Tubal reversal 

March 6, ,2005


Pregnancy #1  m/c



August 2005

In March of 2005 I had the tubal reversal done with Dr. Levy in Rio Bravo. 3 weeks ago I had a positive pregnancy test. Last Friday I started cramping and went to the E.R. on Monday I lost my baby.  My first thought was that it could be a tubal pregnancy which thank God it wasn't.  Upon being checked by the Dr. at the E.R. and by my GYN both concurred that they couldn't determine what caused the abortion but at my age (40) it is common for this kind of thing to happen.

On the bright side I was told that my reversal was a success and neither of them saw any reason for me not to continue trying, nor any reason why I wouldn't be able to conceive until full term. I hope the next time that I write is to let everybody know that I am pregnant again and that everything is going great.

I'm writing this as a form of inspiration to other women who have concerns about the operation for reversal and for woman who at my age are trying to decide whether or not to go through with it. I did and even though I had one bad experience I'm willing to keep trying and I hope this will help you decide to take the first step as well.
