I had my Filshie Clip reversal in Feb 2014. My doctor said he was very positive about me getting pregnant.
Both tubes were working over 70%; one of them at 90%.

Before I had the Clips inserted nine years ago I had four children and had no problem with getting pregnant.

Please can you provide any advice as to how long it can take to conceive?

Thank you

It is advised to try for at least 12 months first. It would be worthwhile to test your partners sperm quality and your egg reserve (ultrasound scan, AMH blood test). Re-occlusion of the tubes may occur so after trying for a year you should re-test the patency of your fallopian tubes: HyCoSy or HSG is recommended. We would be happy to see you for a fertility MOT+HyCoSy.
