I am very confused at the moment. I had an ectopic pregnancy 5 years ago which saw my right fallopian tube removed through surgery. Now I find my self pregnant again and had an 8 week scan yesterday to confirm all is well. During this scan the doctor advised that the egg had been released from the Right ovary and even showed me the corpus luteum from where the egg released.
**After ovulation, if pregnancy has not occurred, the empty follicle is called the corpus luteum and it is reabsorbed into the body. If pregnancy does occur the corpus luteum produces hormones that help to maintain the pregnancy.**
The doctor also showed me the left ovary and I could see for my own eyes that there was no change to this ovary suggesting the egg definately cam from my right side. Now because I do not have a tube in my right side the only possible explination is that I have ovulated from the right ovary and somehow the egg has floated accross to the left side and traveled down the left fallopian tube.
If anyone else can offer any other explination I am all ears, but when the doctor even said she cannot understand how this happened, I left just considering myself one very lucky lady.
