What you said was horrible. You should be ashamed. And you’re wrong, by the way. Pregnancy isn’t advised this soon, but it is most certainly not dangerous to mother or child. They tell you not to get pregnant because it derails your weight loss goals, NOT because you can’t get proper nutrition.

This woman’s post needs to be reported.


As of October 12, 2017, I am 4 months post op and have lost 100 pounds. I have reached my goal weight and could not be more ecstatic!

How do you know that what I suggested might be what she's looking for? , since she's petrified. You act like it's some terrible choice and sometimes it's the best choice. Stop being judgmental .

Reported for what?

For trolling, for insensitivity, for being rude. And the admin agreed with me. They said “oh my. We will deal with this. Thank you.” So, I’m sure you’ll be notified.

You didn’t “suggest” anything. You said “get an abortion”. That’s a directive. You followed it with no other words whatsoever. Also, I’m sure she is aware of the option to abort the child. Your saying “get an abortion” offered no help, no compassion, no insight, no helpful advice in any way. You were trying to upset people and looking to troll. Thankfully, they don’t seem to allow this type of behavior here. Have a nice day.

I’m not sure what’s going on with our members lately.

The response to get an abortion was insensitive and a very poor choice of words but that doesn’t give members the right to not follow our posted rules!!

Please read through https://www.bariatricpal.com/guidelines/ . If you can’t follow rules please find another site to receive and provide support!

Members can REPORT posts. Calling members trolls or anything else is taking matters into your own hands. You can REPORT a post if you’d like to help out. Responding to a post by name calling just inflames things. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

I really don’t want to ban memebrs but if we have to, we will!

It is not advised to get pregnant within 2 Years of bariatric surgery, however, it does happen and it is simply recommended to get to the doctor and that you will need to follow strict guidelines to ensure health for both mother and child.

Absolutely. It does happen even if women do use birth control (anyone not believing this for whatever reason: look up pearl index). She's not the first woman and won't be the last so her team should know how to deal with this to make sure mother and baby are getting healthy thourhg pregnancy.

Regarding not getting pregnant after WLS for a while: So far I've read 2 years and 18 months on this thread. The hospital I got surgery at advises women to not get pregnant within the first year.

In sum: another issue without a reliable guideline to follow.
