Is it possible to have a pregnancy after a partial oophorectomy on both ovaries?

Is it possible to have a pregnancy after a partial oophorectomy on both ovaries?

Yes: If partial oophorectomy means that some ovarian tissue was not removed, then a pregnancy would be possible. Even a small part of an ovary contains hundreds of eggs, so normal menstrual cycles, ovulation, and pregnancy can occur.

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Will you go through menopause after a partial ovary removal/partial oophorectomy?

Will you go through menopause after a partial ovary removal/partial oophorectomy?

Unlikely: Assuming that you have your other ovary, removal of part or all of the second ovary will not put a woman into menopause. The remaining ovary will still produce estrogen and ovulation will occur every month from the remaining ovary. I hope this helps you!

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

I don't think so: As you may know, all of the eggs a human female will have in her lifetime are present in her ovaries at the time of her birth. The quality of them slowly degrades as she ages. Having part of the ovary removed will surely reduce the number of remaining eggs, but the quality of the remaining ones should be unchanged.

Just had a unilateral salpingo-oopherectomy done one week ago. Had a child three years ago by emergency c-section. Curious as to what are my chances of getting pregnant naturally after this procedure and when can we start trying.

Other side status: The condition of the opposite side tube and ovary will determine the answer to your question. If the Fallopian tube is patent (open) and the ovary ovulating normally, then your chances are good for another pregnancy. Your GYN MD can perform a HSG (hysterosalpingogram) test to determine Fallopian tube patency status.

I had a unilateral oophorectomy when I was four months pregnant. My first flow since is light & short, is it normal?

I had a unilateral oophorectomy when I was four months pregnant. My first flow since is light & short, is it normal?

Yes, normal: This probably has less to due with the oopherectomy and more to do with the pregnancy. The first few periods after delivery are often erratic and can be heavier or lighter than "usual." typically these work themselves out with time.

How do I take my mind off of getting pregnant so I can actually get pregnant?

Get involved/life: Get actively involved in life's events, including volunteering, church work, gardening, or a myriad of your avocational interests. Focusing only on pregnancy attempts makes it a "job" and last I checked, the physical process of getting pregnant was supposed to be "fun".

Conception steriliza: Surgery for sterilization generally means tubal ligation I donot know what was done in your case but if that is what you had surgery can be done to correct it for restoring anatomical correction always and functional correction usually if this is not feasibility clearly in vitro fertilization with eggs from your ovaries is a possibitu check a fertility specialist.

Hello, I just have 1 question. What is the youngest age I can get help getting pregnant from my gp?

Hello, I just have 1 question. What is the youngest age I can get help getting pregnant from my gp?

Ask your GP :): Your profile says you are 21 years old and live in Australia: I don't know if there are specific firm practices there regarding age, but in the US there is no "age cutoff" that's universally observed. Many GP and OB doctors, and most specialists (myself included) would talk to a young woman and go thru testing if it seemed appropriate. Good wishes.

I would like to know how to get the pill that will stop me from getting pregnant. Do I have to make an appointment at the doctors?

OCP or morning after: Do you mean emergency contraception or birth control pills? Emergency contraception ("morning after" pill) is available without a prescription; birth control pill needs prescriptions in the us.

Me and my wife have been having issue with getting pregnant. How do I know when to have intercourse with her inorder to get pregnant?

Ovulation predictor.: You may benefit from ovulation predictor kits. They can give you a warning to intensify vaginal intercourse around that time when conception is most likely. Your wife should be on Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily - good luck!

I was on nuva ring for about two months and I've been wanting to get pregnant for the past month, would being on nuva ring effect me getting pregnant?

Yes: Nuvaring is a form of contraception or birth control. As long as you continue to use it, your chances of getting pregnant are pretty low. So if you want to get pregnant, then you need to remove the ring. Make sure your doc knows that you're no longer using it. Also start taking a pre-natal vitamin to minimize risk of spinal tube defects.

I was on depo over a year ago what are my chances of getting pregnant now if the guy I was with didn't get off per say but says he can knock girls up easily?

I was on depo over a year ago what are my chances of getting pregnant now if the guy I was with didn't get off per say but says he can knock girls up easily?

Possible: If your last depo was a year ago it likely provides no protection at all. Any secretions from an erect penis have sperm and can get you pregnant whether he "gets off" or not. The pull out method is the same as no method.
