Welcome, raf-wife. I have never heard that having ostomy surgery can make it difficult to become pregnant. There are several women on here who have had babies after surgery. Hopefully, they'll post soon.

Have you discussed this with your OB/GYN? Maybe he or she can run some tests to find out what is going on.

Wishing you all the best,

Some times scar tissue can complicate things...glad to hear you are being check out...sometimes you just need a little help after having major abdominal surgery.

I too am concerned about being able to concieve especially after having so many surgeries. Please keep us posted. I'm waiting for another surgery. I had corrective jpouch surgery about 6 weeks ago and reversal will be in about 6 to 12 weeks. GOOD LUCK with TTC
