Hello,I am Dr. Aren and i will help with your query.Correction or repair of the hernia should not be connected to your pregnancy.it is a simple repair which will not interfere with your ability to have a baby.Rather,getting pregnant after the repair will be safer as then the hernia will not interfere with your pregnancy in any way.

OK when they fix the hernia I know they use mesh a I thought with that being inside it wouldn't expand

One more question how long will I have to wait to get pregnant after having surgery
Expert:  Vakul Aren replied 5 months ago.

Preferably 4-6 months,you can get pregnant earlier too but this would be optimum.
