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.

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.

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.

I had my Fallopian tubes removed due to ectopic pregnancies is there any treatments for me to have babies?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Impossible: I think I would defer to your surgeon. Any answer here would be nothing more than guessing. I wish you well.

Pregnancy tests: It is not unusual to skip a period however, if you continue to be late or if you are continuously irregular, then I would contact your gynecologist for further assessment.

I took a pregnacy test and came out positive but had tubes tied over 15 years ago it this true I took a pregnacy test and came out positive but had tubes tied over 15 years ago it this true

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.

Bypass tubes: Reversal is possible but is not always successful. 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.

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.

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.

Is it harder to detect pregency with only one tube my period was suppose to come yesterday hasn't n two negitive tests?

Is it harder to detect pregency with only one tube my period was suppose to come yesterday hasn't n two negitive tests?

No: No, the test is the same. If you lost a tube because of a previous tubal or ectopic pregnancy, you need to be watched very closely for a repeat.

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

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).
