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?

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

The video camera was placed through the incision in the belly button. ...Read more

Surgery effects.: Having a major surgery can certainly cause a disruption in the normal menstrual cycle. It can take a few months to get back to normal sometimes. If you don't ovulate, by the testing method that has worked for you before, for 3 or 4 months, follow-up with your doc. Also, ask your doc about this at your next visit, too. ...Read more
