  • Your cycle will return to normal. You still ovulate, the egg just can't reach your uterus. Sorry.

  • Eventually you will have a period because your body still does release an egg and goes through the hormonal things, but the egg never reaches the uterus. It may take some time to get back to your regular cycle though.

  • You DO still ovulate, you DO still have a regular period. All a tubal does is interrupts the egg's route to the uterus.

  • normal period, sorry the lining builds up in hopes of an egg whether it gets there or not.

  • Mine got heavier. Way heavier. Sucks. But so far they are nice and regular (almost 28 days exactly) which is nice because before I got pregnant last time they were all over the place. I didn't even realize I was pregnant until I was 6 or 7 weeks because they had been so irregular I didn't even realize I had missed it (since it ended up being an early one).
