You have a couple of options if you have been sterilised.  You could have IVF or you could opt to have your sterilisation reversed.  How the sterilisation was performed will affect the chance of a successful reversal.  You would need to approach your GP for information and cost.  However, if you wish to have IVF then the cost can be explained to you by our Patient Advisors.
