Pregnant: You had sexual intercourse on the most risky day for pregnancy. Right in the middle of your ovulation. And you wonder what to do? You need a pregnancy test. You tested in June WAY TOO early for that test to have been valid. ...Read more

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

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

I had a salpingectomy for an ectopic in my right tube 3/15. Ovulation test pos. 4/11, period 4/25. No pos. ovulation this month & period late. Normal?

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

Did having 3 previous c-sections cause me to get an ectopic pregnancy ?

Did  having 3 previous c-sections cause me to get an ectopic pregnancy ?

Probably not.: Although cesarean sections have many adverse implications for future reproduction, increasing the risk of ectopic pregnancies is not one of them. The adhesions caused by cesarean section typically do not involve the tubes, rather the bladder. When the tubes are affected, infertility can occur, as can ectopics. I am not aware of any good data to prove a link with ectopics, though. ...Read more

Could having previous c-sections cause me now to have a ectopic pregnancy ?

Could having  previous c-sections cause me now to have a ectopic pregnancy ?

Minimal risk factor: Any pelvic surgery can increase the risk of an ectopic if any tubal damage is involved or if there are multiple adhesions (scar tissue). Like anyone else, if you have an early pregnancy and experience any pain with or without bleeding, check with your doc asap. You can also ask your doc how your tubes looked at c-section, (for peace of mind). Prior ectopic is a larger risk factor. ...Read more

Does having previous c-sections increase my chance of having an ectopic pregnancy?

No: Previous caesarean section doesn't predispose to ectopic pregnancy. However, it does increase the likelihood of subsequent c-section deliveries depending on where the initial uteran incision was made. Complications of c-sections include hemorrhage, infection, and thromboembolism, which would all have likely presented shortly after the procedure. ...Read more
