Has anyone gotten pregnant with their tubes tied?



Recommended Posts

I have been wondering about this. I had my tubes tied 4 years ago (the day after my last child was born). When a person loses weight everything loosens up; your clothes, your shoes, your jewelry. Does knots tied in ones internal organs? It would stand to reason that they would shrink along with everything else. I know for a fact, some doctors will not do a tubal immediately after birth because they say after the swelling from the pregnancy goes down, the knot will be too loose. Long story short, has anyone here gotten pregnant with their tubes tied after having the sleeve?

It would be in mine too! We have four boys ages 4, 5, 9, 10. We have our hands full. If we had any more we would have to buy a bus...and stock in a grocery store ..lol :0)

Wow! What a concept! I had a tubal 18 years ago and haven't had a ghost of a worry about pregnancy. Mine were cut, tied and burned. I know, because I was conscious and feeling it all!

My cousin's daughter was telling me recently that the "new" tubal procedure involves adding silicone blocks to the fallopian tubes to make sure an egg can't get through. I'd think that would just create more of a blockage if the tubes shrink around it.

That would be a good question to ask your doctor, though, if you're really concerned about it. :)

FYI, I took a host of questions to my doctor today during my 2 month follow up visit. As for the issue of pregnancy, he said that my (our) risk of becoming pregnant after a tubal is the same as the risk for the general population. WLS and subsequent weight loss are NOT additional risk factors for the tubal to come untied.

Ok That's good to know. My were burned as well, so hopefully I am good. I love my kids, but I am already overbooked with three sets of games, practices, and activities.

My mom had her tubes tied after my brother was born and got preggers with me a year later. How the dr. explained it, is that the tubes are cut then tied/or sutured together. After the pregnancy, mama's body goes through such a healing process that a portion on a tube "heals" itself. I would think that wls surgery shouldn't mess with tube ties.....

I know a couple where the hubby had a vasectomy after they had 3 kids, but they had another baby anyway. After the baby was born, mommy had a tubal and daddy had a second vasectomy. Then they had child number 5. So, if God intends you to have children, you will have them, no matter what.

My granny had 10 kids, then the doctor told her she had run out of umbilical cord. I thnk he did a tubal on her even though they weren't common or legal at the time. She didn't have anymore children, even though she wanted more.

I had mine tied, cut and burned when my tubal was done. And the doc shortchanged me on the anesthetic, so I felt it all. If I ever get preggo, I'm going to sue that doc for pain and suffereing TWICE. LOL

I seriously doubt that my tubal will come undone. I definitely do NOT want to start over on raising kids. Mine are 25 and 21. I would be lost with a newborn to care for 24/7. Personally, I'm waiting on grandkids!

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
