Getting pregnant after the tubal ligation has made it easier for women under 35 through shared egg donation.
Getting pregnant after the tubal ligation has made it easier for women under 35 through shared egg donation. With this facility allowed by the Federal Council of Medicine under CFM2121 / 2015, women who want to be egg donors and need human reproduction treatment to get pregnant may have part of their treatment paid by the egg recipient.
However, it is not all women under the age of 35 who can be donors, because to donate is necessary to have a perfect ovarian health and also to have no health problems or hereditary diseases. The program requirements through the IVI Salvador clinic are:
- Be under 35 years old
- Do not have endometriosis – Do not have a medical history of your own and family
- Do not have any genetic or sexually transmitted diseases
- The reason you need treatment for human reproduction is not related to your ovarian health, with their eggs.
- Not being infected by Zika Virus
Dr. Agnaldo Viana, coordinator of the IVIDOA program, a shared donation and gynecologist specialized in assisted reproduction of the IVI Salvador, explains that in addition to a physical evaluation, psychological aspects of the donor are also evaluated, which if married, will also need the consent of its partner to donate eggs.
Could reversal of the tubal ligation be an option to get pregnant naturally?
Ligation is a tubal closure surgery performed to prevent the passage of the egg through the fallopian tubes and their encounter with the sperm. This procedure is adopted when the woman has no intention of becoming pregnant again, since her reversion has a low prognosis for the reestablishment of fertility, in addition to the risks associated with a new surgery.
To perform the reversal of the ligature, it is necessary to undergo a surgical procedure and that the fallopian tubes heal correctly, allowing the encounter between the ovum and the spermatozoid. Poor healing after surgery can prevent pregnancy or even lead to a tubal pregnancy, which is a major risk to a woman’s health. Therefore, in vitro fertilization has been the main treatment option for women who wish to become pregnant after the tubal ligation.
“As in In Vitro Fertilization the fertilization of the ovum happens in the laboratory, its success does not depend on the tubal conditions, it is safer for the mother and the baby, besides being statistically more effective” explains Dr. Agnaldo.
