What Is The Reason Why Tubal Ligation Is Usually Done Right After Giving Birth
Post-partum tubal: Because 1) she is in the hospital, 2) may be at risk for pregnancy after going home, 3) it is done easily through an incision right below the navel - the uterus is still large enough to access her tubes that way. The next opportunity is 6 weeks later; this requires laparoscopy because the smaller uterus is now behind the pubic bone, and her tubes can no longer be accessed easily from above. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What to do if I have had a pomeroy's tubaligation. is it possible to become pregnant after this type of procedure without having the reversal done?
Yes: A small percentage of women will get pregnant on their own in spite of having a tubal ligation such as the Pomeroy. Its also possible to have in-vitro fertilization. In this instance fertilization occurs in the lab and the fertilized embryo is implanted in a way that bypasses the tubal ligation. Best wishes! ...Read more
Does having endometrial cyst is also considered as pcos?Had left oopeherectomy last month.And is this the best time to get pregnant? Im turning 26.Thx
No; depends. : Endometrioma (endometriosis manifested by cyst in ovary) is not associated with pcos. They are two different entities. You can have one or the other, or both, or neither. As for trying to conceive with one ovary, while probably not urgent at age 26yo, it would seem prudent to consider trying to conceive as soon as one is ready. ...Read more
If a TKR was done 3 yrs ago, and the knee is very frequently giving out, what does it mean? Is it failing?
What is the possability and risks of pregnancy occuring after both a tubal ligation with a uteral ablation! how rare is it and can it occur twice?
Much less than 1%: Endometrial ablation is not a sterilization procedure and cannot be relied on for pregnancy prevention, though it probably reduces the risk. Most methods of tubal ligation have failure rates of less than 1%, so one can get pregnant after having both and lightning can strike twice! ...Read more
Hard to say: The rate of pregnancy per month is about 10-15. %. If timing the ovulation, and i assume you mean just after ovulation, it mat be higher. It's new to humanity to time ovulation, i would be considering the 15% range. If way after ovulation, theoritcally it is low; human error is high, however, thus 50% of pregnancies in the us are unplanned. Good luck. ...Read more
How dangerous is it to have 2 abortions 8 months apart? What are the long time consequences? 1st was surgical (suction). Is the pill method better?
Can be harmful: There are no research studies to address your question appropriately. Certainly, having too many abortions can have long-lasting effect, particularly infertility. I can't say if the pill method is safer than surgical. The best option is for you to discuss with an ob/gyn doctor. ...Read more
After pills abortion its been an year my doctor asking me to go for an ultrasound as womb is not aborted completely is this possible?Cramps are left
Yes, it is possible: After any miscarriage or abortion, it is possible to have some pregnancy tissue retained within the uterus. Many times it will not be noticeable to the patient. "retained products of conception" may be discovered by saline ultrasound or hysterosalpingogram. This may require additional surgery, such as a d & c or hysteroscopy, where a small camera is inserted into the uterus. ...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

Myomectomy & sex: After myomectomy you can have sex when you've healed from surgery - usually 3-4 weeks. Depends on whether done laparoscopically or by laparotomy. We like for patients to avoid trying to conceive for 3 months. That's how long it generally takes for the scar on the uterus to have healed sufficiently to withstand expansion and stretching of the uterus associated with pregnancy. ...Read more
Is it common for women to conceive naturally/spontaneously after the age is 40? What are the chances?
Yes!: Ovulation still occurs as long as menses are occurring. The eggs are not as healthy, so pregnancy is not as frequent, but can occur 30-50% of the time instead of 85%, over a year of trying. So definitely use birth control if you do not want to be pregnant. If you desire pregnancy, the process can be accelerated with fertility treatment. Do not count on age for birth control. I have had a 52-year-o. ...Read more
Varies: There is no specific time restriction, it works as well sooner and later. results vary with "how" the ligation was down. Generally use of clips (Hulka, Filshie) or rings (Yoon, Fallope) give the best reversals, postpartum (Pomeroy) type ligations are often also very good. Anything involving cautery ("burning") usually will give a less good result. ...Read more
