hi
thanks for using healthcare magic.

Tubal reversal success rates vary widely depending upon many factors like women's ages, methods of tubal ligation,experience of the surgeon and techniques for repairing the tubes, length of follow-up after reversal surgery among other factors. Before age of 35, success rate are 50% and its decrease with age. Now u can see chances of getting pregnant in ur case. i will suggest u for IVF for getting pregnant. Rest u can consult ur gynecologist.

Thanks
