Has anyone gotten pregnant with their tubes tied?


11 posts in this topic

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?

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.....
