Can a woman have normal chances to have a baby if she only has one fallopian tube?

Can a woman have normal chances to have a baby if she only has one fallopian tube?

Yes: Yes, a woman can have a normal chance 2 conceive with 1 fallopian tube. U only need 1good functional tube to get pregnant. If all other factors are normal (no medical problems, no ovarian disfunction, etc) u have a 50/50 chance of ovulating from either ovary monthly. U can ovulate from one ovary and the egg can enter the opposite tube! It's amazing! So keep trying. See your md if u have problems.

Is it normal to have cramping on my right side where my fallopian tube was removed several months ago?

Is it normal to have cramping on my right side where my fallopian tube was removed several months ago?

Tube removal: Removal of the tube can cause adhesions of connective tissue on the side of the surgery. Stretching this with movement causes the pain. On the other hand, an ovarian cyst (tumor) can cause severe pain and is common after removal of the tube due to lower blood supply to the ovary. Consult your healthcare provider for an exam and a sonogram to check for cysts.

I have found an internal lump about the size of a pea. I think it is in my fallopian tubes or around that area. It isn't painful. What could it be?

Lymph node: It is most likely a swollen lymph node (from the superficial inguinal or external iliac chain). You would not be able to feel your fallopian tubes. Lymph nodes are drainage channels for the immune system and at your age, swollen nodes are very common and not something to worry about.

Pregnancy test: I will still do a pregnancy tests to make sure, because sometimes tubal ligation also fails but if that test is negative, I will not worry about it

2/26 Fallopian Tubes removed. Still have bllod. In my urine on and off and when I stand up it feels like a sharp shooting pain/tearing. Is this normal?

2/26 Fallopian Tubes removed. Still have bllod. In my urine on and off and when I stand up it feels like a sharp shooting pain/tearing. Is this normal?

Not normal: It's definitely not normal to have blood in your urine after this kind of operation, and this may be a sign of a urinary infection, or other problem. You do need to see your doctor, there are many possibilities that depend on your past history, the reason for the previous surgery, and more.

My HSG was normal but on closer inspection it looks like my l fallopian tube was bent ~90 degrees in middle. Could this be the cause of my infertility?

My HSG was normal but on closer inspection it looks like my l fallopian tube was bent ~90 degrees in middle. Could this be the cause of my infertility?

Probably not: The fallopian tubes can take tortuous courses and as long as the tube is patent and there are no strictures or visual abnormalities to the radiologist there should not be a tubal issue detectable by hsg.

4 weeks past right ovary and fallopian tube removal. Feeling a painful tear sensation inside during random movements and getting worse. Is this normal?

4 weeks past right ovary and fallopian tube removal. Feeling a painful tear sensation inside during random movements and getting worse. Is this normal?

Possibly: Given during movements, it's just probably related to the muscle and wall where the surgery was. If there are any issues, then get checked out such as pain all the time or pain that is worsening. At 4 weeks, you should be seeing improvements from here on.

Swollen fallopian tube. My doctor told me it could be random swelling that will resolve on its own. He didn't do any tests. Is this normal?

Swollen fallopian tube. My doctor told me it could be random swelling that will resolve on its own. He didn't do any tests. Is this normal?

How diagnosed?: It is not clear what is meant by the term “swollen tube.” You may be referring to a hydrosalpinx that could have been seen on sonogram. This could be further evaluate by surgical removal, hysterosalpingogram or reevaluation in a few months depending on the clinical circumstances. “Swollen tube” could refer to pelvic inflammatory disorder. If so STD testing & antibiotics are needed

Surgey 7 months ago says fallopian tubes open. With fertility drugs still having trouble getting preg. Should I repeat HSG if previous was normal?

Good idea: You can talk this over with your fertility doc who may have other suggestions; I recommend to my patients if no pregnancy in 6 months after tubal surgery it's a good time to recheck with hsg.

Normal report: Appears that both fallopian tubes are open. That is a normal report. The dr. That ordered the test will discuss all your findings with you.

After both fallopian tubes were removed I noticed normal periods and my flow has been getting lighter. Is this normal?

After both fallopian tubes were removed I noticed normal periods and my flow has been getting lighter. Is this normal?

Maybe: If you are in childbearing age, the removal of both tubes should not affected your periods unless your blood supply affected by your surgery somewhat and periods changes mostly influenced by your age, BMI and other health status especially endocrine abnormality. Anyway you should be glad flow is lighter and regular but if you think of fertility then your only chance of successful rate is by IVF.

Hsg test results impression:no spillage of contrast into the pelvis from the otherwise unremarkable-appearing bilateral fallopian tubes. What's it mean?

Hsg test results impression:no spillage of contrast into the pelvis from the otherwise unremarkable-appearing bilateral fallopian tubes. What's it mean?

Not normal: A normal hsg shows free spillage of contrast from both tubes into the peritoneal cavity. No spill means the tubes are blocked somehow. If the tubes are blocked, the egg cannot travel down the tube to be fertilized by sperm and become an embryo (and the woman becoming pregnant).
