I heard that it can take up to 8 weeks to fully recover from a tubal. I had a scheduled C section, and a tubal. I am now one month post, and I feel tender still in areas, and still feel kinda bloated. I just started to feel little "twinges" on my left side, in my ovarie area. They are sharp, and only come on at times.. Anyway, remember, I had a C section also, so the recovery time for just a tubal is probably sooner.

AnswerI had a tubal ligation laproscopically (not at the time of a pregnancy/birth)last week. It is exactly one week later, and I feel totally fine, and have resumed all my normal activities and sexual intercourse. The first day I was groggy from the anesthesia and a little sore around my belly button (where the incision was). The second day, I was sore around my neck area from the gas they used to bloat my diaphragm for the surgery. The third day, I was able to lift my son again, and my belly wasn't sore, but the second small incision in the pubic area was a bit tender. But by the fourth day, I felt great. After one week, I still have bruising around my belly button, but am back to normal otherwise! :) AnswerI am 43 and had my tubes tied the beginning of Feb. The recovery was pretty quick. I had a sore belly(like I did too many sit ups!) for a few days and gas pains. I had the surgery on Friday and went back to work on Tuesday. You just can't do any heavy lifting for a few weeks. I really did feel back to normal in about a week.

Depends if you had the tubal the same time you had the baby it would be 6-8 weeks. If you went back to have it done it would be about 6 weeks but you need to get cleared by your doctor first.

It is risky at any age. It is most recommended by doctors that the man get a vasectomy rather than the woman get a tubal ligation. The recovery time is less for men and it is less risky since there are fewer tubes and less chance of complications.

Today, most tubal ligation is done laparoscopically. Recovery is quite rapid with normal activities after about 10 days or two weeks.

User Avatar

a week is the normal recovery.. However when I had mine tied, I suffered from a UTI for 3 days. It was the worse I have ever had.. My recovery took almost 3 full weeks of rest before I felt better.

Women bleed for different amounts of time after a tubal ligation. if you are heavily bleeding after 4 days, you should see a physician as soon as possible.

The more time that passes after a tubal ligation the (slightly) higher the risk of regeneration of the fallopian tube/s. It is extremely rare but it can happen. Because there is scar tissue from the tubal ligation, there is also an increase chance of a tubal pregnancy. If your period suddenly stops, whether you are having symptoms of pregnancy or not, take a pregnancy test or see your OB / GYN.

Yes, many women have tubal ligation and C-sections at the same time. Having two separate operations is too expensive and creates more downtime for women.

Tubal ligation reversal surgery is much more successful than many realize. I recent study published by Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center fives the actual statistics. The two main factors are the type of ligation that was performed as well as your age at the time of reversal. Another factor to keep in mind is the experience the surgeon has (pretty self explanatory).

Yes, the more time that passes after the tubal ligation the higher the chance your body will heal itself. The chance of conception is still very small but it is possible.

I had a baby 5 months ago and a tubal ligation, I had spotting after my pregnancy and that's it so far. No period! Yet....... and im not prego

There is less than a half a percent chance of getting pregnant after tubal ligation. In other words, for every 200 people that get tubal ligation done, one will be able to become pregnant. It is possible, but it is not probable, particularly if you have been having unprotected sex with a husband this entire time, and have not gotten pregnant until now.

I had a tubal ligation 6 yrs ago Now you have missed a period and feel like you did the last time you were pregnant Just wondering if it is possible?"

User Avatar

It's very rare but it does happen. Tubal ligation has less than a 2% failure rate but the tubes have been know to grow back together over time. You are at higher risk for ectopic pregnancy which can be life threatening if not treated quickly after having tubal ligation. If you feel that you may be pregnant you should see a Dr as soon as possible. If you want to get pregnant after a tubal ligation you can look into reversal surgery and/or IVF treatments.

"Yes, you can, and recovery is generally very quick. The surgery is done in an out-patient setting, with a small incision above the hairline, and repair is done quickly. There may be some minor pain medication prescribed, but the procedure is minor and recovery time is usually short."

A tubal ligation is considered permanent birth control, but there is still a margin of error. You could become pregnant any time afterward. It is estimated that 143 women in 10,000 (1.43%) get pregnant after tubal ligations.

Complete Cesarean delivery code is 59510,this includes: routine ob care, antepartum care, the C-section and postpartum care. The code for the bilateral tubal ligation is 58611. This is the ligation or transection of fallopian tubes (s) when done at the time of c-section delivery (not a separate procedure).

My doctor told me no heavy lifting(over 10 pounds) for three weeks. I had it done with the scope thru my belly button. She said lifting could cause a hernia.

User Avatar

yes if you find a doctor that specializes in tubal reversal and performs myomectomys my doctor will do them at same time but i have pay for reversal insurance wont cover it.

User Avatar

Definitely! Its very rare depending on the time range from when you had your tubal but it is not impossible. The tubal ligation procedure is not 100%!

User Avatar

When a tubal ligation heals itself it happens slowly, over time. There would be no changes in sensation.

User Avatar

Healing time after a tubal ligation varies depending on the person and type of anesthesia used. If general anesthesia is used the patient should not operate a car for 24 hours. Most post-surgery symptoms go away within 2-5 days.

You can get pregnant, but it is not likely. However, if you think you are you should see a doctor since most end in tubal pregnancy.
