We reported a case of successful pregnancy after laparoscopic tubal anastomosis for reversal of sterilization. The operating procedure consisted of 3 main steps. Firstly, adhesiolysis surrounding the fallopian tube was performed. Secondly, normal mucosa of the tube was identified due to discharge of Methylene Blue, and the occluded portion was removed with scissors. Finally, end to end anastomosis of the mucosa was performed by 4 stitch suturing with 5-0 vicryl, placed at the 6, 9, 12 and 3 O'clock sites. The patient became pregnant 6 months after the laparoscopic operation, but was diagnosed with a left tubal pregnancy.
