It is really too bad since in-vetro is SO expensive. I would love to donate to my daughter who just lost one of hers to a tubal pregnancy as well.

I had an etopic February 2008 and that tube was removed. In May 2008 I had a m/c and in July 2008 I conceived my son who is a happy and healthy 2 year old. I am currently pregnant with my 2nd child (27 weeks) and we do not want anymore children. I know how bad it hurts to loose children and have them it's a blessing from God. I too was wondering about donating I feel for any woman that wants children but is having a hard time. It emotionally takes a toll on a woman you feel helpless and that its the one thing you are supposed to be able to do that a man cant but with faith and prayer anything is possible. Please post any information about this in the future if it becomes an option!!!!!

Hello Demdar-

I believe at this time fallopian tube donation is not done. This is likely for several reasons. When you donate an organ, the person who receives it has to take anti-rejection immune-suppressing drugs, usually for the rest of her life. The surgery itself can be tricky, with reattaching nerves and blood vessels, etc.

Because we have the ability to do in-vitro fertilization, there isn't such a great need for fallopian tube donation which would carry a lot more risk. So usually if your cousin still has ovaries, they would take her eggs out, fertilize them and implant them in her uterus. If she doesn't have ovaries any longer, you or someone else could donate eggs to her for this process.

We have a page on in-vitro fertilization that you might find interesting: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/vitro-fertilization-ivf

I'm glad you asked this question! It is not one I've had before, so I learned a little something while I researched to be sure my answer was correct. Never feel weird asking a question. If you wonder about something, you can bet lots of other people do, too.

Thanks for visiting the site!

I was thinking about the same thing as I don't want any more children. However, my sister in law has just recovered from a ruptured fallopian tube which was removed after an ectopic, but I KNOW they want more children! So unfair. Thanks for your observations.
