Remarks: Do not give up! Pregnancy after Essure Reversal is possible! I had my Essure reversal in March of 2013. I tried to conceive for six months with no luck. I had an HSG in September and it showed both of my tubes were blocked. So we decided to do IVF. Well on January 6, 2014 I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. My beta was 4500 and the next day my pregnancy was confirmed by ultrasound. My husband and I were shocked and elated all at the same time. All that money we saved can now go to preparing for our baby. Thank you Drs. Berger and Monteith for this special gift.

Remarks: Hello, I filled out a pregnancy report on 9/10. My HCG was checked on 9/10 and 9/12 and was doubling like it was supposed to. Yesterday, 9/13, I began cramping pretty bad. This morning, 9/14, I woke up and started bleeding and cramping. I went to the ER and my HCG counts were down. They did a vaginal ultrasound and didn’t see anything, but said it might have been too early to see anything. But they did confirm that i am most likely losing the baby. I just wanted to give an update. I am heartbroken, but at least we know that it is possible for me to get pregnant.

Ligation Type: Coagulation (burned)
Due Date: 5/15/14
Remarks: In shock! I had my tubal reversal done in April of 2008 in the hopes of having another child. My husband and I already have 3 so one more would be icing on the cake. We did not go the fertility route (clomid ,ect) because we already have children and were just going to wait and see what happens. After the first year with no success I had my HSG and tubes were open and patent. Well after 4 more years and nothing we figured it was not in God’s plan. I enrolled in school this year and found out I was pregnant by a home preg test 9/8/2013. I thought it was the stress of school, pregnancy didn’t even cross my mind honestly as nothing had happened these last 5 years. My hCG levels came back 11,348. I’ve had my first Ultrasound showing I am approx. 6 wks along with yolk sac and in the uterus. Praising God, and Thanking Dr. Berger for this miracle!

Remarks: I had a miscarriage on 8/4/2013.I was 14 weeks preg.This was my 4th preg since TR. I had a healthy baby girl (she was preemie.Born 5 weeks early BUT HEALTHY)on 7/28/2011.I then got preg again in October 2011.That preg was ectopic causing me to have surgery 12/8/2011.I got pregnant again in Feb.2012 and lost that baby due to miscarriage in 3/2012.I got preg again in April of 2013 I miscarried this baby on 8/4/2013.I had pre eclampsia with my first preg after <abbr title=”Tubal Reversal”>TR</abbr>. They could not regulate my BP so I was rushed in for an emerg.C-Sec. When I had the ectopic pregnancy I was hemorrhaging and was rushed in for surgery. This last preg/miscarriage I was hemorrhaging severely and was rushed by ambulance to the hospital. I don’t think we will be trying again. I have 7 beautiful daughters that I need to stay healthy for. I guess we were just not meant to have a boy! :( But we feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to have at least one more beautiful baby! Thanks again Dr. Monteith.
