I have been on cryselle for almost a year. For the last two months I have had ovulation symptoms. Should I be concerned?

I have been on cryselle for almost a year. For the last two months I have had ovulation symptoms. Should I be concerned?

Not likely ovulating: With the pill, it's unlikely you are ovulating. If, by chance, you are, the pill does other things to reduce fertility, like thicken cervical mucus and thin the endometrial lining to prevent implantation. If you are concerned, however, you need to talk to your GYN. Maybe a different pill would work better. ...Read more

PDQ !: You do not say what your symptoms are, but feeling badly for a week without improvement is concerning. Consider a Prime Healthtap consult and an assessment can be made about how sick you are and what your next best steps should be. If you have something fairly simple, like a sinus infection, treatment can be initiated if it is indicated as well. Otherwise call your doc, or get seen today. ...Read more

Sometimes difficult: The cited average until desired pregnancy is 6 mo, with a range from weeks to a year.

Is it possible to get a tubal ligation reversal?

Absolutely: The length of time your tubes are tied is a zero factor. Success depends on three factors: 1. Skill of the surgeon, 2. Length of tubal segments remaining, and 3. Age of the patient. In skilled hands, the surgery is safe and the risk of an ectopic is less than 5%. An operative report may help but is not always "accurate". Ivf is also an option but generally costs a lot more.
