Upper right abdomen flutter. No pain. C-section 8 months ago and tubes tied.?

Pregnancy unlikely!: A tubal ligation performed at the time of c/s carries an extremely low failure rate over time. While it is never wrong to go ahead and do a pregnancy test, this seems like an unlikely explanation for your "flutter". In the right upper quadrant is your gallbladder, liver, and a portion of the large intestine. Given the lack of pain, this is of low concern but should be discused with your doctor! ...Read more

See your doctor: That is very strange and unusual. That procedure should really not cause those symptoms. So the first question is why are you having symptoms and are they related to the procedure. You likely need an ultrasound and exam to figure out. ...Read more

Pregnancy Testing: We live in a world now where symptoms are not the way pregnancy is diagnosed. Flutters alone do not a pregnancy indicate. We live in a world where just down the street at almost any kind of store you can get a home pregnancy test. Go get tested. If you are pregnant then this is a big story in your life. If you are not pregnant then the flutters are gas in your intestines. ...Read more

Don't know but it's: Not your tubes. Missed a period? If so, get a home pregnancy test. If you've not missed a period you're not pregnant. There's a lot of viral shtuff going around the USA these days. Maybe you've got a bug? If you're feeling worse by 2morrow call your DOC. Maybe the Super Bowl will cure you? Seen any of the ads yet?

Feeling fluttering lots of movement in my abdomen. I'm 38, tubes tied for 11 years and have regular periods. What could this be?

Feeling fluttering lots of movement in my abdomen. I'm 38, tubes tied for 11 years and have regular periods. What could this be?

Pregnancy worries?: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular periods, then she is presumed not pregnant. ...Read more

Hey my tubes tied no period 3 months....negative preg test what is happening?

Not ovulating: It sounds like you have delayed ovulation and it's going to take longer to get your period. Your ovulation can be delayed for many reasons: stress, endocrine problems (thyroid), other medications, weight gain, etc. You should see your doctor for an evaluation. At a minimum, you should have a period every 3 months. This can be induced with 10 days of progesterone (by prescription) every 3 months. ...Read more

Will getting tubes tied stop cysts? If not what can you do besides birth control?

Will getting tubes tied stop cysts? If not what can you do besides birth control?

No: Having your fallopian tubes tied prevents your eggs from traveling to the uterus, and prevents pregnancy, however it doesn't do anything to the ovary, so if you have problems with ovarian cysts it will not help with that. Sorry. Birth control pills are the usual treatment for recurring cysts. ...Read more

I am 26 yr old mother of a 8 month old and I want to get my tubes tied. Who will do it?

Hard to say: OB's are quite sensitive about being sued, and having a mom with 1 kid in her 20's want her tubes tied would send many into hiding. (people do change their status, get re-married, want to kids with their new man, etc.) You can call around an ask your friends. ...Read more

I have PCOS and want to get my tubes tied. Will tying my tubes have any affect on my PCOS?

I have PCOS and want to get my tubes tied. Will tying my tubes have any affect on my PCOS?

No: If you are on oral contraceptives prior to the tubal ligation keep in mind that it is the pill that is keeping your cycle regular. PCOS is associated with irregular menses so if you stop the pill when you don't need it for birth control any longer, you will likely have irregular or no menses. Many patients end up back on OC's after tubal ligation for this reason. ...Read more

Get evaluated.: If you've had your tubes tied, your risk of pregnancy is very small - but you have a greater risk of having a tubal pregnancy if you did get pregnant. There are other conditions that could cause these symptoms, though: a twisted ovarian cyst, ruptured ovarian cyst, bowel obstruction caused by abdominal scar tissue. You need to be seen to get this sorted out. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

I have my tubes tied and im off my period but I noticed some mild bleeding. What could this be?

Lots of things: If the bleeding persists more than two weeks, get with your gynecologist. Obviously, we want to rule out cancer or catch it when it is still easy to treat successfully. Cancer of both the cervix and the endometrium often present this way, and you should be commended for the pro-active approach to your health that you have already taken. ...Read more
