Hi ladies, I've never had conception issues and have always been able to fall pregnant within a month or two of saying "Let's have a baby". (Hence the large family!) I really, really wanted to have a baby in mid 2011 (our last), but my pregnancy resulted in a terrible ruptured ectopic where my right fallopian tube was removed. From then until now, I've been "trying" to fall pregnant again unsuccessfully. I did have a positive result about 8 months ago, but about a week after, the pregnancy naturally ended. I was wondering why now I can't seem to conceive and wondered if others who have experienced the removal of a tube found it difficult, or at least longer, to conceive. It's quite possible, being 42 now, that my time has simply ended. I still menstruate every month like clockwork. If I'm still getting a period, shouldn't I be at least ABLE to fall pregnant? I've already made the decision that what will be, will be - I wouldn't pursue any fertility help. But I wish I had a better understanding of why it seems the choice has been taken from me due to the ectopic. I'd appreciate your knowledge and advice / experiences. Thanks.
