For the couple that has gone through a tubal reversal the next step is getting pregnant. Over time the woman may have charted her cycles and knows when her most fertile time is. After this the timing of intercourse is done and then the positive pregnancy test follows. Getting pregnant after a tubal reversal may take time. Many women find that it takes longer than it did before the reversal surgery. Many believe it takes longer because they are now older. It is not uncommon for it to take longer after a reversal because the truth is, they are older. This is something that is regularly discussed on the tubal reversal message board.

One of the major fears of women is miscarriage. This is a very real and valid concern to have. It seems like there are women who are reporting miscarriages on a regular basis. What causes a miscarriage? Is there something that can be done to avoid having this happen? Is there a higher rate of miscarriage after a tubal reversal? Let's look at some of the facts.

What causes a miscarriage?

There are many factors that can cause a miscarriage. The most common seems to be chromosome issues. Chromosomal abnormalities issues seem to account for about 60% of miscarriages. Another cause can be a uterus that is not shaped right. If this is the case, it is because the fertilized egg cannot attach to the lining.

Many miscarriages cannot be diagnosed. Physicians can do testing, but in many cases cannot come up with a valid diagnosis for the miscarriage. If you have had one miscarriage and there seems to be no reason as to why it happened, be patient. Miscarriage is very common and happens to many women, although knowing this may not help, the key is to be patient.

Is there something that can be done to avoid having this happen?

The most common answer to this question is being as healthy as possible. Avoid smoking, drinking alcohol and keep your weight at a healthy level. Many women view their bodies differently while trying to conceive. They understand that once pregnant that they will be carrying a child.

Is there a higher rate of miscarriage after a tubal reversal?

The rate of miscarriage after a tubal ligation reversal is not higher. There is a slightly higher risk of ectopic pregnancy following a miscarriage. Ectopic pregnancy is when the fertilized egg begins to form inside the fallopian tubes. This can be very dangerous and the pregnant woman should seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Many times a woman who has had a tubal ligation reversal will begin performing pregnancy tests very early, before the period is even missed. This can cause a few things to be noticed. After the tubal reversal the body is getting adjusted. Women will comment that they feel as though they are having pregnancy symptoms. This is most likely due to the hormones adjusting.

When a pregnancy test comes out positive before the missed period, the pregnancy is in the very early stages. The test will turn positive because there are trace amounts of the pregnancy hormone (HCG) in the urine. There are many women who know they are pregnant in the very early stages because they are excited to have the chance at pregnancy again. This is something they have waited a long time for and of course want to share it with family and friends.

Having a miscarriage is not easy and it is extremely heartbreaking. Whether you know the reason or not it still doesn't help ease the pain. The reality is that it does happen and it happens too many. Does this make it easier? No, but having support around the couple and others that understand what they are going through can help.

It is not uncommon for a woman to fear having a miscarriage following tubal ligation reversal.
