How Long After Having A Baby Can You Have A Tubal Ligation Done
During the C-section: A tubal ligation is usually performed during the c-section after the baby is delivered. This is to prevent another surgery in the future and any undesired pregnancy that could occur during the recovery period after the c-section. The tubal ligation provides immediate contraception and only takes an additional 5 minutes to perform. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but need help: A Pomeroy tubal ligation is a common way to "tie your tubes" at the time of a c/section. The tubes are tied with suture, a segment is cut out and sometimes the remaining ends are cauterized. The chance of getting pregnant is about 7.5/1000 (.75%). That is a very low chance. If you want to get pregnant, its still possible to get pregnant with help from a fertility specialist. Best wishes! ...Read more
No.: A tubal ligation, or having your "tubes tied, " is a permanent and irreversible method of contraception. The surgery is done by cutting through the fallopian tubes so pregnancy cannot occur. There is no need for a hysterectomy - having the uterus removed - for a tubal ligation. A hysterectomy would typically only be performed if there was a disease process within the uterus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How is it possible to have a child after a tubal ligation and a Novasure procedure? I am remarried and we would love to have a baby together.
IVF: On rare occassions, tubals can be reversed. Much higher success with IVF (in vitro fertilization), where eggs are retrieved from mom and then fertilized in the lab with dad's sperm and then implanted into the uterus. This bypasses the tubes so it doesn't matter if you've had a tubal. You need to sit down and have a nice consultation with a fertility specialist/clinic in your area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6 weeks at earliest.: Because of the amount of inflammation that occurs as the cervix and uterus are healing and returning to normal after a delivery (vaginal or cesarean section) you should wait at least six weeks before having a pap smear. Normally your obstetrician will perform one no sooner than 12 months after your last pap smear or in 3-6 months if you have had abnormal paps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6 weeks: According to the fda, the uterus must heal after delivery for 6 weeks before the essure procedure. The procedure itself is very brief and at times may be done in the physician's office, under local anesthesia. After 3 months, a test is done to confirm you have permanent birth control.

Very unlikely: If these procedures were done correctly and in a way that the tubes could not reconnect, then pregnancy is not going to happen. A partial hysterectomy lowers that possibility. If you are having pregnancy type symptoms after all this, then check with your OB-Gyn to see if there is some other problem. ...Read more
Very difficult: That would extremely unlikely. Do you still have any menses whatsoever? The ablation is the real obstacle here. Even without tubes you can conceive with IVF. But the fact that your endometrium has been ablated is a major challenge. You would likely need a surrogate to carry the pregnancy which is very expensive. ...Read more
Depends: Depends on many factors. Most importantly age. As women get older, ovaries diminish in egg numbers and quality. Even though the tubes can be reversed in an older woman her ovaries may not allow for a pregnancy. Therefore a thorough evaluation for other fertility factors prior to a tubal reversal may be needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
YES: Whether you conceive naturally or will need fertility therapy will depend on the status of your other fallopian tube. Is the other tube blocked? Was it removed? Did whatever damaged the one tube effect the other? Seek the care of an obgyn or re/i to check your remaining tube. This will give you valuable information as to whether its possible to conceive naturally or if you will need ivf. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Depends: I usually perform some sort of follow up evaluation after the surgery to make sure that the whole fibroid is gone. That can be done with hysterosonogram or office hysteroscopy or hsg. If fibroid is gone then i usually tell the couple that it is fine to start trying...Assuming there are no other issues. Good luck. ...Read more
