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.

Relax, be happy...: A normal, healthy 25 year old without fertility problems, who wants to get pregnant, should just stay relaxed, stay happy, not think too much about getting pregnant, and smile often. Nature will take care of the rest. Soon. No special activities before or after sex are needed (which means many creative activities can be done, but aren't necessary). ...Read more

I am trying to conceive..i have a 25 day cycle ..which cycle days are best to jave intercourse to conceive?

I am trying to conceive..i have a 25 day cycle ..which cycle days are best to jave intercourse to conceive?

Earlier in cycle: Since you have a shorter cycle than the typical 28 day cycle, you likely ovulate a few days earlier in your cycle than others. So I would start trying to conceive around day 10 of your cycle, that is, the 10th day after the START of your period. This could mean just a few days after you stop bleeding. Then have intercourse daily though day 14 or 15. Good luck! ...Read more

Depends!: It depends if the other tube is normal. According to Dr. Amos Grunebaum and others, your chance of another ectopic is higher than if you had not had one.

Not Much: There is no way to fix a hydrosalpinx that is open. A blocked can can sometimes be opened but it usually does not help you achieve a uterine pregnancy. The best therapy is ivf to become pregnant. But there is not really any benefit to operating on a tube that is open already. ...Read more

Infertility : An infertility evaluation should be done when couples fail to conceive after 12 months of frequent unprotected intercourse. It should also be offered to women over the age of 35. Basic evaluation should include semen analysis, assessing ovulation status by history or labs and a hysterosalpingogram to evaluate Fallopian tubes and whether there is any abnormal anatomy ...Read more

I suffered an ectopic pregnancy almost 6 months ago and lost my right tube, what are my chances of conceiving again?

Likely good: Statistically around 70% of women have a spontaneous intrauterine pregnancy following ectopic, but this is a very broad statistic.

I have had 2 miscarriages and also an ectopic pregnancy where my left tube was removed, what are the chances of me conceiving?

Well, the first: Thing to consider is whether the other tube is open. Were the miscarriages before or after the ectopic? If after, the chances are still good though it may take a bit longer, you have to ovulate on the same side of the tube which will happen 50% of the time. The miscarriages were likely bad luck and not indicative of a recurrent problem. Good luck. ...Read more

My wife, aged 28, was operated for an ectopic pregnancy 3 years back. After that, she has not been conceiving. We hadan HSG test done which came negetive. Pleasesuggest some treatment.

Negative?: After surgery for ectopic it is typical for one of the fallopian tubes to have been removed so i would be surprised if the hsg was, "negative". If the remaining tube is normal looking then there should still be the possibility of conceiving. You might also consider having your semen evaluated as well. Good luck. ...Read more

After my ectopic pregnancy, i loosed my right fallopian tube, so will it effect me every month from conceiving? Do ovaries ovulate alternately ?

Ectopic pregnancy: Ovaries normally ovulates 70% of the time on the same side. Losing a tube due to an ectopic pregnancy will decrease your chances of conception but there is still a high likelihood of conceiving. Ask your physician to determine which side you ovulate the majority of time on and possibly taking Clomid (clomiphene) will allow you to ovulate on both sides to improve your chances of conception. There is an approximate 10 to 15% chance of having another topic pregnancy. ...Read more

I had an ectopic pregnancy and i removed my right tube can i stil concieve?

Yes if allelse is ok: If your other tube is open and normal and if your ovaries, uterus and cervix are normal and there are no remaining or persistent pelvic adhesions, you "can still conceive". Do keep in mind however, that you remain at risk for another ectopic pregnancy and will need to be carefully evaluated (serial betaHCG tests and first trimester pelvic sonograms ) the next times you conceive. ...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
