Ways To Increase Fertility With Only One Fallopian Tube

If you have only one functioning fallopian tube perhaps due to blockage, find out various ways to increase fertility with only one fallopian tube.

Women with only one fallopian tube are not condemned to infertility. There is more than one way to increase fertility with only one fallopian tube and conceive. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

You can lack one fallopian tube due to various reasons, or have it blocked, but it is not necessary to have them both in order to conceive. Practically looking at the matter, having only one fallopian tube reduces your chances of getting pregnant by 50%, but technically there are ways to improve this prognostic.

Women must learn the circumstances of not having both tubes and to understand the anatomy of the reproductive system. Learning that, they will understand that only one fallopian tube doesn’t have to be the cause of infertility disorders, but can sometimes interfere with the desire of pregnancy.

However before you attempt to get pregnant, tests should be done. They will show if there are any damages at the other fallopian tube. Here are 3 steps for getting pregnant with one fallopian tube.

Consult a gynecologist or a fertility specialist

Assisted reproductive technology may be the answer since it is always better to talk to a specialist in fertility disorders when needed. The causes behind infertility may be different than you think and the missing fallopian tube may not be behind failure to conceive. A woman having a history of tubal pregnancy is more likely to repeat it and early pregnancy monitoring is strongly advised. Taking some diagnostic tests can be vital for developing a healthy pregnancy. Tubal infertility will be treated with conservative methods at first and with some more aggressive fertility treatments if this doesn’t work.

If one fallopian tube is missing or is blocked, but the other one is healthy and well-functioning, pregnancy is likely to occur naturally. If the remaining tube is also affected, more dramatic approaches will be taken. Some of these are artificial insemination and In Vitro fertilization.

Fertility drugs and supplements

These synthetic or natural fertility boosters can provide the kick start necessary to ovulate successfully and so, they can help even women with one fallopian tube to become pregnant. Some examples of treatments for fertility in women with one fallopian tube:

Fertility Cleansing – a herbal formula which cleanses the body and goes to work where needed. It creates a “clean slate” to the body helping it respond to other natural remedies better.

Fertility Enzyme Therapy – a treatment using systemic enzymes to help the body decrease inflammation, pain and reduce scar tissue build up.

Stay healthy and don’t give up

Nowadays medical science is highly advanced, practically there is a solution for almost all medical problems. So keep your body healthy as well as a healthy mental status while trying to conceive. Dealing well with the situation will help getting pregnant faster, overcoming the adverse conditions. Try to avoid self-prescribed medications, unreliable advice and keep in mind, each individual in unique, so what’s good for some women may harm you. And remember there’s always a way to increase fertility with only one Fallopian tube!

    Hi Daisy123. I can’t answer your question for you but have a different one for you… How many days / weekspost ovulation did you do a test and the results came back positive? Fingers crossed that you are having one healthy and happy pregnancy!

    Since you had tubal ligation seven years ago, you have high risks for ectopic pregnancies. Ectopic pregnancies usually occur when the embryo was implanted in the Fallopian tube, instead in the uterus. Ectopic pregnancies are considered to be unsafe, and it is best that you have a tubal reversal surgery when trying to concieve in order for you to have a safe and normal pregnancy. Giving that you don’t have enough funds, I suggest that you seek out for insurances that may help you.

    Having your ObGyn check your Fallopian tubes is quite normal, given that it is considered to be a part of your preconception check-up. Since your remaining Fallopian tube is in good condition, it would be best that you already start trying to conceive. In addition, you can improve your chances of getting pregnant by taking fertility supplements, tracking your ovulation cycles and avoiding stress.

    Since your remaining tube is still in good condition, there is still a good chance for you to get pregnant as soon as you don’t have underlying infertility issues. I do suggest that you start taking fertility supplements, tracking your ovulation dates, and increasing your sexual activity during your fertile window to improve your chances of getting pregnant soon.

    It is best that you follow your ObGyn’s prescriptions, knowing that your doctor has full knowledge about your medical history. Given that you’re already 25 years old, it would be best that you just continue taking these fertility drugs for consistent effectiveness. However; if you’re quite unsure, it would be best that you consult another doctor for a second opinion.

    Hi, I have PCOD. I had 2 unsuccessful IUIs and next cycle I got my HSG done and found that I have endometrium TB. I took 6 months medication for endo TB. In the month of March’13 I underwent hysterolaparoscopy operation for overian drilling. My doc told everything else is fine but I have my right fallopian tube blocked which she removed. She said after the operation, both my tubes are open but their shape/anatomy is not correct. Both my tubes are wavy and they are not straight. I got my 3rd IUI 15 days back and it failed. Is IVF the only option for me??? I dont want to go for IVF bcz I’m scared of birth defects

    Getting pregnant can indeed be very challenging for you, given that you have PCOD. Aside from IVF, you can as well try taking fertility supplements such as Fertibella ConceiveEasy that can help induce your ovulation and boost your body’s fertility. In fact, this fertility treatment has been considered to be effective in women with PCOS. Since your doctor gave you positive feedbacks, I also do suggest that you increase your sexual activity during your fertile window for you to improve your chances of getting pregnant.

    If you have been experiencing painful cramps then, there is a good chance that you’re having an ectopic pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the embryo was implanted in the Fallopian, and is considered to be detrimental to the lives of both the mother and unborn child. However; if you don’t experience any painful cramps then, you must be having a normal pregnancy and there is nothing much for you to worry about.

    Yes; there is still a good chance for you to get pregnant as long as your remaining Fallopian tube is in good condition. Scar tissues will only cause infertility issues if left untreated, and it is important that you have yours treated right away. I do suggest that you try hormone cleansing therapies and herbal fertility supplements such as ConceiveEasy Fertibella, Vitex and Clomid that can help boost your body’s fertility and at the same time restore your remaining Fallopian tube. In this way, you can improve your likelihood of conceiving soon.

    As long as your remaining Fallopian tube is in good condition and you don’t have any underlying infertility, there is still a good possibility for you to get pregnant. I do suggest that you regularly track your ovulation dates, start taking fertility supplements and avoid stress to help increase your likelihood of conceiving. It is also important that you increase your intake of dairy products and wild yam for you to enhance your body’s fertility.

    Since you had your tubes cut and burned 17 years ago, getting pregnant can be quite difficult for you. However; it is best that you consult your doctor for possible medical options such as In-Vitro fertilization and surgery which you can try to improve your likelihood of conceiving. As long as you don’t have any infertility issue, there is still a chance for you to conceive and it is important that you never lose patience and hope.

    I recently had a tubal reversal in Oct. 2012 and got pregnant and lost the right tube due to ectopic pregnancy on April 2013. My remaining left tube is clear confirmed by HSG and I still have my right and left ovaries. I typically always ovulate from my right, maybe from my left every 3 to 4 months. Is there any way I can increase my chances to ovulate from my left more often? Would clomid help with me producing more eggs in both ovaries? I have normal 28 day cycles and I chart and do OPK’s.

    hi, i have Pcos, plus two weeks ago i had a laparoscopy done to remove an ectopic pregnancy along with the right fallopian tube. they also removed a “balloon” sized ovarian cyst from my left ovary. the doc’s observation was that my left fallopian tube looked healthy but only time could tell if i could become pregnant with that one.

    what do you make of this. with so many things going on do you think i have a chance of getting pregnant? what can i expect now, in terms of treatment.

    Hello, I have been ttc for a little over a year and a half now, I have ovarian cysts which my obgyn said are normal as well as fibroids. In December I had a tumor removed and as a result have slight damage to my left fallopian tube. I also have super irregular periods, Has spotting in mid June and a period in March and also during my surgery in December. I started taking Fertibella August 5th and am about to start my second bottle soon. They forgot to send me my ovulation test so I am unsure about when and if I have ovulated. Still no period but I am just going to keep taking the pills. I do feel a little different for the past few days I have been cramping and have had headaches as well as nausea here and there. Someone please help.. I’m desperate!

    Hi, in 2011 I had a c-section with my daughter and once the doctors removed her. They found a large cyst that was in my right fallobilan tube… They ended up removing the whole tube and now I am thinking about getting pregnant… What are my chances? Do I only ovulate every other month ? Or how does it work ? I’m a nursing student so I understand the anatomy and structure of the reproductive system… Just haven’t studied the physiology of it yet…

    I have had 2 ectopic pregnancies, both in the right Fallopian tube, 10 years apart. After the second Time the tube was then removed. My husband and I have a son, who is three years and we have been trying for a second baby for the past year without success since the tube removal. I have attended the doctor who referred me to a consulant at the hospital where I had a dye put into my tube and it appears that I had a slight blockage in the remaining tube which she has since managed to disperse. However the past two months I have ovulated from my right ovary. Should I still be able to conceive from my right ovary without the tube?

    Thanks

I also went for blood work and the test came back that i have really low progesterone level all three times. If the clomid doesnt work for the 6th time what should I do? Whay is the ttc kit?

    Dear Doctors,
    I got my HSG result & indicates that there was no spilliage on my right fallopian tube but the left side is clear. I always get my regular period, Im 35 yrs old and trying to concieve for 1.5 years. My OB prescribed 50 mg Clomid, I started last month and did intercourse every other day. But did not get pregnant. My progesterone level on 21 day blood test is 51.40 ng/ml. I also noticed my cervical mucus was absent so I wasnt sure if I ovulate but a lot of cramping and breast tenderness the entire cycle. Do I have chance of getting pregnant with right fallopian tube being blocked with unknown reason? Any advise will be helpful!

    Hi, yesterday I found out that my right tube is blocked. I am 39 next month and have trying to conceive for over 2 years. I was advised that there is a specialist in Birmingham who can help with unblocking the tube, but was too groggy to think about asking about the reasons for the blockage. I have never been pregnant or had any stds or traumas that would account for the blockage. My husband already has a child and so we are unable to access nhs funding. I am scared that time is running out for me. Is there anything you can suggest?

    Hi, I had my son April of 2007, got pregnant again in 2008 but as of Sept. of 2008 the pregnancy ended as ectopic and had my left fallopian tube removed. A month after having my tube removed I had Mirena inserted and had it for 5 years. My DR removed it Sept. 10th and iv’e been having regular periods since but can’t get pregnant…. I understand it can take time for your body to get back into the swing of things after not having a period in 5 years, but iv’e heard so many horror stories of people not being able to conceive after Mirena but when my husband and I talked to my DR she said not to worry about and that it can take up to a year and that she recommends us waiting at least 6 months to try and conceive and we havent really waited I guess. And I just would like to know im not the only one and that i still have a chance….

    Hi” I only have one fallopian tube after having two ectopics, my right tube ruptured in the year 2000. I since had always told others the doctor says’ that my left tube was damaged also, and He said I could never concieve naturally, but I have always told people thts what the doctor said, but I believe in God and if He says so I will have a baby naturally……So that brings me to the year 2012 I became pregnant naturally no medicine no treatments’ only after living by faith for twelve years. It happened for me and my Husband was 57 at the time and I was 32……….So I’m Happy to say our baby is now 14months old and were expecting again!!……..I will say that I took prenatal vitamins daily instead of a multivitamin, and this I did daily even before I concieved……Hope this inspires Many Woman………….And just know that Jesus is the Saviour………………….
