Bilaterality: The fallopian tubes, indicated by the term salpingectomy, are bilateral structures and the other side is still hooked up to an ovary, which sent an egg down to the uterus, then it was conceived.

Several possibilitie: Keep a diary of the quality of the pain and frequency and time the pain happens in relation to your menstruation. It may not be related to the salpingectomy at all. Ovarian cysts, ovulation, adhesions, and infections (including appendicitis) are just a few causes of pelvic pain. If pain becomes severe, vomiting or fever develops, go to the emergency room immediately. ...Read more

What would IVF success rates be for a 37 yr old after previous laparoscopic myomectomy and ectopic pregnancy with resulting salpingectomy?

Should not matter: Your previous surgeries should not be a factor in an ivf cycle. Success will depend on the experience of the clinic, the skill of the embryologist, quality of the ivf lab and to some extend, whether you are "reproductively young or reproductively old". At 37, you should still have good success rates at an experienced and successful ivf clinic. Good luck. ...Read more

I had a salpingectomy of right tube due to an ectopic pregnancy on monday, why are all my incisions on my left side and one is next to my belly button?

Easier access: Laparoscopic surgery is performed using long narrow instruments that work through very small incisions. Working from the opposite side gives the surgeon a better view and allows him/her to reach across your belly to remove the tube. The video camera was placed through the incision in the belly button. ...Read more

Discuss with Gyn: Information needed is the reason your right tube was removed...Ectopic? Hydrosalpinx? Torsion? Your gyn should have information regarding the health of your remaining tube, we usually assess this during surgery (was chromotubation done?). If all normal, give it time. Confirm that you ovulate, check semen analysis, & if no success in 6 months-consider an hsg to assess your remaining tube. Take care. ...Read more

Will ovulation still occur alternately after a salpingectomy or will ovulation be more likely to happen only on the side with the remaining tube?

Will ovulation still occur alternately after a salpingectomy or will ovulation be more likely to happen only on the side with the remaining tube?

Still alternate: Even after removing one tube, ovulation will continue to occur from each ovary. It will not be more likely from the ovary that still has the tube. So a woman with one tube gone but both ovaries will usually take longer to conceive, since she only has a chance to conceive when ovulation occurs in the ovary that has a tube next to it. ...Read more
