Dear REVERSAL OF STERILIZATION

It appears that your question is posted for responses from the public. However from a medical point of view, reversal of sterilization is a well-known procedure and can be done under certain circumstances. The success rate however would depend entirely on the type of sterilization that was done as well as the length of the fallopian tube that is left after the reversal and also the female’s age. One can achieve a success rate of around 25% if under appropriate conditions.
