Hello everyone my name is Yvette and i am 39 years old. Just had a tubal reversal a couple of weeks ago after 18 years of being sterile. I remarried 1 year ago and my husband and I want to try and have a baby of our own. We have 7 kids together from our previous marriage ranging from 24 years old to the youngest 18 years old. So if this dream of ours comes true it would be a new start literally for us. We are hopeful that this will work as I will be 40 years old next month November and my husband just turned 45. Will keep posting. Many blessings to all trying to conceive as I am.

Thank you for the information Dr. Walmer. I will look into your suggestions.
Dr. Walmer when do you suggest I start trying to conceive? My tubal reversal was done October 23, 2012. I was told I could start trying after my next cycle after my surgery. My cycle is just about done I got my menses in Oct. 28th and from my calculations i am fertile and start the ovulation process from Nov 7-14. It's only been 2 weeks and by the time i become fertile it would have only been 3 weeks since my surgery. Is it safe to start having intercourse so soon after my surgery, I mean am i healed completely inside. I am healing quite nicely outside my incision but still have swelling and discomfort around my abdomen so i am afraid .View Thread
Thank you Dr. Walmer for your advise. I have been taking prenatal vitamins and folic acid for 6months now also my husband and I have seen a specialist and had my egg reserve checked as well as my husbands sperm checked. We were told that everything looked good and that even though we are in that older bracket we may have a good chance of conceiving and that is why we decided to go forward with the reversal. Another option was IVF after 1 year of trying because we are older that. time frame is pushing it a bit but it's still an option. I am a little concerned about ectopic and miscarriages at my age. Would you be so kind and tell me about this and some statistics for women with my age and after reversal.
