No. While it would be a great blessing to be able to
make this guarantee ~ it simply is not possible for any
doctor to promise that you will get pregnant. There is no
doctor, surgeon, fertility expert etc. who is able to
'guarantee' you a baby, so beware of those who do. No two patients are the same and while surgeons
can restore the fertility 'tools' your body needs to become
they simply cannot guarantee a pregnancy.
Your body has been altered and will never again be the same as it
was created, but Dr. Perez's will repair them to as close as
What we can do is guarantee you that you will have the
'best outcome possible' with your surgery, and that we will do
everything we can to make sure that your reversal is
successful. Still, not
everyone will conceive, and often there is no explanation as to
why. There are many factors that determine the ability
to conceive following a reversal, including but not limited to
following the doctor's instructions.
You will be
required to wait 8 weeks after surgery to try to conceive.
During that time you should use a barrier method of birth control.
Many doctors will tell you that it is okay to try sooner, but we
disagree. Trying to conceive too soon can be dangerous to
the patient, the baby, and could cause you to lose your tubes or
have them scar shut again. Dr. Perez's high rate of births
following reversal surgery is proof that following his
instructions post op will bring you the best chance possible for
conceiving and carrying a child to term.
