Post subject: Had reversal done:) Couple of questions........
Hope everyone is well, i dnt often post but come on here regular for a little reading lol
I finally went ahead and had reversal done at doncaster parkhills with Dr Emovan on 10th june . Dr Emovan said op went well! And also he told me that i was sterilised with rings and not clips that i got told when inquiring on how i first got sterilised! He said the left side was more difficult but went well and tubes was saved! He also said that once i was up and ready to just get it on obviously not in them words lol
Now my questions are (sorry ladies):-
My last period was 31may and im on a 26 day cycle and so was due my period monday, I have not even had any signs that its on its way? Im thinking that because i have had an op would that mess up my cycle?
Also I hav been a lil active on bedroom scene but surely i couldnt have got caught so soon? I myself dont think its this? Has anybody got caught soon after havin reversal?
Its day 17 after having my op and feeling ok but find that i get very tired very quickly i havent ventured out much at all twice in 17 days n definately havent walked far! Is this normal?
Also sumtimes my scar on 1 side seems to feel like its burning is this the normal feeling as its healing still?

Anythings possible Your op could have delayed your cycle , and you could be pregnant if you did the deed around the time you ovulated but without knowing when that was it's very hard to say whats going on , there is a lady in the reversal section who got pregnant less than 2 weeks after her op and there was one last year (I think) who got pregnant the first month trying but she had an AF in between , so it does sometimes happen
had keyhole surgery not open so i was only slightly sore and bruised and back to normal within 4-5 days , but some of the ladies who had open took much longer to feel normal again,several weeks
I know I had the burning you described after my c sections if i did too much though so I'd say that could be normal for after an op
Good luck though FX you are pregnant , because waiting for that BFP after this op is a killer xxx

Thank you ladies
An WOW really!! So im best just taking a test to just to check! Im not holding my breathe over it being positive as we not really 'offically' trying yet as im still recovering really! lol but even not trying can result in a positive i suppose lol
But if im not then im interested in learning how to find out when i ovulate. It might sound silly but I know I ovulate from tests done by doctors but I dont know much about finding out when im ovualting Think I have some research to do! I have never really bothered as never needed to do it before having the op! Thats sounds a bit daft really when we wanting another baby! Is there anything on website that explains how to start? or an easy way of working it roughly out? I have seen ovulating sticks when i have been out but these seem quite expensive??

You can get them more cheaply on amazon and ebay , i get these
and they work fine for me , and as they're so cheap you can test on lots of days the first cycle to get a good idea of when you ovulate, on a 26 day cycle it could be anything from day 8 to day 16 , but more likely between day 10 and 14 , so you just pee on a stick once a day from a few days before the earliest you think you might ov and when the second line is as dark as the control line it means you're getting your surge and you should ov in the next day or two .
If you don't want to get into testing though (and it can get a bit addictive ) then you can just keep an eye on cm (cervical mucus) and watch for it changing to clear and watery which is a sign you're getting more fertile and then looking like raw egg white and being stretchy which is a sign you're very close to ov and then after ov it tends to got white again .
It's amazing what you start to notice once you're TTC again .
i found my cycles got more erratic after my reversal though and went from being 30/31 days like clockwork for 8yrs to suddenly being anything from 28 to 36 but not everyone does so things may settle down after this month xx

Thanks for info
well I got a clear blue test and also a cheap priced 1 from a cheap shop (well my eldest daughter did for me) and the clear blue one I'm sure it looked like a very faint line and thn the 2nd which was different make, showed a bfn!?! I'm nt sure if it was just my eyes playing up when I was looking or wether it's just what happens with them clear blue tests? But i know that Ive still not got my period and I'm 3 days over. At the minute I'm just putting it down to me only having my reversal on 10th June n still recovering and that the op could of just messed up my cycle a little maybe?
Not sure really what to do next just wait a few more days and see if my period arrives and if not just test again, just don't know how many days I should wait lol not sure if I'm feeling any strange feelings as past few days have felt a lil strange inside near where tubes are that don't feel like what I usually feel b4 I'm due on n certain smells are smelling really strong and makes me feel sick a little bit but then again that could just be my brain playing tricks wiv me lol

If it was the clearblue +/- ones then they're notorious for giving false postives , i had two out of a triple pack that had quite strong but thin lines on them stupid things really got my hopes up , but that doesn't mean you still couldn't be pregnant and it's just too early to show if you ovulated late because of the op, FX you get that BFP xx

Well tHe witch arrived before bedtime on Thursday! But on a good note this means I can start doing my ovulation checks now this month and can officially class myself as ttc again
Also it's been 3 weeks now since op and I'm now grin fed up of sleeping on my back lol I usually sleep on my front You think it's ok now to go on my front? Silly question inoooo lol and also when did you start driving again? I'm unsure and don't want tojepordise anything while recovering incase I make something bad happens I still get some pain on either side at times when I'm stretching which hurts still is that normal?

Sorry ladies.............Another question
The witch has been and gone now but my problem is we have had some jiggie jiggie lol but since yesterday i have what i class as spotting?? Not enough to wear anything and colour is a lil brownish red and this morning was bit more and more reddish and have to use panty liner. Sorry if to much info I have had some what i can only describe as a hot shooting pain down below but not really a hurting pain! if you know what i mean? and im feeling a bit sickie this morning and got headache. Not a good day lol Just wondering if i should be concerned?Or if anybody else has had similar feelings after TR? or am i just over worrying because of me having the op? lol
P.s Hope every1 is well

Tuesday was fine infact i felt great lol then we had lil fun that night and then from wednesday when i woke up was spotting and again 2day with feeling sickie also the on n off wierd hot pains either side dwn below. I know its only been 4 weeks since op and so still recovering really. Its been 10yrs since i hav had to worry bwt bein ttc lol so its like all new again to me haha maybe im just over worrying because of the op that im feeling everything that my body is giving out if that makes sense? lol I just feel bit daft asking all strange questions you would think being a women you would, and know everything about your body and how it works lol
