TTC after tubal reversal?

Postby MegAsc » Sat Jul 13, 2013 12:27 pm

Anyone TTC after a tubal reversal? Any luck? Any Advice? We are so nervous about trying for one more since our reversal. I am a fertile lady and our 1st 3 did not take much "planning" or "trying". I am so nervous about how it will be now after a tubal ligation and a tubal reversal. Any guidance is welcome :D

hi meg, I had a tubal reversal 3 or 4 years ago, weve been trying ever since.
I too conceived my two children first time, but not been so lucky since the reversal.
How long ago did you have yours done? my original sterilization was done at same time a caesarean section, when the tubes were swollen from pregnancy and there was a lot of damage done to my tubes, whats left is not very long, so it'll be hit and miss whether we ever catch the eggie.

Am starting clomid again shortly fertililty doc wants to force my ovaries to release two eggs each month so that I always release one on the side where the tube is slightly longer.

Good luck with your journey, hope you get that much wanted bfp. xx

Hi ladies- I had my tr done feb 2013. I got a bfp in April but miscarried and just got another bfp on Friday.

Did you surgeon tell you how much length you had left? I have 5cm and my surgeon said that's ok but she likes to see 6cm.

The other big issue is the increased risk of ectopic once you get pregnant. But if you've done the surgery you know you are wanting to try. I use opks and also temp to make sure I catch the egg each month

I had my tubal ligation done the morning after my 3rd was born june of 2011. I just had my reversal done on April 12th 2013. The doctor did not tell us how long of tubes I had left but he did say that everything looked great. I know that my right side has less than the left side because that tube was double clamped. I am scared that if we do get preg it will end up a tubal just bc the risk is so much higher after a reversal. We are on 2dpo right now and I have been nothing but crampy for 2 days. Not reading into anything but I am SO nervous :roll:

Congratulations on your bfp laura, that's great news.

I didn't have clamps bcase of the caesarean section they had to cut them fold them over and sew them closed, so I lost lots of tube. 3 cm one side and 2 cm the other, It doesn't look great but I guess I probably wont give up hope until the menopause anyway so I might as well keep trying :). xx

Good luck ladies! We always knew Ivf was a possibility if the tr didn't work. I also had my tubes cut not clamped but I don't think I had them doubled over
