I had an ectopic pregnancy 6 months ago, losing my left tube. How long does it take for my body to only releases eggs from the right/working side?

Both sides: If you still have your left ovary, you will continue to ovulate from both ovaries. Each month will be a 50% chance the egg will be released on the good side.

I have had 2 miscarriages and also an ectopic pregnancy where my left tube was removed, what are the chances of me conceiving?

Well, the first: Thing to consider is whether the other tube is open. Were the miscarriages before or after the ectopic? If after, the chances are still good though it may take a bit longer, you have to ovulate on the same side of the tube which will happen 50% of the time. The miscarriages were likely bad luck and not indicative of a recurrent problem. Good luck. ...Read more
