Honey if god want you to have a child you dont need no tubes with god all things can happen if he say no baby you can have everything it takes to conceive a child and you will not. I too had my tubes removed due to two extoped pregnancy I wanted kids more then anything on earth and s till do. I'm soon to be 60 in June of this year and I still dreams I have giving birth to a baby so I always heard ask and you will receive but I have beg to have one health baby I have not yet. Now look at women having kids and killing them well sister I'm trying to keep the faith see I want to give birth to my child I dont want another woman child I want to feel what it feel like to carry a baby and all see what I mean so if a child is what you to have and I mean your own child pray for it one day it may happen.

Hi Anon

Honesty is the best policy. 

None of this is your fault, it's a medical issue you had. You are worth FAR more than your reproductive capabilities. You are a decent human being with so much to offer. IVF or adoption are great options. If he loves you, he'll know that your fallopian tubes are not what makes you the woman you are. 

Tell him - be honest and practical. He should be there to support and comfort you. 

Best,

Susan

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. I can appreciate how confusing this must be.

I am no expert on this matter. However, I can tell you that the hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an X-ray test that looks at the inside of the uterus and fallopian tubes and the area around them. With a gynecologic laparoscopy, dye may be injected into your cervix area so the surgeon can view your fallopian tubes.

I can only suggest getting the opinion of a second gynecologist/obstetrician.

Regards,
Maryann

Question: I have had 3 ectopic (tubal ) pregnancies for three. Consecutive years. The first one was my left tube, the second was my right tube the third was my right tube and I was told that they removed my both tubes. Before the 3rd pregnancy I did an hsg and was told that it was successful but I still ended in that mess. I've never had any infections or stds so my Dr suggested for me to do an ivf. Is there any other option for me at all.

I had the same exact issue. I just keep hoping that my husband and I will be fortunate enough to beat the odds. I have heard spotty stories about people still having healthy pregnancies. There is a way your tube does not close after they remove it and a fertilized egg can still find its way, VERY rare, but can happen. My doctors said they have delivered healthy babies they just thought I had too much damage to be one of those. Don't give up hope and there will always be IVF!

Hello Anonymous,

I do not think you have any other option but in vitro fertilization. You have a history of three ectopic pregnancies and removal of both fallopian tubes.
