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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Tylenol (acetaminophen) & advil usually works but have Codeine as a back-up just in case. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
