My name is Julie Yarnell.
I married my husband of 16 yrs. when I was 18 yrs. old. We had our first born daughter 10 mos. later, 13 mos later a gave birth to our son,and we had our third child a baby girl 2 yrs 3 mos later. My grandmother and my husband's sister more less pushed me into getting my tubes tied by telling me three kids were enough. So the day after i gave birth to our third child, I had by tubes tied and burnt at age 22.
Like alot of people who have their tubes tied , I regreted it right away. Two years went by with my heart eagering to be able to conceive another baby. One day I was visiting one of my husband's family members who lives in Louisville, Ky when I decided to look in the phone book for doctors who done tubal reversals. I came across Dr. Levin's ad and called his office for information on a reversal. I got the information packet in the mail and more or less didn't see any way we could afford to have the procedure done. Five more years went by ,I'd go to bed several times a week crying my self to sleep for I thought my dream of being able to have another baby would never come true.I decide to put in God's hands and prayed every night if he seen a way for me to have my surgery to send it our way. My husband that year was in a head on collison ,God was with him for he came only out with a broken ankle, our vechile was totaled. We received a settlement and my husband and I decided to use the money for my reversal.
I contacted Dr Levin and within couple weeks my check was in the mail and I was scheduled for my surgery. I had my tr done on Aug 22,2002. I conceived by Oct of that year but unfortunely that pregancy end in Nov 2002 with a miscarriage. My husband and I started trying to conceive right away and in January we got the good news we were expecting again. Dr.Levin called in bloodwork to see if my levels were all going up,and the test showed i needed progestrone,so Dr. Levin called me in a precription for progestrone.
I had to use it for 12 weeks and On Sept 9,2003 I gave birth to our first TR BABY a beautiful baby girl,weighing 8lbs. We named her Destiny Makayla. Again my husband and I tried for another baby, in Jan . 2005. I conceived right away ,again I had to use the progestrone. And on Oct.11,2005 I gave birth to our 2nd TR BABY another beautiful baby girl weighing 7lbs. We named her Sheena Elizabeth.
I would recommend Dr.Levin and he's staff to anyone wanting a tubical reversal with high sucess rates. My husband and I are going to try for our third TR baby in the month of March of this year. Pictures 2-3 are TR baby #1 and 4-5 are TR baby #2.
(PS: She conceived the first month 3/07 and is doing well so far!)

Addendum of 11/14/2007: This picture was taken shortly after she was born. If you would add her to the testimonal I have posted already. I had my tubes clamped the day after she was born on Nov 9th. I have been blessed with 6 children, 3 before by reversal and 3 after , I could not ask for more then that. (The last picture is Shayla Lynn Yarnell)
