Will bariatric surgery affect my ability to get pregnant?

Bariatric surgery results in weight loss that frequently helps patients in becoming pregnant. In fact, many patients who have previously been told that they were unable have children successfully deliver a healthy child after bariatric surgery.

It is recommended to wait at least one year after your surgery before attempting to become pregnant.

If you do become pregnant, you need to be aware that you will have special dietary needs, which you will need to discuss with your obstetrician and dietitian.
