X's Q & A

Q&A: Can you get artificially inseminated if you have had a tubal ligation?

When a woman undergoes a tubal ligation procedure, both fallopian tubes are occluded. An insemination procedure involves placement of a concentrated sample of sperm directly into the uterus, followed by movement of the sperm into the fallopian tubes to meet an ovulated egg (an egg that is released from the ovary and picked up by the fallopian tube. Therefore, an insemination procedure is not feasible when the fallopian tubes have been blocked as in a tubal ligation.
