Keeping Track of Your Cycles After Tubal Reversal

Apr 11, 2008
Keeping an eye on their cycles after tubal reversal microsurgery is something not all women understand the whys and wherefores. They know they may stay in a hospital for one or two days for post op recovery as indicated by their doctor. They also know their bodies need several weeks of limited activity for their bodies to actually heal from the tubal ligation reversal surgery. But when their cycles are involved, they may not know just what is happening to their bodies.

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.

Often if a woman has found that she has not been able to conceive in 6 months after having the reversal operation carried out, then further checks will need to be done in order to see if there are any other underlying problems. Normally with women who find it much more difficult to conceive after having their operation reversed, it is because they had the original operation some time ago. Therefore a woman who has had the operation say only a couple of years ago compared to someone who had it 10 years ago may find it much easier to get pregnant.

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.

In addition, just because it appears you are having periods this is not a firm indication of ovulation. And just because you are late starting a period doesn't mean you are pregnant. Again, even slight changes in schedule or what you do or how you do it, can cause you cycles after tubal reversal to go haywire, especially if you are already anxious about becoming pregnant.

One more thing that is a possibility, and for which your doctor will need to keep his eyes open, is that after tubal ligation reversal surgery, some women will have a tubal pregnancy. But this only happens in three to five percent of all women and should not be a large worry.

Knowing when you are ovulating, and when you may actually have conceived, it is best to utilize an ovulation prediction kit in the cycles after tubal reversal surgery. Lastly, if you find you are late by two days, go get a pregnancy test done by your doctor.
