I have a j-pouch, will it be hard for me to get pregnant? Could anything happen to my health during the pregnancy?

I have a j-pouch, will it be hard for me to get pregnant? Could anything happen to my health during the pregnancy?

Seek fertility MD: With a j pouch you are no longer on chemo type drugs. You should wait up to 6 months after stopping certain chemo meds like methotrexate before trying to conceive. Pelvic surgery involved in a j-pouch lowers the odds of having a pregnancy by 5times. There is only a small risk of increase in congenital problems but low birth weight and preterm births can happen more often. Talk to fertility MD. ...Read more

You may not eat secondary to anxiety, if so consider that one. Good luck. ...Read more

I had a etopic pregnacy an the doctor said it will be hard for me to get pregnant again is that true?

Maybe: It depends how the ectopic was dealt with. Surgical removal would likely cause scarring (at the least) which could reduce egg transport on that side. Even with medical management, there can be some scarring in the tube. But it is not a sure thing, so ask you doctor why it is going to be harder. ...Read more
