Keeping Track Of Your Cycles After Tubal Reversal

By Sandra Wilson

Some women may have questions about their cycles after tubal reversal surgery not be sure what will happen and how fast they can get pregnant. They have been told by their tubal ligation reversal surgeon that they may have to stick around one or two days after surgery to be sure there are no immediate post op complications and that the incision looks good. They are also told that they must restrict their activity to only light exercise for several weeks while allowing their bodies to heal internally. But knowing just what to expect from their cycles after tubal reversal and how soon they can get pregnant is something that many forget to find out about.

Now this healing process takes about four to six weeks before all the work done on their tubes is completely healed. And they might think they can rush to get pregnant right away. However, it is best for a woman that has had tubal ligation reversal surgery done to go through a couple complete cycles before really attempting to get pregnant even if it seems like everything is happening as it should.

Although it is usually best to wait for a couple complete cycles after tubal reversal surgery, some women discover they quickly become pregnant, maybe even as soon as there first cycle. Then there are the others who discover that even after six months or more, they still haven’t become pregnant.

Taking six months or longer to get pregnant after a tubal ligation reversal is a good reason to check in with your doctor. There could just be some other reasons why this is happening and you should have it checked out. One reason, though, could simply be how long it has been since you first had your tubal. A woman who had the operation more than ten years before her tubal reversal, is more likely to have problems getting pregnant than one who has had fewer years between the two operations.

What a doctor will do, if after 6 months and the woman is still having difficulty actually getting pregnant, is inspect her fallopian tubes again to see if they are fully open and nothing untoward has happened since the procedure took place. If they discover that these are okay, then there may be some other underlying cause which is preventing the woman from getting pregnant. Women who are worried or become anxious because they are not getting pregnant as soon as they would like will often find it much more difficult to conceive than those that don’t.

Sometimes they find that just because they have a period, it doesn’t actually mean that ovulation is taking place. What this means in the end, is that even if they are late, it doesn’t necessarily mean they are pregnant. Any woman with enough years knows that even the smallest upset in patterns and schedules can throw your system and cycles off.

Many doctors once a woman has become pregnant after they have had tubal reversal surgery will want to keep an eye on their patients in case they suffer from tubal pregnancy. This is very rare and only around 3 to 5% of all women who have this particular form of surgery are likely to suffer from an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy.

To keep track of your cycles after tubal reversal is done, you should be using an ovulation prediction kit. Follow the instructions of it and your doctor to best know when you are ovulating and when you get pregnant. One more concern in closing…you should contact your doctor if your period is late by a minimum of two days if this happens soon after resuming periods. Your doctor will be able to carry out a pregnancy test and hopefully give you the good news.
