it is possible to do the reversal of sterilization. However I would advise against this due to the fact that you would then be engaging in unprotected intercourse, which despite the undetectable viral load is still not an absolute safe situation. It is known that viral loads fluctuate from time to time and under different circumstances and therefore is unpredictable. The safest option in your situation would be to opt for in-vitro fertilization as this obviates the need for a big operation and the risk associated with such an operation and furthermore would be a far more successful and safer road to pregnancy.
