  • The first thing I would do would be to go to an OB/GYN and talk to him/her about your options. I hear the procedure can be reversed, but you need to get medical advice first.

  • I want to wish you good luck on ttc. Do be careful though, it is common for women that have had their tubes tied and then reversed to have what is called a tubal pregnancy (ectopic pregnancy). This can be deadly. Please do some research or ask your OBGYN about it. I wish you all the best!
