There are 2 ladies in my mama month group that also graduated from 1+.  Both got pregnant very shortly after their bad tubes were removed.

Hey! I am sorry you are going through this :(. I am one of the ladies Hopeful mentioned.  I was TTC for 2 years.  Ultrasound and HSG showed a hydrosalpinx (blocked but then filled and swollen with fluid).  Hydrosalpinges actually prevent pregnancy as the fluid has a washing effect on the uterus as well as being full of not friendly junk that can prevent implantation from the good side.


Do you know if the tube is blocked, or blocked and swollen?  I conceived my first cycle after having the tube removed!! I also used clomid to increase our chances.  So, for me, the hydro was definitely preventing pregnancy, not just making it harder.


sending you lots of positive thoughts!

lindsayandchris09: It’s good to see you back here! I’m so sorry about your HSG results. I had an ectopic pregnancy back in March 2012, and after we had been ttc for about a year with no luck I had an HSG. They said my right tube looked to be blocked with scar tissue, probably from the removal of the ectopic. I ended up getting pregnant naturally about a year later so it can definitely happen. Good luck hun I am always rooting for you!

I lost my right ovary and fallopian tube in June ’13 after a chocolate cyst tortioned the ovary and cut off the blood flow to everything on that side.  My doctor went in with the intent to try and save the tube, but told my husband during surgery that there was nothing she could do, it all had to be removed.  We’re on cycle #5 of TTC right now.  My doctor’s optomistic that everything will work out fine and it won’t take us long to get pregnant.  I’m hoping she’s right. 

I do know lots of women who have successfully gotten pregnant with healthy pregnancies with only one tube.  It can take longer, but it does happen for them. I hope that they’re able to figure things out for you!
