If your doctor is: Sure that this is nothing more than a lipoma, you should wait until you deliver to have it removed. You should show it to a surgeon too, because it could be an abdominal wall hernia. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Benign lipoma likely: Lipoma is fatty tissue which is usually easily compressible; If a massive size, there might be difficulty; if the size is not massive, there is no reason why a pregnancy would be affected, as the pregnancy is almost always within the uterus which is muscular and protective. ...Read more

Hi, I have cyst removed from both of my ovaries on 2009. Do I have chances to get pregnant? If yes, will there be any complication during pregnancy?

Hi, I have cyst removed from both of my ovaries on 2009. Do I have chances to get pregnant? If yes, will there be any complication during pregnancy?

Pregnancy: As long as your doctors left behind some normal ovarian tissue you should be fine. However, if you were told you have polycystic ovarian syndrome, you may require some assistance getting pregnant. In general having cysts won't complicate pregnancy once you've conceived. ...Read more

I have eccessive pain during intercouse and had my fallopean tubes removed due to ectopic pregnancy and was wondeeing what could be the cause?

I have eccessive pain during intercouse and had my fallopean tubes removed due to ectopic pregnancy and was wondeeing what could be the cause?

Not the ectopic: Painful intercourse has several possible causes. The ectopic surgery is usually not one of them, though adhesions (scar tissue inside your belly from the surgery) can cause painful sex at times. Most often, pain with sex is lack of lubrication (use something like KY jelly) or lack of interest (are you making love or having sex?). An exam &specific details about when & where the pain is would help. ...Read more

Can having gallbaldder removed cause elevated liver enzymes during pregnancy 7 years later?

Unlikely: Elevated liver enzymes in pregnancy are very worrisome and unlikely to be due to surgery you had 7 years ago if there haven't been problems before. The is a form of severe preeclampsia (toxemia) that is called HELLP. This stands for hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelets.This is very serious and your doctor will be evaluating you for it as well as other causes. Good luck. ...Read more

Can a dermoid cyst affect a baby's development if not removed? Does 7x8x6 dermoid on right ovary neccessarily have to removed during pregnancy?

Ovarian tumors: As long as the dermoid doesn't twist on its own blood supply (torsion) and cause severe pain, in general they are left alone until postpartum. On occasional ovarian tumors need to be removed in the second trimester, but I always suggest getting a maternal fetal medicine opinion before removing if possible. ...Read more

Was my left ovary removed during my etpoic pregnancy? I know my fallopian tube was removed. Also can the fallopian tube grow back? Is it possible

Was my left ovary removed during my etpoic pregnancy? I know my fallopian tube was removed. Also can the fallopian tube grow back? Is it possible

They don't grow back: The ectopic pregnancy that was removed during surgery was likely on or very close to both your ovary and the tube, so both were removed. The tube will not grow back. However, the ovary and tube on the other side are unaffacted, and if you desire pregnancy they should work fine so long as they're healthy. ...Read more

Had a etopic pregnancy in 2013, with my ex partner. They removed my right fallopian tube and ovary during my surgery. Why am I not getting pregnant>?

Had a etopic pregnancy in 2013, with my ex partner. They removed my right fallopian tube and ovary during my surgery. Why am I not getting pregnant>?

Many reasons possibl: Well, for one, you only have half the chance of getting pregnant with only one remaining tube and ovary. Many times an ectopic is caused by other diseases in the tube which cause blockage or scarring. Your new partner may also have a problem with his sperm. The best test for you is a hysterosalpingogram and for him is a semen analysis ...Read more

So mirena (levonorgestrel) was removed 3/13, I believe I have pregnancy symp. Neg test, yesterday during sex, my husband said my breast taste metallic. Why is that? Thanks

Trust the test: The first step is to repeat a home pregnancy test. They are quick, reliable and easy to do. If the test is negative then you are not pregnant. In that case you can monitor the cycle over the next few days and schedule a visit with an obgyn to discuss birth control. If the pregnancy test is positive then you will need to see an obgyn soon to be evaluated. ...Read more

I had a laparoscopy salpingectomy and my right fallopian tube was removed during the surgery. After 2 months, I tried to conceive and the pregnancy test is negative. What shouldi do?

Discuss with Gyn: Information needed is the reason your right tube was removed...Ectopic? Hydrosalpinx? Torsion? Your gyn should have information regarding the health of your remaining tube, we usually assess this during surgery (was chromotubation done?). If all normal, give it time. Confirm that you ovulate, check semen analysis, & if no success in 6 months-consider an hsg to assess your remaining tube. Take care. ...Read more
