Case Facts: Tonya had her tubal sterilization March 25, 1997. The doctor performed a Pomeroy sterilization, removing only a one centimeter section from each side. On January 5, 2004, at the age of 28, Tonya had Dr. Levin perform a microsurgical tubal anastomosis. There were rather large varicosities under both tubes making the repair rather tedious. Tonya's tube lengths at the end of the procedure were 6.5 cm on the right and 5.5 cm. on the left.|

Four for the Money
Our reversal story is not unlike many others that come to Dr. Levin for help. I had a tubal ligation at 21 years old after three kids and a divorce. Little did I know how much God would change my life.
In May of 2001, God sent Joshua to me and we were married. Josh had no children of his own and we knew we wanted to have a child together. I searched the net and found a few options. After much thought, prayer and research, we felt Dr. Levin was our best option. We immediately contacted him about our options and started on the payment plan. After a year of paying, we couldn't wait and borrowed the rest from dad and off we went to Kentucky!
After coming home, we began trying to conceive right away. We were pregnant after only four months. But those four months seemed like a year! Noah, our first reversal baby, was born February 1, 2005! I cried tears of joy after he was born. We were never so happy.
Only a year later we were blessed again. Although we were actively trying to conceive, we weren't avoiding it too well either. In April of 2006, we found out we were pregnant with triplets! Wow! No drugs, treatments. All God. All natural. On Thursday, October 12th, 2006, Amelia Reese, Benjamin Caleb and Molly Kate were born at 35 weeks. They were all healthy and came home with us the following Monday.
We feel so blessed. Thanks to God and Thanks Dr. Levin!
