Wow what a shock. Made a permanent decision not to have more babies. I am 36 and my kids are going to school. I am seven weeks pregnant.

I was sterilised 17 October 2012 by dr reinarda van Waart, Durbanville.

She removed my marinaear;ier tjhis year, as it was not working for me.
I really liked her. But am looking for a new gine after what happened.

The female doctors in Panorama does not take new patients, any suggestions?

Hi Michael@1,

Welcome to moomie.

I can just imagine your shock! An unplanned pregnancy can be really difficult to digest. I have read that there is less than 1% failure rate for sterilisation...I can think that you feel very unlucky. I have also read that it doesn't mean that the doctor is to blame for the failure, unfortunenately these things happen. None the less I can really understand that you feel angry!

If you have strong feelings of not wanting the baby I would suggest speaking to a psychologist since your emotional state about the unwanted pregnancy may affect your unborn child. There is a lot evidence showing that a fetus knows if they are unwanted, not that I how if this is what you are feeling.

Hi
We are keeping the baby. I would not forgive myself if I should terminate the pregnancy. It was just VERY unexpected.

I can totally imagine! When I had the mirena fitted the doctor told me that the failure rate is similiar to that of sterilisation. When I had an "unplanned" :side: ectopic pregnancy while having the mirena I was also extremely upset and shocked :ohmy:


I hope you have healthy and blessed pregnancy! xx

If you are willing to travel, I would HIGHLY recommend Dr Lizette White at Stellenbosch Medi-Clinic. She shares a practice with Dr Reinarda van Waart's brother. She is extremely professional and absolutely excellent in what she does.

Good luck.....

EDD 16 JUNE 2011
