Was my left ovary removed during my etpoic pregnancy? I know my fallopian tube was removed. Also can the fallopian tube grow back? Is it possible

Was my left ovary removed during my etpoic pregnancy? I know my fallopian tube was removed. Also can the fallopian tube grow back? Is it possible

They don't grow back: The ectopic pregnancy that was removed during surgery was likely on or very close to both your ovary and the tube, so both were removed. The tube will not grow back. However, the ovary and tube on the other side are unaffacted, and if you desire pregnancy they should work fine so long as they're healthy. ...Read more

Had a etopic pregnancy in 2013, with my ex partner. they removed my right fallopian tube and ovary during my surgery. why am I not getting pregnant> ?

Many reasons possibl: Well, for one, you only have half the chance of getting pregnant with only one remaining tube and ovary. Many times an ectopic is caused by other diseases in the tube which cause blockage or scarring. Your new partner may also have a problem with his sperm. The best test for you is a hysterosalpingogram and for him is a semen analysis ...Read more

I am 26 years old on birth control only one ovary i had un protected sex during my last period and have now missed my period 3 negative pregnancy test?

Likely not pregnant: Pregnancy tests are quite accurate. Since you are on birth-control and the test was negative, odds are, you aren't pregnant. There are many other causes of a missed period besides pregnancy. For example, sometimes your birth control, stress or dieting can make you miss periods. To be on the safe side, repeat the pregnancy test in about a week. Best wishes! ...Read more

What happened to ovaries during pregnancy? Whethr they ovulate?What is their function during pregnancy time?

Sleepy time 4 eggs.: Your ovaries are minimally hormonally active during pregnancy after the first trimester when the placenta takes over the production of estrogen and Progesterone from the corpus luteum.
