A tubal ligation can be performed at most any age, but without parental consent, it could not be done until one attains the age of 18. How many kids one had before the tubal ligation has no consequence, nor matters.

Is it normal to be very bloated and look 4 months pregnant after a c section and tubal ligation?

I am 31 years old and a mother of four. I had a c-section and a tubal ligation after I had my 4th daughter. I feel very bloated on my stomach and look six months pregnant. I feel this has got to do with the tubal ligation that I've had. Anyone who can help me out or who has the same symptoms?

Can you use invitro fertilization after a tubaligation?

Yes, you can have IVF to get pregnant after tubal ligation. However, anyone contemplating tubal ligation must consider the process to be permanent. If you are not ready to commit to a life without additional pregnancies, consider long-acting reversible forms of contraception, such as intrauterine devices (IUDs) or the contraceptive implant (such as Nexplanon). These are more effective than tubal ligation, and are completely reversible.

How successful is tubal ligation reversal if you've had a tubal ligation 12 years ago?

Tubal ligation is a permanent fix. It cuts, ties and burns the tubes whereas making it almost impossible for the egg to pass through for fertilization. There is only a 0.5 percent chance I believe that you could then get pregnant. This is not birth control, its a permanent solution to no longer have more children.

Can i reverse tublication to get pregaant again?

Pregnant After Tubes Burned?Unlikely. A recent study (the Collaborative Review of Sterilization, or CREST, study) looked at 10,000 women who had undergone tubal ligation and found 143 failures (a failure rate of 1.4 percent). It can be higher when a tubal is done at the time of a C-section. The failure rate also tends to increase the longer it has been since one had a tubal ligation. The U.S. Collaborative Review of Sterilization (CREST) found the failure rate for tubal ligation (all occlusion methods) to be 1.85% after 10 years.Here are other answers and opinions from Wiki s contributors:Yes, anything is possible. I personally knew someone who concieved a healthy child after she was tied and burned.Yes, it is possible to get pregnant after having your tubes burned. I had my tubes tied in 2000. I had a modified Pomeroy procedure done (with cauterization). I now have a healthy, happy 5-month-old baby boy five years after having my tubal ligation! If you think you might be pregnant after a tubal ligation, see your doctor immediately. Women who conceive after having a tubal ligation have a greater chance of an ecoptic pregnancy, which can be a life treatening condition.Yes, you can get pregnant. My mother had her tubes tied and burned when I was born in 1983, I now have a happy, bubbly 5-year-old brother!It is not common, but still is very possible. Even after a vasectomy some women (that do not cheat) will still become pregnant. This is how doctors get sued.

Possibly early signs of menopause. Talk to your doctor if you have concerns. All we can do here is guess with you.

How old do you have to be to get a tubal?

It depends on where you live

Can a tubal ligation be the cause of ovarian cysts for a 24-year-old and could it complicate this condition?

A woman with PCOS would generally not be having a tubal ligation. Contrary to a previous answer, Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (Stein-Leventhal Syndrome), is a rare condition that generally causes women to not have periods and they are usually sterile and may have masculine features. Tubal ligation has no relationship to ovarian cysts. All women form ovarian cysts, that is part of the ovulation process. If the cysts are smaller than 5 cm. in diameter and resolve within one cycle in women under age 30, 99% of the cysts are benign. Some women, if ther are no contraindications, even those who have had tubal ligations will go on birth control pills to prevent ovarian cysts, since oral contraceptives stop women from ovulating and consequently will prevent most ovarian cysts. The last answerer has it all wrong. They are talking about a whole different ailment. Ovarian cysts are very common in women and are usually harmless and resolve on their own. Having a tubal ligation does not prevent nor cause ovarian cysts in any way. So PCOS and ovarian cysts are two totally different problems.

In the state of Tennessee can you get your tubes tied at the age of eighteen and you have not had a child?

Yes you can but this must be carefully thought out before proceeding as it's irreversible. I would seek the guidance of my gynecologist and even a counsellor before making such a decision if I was of child-bearing age.
