Any women in here 40+ planning to have children? I'm praying for my miracle baby, lost my 1st one had a Etopic pregnancy in 2001. After I have the surgery in January, how quick did you get pregnant? I heard you get very fertile. Should I start taking folic acid after?

I’m sorry for your loss. I’ve heard that you do become very fertile but most surgeons warn against getting pregnant in the first year. I’d definitely talk to your surgeon about it. Best of luck to you!

Ditto the previous poster - my surgeon and OBGYN both said two years before trying because of the risk of malnutrition to you and the baby, and potential developmental issues. I would consult both of those people.
