Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I have had 2 ectopic pregnancies, removal of my left tube, still have the right tube. I am so afraid to try again, what can I do?

I have had 2 ectopic pregnancies, removal of my left tube, still have the right tube. I am so afraid to try again, what can I do?

3rd time a charm?: The 3rd time may result in another ectopic pregnancy or not because the conditions that created the obstructions in the tube such as infection/adhesions may also be present in the remaining tube to keep the fertilized ovum from making it to the uterus to implant. Have your GYN consider an antibiotic if he/she suspects infection and treat conditions like endometriosis as needed if present. ...Read more

I have had 2 ectopic pregnancies in a year in a half am I just going to keep having them lost right tube second one got the shot should I stop trying?

Probably not: Much depends on your remaining tube. If it is open and healthy your risk of another tubal pregnancy is increased (around 10%) but not horribly so. Another strategy to conider would be ivf which would decrease the risk even more. ...Read more

I keep conceiving tubal pregnancies. I had 2 so far and one was a tubal premovel. I have 1 tube left an I am trying to have a baby. Who can help.

DID they say: Your remaining tube is normal? Because if you have not had it tested either by hsg or laparoscopy with dye injection, you should not try to get preg, cause you could end up with another tubal pregnancy, if the remaining tube is not normal you most likely are better off having it removed if it cannot be adequately fixed, and do in vitro, it does no good as u know to keep having tubal pregnancies. ...Read more

Bypass tubes: The cost may still be an issue but a fertility center can harvest some of your eggs and fertilize them with dads sperm. The resulting combo can be placed in your womb at the appropriate time after your body has been prepared to receive the embryos. ...Read more

Tubes tied PG?: 35 F had tubes tied 7 years ago. Sick and craving ice like prev pregnancies asks if I can be pregnant?
The answer is yes. Tying the tubes is very effective but not 100%. So would get pregnancy test if you have been exposed to vaginal sex with a man's penis in your vagina. ...Read more

If you stop smoking can your fallopian tubes heal and undo blockage? I have had 3 etopic pregnancies none ruptured. Have both tubes still.

If you stop smoking can your fallopian tubes heal and undo blockage? I have had 3 etopic pregnancies none ruptured. Have both tubes still.

It is Doubtful: Stopping smoking would benefit your health in many, many ways. Unfortunately, once fallopian tubes become narrowed or blocked by inflammation or scar tissue, this will probably not change just because you stopped smoking. ...Read more

Can u have a normal preganancy after having tubes burned for 9 years then getting preganant?

Can u have a normal preganancy after having tubes burned for 9 years then getting preganant?

Depends: ...On what you mean by "normal pregnancy." if you have a pregnancy in the uterus, then the "burned" tubes will not affect your pregnancy.
Achieving a pregnancy after that procedure is rare.
If you have a positive pregnancy test you should be evaluated right away for a possible ectopic (e.g. Tubal) pregnancy. ...Read more

Even: Even though a tubal ligation is considered a permanent form of birth control, there is still about a 0.5% chance that a woman could still get pregnant. Occasionally a fallopian tube will reform or reconnect allowing a pregnancy to happen. Since about 12% of these post-tubal ligation pregnancies can be ectopic (meaning that the pregnancy implants into the fallopian tube instead of the uterus which is a surgical emergency) you should see your ob/gyne right away. ...Read more

I had my tubes burned 9 years ago had a misscarriage 2 weeks ago can I get preganant again with normal preganancy could my tubes be fixed?

Pregnancy: A miscarriage after a tubal ligation is a possible indication that one end of the fallopian tube is not scarred closed. Whether you would be able to proceed with a normal pregnancy is unknown. There is a radiologic procedure known as a hysterosalpingogram that would allow a better evaluation of the remaining tubal structure. ...Read more

Had tubal reversal tubes back together dr said length tubes were short but good flow chances of pregnacy 35 yr old healthy female ovulation on top?

How long?: Your chances depend on many things besides tubes, but if you were normally fertile before the ligation let's assume you still are. The chance of pregnancy goes down as the tubes get shorter. How long are your tubes? Studies show that with a tubal length of 4 cm or less, pregnancy rates are zero. ...Read more

I had my tubes only burned 9 years ago had miscarriage last month can I get preganant again and have a normal preganancy?

Unlikely but possibl: There is a very small chance of having a normal, spontaneous pregnancy that ends up in the uterus, but it's unlikely. If you have regrets about the tubal, you can see an ifertility specialist about ivf for pregnancy (or possibly a tubal reversal, but I would recommend ivf over the surgery). ...Read more

Unable to conceicve. Trying from last 6 months after my ectopic pregnency. Lost right fallopian tubes. Need some helpful tips.

Unable to conceicve. Trying from last 6 months after my ectopic pregnency. Lost right fallopian tubes. Need some helpful tips.

Might need testing.: It is certainly possible to get pregnant with only one tube. An ectopic pregnancy can result from damaged tubes. It is possible that the other tube is also damaged. Difficulty conceiving can be from tubal factors, not ovulating, low sperm count and other reasons. You may consider discussing a work up with your doctor. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I had a history of an ectpoic pregnany which resulted in them having to remove my tubes and ovaries on my right side. What are the chances in ttc?

As long as you have: 1 normal tube, you should be able to get pregnant, but it depends what shape that tube is in, you now have a 1 out of 10 chance for another ectopic as opposed to 1 out of 100 for the normal person with no previous ectopic, if you were my pt. I would recommend an hsg if you do not have a history of pid because if the hsg shows normal flow u ahve a good chance if it doesn't then u are more at risk. ...Read more

I had an ectopic pragnany and my right tube has been removed but nw is 2day I feel like somethi is moving in my left fellopian tube and im not pregnan?

Rule out pregnancy: A patient with history of previous ectopic pregnancy with complaint of something moving. The risk of ectopic pregnancy if higher in those who had previous ectopic and should require evaluation. The evaluation should include serum pregnancy test and a pelvic ultrasound to rule out ectopic and for reassurance.
Goodluck. ...Read more

What does it mean when an ultrasound show a gestation sac and your tubes has been tied for 10 years.

What does it mean when an ultrasound show a gestation sac and your tubes has been tied for 10 years.

Pregnancy: I can't comment on the viability of this pregnancy but if there's a gestational sac on ultrasound then you're pregnant and your tubes are definitely not tied anymore. It may have been working long ago, but there's always the 0.5% risk of failure. See a doctor to discuss your options for managing this pregnancy. ...Read more

I had my tubes burned 9 years ago, had a miscarriage 2 weeks ago, what's the odds of me getting preganant again and having a normal preganancy?

Could be ectopic...: Odds are about 1/250 of conceiving after tubal, but when fertilization occurs it is much higher chance of being ectopic (stuck in the fallopian tube), which can be very dangerous -and can seem like a miscarriage at first, you need to have hormone levels followed and sonograms done to check for ectopic pregnancy, this is a potentially very dangerous condition. ...Read more

I had my tubes burned 9 and half years ago just had miscarriage 2 weeks ago is it possible for me to be preganant again and it be normal preganancy?

If you just had a: A miscarriage 2 weeks ago, it is most likely too soon for you to have ovulated again, but possible, the next time it could end up in your tube because the inside of the tube may not be normal so more chance to end up in the tube or could go to the uterus. If you desire no fertility, tubes need to be redone, u may be a candidate for in office essure tubal or if not then thru the laparocope. ...Read more
