Hi, I think you can conceive with one patent tube also. You can go for ovulation induction with timed intercourse for 3 cycles. You can take some medicines like clomiphene for inducing ovulation and track your follicles growth by repeated ultrasound and when follicle is more than 17 to 18 mm, take injection for rupture of follicles. Be in contact with your husband for 2 to 3 days after the injection. Take progesterone for next 2 weeks after rupture is confirmed on ultrasound. Do a urine pregnancy test after that. If it doesn't work, then you can go for IUI. Talk to your doctor regarding this.

Hi, I am writing this to have a clarification on few things related to Ectopic Pregnancy. I m 23yrs old and had 1st tubal pregnancy in Dec 2009 and undergone laproscope surgery, where my left fallopian tube was ruptured and it was removed totally. It was unexpected pregnancy.I was surprised how could I conceive thought we have taken precautions(Condoms and birth control pills), It was with my Boyfriend. Due to some reasons I got aparted from my boyfriend after 2months of my surgery. Now my problem is that my parents only know this and rest of my friends and relatives know that some cyst in fallopian tube. They told like that to everyone as per doctors advice as I was unmarried. Now they are looking out for groom and to marry me within a year. I am afraid that if the person with whom I m going to get married will come to know this. Please clarify me the below doubts * Is there any chance that other doctors can know my case after diagnosing me when I conceive after marriage. * Can I use bithcontrol pills or opt any birth control measure(like copper-t), though I take them will it work in my case * How much chances are there for me, to get conceive after marriage * What is the best method to opt for birth control for my case Kindly clarify me the above and make me free out of all negative thoughts. I m really confused and depressed with all these. I not even in a position to take a decision reg my marriage.Please do the needful. Thanking you in advance.

Hello! I am a 28 year old female married and I lost both fallopian tubes after I had two ectopic pregnancys. The last one I was 3 months pregnant my hormone levels were 30, 000... I was bleeding internally for 12 hours before i realized it was something this serious. I wasn t married at the time of this. I was engaged prior when I was 22 in 2008. I had emergency surgery where they had takin my last tube. They said that the baby had attached in the tube and on the outside of the ovary. They saved both ovaries. I m married now 3 years, and we want a child more than ever but can t afford it. I am also experiencing pregnancy like symptoms. My breast have been really sore on and off for the past two months. I also, have pressure on my blatter. I just now noticed when I push on my left side the pressure is more intense feeling. Is it possible I may be pregnant or is it something else? Have you ever heard of any women getting pregnant successful? What should I do about this? Please help me understand what this may be??
