Is it possible to go for another baby after family planning?
Q: I am a 36 yaesr old woman. We had done family planning after two babies but are now planning to go for another baby. Is it possible to go for another baby after family planning?
A:Recanalisation surgery of the tubes is possible. The success of the surgery depends upon the type of operation performed initially for the sterilisation, and other factors that are evaluable at surgery. Generally, success of surgery is 70-90%. However, you must remember that there is an increased risk of ectopic tubal pregnancy after such operations. Also, ovulation should be documented in you, and your husband’s semen analysis should be normal. I wonder what is the reason for you to undergo this surgery now? If you want a baby boy, remember, testing for boy or girl is illegal and punishable by law and is not done these days. Also, there is no way to guarantee you will get a baby of the sex you desire. If you are really keen to have another baby, why don't you consider adopting a child? I know a number of couples who have adopted 1 or 2 children, after they have had their own children. I also note you are grossly underweight, so you need to improve your health before considering any surgery.
