I am trying to look into getting a tubal reversal done. My GP sent me to a fertility clinic and they told me it costs 10-20K that is why they recommend getting IVF.
I am NOT a fan of IVF. Does anyone have personal experience with this or advice on where to start? The GP didn’t have much advice and I haven’t seen my gyno in 2 years so I just got dropped as a patient and now need to get a referral to a new OBGYN.

I had my tubes tied 16 years ago, it is impossible to reverse it sice I had them cut, tied and cauterized. I know of a few people who tried the reversal and none were successful, I would think IVF would give you a better chance but maybe that depends how the procedure was done.

I’m not Canadian, but I started a similar thread not too long ago.
Here is the link:
It might actually be cheaper for you to fly to the US and have it done. I’ve looked around at several places and the highest priced facility was $7000.
This is the place I plan to use if I do it:

Thank you so much. I honestly do not want the IVF. I have 3 kids, and Fiance has high incidence of twins in his family. I had my tube clamped and my last ultrasound last year showed it was there, itact, all looked good…I am hoping I would be a good candidate and the success rate is about 70% in Ontario. I don’t know….I know this is a long, investigative process which is why I am starting it now.

@fivemonthsnotice: I totally read that as tuba and was totally confused and had to click through…
Now that I’m here I’m curious if your main reason to not want ivf is to avoid twins? You could have just one embryo transfered, and from what I understand proclivity towards twins comes from the female side?

@SapphireSun: I oculd possibly get ine transfered, but I was told that they strongly encourage to do more than one as I am over 35. At the end of the day, it is my body, that way will be more expensive though.
