It depends on why you lost your tube. If it was because of blockage then it wouldn't really make a difference. If it's genetic then yes it can. My dr did tell me though that in alot of cases after losing a tube that when you "o" on the side missing a tube the egg will just migrate over to the other tube. In my case I haven't noticed much difference. My 1st and 3rd where suprises. My 2nd (the ectopic) took 6 months and my recent pregnancy took 3 months.

My fertility has definitely been affected, but I think more by the invasiveness of the surgeries I have had, rather than the loss of my tube itself.

I had been on birth control 10+ years. when hubby and I began ttc in 2006, I was able to get preggo with our first full month or two of trying. My first ectopic, caused the loss of my right tube. But their was no pain, no rupture, the fetus still had a heartbeat and everything. The precedure was not invasive, and the were able to use the laser. When we ttc again 2007, i had been on BC gain, I got preggo again within 2 months after discontinuing the pill. I had another ectpoic, to m surprise on the right side again. how possible w/ no tube? It was a more rare type, corneal ectopic. it ruptured, and I bleed internal for some time before the excruciating pain began. I was sure it was no ectpoic because I had no tube on my right side. I waited a whole week to go to the ER, when I got the unbearable pain again. I could have died because I lost 2 liters of blood, and they had to do a very invasive emergency surgery to remove the ruptured tube and pregnancy. After waiting the 3 months to ttc, it took another It took 4months to conceive, and then I misscarried. After the miscarriage I was told we could ttc right away, and I am now preggo again after 2 months of trying.
Much thanks to brui77 for my amazing new siggy

Hi There,

I lost my right fallopian tube in 2004 (wow, 4 years ago) due to a rupture from an ectopic pregnancy...I have since gone on to have a beautiful little girl and was pregnant last month but unfortunately had a M/C, as heartbreaking as it was it was also a relief in the fact that I DID fall pregnant again and it was our 1st month of trying! Fingers crossed it will happen again soon and bub will survive.

Thank you Heather mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for the most gorgeous siggy!!
