Delayed ovulation after laparoscopy / hysteroscopy

Hi I'm due to ovulate today according to my app, and It's usually spot on, but I've done an ovulation test the last few days and no hint of a positive yet.

I had a laparoscopy (just diagnostic - nothing removed) and hysteroscopy with a polypectomy 5 days ago. I really don't want to miss a month of TTC so was going to at least try and have sex today.

Just wondering if anyone knows if ovulation can be delayed after surgery? I can't seem to find much on Google. Does anyone have experience of this happening to them?

ANY change can delay ovulation... so surgery counts.

Mine was delayed about a week the month after surgery. but I did still ovulate.

If you've had a hysteroscopy you're not allowed to have a bath or ex for 7 days afterwards due to the risk of infection. Don't risk an infection wait a bit longer.

Sex not ex.

No one actually told me that but I didn’t feel like sex till at least 7 days later!

Thanks all. I ovulated 2 days late. I had sex last night (6 days after op). It wasn't ideal but I was desperate to not miss a month. Hopefully it's fine...

You are a better woman than me!!

Just don’t be too disappointed if this month isn’t this month. Your body has been through an operation it’s probably not ideal conception conditions

I was possibly the least sexy sex we've ever had (and that's saying something after TTC for so long). My poor husband was a bit traumatised! To be honest I'm don't get as disappointed these days when it's a BFN. Unless it's an IVF cycle. I just expect it. I couldn't not try though.

I kind of know what you mean.

I still have a couple of days of feeling sad but getting more used to the disappointment.

Hi ladies,
Wonder if you can help me. I'm due to go for a diagnostic hysteroscopy on the 14th October 2019 and by my count I'll be CD26 of a 28-30day cycle. We are off to South Africa 4 days later. Do you guys think that this will delay my period or as I've read that bleeding is associated with hysto will that make it early.

Ideally I could do with it being delayed a bit so that we can be back in the country for ovulation as I start a new treatment.

Guess just don't know what to expect and worrying that it'll scupper another month on a very expensive treatment. Also slightly worried about infections.

Hi - I don't have a proper answer sorry, but I can tell you what happened with me. After my lap / hysteroscopy I ovulated 2 days late but then got my period 2 days early, so it definitely messed things up a bit that month. Hopefully it's back to normal this month. Good luck with everything.

@Cariad82 Thanks so much for your reply and the info. Hopefully things will bounce back into Rhythm this month. Im certainly expecting some changes. All the best to you and good luck x

@Ultra26 I'm not sure about your situation, but I had a hysteroscopy with polypectomy (MyoSure procedure) and my period came 5 days early that cycle. The following cycle was 5 days late and I did ovulate later than normal in that next cycle (I know from temping). You never know, your cycle might be fine, but mine was definitely disrupted. Good luck in any case.
