Damaged Tubes kill eggs??

I read a post last week where a young women (24 I think) had both of her damaged tubes removed because she was told the damage produces a fluid that kills eggs.  Anyone else heard this?  I have a tube that was partially removed due to a cyst and am consider going to IVF.  Wondering if I need to have that tube completely removed before IVF?

it's called Hydrosalpinx if you want to google it.
Prior to doing IVF you will have to have a test called HSG (hysterosalpingogram)  that will determine if you have issues.  Good Luck to you.
