This client underwent a tubal ligation eight years ago after giving birth to two children in her 30’s. Over time the client wanted another child to complete their family and wondered if reversing the tubal ligation and trying to conceive naturally were the best options. On her mind was also the fact that the procedure is expensive and pregnancy was not guaranteed.
After reading reviews of other successful cases at Beyond IVF after tubal ligation, the client consulted with Dr. Ton to discuss treatment options. Dr. Ton recommended that the client undergo ICSI rather than reverse the tubal ligation because it is difficult for the fallopian tubes to work normally again, and since it had been so long since the procedure was originally done, there was the risk of adhesions having formed.
Both partners were also older. Dr. Ton also did not recommend trying naturally due to the risk of chromosomal abnormalities in the baby, which can only be prevented by ICSI and NGS testing.
After speaking with Dr. Ton, the client decided to begin the ICSI procedure when her cycle started. Both ovaries could be stimulated well to produce eggs and Dr. Ton was able to collect 18 eggs that developed into 10 blastocysts (day 5).
After NGS testing, quite a few embryos were considered healthy enough for transfer. Dr. Ton chose only the healthiest embryo to transfer and used embryo glue during the transfer to reduce the risk of miscarriage and improve implantation. The client was able to become pregnant successfully in her 40’s.
Additional Techniques: Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and next-generation sequencing (NGS)
Client’s Review: We are grateful to Dr. Ton for helping us add to our family, even after tubal ligation. We are very happy. All the staff at Beyond IVF are very kind and gave excellent advice. They even had a gift for us when we were successfully pregnant.
