A lap myomectomy (removd 3*3cm size-submucos, intramuralfibroids) affect my future pregnancy? I miscaried due to fibroid at 6th month.

A lap myomectomy (removd 3*3cm size-submucos, intramuralfibroids) affect my future pregnancy? I miscaried due to fibroid at 6th month.

Hopefully not: Removal of the fibroid will hopefully allow you to have a normal pregnancy, although you may need a caesarean section depending on the extent of the surgery. Your next pregnancy(s) will need to be monitored closely. Hopefully all the fibroids were removed as they tend to grow in pregnancy and may cause problems. Talk to your dr about these concerns. ...Read more

Had lap surgery last for ectopic pregnancy would my doc have able to tell then if I had endometriosis? Or would just be focus on tr pregnancy?

Had lap surgery last for ectopic pregnancy would my doc have able to tell then if I had endometriosis? Or would just be focus on tr pregnancy?

Could: If your ectopic was ruptured, the bleeding could have obscured any endometriosis. Otherwise, it would depend on whether or not the doctor looked at the entire pelvis which I'm sure would be done if you had a history of any symptoms. Ask to find out for sure. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Ovarian drilling lap and dye done. No spill through the left tube. Does that mean it's definitely blocked? And if so what are the chances of pregnancy

Ovarian drilling lap and dye done. No spill through the left tube. Does that mean it's definitely blocked? And if so what are the chances of pregnancy

Not necessarily: It's nice to see dye coming from both tubes, but it's possible that there was not enough pressure to force the dye though the left tune. So it's not definately closed. Since the right was open, I assume, that should not be an issue. The issue will be if the ovarian drilling helps you start ovulating. ...Read more

I had a paostpartum mini lap tubal ligation  3 years ago. I  now exhibiting early symptoms of pregnancy. I just started my period this morning. It is 10 days early and bright red. I also started my period a week early last month and it was not a normal pe

Pregnancy Test ASAP: Any tubal ligation can fail. Since pregnancy risk is higher for an ectopic pregnancy, you should immediately check a pregnancy test, if positive, see your doc today or go to the er. Since you had a tubal ligation done, a positive test means an ectopic pregnancy until proven otherwise. Good luck and don't delay. Tubal rupture can be life threatening. ...Read more

7 yrs no pregnancy, 3 times iui, past history pcos but they've gone, had lap dr found scar tissue . Can scar tissue cause infertility? Gonna ivf.

More complicated: PCOS is more than about ovarian problems. It involves problems with glucose metabolism as well. Some times being treated with metformin (Glucophage) can significantly improve fertility. Have her see an endocrinologist. Scar tissue can certainly interfere with fertility. ...Read more

How long does shoulder pain last after laparoscopic surgery? I had a lap for an ectopic pregnancy yesterday and I am feeling a lot of pain in my shoulder.  I think it may be from the intraabdominal gas they use to blow up the belly during surgery.  How lo

Varies: The gas pain will go away quickly in most cases. The specific time will depend on a number of factors including how long was the surgery, what was done during the surgery, how heavy is the patient, how quickly can the patient be up and ambulating, etc. It can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days. ...Read more

Can a pregnancy cause complication with corrected intestinal malrotaion, can the LAD bands break or move causing a new complication or an old one?

Can a pregnancy cause complication with corrected intestinal malrotaion, can the LAD bands break or move causing a new complication or an old  one?

Yes-but: Any abdominal surgery leads to scar tissue (adhesions). Lad's bands refers specifically to the type seen before fixing the problems with malrotation. So is a complicated answer, but most women have normal pregnancies who have had prior abdominal surgery. Best is to tell your ob, and together you can decide if a high risk OB (maternal-feto medicine specialist) needs to be involved. ...Read more
