As far as I understand it, there are very few areas where this is available on the NHS, because the overall success rate for the operation (as in, the pregnancy rate after reversal) is phenomenally low and the cost of the operation is unfeasably high for the expected return.

It's one thing saying that it's possible, another completely performing it successfully enough to convince NICE that it's effective enough for the NHS to pay for it.

thanks for your reply, i am really looking for people who have had this procedure done on the NHS i think my sister knows the rate of how good the operation will work but if i can just find one or two people who have had it done on the NHS then it gives her something to fight with.

thanks anyway

Some one I know had a reversal done over twenty years ago, after tragically losing one of her children, she was pregnant three months after the operation, and had no problems. I also know a person who had the reversal about two years ago, and it has not worked for her so far. the one done twenty+ years ago was done in Sheffield on the NHS

I'm afraid that the reversal is not possible on the NHS (I used to work in the Jessop). When a lady wishes to be sterilised she should be told implicitly that it is not available, very sorry.

doesn't a person's reason for requesting a reversal come into it these day's, I can understand every one not being suitable.

Hi,
I have friend who is waiting for a referal from her doctor for a reversal as well.
Surely the NHS can't say no to everyone who wants this operation, I have spoken to quite a few women throughout the uk who have had reversals done through the nhs, so it is far from impossible, just quite rare!
Many women have good reasons for wanting this operation, many have lost children, some were in abusive relationships and a couple of women I have spoken to had diagnosed mental illnesses such as depression and post traumatic stress disorders!! In my opinion such circumstances should be taken into consideration. I know of women in Barnsley, Rotherham, Leeds, Birmingham and as far up as Scotland that have all had this done through the Nhs, so please tell your sister not to give up, the chances may be slim but there IS a chance!!
good luck

if she was able to pay for it private she would but it would cost around 3,000 so it is not possible that way. Hopefully someone out there must be able to help with some information

cheers

Tut, Tut, Tut,
Spud you sound a little single minded there
You wouldn't be assuming that everyone who is unable to raise that sort of money are benefit scroungers would you???? Maybe have a child and let the state pay for it???
My friend is also waiting on a referral for this operation on the nhs, she has a husband that works very hard and they do not claim a penny in benefits, and still are unable to get that kind of money together!!!!!!
Many women have gone on to have children after a reversal paid for by the NHS, why don't you go to the "mothers 35+" website and ask them who pays for their children!!!!!!

I hate the words benefit scroungers.

If your friend cannot find three grand then I still don't understand how they can afford to have a child and then support it for 18+ years and I don't see why the tax payers should pay for the reversal. If there so intent on having children why not try fostering

Perhaps you'd like to tell us here on the Forum how you would raise three thousand pounds so quickly/effortlessly then?

And fostering is hardly the same as having your own children. Your insensitivity takes my breath away.
