Question: laparoscopy and hysterescopy

 aso89 - Sat Sep 22, 2007 8:14 am

I am a 18 year old female. I have had an elective c-section 13 weeks ago due to the breech presentation of my son. I have had no gynecology problems in the past. I had a coil fitted wrongly a week ago which had escaped my uterus through my c-section scar within, and caused me a lot of pain. The coil was fitted last week. I had to have laparoscopy and hysterescopy to remove the coil through a new incision on my bikini line which was only a centemeter or so. I also have an incision on my belly button.

My question is when i resume having intercourse as i cannot remember my surgeons advice due to the effect of the general anaesthetic.

Also, will such surgery affect my later pregnancy's? will it cause any difficulties?

User avatar Hi,
As long as you are feeling up to it and not having pain, you could probably resume intercourse any time now. This additional surgery should not affect your vagina.

As for future pregnancies - yes, the C section can have some effect but I would not expect a problem relating to the coil removal. You would be a candidate for a VBAC delivery (vaginal birth after c section) if your doctor does these. There is always a slight risk of uterine rupture from a past scar but it is not common. You also have an increased risk of a future c section as well as a low-lying placenta.

I hope this helps.
