I had my fallopian tubes removed due to multiple etopic pregnancies. I still have my ovaries, so can I still get pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

No, I do not think it possible.

Conception occurs in the phallopian tube. The tubes are vital for the first two weeks of development. Sometime during week 3 to 4 the fertilized egg drops into the uterus & implantation occurs. The medical community agrees that the only way around this process is through IVF. In my case, both tubes were removed for medical reasons & the area where the phallopian tubes were attached to the uterus was cauterized. Seven years later, the cauterized area having healed, left a microscopic area opening where the phallopian tubes had once been attached. It seemed that a fertilized egg in what was belived to be the microscopic opening, subsequently dropped - attaching to the uterus. The end result was a live healthy full term baby girl. Physicians agreed this was indeed a rare occurrence & no conern for birth control was needed. Nineteen months later, I was readmitted to the same hospital where I gave birth to a live, healthy, full term baby boy. Sometime after the final birth, an unrelated event resulted in abdominal exploratory surgery confirming that the tubes had been removed years earlier, & showed evidence of previous cautherization which had healed, resulting in a microscopic opening where each phallopian tube had once existed. Interesting to note that the physician who performed the bilateral phallopian tube removal years earlier, upon being contacted by the attending obstetrician, stated that he had in fact removed both tubes & that the pregnancy confirmed that there is a 'Higher Authority' than medicine. He added, that the baby in utero was meant to be.

I really hope not. Just had my tubes removed because I have two boys and two girls and me and my husband dont want anymore, and especially after our last birth where my husband almost lost me and our son.

I told by my ivf doctor that I had hydrosalplinx, my tubes where blocked and she knew I was wanting and willing to do whatever it took to help make the ivf work bc I only had once chance. She said if I allowed her to remove my tubes it would increase the take home baby rate, oh and that their are no reason for them bc I can't get pregnant anyways with blocked tubes and that it was the only ways to get rid of the disease bc no other way to unblock tubes. Noway to unblock them, that just removing the tubes is the main and best option. I believed her. I followed her word and a lot of fucked up she happened and was told wrong info that I believed at the time bc they where the doctors they wouldn't guid me or put me threw all this just to at the end mess it up to have it all fail in the end and not think that what they tell us very emoctional and trusting women we are because we are so hormonal and wanting a baby. That they have us go threw unnecessary procedures to say is what we need and that it don't work anyways so let's remove your only way of getting pregnant naturally and leave no hope maybe working on my own sometime but has be beleiveing their is no point for them bc it's pretty much guaranteed it's going to work bc I even did the added $2000 testing on my genes to make sure my embryos won't have issues or that I don't have a the cancer gene to pass to my child bc it's high in the family. But no so I agree w them and believe them that no need even then u can't clear a blocked tube and removing it is the only way to make sure it doesn't get painful and cause future issues. Ever since the day the room my tubes, I have regretted it and wondered if maybe that was what caused it to fail bc the put my body threw that intensive invasive surgery and the right after started me on the medication and not even a month fully gave my body time to fully recover before implanting me? Bc maybe my body was still in shock bc she put me threw 3 Sergio's, 2 smaller and also 2 involved being put to sleep and one big surgie with in 3 weeks of one another and then automatically kept things quick. But anyways I did more research bc I found my folder with the images of what she took from me and etc but with me googling just my diognoses, articles headlining "7 different natural ways to try to help cure hydrosalplinx naturally" I click it and it states that having them remove your tubes is the very last thing to do bc it won't get rid of it that you still show be on mess and etc to help cure it bc it's not just a thing that blocks ur tubes but can move to your overuse and etc but can and lead to other issues if not treated but hell how can I treat myself for something I led to believe is gone once I remove these tubes that I don't need anyways? But they state the only real reason to get rid of the tubes if it turns to cancer or to just make sure you can't get pregnant naturally that you will need ivf to have a baby: I feel the tricked me and they didn't really are but rush my case and just wanted money bc hey knew my insurance was reimbursing me 100% money back after each money spent. I I am thinking about doing when one other website said is to talk to a lawyer and having everyone who was involved or me I've been there to hear things being said I could help the case can go with you and they will put a case to wards the clinic and usually they just want to settle but I am more likely Want more than money is for them agnolidge that what they are doing ripping out chances out for their own gain ruins our spirits and who we are. Bc I even lost my husband bc I couldn't move on and couldn't stop crying the first 3 or 4 nights and days and need my man to hold me but no would just sit up and say it didn't work so just get over it and move on. And he would roll over back to sleep. No it's ok babe, or I'm sorry you feel you did something wrong and caused it and that you finding out and losing the embryos that it was just fate it happens on my birthday: verification that I lost life I tryed and prayed so hard for to make me even not able to enjoy my birthday ever again bc it's a reminder. They could of been honest that their are other options to cure this and it saves my turned so let's try these options before we consider tubale removal bc theirs no going back. Was never give a possitive option or told that their are ways to cure it to try and conseve later on in life if I wanted. No. I'm permanently childless and husband and step daughter less bc I delveoped severe depression and high anxiety and even skin picking disorder for not feeling good enough. I couldn't even be around my step daughter or show her the love I always showed her for months bc I felt like she has her real mom and so don't need me and I started resenting her and my husband and drove me apart from him my best friend I lost bc I couldn't look at him w out being reminded how I pushed us to do this and told my family gave them the same hopes I had and them being taken and feeling I was robbed. Anyone else feel this way? They say what they need to get more prosecures and repeat cycles for more money and to keep money coming? We were used and stollen from! I can't stop feeling this. Anyone else and anyone from boise idaho go to idaho center of reproduction center and be told your best options is tubes removal and etc?

So I'm reading everybody posts and comments and I'm a bit confused. So I've read someone say that something about a period. Well I have both of my tubes taken out. The doctor also told me that I wouldn't be able to conceive naturally. But my question I guess am I not suppose to be having a period?

I had both tubes removed and I hoped it would help ease my periods but they have gotten worse so you should still have a period on a side note I regret it VERY badly I am 32 and I have 2 children both are boys my oldest is 13 and my other son is 3 and I would love to have another baby unfortunately I allowed my husband to convince me to have my tubes removed ... Although I guess it was for the best because if he doesn't want anymore children I would not force that on him . Also I take care of the kids mostly by myself because he works over 40 hrs a week and my children are very much attached to me and never want to be away from me ... Well anyway I realized I just went on a rant about something that does not have anything to do with the question asked but the answer to your question is you should still be having periods as long as you have your ovaries
