Hi Tokima, welcome to the forums.

Being positive shouldn't be a problem where tubal ligation reversal is concerned. You'd have the same chance as any other woman in having the reversal work. They don't always - it would depend on many things such as how long ago it was done (because of scar-tissue over the years), the skill of the surgeon who did the initial procedure as well as the skill of the surgeon who does the reversal. Your hiv shouldn't come into it.

Good luck!


PS - I removed the code from your post that made the text scroll across the page. It was making it impossible to read your post. The scroll code only really works when you use it on short sentences.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
