I had my tubes tied 9 years ago and now I want to have a baby. My insurance does not cover the reversal, so do you think in vitro is an option for me and can I use my own eggs?

  • yes you can use your own eggs and also intro would be a option. you dont need your tubes untied to carry a baby just a healthy uterus so i wouldnt think it would be a issue just talk to your dr.

  • I am pretty sure they'd need to do a reversal to harvest your eggs?

  • In Vitro can work, and I think the odds of sucess are better than tubal reversal. However, it may cost just as much if not more. You can probably use your own eggs, but your doctor will have to evaluate that before you get started.

  • Is the reversal surgery less money than invitro? Will your insurance cover invitro?

  • I was going to say, my doctor's office a reversal is $6,000 and my in vitro was twice that (and failed, to let you know) At least you can try as much as you want after a reversal...when you're looking at over 10k a pop for in vitro with no guarantees, it can get scary.
