Iui With One Fallopian Tube
Intrauterine insemination (iui) is where fresh or frozen partner or donor sperm is prepared or 'washed' to increase the sperm quality then gently injected through your cervix after a speculum exam, like a pap smear exam. It should be painless or cause mild cramping only. Iui helps with mild to moderate sperm problems. Iui preparations should have at least 2 million moving ...Read more
How long before ovulation should an IUI be done? Is there a chance washed sperms to swim beyond Fallopian tubes?
Doctors protocol: The doctor preforming your IUI will likely have a set office protocol that he or she will want you to follow. Ideally it is done within 6-8 hours of ovulation. If IUI is being timed around a BHCG injection then typically it is done within 24-48hrs of the shot. Confirm your schedule with your treating doctor. ...Read more
I have done IUI 4 times doctors has chckd my fallopian tubes as well after laproscopy and its all. Ok doctor is saying unxplned infertility wht shld do?
It is a choice: The success of IUI is a bell shaped curve and the average is 3-4 times and up to 6 attempts. By then, if IUI is not successful, it probably will not work and you need to look at other options i.e. Ivf. Make sure that no other causes have been missed and then decide is your money and emotions better spent on 2 more iui's or switching to ivf. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Hormones by blood: An open fallopian tube is only needed for the egg to pass through. As the egg is developing in the ovary it produces hormones — estrogen and then Progesterone after ovulation. These hormones go through the bloodstream to reach the uterus and cause the lining to grow and shed in a cyclic fashion. The egg still ovulates but just gets resorbed in the abdomen. ...Read more
I have one blocked fallopian tube... I wanted to know what's the best alternative to surgery to unblock this tube?
Depends on where: Tubal blockage where the tube leaves the uterus may have little overall effect on pregnancy if the other tube is open. Blockage at the end of the tube though is very detrimental to pregnancy even from the other tube. Due to fluid moving from the blocked tube into the uterus. If that's the case, likely need some surgery to fix the problem; removal or repair via laparoscopy. ...Read more
Fallopian tube water in the left one... Can my wife still have kids please help... How will the doctors remove the water
Hydrosalpinx: A fallopian tube filled with fluid is called a hydrosalpinx. While it is still possible to get pregnant if the other tube is open, a hydrosalpinx even on one side will make it harder to get and increase the risk of miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy. Sometimes your doctor may recommend removing or repairing it. It is important to seek out the care of a fertility specialist. ...Read more
My wife was confirmed that, one of the fallopian tube was blocked when tested by hsg, can she ovulate and how do we know.
Ovulation occurs even when tubes are blocked. The ovaries take turns having the mature egg. Using ultrasound we can see which side has the mature egg. It is possible to conceive with ovulation on the blocked side by the egg crossing over.
If the tube is blocked at the far end — hydrosalpinx — this could be affecting implantation. If the hsg showed hydrosalpinx she should see a md to remove it. ...Read more
Could one Fallopian tube be partially blocked if the HSG only showed a very thin minimal release of dye? Other tube was clear showing lots of dice.
An obstruction: Would cause the tube to dilate proximal to it. However, there are other abnormalities, such as inflammation/scarring, that can cause an abnormally narrowed or irregular tube. Also, during an HSG a normal tube may spasm and look blocked or narrowed, so talk to your doc about your results. ...Read more
May not be: If the other tube is open, there should not be a need to treat it. If you are trying to conceive, the one good tube should be enough. We did tuboplasty surgery using magnification at one time to open blocked tubes but IVF has become so reliable now that it is usually preferred. A partially opened tube can increase the risk of a tubal pregnancy. Hope this helps. ...Read more

The xray technician mentioned one Fallopian tube was abnormal, like a hook, after a HSG,. What does this mean?
In general: A tech shouldn't comment on an unsupervised study — for exactly this reason. The patient worries and seeks information even further outside — when the responsible physician is the one who should answer the concern. As a fertility specialist for 20+ years I have personally done over 2000 HSG and there is no specific meaning to the word "hook." Do the right thing, be patient, ask your doctor. ...Read more
I have been feeling a stitch like pain in my fallopian tube area on and off for the past year, and I only bleed on one side of the tampon?
Fallopian tubes: The anatomy of your Fallopian tubes can be visualized by a histosalpingogram. They inject dye thru your cervix into your uterus and then into the tubes which are then seen on X-Ray. The bleeding on one side could be due to a bifid uterus. Speak to your OB. ...Read more
Hello, I am 31 yrs old and married for 4 years, one of my fallopian tube is blocked. I need information should I go for laproscopy surgery or not.?
See fertility doctor: If one tube is fine, a woman can get pregnant from that good side (similarly for a woman who has lost one ovary but has the other one). If not able to get pregnant, the fertility doctor can help. The doctor may use in -vitro fertilization to overcome tubal infertility because ivf is more cost-effective, less invasive of a procedure, and gives immediate results by placing an embryo into the uterus. ...Read more

Yes, you: Can have a normal period with one ovary and one fallopian tube. ...Read more
Absolutely: The tubes and ovaries are completely separate embryologic structures and therefore are independent of each other when it comes to ivf. For ivf, all you need is functioning ovaries. It also makes the point that unless necessary, you should never remove an ovary because you are removing half the number of eggs that are available for ivf recovery. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Variable: One blocked fallopian tube can be caused by disease that affected the other tube. In that case then the success rate may be low. If you had a tubal reversal but only one tube reversed then the success rate is the same as two tubes. So as you can see the success rates can be highly variable. Get a complete evaluation and review options with your doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more
I have only two ovaries and one fallopian tube. I would like to know the best way for me to conceive. We have been trying for a year now. Am 36?
Time for consultatn: A better answer would come from an obgyn who knows your history and present health. If you lost one tube, there may be a reason the other does not work well. Testing might give you a clue, and if that is the case, direct implantation after ivf may be your best option. There may be issues with your spouse that deserve a review as well. ...Read more
If one of my fallopian tubes are swollen is it a gurantee the other will get swollen? I don't have stds.
