2 weeks after having vaginal labor and a tubal ligation, I had unprotected sex with my husband. Is this ok?

2 weeks after having vaginal labor and a tubal ligation, I had unprotected sex with my husband. Is this ok?

Don't do it: If you had unprotected sex and you are bottle feeding this early you may be pregnant by 6 weeks out. After delivery, you may ovulate at least twice before 6 weeks out. In addition, the reason we ask you to abstain for 5-6 weeks is that you are at risk from infection. Sex definitely if done too early can result in serious uterine infection. And it takes 6 weeks tubal ligation to be 100% effective. ...Read more

Is it safe to have sex 3 weeks after c-section and tubal ligation?

Is it safe to have sex 3 weeks after c-section and tubal ligation?

Questionable: It is "safe" in the sense that you probably won't become pregnant from the experience:-) Could cause some pain and possibly an ascending infection in the uterus. Sex happens frequently but the infection risk is rare. However, I do think the risk benefit ratio falls in favor of abstinence till after 4 weeks minimum and 6 weeks preferably. ...Read more

I have a tubal ligation with C-Sect.  If I had sex recently and then had my period and then took preg. Test which was neg., no chance of preg correct?

If you had a tubal: Ligation and it was presumably successful, then had your period and had negative HPT, you should not be pregnant. All those steps were taken to make sure of that. However, you should still protect yourself from sexually transmitted diseases as a tubal ligation does not prevent you from contracting one. Of course this depends on your partner too.

, need gynecologist: To check why, usually pregnacy test even though tubal. Then pelvic ultrasound, tubals cause alot of cramps and 4x likelyhood of hysterectomy later but you are very young for even that.

Different type of tubal ligation?

Clipping vs scarring: There are two ways of doing this. The first, more traditional, is to surgically clip the tubes, tying each end so fertilization cannot occur. A newer way is to insert a coil (example: essure) that causes the tube to constrict and scar down, no longer allowing passage of sperm upward, or eggs downward. This is usually performed without surgery so it can be less expensive and faster recovery. ...Read more

What is getting a tubal ligation like?

Depends: Is it being done at the time of a c-section or just the tubal? If done at the time of c-section, you won't even know you had it. If as a stand-alone surgery, you will have pain from the incision(s) but it resolves very quickly.

Your obgyn should be able to give you specific details of how he/she does it.

Good luck. ...Read more
