Ok, I google the question and read lots of responses that don't make much sense, so since its 11:00 pm and I can't call my doc to get an accurate answer, hopefully some of you ladies know from your experience....
I have one tube because of an ectopic in January, I lost my right one.
The ectopic didn't destroy my right ovary where the pregnancy was, therefore it is still there and I cannot get pregnant from my right side.
Now here is where I get confused reading other things and think maybe people are confused cause common sense would make you think if you had only ONE ovary that the remaining ovary would compensate for the lost one and would ovulate every month right?
What if you have BOTH ovaries left like me, but only one tube that I can get pregnant from. Does my body know my tube is missing and compensate and ovulate monthly from my "good" side because I have a tube missing...not an ovary? I've seen many comments that suggest this and I feel like its just a misunderstanding
Im sure many of you one tubers have had the same questions and hopefully confirmed with a doctor what really goes on with this situation?!!!
Hi, I had an ectopic in Nov 2011 and had my left tube removed.
Basically you still ovulate from both sides. If you ovulate from your tubeless side your body will reabsorb the egg OR sometimes your remaining tube will 'move' to collect the egg. Your tube is not connected to the ovary, it hoovers near it.
I got pregnant the first month after having my tube removed so there is hope. I thought it was the end of the world at the time but its not. Sadly this ended in miscarriage but at least I know it got through my one remaining tube ok.
Funnily I think I have ovulated only from my good side since having the surgery but the doctors will tell you you will ovuate from both. Its a random thing, whichever ovary has the most mature egg will ovulate.
