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

Hi Anon!

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

It's important for our readers to know that you got pregnant naturally as you still have one tube, rather than no tubes at all.

We wish you a safe and healthy delivery!

Did anyone manage to get pregnant and actually give birth without both tubes???

I had two ectopics a year apart and lost both tubes with each. Ivf was our only option , yes there is a minuscule chance that the egg could burrow into the uterus but with all the scar tissue it's highly unlikely. We went to prague for the 2nd round of IVF and it was a success. We have a beautiful daughter a year old snoring away beside me here. Never give up.

I had my tubes removed this past year in September 2015, but I been feeling nauseous every morning for the past week and half....I'm worried because I got told I wouldn't be able to have anymore kids with this surgery since I didn't want anymore...I have had five pregnancies already and my last one didn't go so well since my Lil guy came out with a lot of problems and passed away in October 2015.....he was my main reason I didn't want no more since my labor was really bad.....please help with info I'm late, nauseous and I don't know what to do

Hello Anonymous,

I am truly sorry to hear what you have gone through and can appreciate how you must be feeling.

How late? If your period is late by at least seven days, start by taking a home pregnancy test. Test in the morning by using the first urine of the day.

Depending on the results, contact your gynecologist. Please keep in touch.

In 2013 i had an etopic pregnancy which resulted in having my right tube removed the doctor told us our chances of conceiving were 50/50... in march of 2015 we found out we were expecting... in november 2015 i delivered a healthy baby girl we did not go through ivf or any fertility assistance... hope this helps

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for sharing your experience. Major point is you had a 50/50 chance of conceiving naturally because you had one (left) remaining fallopian tube.

Not sure where youre getting your info Mary but you can actually still get pregnant without tubes. The opening where the tubes connect to the uterus don't close. It is harder and very uncommon to get pregnant as the tubes pick up the ovulate egg but if the egg makes it way into the opening where the tubes once connect to the uterus it can then be fertilized and a natural and healthy pregnancy can occur. Once again it is very uncommon so if you're trying for a baby there's probably better options but don't think you're 100% covered because that's not the case.
