  • You should see an OB and talk about having it reversed. It can be expensive and whether or not it works depends on several things:
    1. The type of tubal ligation that you had (what method was used to tie your tubes)
    2. Your age
    3. Your husbands sperm
    4. Your overall health and prior surgeries
    5. The experience of your surgeon(s)
    If the reversal fails you can try IVF, which depending on the state you live might be covered by insurance. Or you could try just going with IVF.

    I have 4 children from my first marriage and remarried. We're trying for #5. It's funny that we women get comments about how we shouldn't have anymore, but no one bats an eye when men leave and have more. Gotta love double standards.

  • I"m more shocked your only 33 & have 8. wow were you busy or what? I mean really have as many as you want but, wow.
    They only thing you can do now is either adopt some kids or try to have the tubal reversed..which is expensive & may not work. good luck to ya.

  • Good for you. I'm one of 9 kids and if you want more, go for it. I loved being a part of a big family.
