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

I am almost 45 with only 1 ovary and fallopian tube. What are my chances of getting pregnant naturally?

I am almost 45 with only 1 ovary and fallopian tube. What are my chances of getting pregnant naturally?

Fair/ partly cloudy: The conception forecast in your "neighborhood" of one tube and one ovary is " fair to partly cloudy". It isn't the reproductive structures that make it difficult at this time, but infrequent ovulation at your present age of 45. "Cloud seeding" (ovulation induction) might have worked 3 years ago (IUI or IVF), but most programs stop taking patients for that purpose past age 43. Read more

What are the chances of getting pregnant with one fallopian tube, pcos and endometriosis?

Possible but harder: Can't give a percentage because there are too many variables for an online format. One tube is probably the biggest roadblock to TTC, suggest you see an OBG or a fertility specialist on the early side. Good wishes. Read more

I've had a fallopian tube removed due to an eptopic pregnancy. Will I still ovulate every month and what are my chances of getting pregnant?

Regular Ovulation: Removing a fallopian tube due to an ectopic pregnancy will not change the way you will ovulate. The other fallopian tube may be affected though by the same entity that caused the original ectopic pregnancy. If there is scar tissue present then the chances of conception is reduced. Read more

47 years old with one ovary and fallopian tube. Fairly normal periods, do I need to worry about getting pregnant? What are the chances?

47 years old with one ovary and fallopian tube. Fairly normal periods, do I need to worry about getting pregnant? What are the chances?

Yes: You have the potential to get pregnant based on what little we know. Rough guess would be a 1 in 15 chance each month of unprotected sex. 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 have only left ovary & on the start of left fallopian tube there is 1cm fibroid. I am not getting pregnant though iam ovulating on clomid (clomiphene).Plz advice?

Talk to your doctor: If you have only one ovary and are on Clomid (clomiphene) there are obviously more issues than just a small fibroid. You need to have a more lengthy discussion with your doctor about your options. Read more

I have mild and minimal peritoneal spills in my fallopian tubes. Is that difficult to become pregnent in this condition? Is that spills removes easily?

I have mild and minimal peritoneal spills in my fallopian tubes. Is that difficult to become pregnent in this condition? Is that spills removes easily?

Your tubes are open: Spillage of contrast material or of colorful dye like methylene blue from your Fallopian tubes into your peritoneal cavity is a sign that your tubes are open and therefore that fertilization/pregnancy is possible. The amount of spillage can be quite variable and depends on the skills of the clinician, the presence or absence of tubal spasms, the health and anatomy of the tubes etc... Read more

Can I be preagnant with no fallopian tubes?

Can I be preagnant with no fallopian tubes?

No, if tubes absent: There needs to be a way for the sperm to get to the egg, and typically that's through the fallopian tubes. If the tubes have been surgically removed, this not possible. If they've been"tied" (typically cauterized/burned, which results in scarring) as with sterilization, there is a small chance an opening can develop, with risk of pregnancy that can be a normal pregnancy, or abnormal in the tube.

What to do if I had one of my fallopian tubes removed a year ago due to hydrosalpinx. Will I have problems getting pregnant?

Missing info: Can't give an answer without knowing: your age, menstrual history, medical history, other medical illnesses, your husband/partner's sperm count. If 48 years is your correct age (?) your chances are essentially zero (I'm sorry to say.) If not 48, what is your correct age? Read more

I have had both Fallopian tubes removed is it possible of getting pregnant on my own with out Ivf?

I have had both Fallopian tubes removed is it possible of getting pregnant on my own with out Ivf?

No tubes: Very doubtful. If the tubes were removed correctly there should be no connection from the uterus to the abdomen. Therefore the eggs cannot enter the uterus. Conversely the sperm cannot get to the eggs.IVF is the only option. Read more

Can scar tissue in fallopian tubes hinder any chance of getting pregnant without ivf?

Can scar tissue in fallopian tubes hinder any chance of getting pregnant without ivf?

Yes: Not only can it affect fertility, it also increases your chances of an ectopic pregnancy. Make sure your tubes are assessed, if scarred tubes are a problem or if having trouble conceiving, strongly consider in-vitro (ivf) or see an rei specialist for evaluation. Good luck & I hope it works out well for you. Read more

Hi I have avascular cystic lesion consistent with an endometrioma this will require surgery, laparoscopy with possible laparotomy to tackle this and the patency of the fallopian tubes to be checked at the same time, do I avoid getting pregnant until rem

Yes: Yes you should, because if you did get pregnant any surgical intervention had to be postponed until you deliver the baby.not knowing if the cyst is benign or malignant the wailight not be on your side. It really depends on your priority, which is more important to you, getting pregnant or knowing the nature of the cyst and to get rid of it by surgery.discuss your options with your GYN Read more

both Fallopian tubes removed, w/ hx of endo. I take bc pills to keep cycles reg. Currently on Levaquin for sinus infection. Fear getting pregnant??

both Fallopian tubes removed, w/ hx of endo. I take bc pills to keep cycles reg. Currently on Levaquin for sinus infection. Fear getting pregnant??

No risk, no worry: If your tubes indeed have been removed you are infertile and pregnancy is impossible. Your bc pills are having no effect on your chance of pregnancy and the antibiotic will make no difference either. (Anyway, antibiotic interference with hormonal contraception is greatly exaggerated. It's not quite an urban myth, but it is a very rare problem if it occurs at all.) Read more

Right fallopian tube is blocked and my gyne advised for a laparoscopy done to try to unblock it. Is this the only option for me to get pregnant?

Right fallopian tube is blocked and my gyne advised for a laparoscopy done to try to unblock it. Is this the only option for me to get pregnant?

Absolutely!: If there is a modality to unblock a fallopian tube it is only invasively. I assume that condition exists only on one side, yet of course two open tubes is better than only one. Of course the in virgo fertilization is an option if you fail to get pregnant normal way. Read more
