Post subject: Very sad, please help with advise if possible
Hi Ladies, a few years ago I had an abnormal growth on my right ovary and it had to be removed. The doctors advised me that I could have many babies on one ovary. That very year I got married and we start trying right away. We got pregnant and miscarried at 11 wks. I conceived 5 other times and all miscarried. Last year I had an ectopic pregnancy so I lost the tube I was conceiving from. Now I have a good ovary on one side and a tube and no ovary on the other. My doctor said that the only way to conceive is via IVF. IVF is a very costly procedure and we don't have that kind on money.(I live in the USA). It is so heartbreaking to know that I might not have kids. All my life I look forward to having children. I'm now feeling hopeless. Have anyone heard of cases where women conceive with no fallopian tubes?

I understand that. I only have a part time job (small town in the middle of nowhere) and it is the only place around here that will let me have time off to drive hours away to an RE. My husband is a police officer and in small towns they don't make an awful lot. Can I be nosy and ask if you have Cigna? I didn't think my insurance would cover any of the fertility expenses but it covers all the labs work and ultrasounds. I still have the copay of $25 but I was really shocked to see it covered anything at all. Have you doubled checked with your husband's insurance? I called ours and then had our drs office contact the insurance to double check everything. Good luck in your journey. Hopefully you will get the surprise of your life and get a BFP naturally!!

Sorry to hear about your losses. Have u looked into IVF abroad? Even with the cost of flights it could work out a lot cheaper? Can't offer any advice except suggest that you beg and borrow the money you need for IVF, you have the rest of your lives to pay off debt but at 38 not too many more years where having a baby would be viable!

After an ectopic pregnancy resulted in the removal of my right tube, I was monitored by a fertility specialist who was tracking my ovulation. My doctor said it was possible for me to fall pregnant when ovulating on the side without a tube. He gave me an internal ultrasound to confirm I was ovulating on the right side and two weeks later I fell pregnant. My left tube that remained had 'sucked up' the egg from the right ovary. I now have a healthy 5 month old baby.
