Has anyone had hernia surgery? Will it affect future pregnancies?

I’m sure the advice is to wait a year after surgery to ensure your body is healed, but there’s no true evidence to back this up. I’ve met plenty of women who have had this! There is a small chance it can affect your fertility and this happens for 0.3-0.8% pregnancies.

You may be classed as a high risk pregnancy where a consultant will monitor you throughout.
