I am 27 years old had a tubal ligation at the age of 22. The doctor discouraged me because I was soo young however I already had two c-sections.(due to not having a big enough pelvis). At the time its what I thought I wanted to do. However I was young and dumb not with the same father and now I am with someone else who has no kids of his own. We have been togather for almost five years and married for one. We now want to have our own baby. Can you tell me what my first steps are because I am so confused of everything I am reading online. Everything with in my medical history has been done at pinnacle health. I'm not sure how they performed the  tubal reversal. I have read that it can be done

Hello,
Unfortunately there is not a straightforward or short answer.  It would be best if you could schedule an appointment for a consult with us - RMA Fertility Specialists.  You can request an appointment online: http://www.rmaspecialists.com/online-appointment-request-form
Also you can learn more about me and our doctors here: http://www.rmaspecialists.com/the-rma-philadelphia-experience/our-fertility-doctors

It depends on whether these miscarriages were all with the same partner.  In general, population statistics tell us that you will have a >50% chance of live birth with your next pregnancy.  You can always seek a formal evaluation at any time with a fertility specialist to make sure everything is ok before continuing to try getting pregnant.

I am 26 years old and have PCOS. I have had 2 miscarriages several years ago. My husband is 35 and has low sperm count with low mobility. What would be the best for us to do? IUI or invitro? Thanks

Depending on how low the sperm count and motility is, IUI may still be an option.  IVF would be the best option for success rates per cycle especially with low sperm count and motility. I would suggest you set up an appointment with our practice (RMA of Central PA) for a consultatio by calling (717) 516-1620 .
