    Default TTC with One Tube

    Hi all! I hope this is the right place to post this. I have a random question and was wondering if anyone would be able to help.

    I had my right tube removed after my first of two ectopic pregnancies. My second ectopic was then caused by the egg latching onto the "stump" of the removed tube, which as far as I believe, is still there and the risk of this happening again is quite high if I ovulate from my right side.

    So my question is.... my cycles have been a bit mixed up since my second surgery, 28 days one cycle, then 33-35 the next, then back to 28 etc. I'm wondering if this means that maybe when I ovulate from my right side it's a longer cycle? Does this sound possible or should it not make a difference?

    I just want to try and get an idea of when it's safe to TTC on my left side. We went to a fertility specialist trying to get help but they just suggested IVF when we do want to try naturally once more, but do want to try and lower the risk by only trying when I've ovulating from my left side.

    Has anyone been through something similar??

    Thanks for reading! x

    Default TTC with One Tube

    Hi there I also have one tube due to an ectopic & currently ttc, although I did conceive my last child naturally with one tube.

    I personally don't have varying cycles so not sure if that's an indicator on which side you are ov. You can request an ultrasound to see which side you will ov I'm planning to do that if I don't conceive this month.

    Good luck no one should have to suffer an ectopic it's horrible

    Hmm, that's an interesting question - I have varying cycles too and one mangled tube (which is still there but useless). I wouldn't have thought the length of your cycle would be affected by whichever side you ovulate on as it's all caused by hormones, which come from a gland in your brain... I think? Maybe someone on here is a bit more knowledgable...!

    Could you possibly go for a scan on day 9-10 of your cycle each month and see which side the dominant follicle is on?
