Pregnancy after Bariatric Surgery
In 1998 - 2005, bariatric surgeries for women aged 18 - 45 increased 800%. Women accounted for 83% of weight loss surgeries. Women who undergo bariatric surgery during child-bearing years are advised to use contraception for 12 to 24 months after having bariatric surgery.
It is recommended for women who want to become pregnant to wait at least one to two years after bariatric surgery for weight loss to stabilize.
