Just found out I have one tube open! (hsg)

Ok I went to have a HSG done today. I had a tubal reversal done May 20th. So today I found out that my right tube is closed and my left tube is open. I'm really bummed . So I was wanting to know if any of you lady's have the same problem as me and wanting to know if anyone has gotten prego with one tube open . And what did the DR do for you to enhance you getting prego. Any info would be great.

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I went for my tubal reversal in June 07 and had my HSG done in Sep 07.  At first appearances, both of my tubes were completely blocked but after further study, the Dr. determined that I had some spillage to my right ovary. Hence, I had hope of conceiving with one partially open tube.  After trying unsuccessfully for almost a year, and feeling frustrated and hopeless, my Dr. decided that (after revieving the HSG Xrays again) that the squeeze into the fallopian tube was too small so that my only hope of conceiving was to have a procedure, called Tubal Recanalization to open both my tubes up.This was our last resort before IVF, as the Dr said I had virtually no hope of getting pregnant without this procedure. I was supposed to undergo this procedure this September but could not, as I recently found out I was pregnant (without the aid of fertility drugs).  Do not give up hope because all you need is one functioning tube to conceive.  Best of luck!!!

I have not had a tubal done to need a reversal but did want to add that my SIL was born with one tube and ovary. It only takes one of each on the same side to have a baby. You only ovulate (normally) from one ovary a  month so pregnancy is very possible as long as there is no blockage. On another note she did not know this until she went to get her tubes tied and was told she only had one tube. Boy was she surprised.

Good Luck

I am not in your obat, but my best friend is 39, and just had a baby in April. Her 1st and she had PCOS as well as only one open tube. Fertility drugs assisted, they tried for 8 months, but it happened - so never give up hope !

Thanks for the information. That really makes me feel better. whoo. I go to my RE on Friday to review our options and I'm gonna bring this up. Because the RE that did the HSG on Monday said that they would'nt go back in and open that right tube. As i was laying there and he told me that ..I quickly asked him will Dr T reopen it and why not. Now it makes me wonder why he would say no. Its not that big of a procedure they run a line through the the U -to the Tube and try to unblock it. But i appreciate the info. I'll report back let you know what they said..

Wow, your story is so much like mine! I had TR in April (got preg. in June, but was ectopic) had a HSG on Sept 15 and found out my right tube is closed but left is open. I am also very bummed b/c I am 35 and so worried after the ectopic. The dr. that performed the HSG said to try for 4 more months and if not preg. by then, I should meet with my Dr. to discuss options. Anyway, good luck to both of us!!!

Hi, I would like to add, there are plenty of women on this site that has gotten pregnant with one tube being open. Tanker chic lost one of her tubes and then got pregnant and had a healthy baby boy!

I too had a TR and got pregnant right awat and then lost it to ectopic pregnancy, waited a few months and then got pregnant again. Had a baby boy in May 08! Don't give up!

Didn't your doctor run dye through your tubes during the procedure to make sure both tubes were open?

Yea he did run  the die test after the procedure and said both were open. Well thats what he said. But I had a allergic reaction to the sutures he used and had an infection. So I'm wondering if the infection caused the closed tube on my right side. I go today at pm to find out our options and to see what can we do to enhance a faster pregnancy.. lol

I only have one tube and I'm about as fertile as they come..  I've been pregnant 4x in two years .  with two losses...  I had my tube removed due to an ectopic that ruptured..   you can still get pregnant every month.  the tubes act as vacuums to pick up the egg..  they can pick up the egg from the opposite side too..  good luckk...

Wow! That's what worries me about ectopic. I only have one good tube and if that happens... That would suck. I go back today to the Drs. To discuss the test. So I'll report later and let you know what he said..Good luck too you as well.

has anyone had the surgery to unblock their tubes (recanalization, tuboplasty)
Blank
166487_tn?1351909251
I have heard of it. But Dr's are leery of it. Because it can cause more damage than whats already there. I asked about that. He told me no. You can still get prego off one. I told him I want two. He didnt want to take the risk ff infection or more scaring.

This is kind of getting me nervous. I had my tubes untied in October. I go get the HSG done on the 19th . My husband and I have been trying since the surgery..and so far nada. I re-did the blood work , had the vaginal ultrasound done. I have 11 follicles..they said that was good. But the nurse saud she thinks there may be liquid in my right ovary. Im kind of scared. Im 43 and my husband is 32.

I have had 4 m/c, the last one 2 yrs ago which was an eptopic which leaves me with both ovaries and one tube. I had a HSG done and that one tube is open!! Sometime I can feel when I'm ovulating, kinda painful but no luck getting pregnant. Really don't want to travel the path of IVF or those types of things. What could I do to increase my chances to getting pregnant. Do fertiliy watches or monitors work, how would I know if I am ovulating from the "good" side? I haven't taken any pregnancies test in the last 2 yrs only becuase if I m/c I'd rather not know. can anyone help???

I had my tubes reversed June 2011 and my husband and I have been trying every since but unfortunately nothing has happen. So I went for an HSG today December 2011 the Dr. said that the tube on the left side was open but the tube on the right side was not flowing down it looked like it was blocked. My question is how long will it take for me to become pregnant with just one tube and is there anything that I can take to hurry the process. Please reply ASAP we're not getting younger........
