Dear Palesa

Reversal of sterilization is possible. However one has to find out the type of sterilization that was done as well as whether there is enough length of the fallopian tube to work with to allow for the fallopian tubes to be reanastamosed. If there is adequate length of fallopian tube a success rate of reversal of sterilization can be as high as 40%. However if reversal fails in other words that despite attempting a reversal the fallopian tubes remain blocked or if reversibility is not possible, then IVF is always a possibility to achieve a pregnancy.
