Ehlers danlos syndrome, tubal ligation and pregnancy(6 Posts)
Not sure if there's a specific group for EDS so if anyone knows one and could point me in the right direction that would be great.
I had my tubes tied a year ago and since then my periods have been like clockwork however this month I'm a week late and feeling sick and feeling like I did at the start of my other pregnancies.
I know the chances of me being pregnant is incredibly slim however I didn't know if because I have EDS and we tend not to heal well there might be a chance? And if so it could be eptopic.
I don't really know what my question is and no idea if what I've said makes any sense but I can't seem to find any info about it online whether I'd be more at risk of it failing because of the EDS or whether I'm just late and it's all in my mind lol
Do anyone have any idea? Or information?
Hey, I have EDS too 👋🏻 Tbh I’ve never heard that EDS would affect this specific set of circumstances but as you know, it affects an awful lot you never think about.
The only way you’ll know is to speak to a specialist and the only way you’ll know for sure about a possible pregnancy is to do a test. I hope you get the result you want.
Alternatively there’s some really helpful EDS groups on Facebook, altho you sometimes have to take some posts with a pinch of salt!
I didn't really think about it until I thought oh we don't heal properly like normal people 😂 DH is now out of his mind with the prospect of it happening, going between nah you won't be and why would you get pregnant again?!
I can't get to the shops yet to get a test until Monday so I guess I'll have to wait until then, I just didn't know if anyone would have more info about it as I can't find anything which I suppose would mean it's not a thing for us zebras
Yeah if I'm honest I can't stand most of the FB groups, they seem to be very woe to me, don't get me wrong this is a horrible thing to live with, I know I've suffered but it all gets a bit negative after a while and brings your mood down, they're just not for me, thank you for the suggestion though 😊
Sorry I couldn’t be any more help. I know how you feel tho, with always second guessing everything cause we’re just not normal !
Oh I completely agree but you don’t often find that many people with EDS in one place, so for specific questions, I find it quite helpful if you sift through.
But I know exactly what you mean about the negative vibe those groups can attract.. as if we need to dwell on every single little negative!
