Im an embryologist and work at an IVF clinic. You have the option of going through IVF or getting a tubal reversal. My personal advice would be not to get the tubal reversal. If you do get a tubal reversal there is the chance of it not working and the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy if it does work. Also I would hate for you to spend money doing the reversal and have it not work, and then have to spend more money to go to an IVF center.( we see a lot of patients like this) I think your best bet would be to go to an IVf clinic and consult with a doctor. Dont worry there are a lot of women in the same position as you, and you and your fiance have great chances having a baby together. I hope I was of some help, and good luck!

It really depends, and would be hard to quote online. It depends on the center you go to,  your case, and your insurance. Most of the time insurance does not cover that much. In some cases they help a little, but again I would have no way of knowing online. Some insurance (for example: long shoreman) covers almost everything. That is really rare though. Also lots of places like our center offer option plans In case you need more cycles.  A cycle can cost between 10,000 to over 15,000. There are a lot of things that go into this. The medication, If you need a hysteroscopy or labroscopy, whether you use ICSI or not. If you decide to go into an IVF center a financial coordinator should explain everything in detail to you. Definitly shop around and look at a centers statistics its very important!  Im sure most of this stuff you have no idea what im talking about! But I hope its a start.

@crebre80, I was shocked they did it for her at that age too.  My doctor refused to do it for me after my son and I was 27 and she based her decision on my “young” age.  I probably could have pushed it or found another OBGYN that would do it; but back then I trusted everything I doctor told me.  Seems like a whole lifetime ago, but it was only 5 years ago.  Wow… so much about me and my life has changed.  Weird.  It just hit me writing this post that I’ve matured so very much in the past 5 years.  I guess there is one positive from a divorce.  You do gain something.  Maturity.

Also, is adoption a consideration for you?  Since you already have two children, you could be able to adopt an “older” child who is really in need. (It’s impossible to get a “baby” nowadays as everyone wants one.)  Also it may be less expensive than procedures for conception in your situation.   Just a thought, as my mom used to work in foster care and adoption.

I don’t have any advice on the medical end, but good luck :o)
