A 29-year-old female asked:
is it possible to conceive if you have had a laparoscopy procedure and the doctor said you have fluid in both tubes which some was removed?

Depends: Sounds like you have bilateral hydrosalpinges (bilateral dilated and blocked tubes) typically draining the fluid does not fix the tubes. Even if the tubes were repaired by opening the ends and fixing the adhesions, pregnancy rates are only 20% in patients with repaired tubes (does not sound like your tubes were fixed). Most fertility doctors would recommend ivf for hydrosalpinges.

Yes: Your fertility may have been improved by the surgery.
