When can I start IVF after a laparoscopy?????

Hi ladies. I was due to start IVF next week but got diagnosed with another ectopic yesterday and needed an emergency laparoscopy to remove my one remaining tube :-( I'm wondering when clinics say that you can start another IVF cycle after this procedure? Many thanks xxxx

Oh dear Morvc I'm so sorry about this :sadface:

Well I suppose on the upside this was done laparascopically so it means minimal scarring to recover from and minimal invasion. However you do need time to heal and like any wound 6-8 weeks is a ball park timescale. Also you'd want to be sure there was no infection post surgery etc.

I know it's not quite the same but when I had my last surgery prior to IVF at the start of Aug 07 I started down regging (long protocol that time) near the end of Oct 07. So not long at all. I didn't have a huge window to work with but they were obviously happy to start me off within about 10 weeks of surgery. That surgery took 5hrs and was massively invasive - so I reckon you'll probably be good to go in about 8-10 weeks, which would coincide with your AF getting back to normal etc.

All that aside, I hope you're doing ok :cuddle:
