The invention of birth control is one of the most significant medical innovations for modern women. With the conception of birth control (pun intended), there have been many advances in the various types of birth control available today. Even though many of these birth control options are suitable for many women depending on their family-building goals, a few have been linked to complications when it comes time to start a family or may affect the overall health of your reproductive system.
In most cases, your OBGYN should be able to implant and remove birth control such as an IUD or birth control implant. However, at Kofinas Fertility, we often see patients with complicated cases for removal.
Our doctors specialize in minimally invasive reproductive surgery, so we can take on the toughest cases of birth control removal where your OBGYN cannot safely remove it without affecting the rest of your reproductive system.
Complications with birth control devices can range from minor to life-threatening. At Kofinas Fertility, we can safely remove birth control devices while ensuring that your reproductive system stays healthy or is healthier than before (even if you are not actively trying to get pregnant). Whether you have a lodged IUD that has migrated on its own to a complicated location or you are looking for the best surgeons to remove your Essure device, or want options after getting your "tubes tied," our specialists are here to help.
Other Birth Control Removal/Reversal FAQs:
My tubes are tied, can I still get pregnant?
This is a very common question from our patients that have previously had a tubal ligation surgery. Tubal ligation reversal surgery is often unnecessary due to the option of IVF. One reason that we recommend going through in vitro fertilization (IVF) rather than a tubal reversal surgery is the efficiency of the process itself. If having a baby is your goal with tubal ligation in place, we recommend doing IVF rather than having to reverse the procedure and then doing fertility treatment.
Do you perform tubal ligation reversal?
Yes, we can perform that procedure, but women that have had a tubal ligation often see more success and less cost with IVF rather than a reversal surgery. IVF is less invasive, more cost efficient, and has higher success rates of having a baby. Tubal ligation reversal is considered an elective procedure, therefore not typically covered by insurance.
Can my OBGYN remove my IUD instead of having surgery?
Typically, an OBGYN can perform the removal of an IUD if there are no complications with the location or any migration that has happened in your uterus. Our specialists are here for the more challenging cases that need to be surgically removed. Even if you are not ready to have a baby now, performing the removal with a highly specialized surgeon gives you the best chance of having a healthy reproductive system for when you are ready to start a family.
