How soon can you ovulate after ectopic surgery?

Postby jessied » Fri Nov 02, 2012 2:55 pm

Hi
I had ectopic surgery two weeks ago which resulted in one of my fallopian tubes being removed. I did an ovulation test yesterday as I had a feeling I was ovulating and it was positive. Does anyone know if this lh surge is just a result of the ectopic pregnancy or whether I'm actually ovulating already? I'm slighted worried as we had unprotected sex the other day!
Has anyone experienced same or got pregnant immediately after ectopic surgery? Tks x

So sorry to hear you had an ectopic. I had the same last September and a tube removed as well.
I honestly have no idea of you could be ovulating already but I have to say fair dues to you for DTD so soon after surgery! I had no interest for a couple of months. Bt best of luck with your recovery and hope everything works out as you wish.
If you are worried pick up the phone to you doc or one of the midwives in your hospital.

Hi Lexie
I know I'm a little confused about ovulating so soon. I've tried to find information on it all and did eventually find some medical info that states that it is possible as your cycle could resume to normal 4 weeks after surgery, therefore possible to ovulate a couple of weeks prior to your AF arriving!
I'm not sure if it's possible to still have pregnancy hormones in my body which could be accounting for the positive ovulation test??
I doubt I could be pregnant as even if I'm currently having an lh surge it means I'll ovulate within the next 24-48hours and by the time it all happens the sperm will be a few days old so hopefully will have died off!

Either way I'm being careful from here on in as I think it's best to let me body heal internally after the surgery although I'm feeling fine - physically but maybe not mentally! It's the one time I don't want to get pregnant. I'll be eagerly awaiting the arrival of my periods. x

Not sure about ectopics but i know that is possible to get a positive opk with the hcg hormone, so maybe there is still a bit in your system. I use a fertility monitor and they say on the instructions not to use within a couple of months of miscarriage

Hi neadyneady, sorry to hear about your ectopic pregnancy, it sounds like you'd a really tough time, I hope you're doing ok considering and that things work out for you in the end. I actually went to see a counsellor the other day just to talk it though which was really beneficial and reassuring. Thankfully she seemed to think I was coping well and recommended that rather than seeing her I try alternative therapies to give my body & mind some TLC.
Anyway everything changed today when I did a pregnancy test and it came back positive! I guess I did ovulate & get pregnant...and it's definitely not anything still left from the EP as I did a pregnancy test a couple of weeks ago after I did the ovulation test. I'm almost 4 weeks over my surgery so this is all a bit much to take in but I'm seeing the doc next week and in for a scan the following so hopefully this time it'll all work out! I'm going to looking to doing some Mindfulness and couple of other things as I want to stay positive...wish me luck.
Hopefully there's hope for us all xx

Thanks MrsEL10,
After three m/c's in a row followed by an ectopic I'm really hoping this works out. All the others were planned and this one was definitely not so I'm hoping that maybe this is the one that's meant to be. Keep your fingers crossed for me! x

You're dead right to take it easy and look after yourself. I had planned on taking it easy myself after the ectopic and was even considering going skiing in the New Year as a treat but now I'm just hoping everything goes ok.
I've been to the doc's and I've a hospital appointment tomorrow. It's only been six weeks since surgery so I'm not sure if they'll do an early scan or if I'll have to go back next week.
I'm nervous this time around and have started acupuncture to help relieve a bit of anxiety. I don't know how I'll handle it if anything goes wrong this time but I'm hopeful that maybe this "accident" is the one that's meant to be!
Look after yourself and take all the time in world, needless to say you'll know when you're ready to tcc again. Take care xx

Got my scan today...we're having twins! Can't believe it, nearly 6 weeks pregnant and seen two little heart beats, I was building myself up for bad news so couldn't believe it! I just hope it all goes well this time, I'm back in two weeks for another scan so I'm going to stay positive. Sorry just thought I'd update you and give you a bit of hope for the futre xx

I am going through the same thing & found this post via google. I became a member just to find out how everything went. Also to say being able to read about your experience has helped me all the way in the United States.

Any updates on the twins?
