Dear Nicola

The option of a reversal depends to a large extent on what type of a sterilisation was performed at the time of the Caesarian Section.
If a cut and tie procedure was done, it is often difficult to perform an adequte reversal and therefore a better option would be to do in-vitro fertilisation which will probably give you a much higher success rate.
