I am having surgery Monday to remove a cyst on my right ovary. We found this because we have been trying to get pregnant and it wasn't working. So how soon after lap can we start trying? I ovulate 3 weeks after. Is that too soon?
Ask your doctor. I would not attempt it 3 weeks after. Maybe by 6 weeks you'll feel well enough, but even then, I would ask. You will have post-op follow-up appointments, so if you don't ask before, definitely ask then. And even if you do ask now, ask again then. How you're healing may change how long they need you to wait to even have sex.
