Hello ladies,

Ok so today is CD12 and went to U/S.My doc said all the action is on the left side.There are 3 12 sized follies on the left and 2 7 sized on the right .I don't know why the medicine is not working on the right follies.

My ? is and I hope someone can shed some light on. I googled about getting pregnent with one tube have been told that if you have a blocked fallopian tube on one side or no tube , that sometimes at ovulation the other tube can pick up the egg on the affected side and you can get pregnant. Has anyone else heard this?I guess my ? is will it be a waste to go ahead with IUI even though there aren't any good sized follies on the right and also even if I did go ahead if the left ones fertilize can it travel through the right tube.I hope my post makes sense. I feel silly posting this but I need your expert opinions

Am I hoping for the impossible?Can someone share their opinions/stories/thoughts?

not silly at all! I understand COMPLETELY!
My experience was that I lost my left tube with the 1st pg, and when I got pg the 2nd time it was from the right ovary. I alternate sides each month for ovulation, and it took 3 cycles from my right ovary to get pg, 5 cycles overall. Mine are easy to tell, my LH surge, O, and AF's are one cycle day earlier from the right ovary than they are from the left.

Personally I would not do the IUI with the follicles being on the wrong side, and would look at the next month's cycle to see if you alternate sides like most women do.

Now, if you had lost the ovary when you lost your tube, then yes your other ovary would most likely pick up the slack in production and you would ovulate each month from the remaining ovary. But having both but just one tube means your chances of pregnancy are much better when you ovulate from the ovary that has a tube. Not that it couldn't happen the other way, but those chances are much lower.

Good luck!!!

I lost my right tube due to an ectopic last year. My OB/GYN claimed that it was possible for the tube on the opposite side to grab the egg on the other side. I told my RE this and he said that it isn't probable. I am not holding my breath.

I am suprised that your doc wold recomend moving forward with IUI with ovulation not on the side of the tube. I would personally wait due to the costs associated with IUI. However, if money wasn't an issue - why not hope for the miracle and move forward.

My RE hasn't said we'll go forward with IUI,I asked him if he's going to cancel if there aren't good sized follies and he said we'll see.I have 2 more days of stimming.I have an U/S on wednesday I guess he'll take a decision then.Also my insurace covers IUI but if there's no hope I wouldn't want to go ahead with it and then go through the torture of 2WW. kwim?

Thanks to you and greenchild for your replies.

You know, the body does compensate for the loss of the tube. Those eggs don't go lost into your body, especially if there are 3. I would say, stay optimistic. Discuss the options w/ your RE b/c he will know what to recommend & don't give up quite yet. You never know, those other follies may just catch up!

But they do go "lost" in your body if your tube is blocked. They dont migrate. Im really surprised a doctor would tell someone otherwise.


I lost my tube and ovary on the left side, and was told THEN that my other side would pick up the slack, and it has. But if you are alternating ovulation (like most people do) you have a down month.

I ovulate from the right side every month, I dont have normal cycles by any means, and am suffering secondary infertility, but it has nothing to do with having lost a tube and ovary as Ive had children with just one.

Hi Aries. For me they believe my right tube may be blocked.... but my RE believes that either tube can pick up follicles from either ovary. He explained to me that the tubes float, they are not actually attached to one ovary or the other. For me he had me do the IUI both times, I had 1 follicle on each side. I had a + HPT on the first IUI but it didn't stick. 2nd IUI was a bust. We took 2 months off, once this cycle starts, we'll be doing injectables.

Good luck to you!
