Fallopian Tubes


If your fallopian tubes were removed or if you had a tubal ligation in the past, you cannot get pregnant naturally. You can still get pregnant with IVF because it bypasses the fallopian tube and the embryos are placed directly into the uterus.

Ectopic Risk


You don't mention how your ectopic was managed. If treated with methotrexate or salpingostomy (tube sparing surgery) you are still at risk for an ectopic & see your Doc as soon as you become pregnant. (High risk for ectopic). If your tube was removed, the scarring may still cause your pain. Ask your Doc how your remaining tube looked & don't trust it. If damaged, consider IVF or see a specialist.

Not unusual.


It is not unusual to feel pain at an area previously operated on for some time after the surgery - so in that sense your right tubal discomfort is nothing to worry about. Did they remove the right tube or just clean it up from the ectopic? Depending on the form of treatment, you are at increased risk for recurrent ectopic pregnancy in all future reproductive attempts. Take folate and see Ob/Gyn!

Yes


If you have one normal tube your fertility rate will be equal to having two tubes. But you clearly had one abnormal Fallopian tube, causing your tubal pregnancy, so there is a chance your remaining tube is abnormal as well. Notwithstanding, IVF can always get you a baby if you cannot achieve spontaneous pregnancy.

Check with surgeon


Many MD's suggest 1 to 3 months to wait, but your surgeon saw your pelvic structures and may have a different idea of a time frame, so ask him/her.

because of ectopic pregnancy 1 of my fallopian tube removed and am trying to conceive and taking 5 mg folic acid suppliment daily is it overdose?

Answered by:
Dr. Frederick Friedman
Obstetrics and Gynecology

It is excessive


For the prevention of neural tube (and maybe other birth) defects, 400 micrograms of folic acid is recommended. For individuals with a history of having an affected child, we often recommend 4milligrams (10x the usual dose.) The dose you are taking is more than recommended, but will likely not be harmful, since it is water soluble and the excess will likely be excreted.

With intervention


Pregnancy is possible with intervention like in-vitro fertilization. Fallopian tube finger-like projections capture an egg after ovulation. There it is fertilized. 5 days of wavelike motion takes it to the uterine cavity where it implants. Without tubes, chances are low for egg and sperm to meet. If fertilized it may implant anywhere. With in-vitro, fertilized eggs are placed within the uterus.

IVF


Sure. This is done via in vitro fertilization. The egg is removed surgically. After fertilization then the embryo is reimplanted into the uterus.

Time for consult


It would be reasonable to contact a fertility center & get information on their services.Your fertile eggs could be harvested,mixed with a sperm & the resulting embryo/s could be inserted into your womb. Pre-treatment of your body to make sure the womb was receptive takes special knowledge & care.
