Brief Answer: Yes... but it depends on many other factors... Detailed Answer: Hi, It is not absolutely impossible to conceive after tubes ligation and cauterization. It can be achieved by recanalization procedure. However before you attempt, I would order serum FSH level check on the 3rd day of your menstrual cycle. This test gives as an idea of ovarian reserve. At 48 years of age, as the ovarian reserve decline, it diminishes chances of pregnancy too. Therefore it is better to know your ovarian reserve before planning recanalization. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
