Is pregnancy after tubal ligation possible? I get asked this question many times from women who have had their fallopian tubes surgically tied, and are now looking to get pregnant with herbal remedies.
Here is my answer: If you have had a tubal ligation in the past and you’ve changed your mind about having children, you must have a tubal ligation reversal first. This is a complicated surgical procedure which involves a surgeon cutting away parts of the fallopian tubes that have been surgically fused together, to create a open fallopian tube.
In short, natural remedies cannot open up your fallopian tubes if you have had them surgically closed. However, they can help you increase your chances of conceiving once yours have been surgically reopened.
For example, many women who have had a tubal ligation reversal have suffered inflammation in the fallopian tubes, and excessive inflammation can lead to the formation of scar tissue and adhesions. Both adhesions and scar tissue can block the fallopian tubes, and prevent conception from taking place.
Another complication with any surgery is infection. A common cause of blocked fallopian tubes is Pelvic Inflammatory disease, which itself is caused by infection. Women who contract infections after their fallopian tube surgeries are at risk of suffering damage to the fallopian tubes.
These conditions – inflammation, infection, scarring and the formation of adhesions are all avoidable with natural herbs. Some herbs contain compounds that can speed up the healing of wounds and reduce inflammation. Many herbs have antibacterial and antiviral properties, which help to protect against infection.
You can take these herbs in two ways: orally or vaginally. Taking the herbs orally involves swallowing a capsule containing the herbs, so they reach your fallopian tubes via the digestive system and blood stream. The active ingredients are sent directly to the cells of the fallopian tubes, to speed up healing naturally.
Taking the herbs vaginally involves adding hot water, which helps the herbs to release the healthy compounds, then straining the mixture of herbs and water, and soaking a tampon in the mix. This creates a herbal tampon, which can then be inserted, and the mixture will reach the fallopian tubes via the cervix and uterus.
It is best to wait until the time your surgeon tells you your wounds will heal before using herbal tampons. In some cases, they are not needed, as the tubal ligation reversal is a success. However, if you’re still trying to conceive months after having the surgery, it’s time to try the natural approach.
