Tubal Reversal vs. IVF

IVF Success Rates vs. Tubal Ligation Reversal Success

If you are seeking an IVF, you owe it to yourself to find out if Tubal Reversal is a better option.

The tubal reversal procedure offers an option to invitro fertilization (IVF) for 10% of the 800,000 U.S. women who have had a tubal ligation.

In many cases, patients can get Tubal Reversal for a higher chance of getting pregnant again. Reversals also cost thousands less than IVF.

Dr. Rosenfeld offers a free phone consultation after reviewing your medical history and tubal reversal operative notes. At no cost to you, he will tell you your chances of conceiving after a tubal reversal.

Quick Comparison of Tubal Reversal vs IVF

2024 Comparison Table Between IVF and Tubal Reversals

If your husband or partner has a normal sperm count, reversal of your tubal ligation is a superior and less expensive method over IVF. The reversal procedure is half the cost of IVF and is a more natural option with a  much higher success rate.

Plus, a tubal reversal can produce multiple pregnancies, if desired. Thousands of families have brought the joy of new children into their life by working with Dr. Rosenfeld. His tubal ligation reversal procedure can give you the absolute best chance of having another child.

It is very important for Dr. Rosenfeld to read your operative report of your tubal ligation to make sure your tubes can be repaired. To see if you are a good candidate, here are your options so that we assist you in obtaining a copy of the surgical report and arrange your free consultation with Dr. Rosenfeld:

  • Register online to provide your medical history and name and the location of the hospital where your ligation was performed and your name at the time of the surgery.
  • Call to speak with one of our nurses to get started at our Houston phone number, (713) 790-0099.
  • Email us to let us know you are interested in a free consultation to determine if you are a tubal reversal candidate. Include the name and location of the hospital where your ligation was performed and your name at the time of the surgery.

Find out why Tubal Reversal Surgery Is better than IVF

In the vast majority of cases, tubal ligation reversal is a better choice than IVF, here’s why:

  • IVF success rates are much lower than tubal reversal pregnancy rates.
  • Dr. Rosenfeld will be completely honest when he reviews your tubal ligation operative report. He will tell you if a micro-tubal reconstruction or the IVF procedure is better for you.
  • Tubal reversal only requires a maximum of 3 visits. IVF requires daily injections, many blood tests, and ultrasounds, 6 times per cycle. This is why IVF costs over $15,000 per cycle. Even if health insurance cover part of the cost of the blood tests, ultrasounds, and medicines, one cycle of IVF is far more expensive than tubal reversal. Multiple cycles may be required for a single pregnancy.
  • The fee for tubal reversal surgery with Dr. Rosenfeld includes everything. NO HIDDEN OR EXTRA FEES…just ask our patients as many have provided their email address in their tubal reversal testimonial.
  • Tubal reversal surgery is 1/2 the price of what it takes to have IVF done and you can have more than one baby if you desire without having to pay every single time.
  • Tubal reversal surgery is a more natural procedure and does not require hormone injections.

Tubal Reversal vs. IVF Success Rates

The table below are general success rates per medical studies.

Tubal Reversal Vs. IVF
Age <35 35-37 38-40 41-42 >42
IVF 41% 32% 22% 12% 5%
Tubal Reversal 60% 40% 30% 20% 10%

“I receive a large amount of patients being referred to me from IVF doctors because they know that their patients have a greater chance of having successful pregnancies with a microscopic tubal reversal.”
– Dr. Bernard L. Rosenfeld

Patient Testimonials Are Better Than Facts

Christi Marchant – Essure Reversal Testimonial

Dr. Rosenfeld Performs Successful Essure Reversals

christi marchant's tr baby after essure reversalOriginally, we were told our only option to have another child was IVF. Upon research, we discovered that a few doctors were having some favorable results actually reversing the Essure procedure. We researched for doctors that had successfully performed Essure reversals, and ultimately chose Dr. Rosenfeld for this complicated reversal. His impeccable reputation as a surgeon, the phone consultation he provided, as well as the kindness and attention his staff gave us helped us to make this difficult decision.

We could not be happier with our results! We became pregnant just four months after the Essure reversal and had our little rainbow baby in June. This beautiful, happy-go-lucky little girl is such a joy to our family and has brought new hope to us. Her brothers dote on her and her always-ready sunshine smile helps us keep our hearts light.

When our Ob/Gyn finished delivering our TR baby via C-section, she looked at the surgery sites where each of my fallopian tubes meet my uterus (where Essure is placed and causes scar tissue) and said the repair looked beautiful and both fallopian tubes were wide open! A testament to a talented surgeon.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Dr. Rosenfeld and staff. You were an answer to our prayers.

Tubal Reversal China – Houston Texas Testimonial – Mei Lu

Tubal Reversal China – Houston Texas Testimonial – Mei LuDr. Rosenfeld, because of your skilled hands, now our family has two healthy boys, Mason and Forrest.

I was forced to be sterilized in China due to its birth control policy. After me and my husband came to US, we really wanted to have kids. At first, we tried IVF procedure, but it was not successful. We found you from the website and saw the instruction for this micro-tubal reconstruction procedure. We decided to try again.

The tubal ligation reversal surgery was done perfectly, it also repaired the ugly scar I got in China, even though it’s been 10 years after the sterilization was performed on me. Miraculously, I had my successful tubal ligation reversal pregnancy with my first son Mason just 5 months after the tubal reversal procedure. Our second son Forrest is already 2 years old.

I cannot imagine what our life would be if we did not meet you and get the tubal reversal procedure done by you. We cannot say enough well about you, Dr. Rosenfeld and this life changing tubal ligation reversal surgery.

Essure Tubal Reversal Testimonial | Aladdin, Wyoming

Dear Dr. Rosenfeld and Staff,

Christi Marchant – Essure Reversal TestimonialMy husband and I are from Aladdin, WY. In January, our third child, a beautiful baby girl, was born perfect and healthy. We couldn’t have been happier; our family of five felt perfect and complete. A few months down the road, as we were considering birth control options, the doctor informed us about Essure. This non-surgical, non-hormone, cost effective option seemed perfect. We went ahead with it, never imagining that there would ever be any reason to make us reconsider. Why would we when our little family was just right, and we were so happy?

A little over a year later on September 9, our perfect baby girl left us to walk with Jesus. With very little warning or symptoms, her appendix burst and her tiny body succumbed to sepsis very quickly. The doctors and staff worked so hard to help her, but our little angel flew to heaven. I can tell you there is nothing worse than losing a child. It hurts so badly that it truly feels as though your heart is breaking.

After several months, our boys began to question us about having another baby. The thought of a new precious miracle in our lives grew in our hearts quickly, and we began to look at what our options were. When I had gotten the Essure, the doctor had been very specific that it could not be reversed. With our first phone calls, we were told our only option was in vitro fertilization (IVF). As we researched that, it just didn’t seem like a great option for us. However, I stumbled on a website that advertised actual reversal of the Essure, and we were so excited! Within a short period, we had narrowed our doctor down to you, and your staff was able to work with me and schedule us in quite quickly.

In April we were on your doorstep, hoping for a successful surgery and that a 35% chance of conception would be enough. We are so thrilled to write this letter and tell you THANK YOU!

Because of all of your dedication and hard work, we are expecting a baby girl on July 6! My C-section is tentatively scheduled for one week before her due date. We’ve just had our anatomy scan, and she is perfect. A baby is a blessing any time, but this baby had come at a time when we really needed some joy in our lives. Our boys are really planning all the things they will teach her and how they will take care of her.We miss our sweet, sassy little Reese every minute of every day. She left a never-ending ache in our hearts and an empty spot in our lives. However, you all worked together to provide our family with the opportunity for new hope in our lives, and we are ever so grateful for that. We just can’t thank you enough. We’ll send a photo after she’s born! May God bless you all.

Tubal Reversal Testimonial Email From Staten Island, New York

Tubal Reversal Testimonial From patient in Staten Island, New York

Dear Dr. Rosenfeld (and Staff),

I happily write this to inform you of the birth of our son, Jedidiah Cintron, born on Sept. 28.

If not for you and your staff, he would not be here. I thank God for you as you helped us not only have another child, but have our first son. We have three beautiful daughters and felt our family was complete. I had a tubal ligation, where my tubes were cut and the ends burnt in November. A few months later, my husband and I both deeply regretted our decision and desired more children. We were at a loss and thought we would just have to live with this regret.

As the years past, we researched in-vitro fertilization and adoption. But the more we researched, the more we realized that the costs were far too high and had low success rates. I researched tubal reversals online, and the majority of the information was negative. Living in NYC, I thought, for sure, there would be plenty of doctors with high success rates in tubal reversals. I was wrong. I called several fertility specialists in NYC, even if they performed the procedure they did not recommend it. I was repeatedly told that the success rates were very low, and each practice recommended IVF.

So I began researching tubal reversal doctors online. A few names kept popping up with positive reviews, but all were out of state. I had phone consultations with 3 of biggest names in tubal reversal procedures. The doctors were all nice, but Dr. Rosenfeld was the farthest away. Despite this, I chose Dr. Rosenfeld. I chose Dr. Rosenfeld because I felt he was the best. Not only did I feel the most comfortable with him, but he also had the highest success rate, offered the best pain management, used the finest sutures, and did not use staples.

I also choose Dr. Rosenfeld because he said he would use my C-section scar to perform the surgery. I’ve had three C-sections, and one doctor told me because of this he would have to make a vertical incision on my abdomen. I was very relieved when Dr. Rosenfeld said that was unnecessary and that he would not do that to me. Dr. Rosenfeld and his staff were awesome. The nurse who performed my pre-op appointment was very personable and animated. She said I would have a boy! She explained everything so thoroughly and made my husband and I so excited to have this surgery.

I had my tubal reversal on July 2. The surgery went well. I had very little pain afterward. Dr. Rosenfeld and his staff had told me to stay mobile and not spend a lot of time lying down because it would help with my recovery. They were right! The very next day, I went out shopping at an outlet mall. I did lots of walking and standing, but felt very little pain. I did not need to take any oral pain killers past the first day, because of the pain medication that Dr. Rosenfeld injected at the incision site.

I went home [to New York from Houston] a couple of days after the surgery and had no problems taking care of my daughters. Dr. Rosenfeld had told us to wait two menstrual cycles before trying to conceive, but we waited three cycles. Because, we had three young children and led very busy lives, we were not good about timing my cycle or actively trying. Despite this, we managed to conceive in December 2014, just 2 and half months after we started trying.

Our son was born on Sept. 28. We couldn’t be happier. We know God gave us our son, but we thank God for Dr. Rosenfeld who helped make it possible.

Tubal Reversal Jourdanton Texas – Shanna Blalock

We went through IVF and it was unsuccessful. Luckily, I then found Dr. Rosenfeld. What really convinced me to do my tubal reversal was meeting at his office with another patient with her baby who had the surgery. It was so inspiring.

I had my surgery on June 16th, 2011.  Dr. Rosenfeld is great, his nurses are great, the pain pump is awesome. I was back at work in less than a week, and I’m now 5 weeks pregnant at only 3 months after my surgery, the facility and everyone there was fantastic as well.

I highly recommend them and the tubal reversal surgery to everyone!!!
