The Fallopian tubes are one of the most vital reproductive parts of a woman. Indeed, the above organs are required for conception to take place. Ideally, the ovaries release eggs. Thereafter, eggs are sent to the Fallopian tubes, and there are supposed to stay there until there are later fertilized by male sperms. After fertilization, the embryo is sent to the uterus where it stays there and grows into a fetus waiting for delivery.
When the Fallopian tubes of a woman are either blocked or removed due to ectopic pregnancy or due to other complications, it implies that the chances of that woman to conceive will be lowered. In other words, it would be quite difficult for her to get pregnant even if she is ovulating. However, if the above has been your concern, then, worry no more since there is good news for you and hope for getting babies is still there.
Nowadays, medical science and extensive gynecological research has advanced greatly and there’re several ways by which a woman with the above condition can become pregnant. Indeed, external methods (sometimes referred to as artificial methods) are the only possible options of achieving the above objective. In most cases, a process called IVF treatment is one of the best possible options into which a woman without Fallopian tubes can have a baby.
As stated in the previous section, IVF is the only normal procedure that is done if conception is to take place without Fallopian tubes. The process starts by harvesting eggs from the ovaries after ovulation. In most cases, the collected eggs are frozen and stored in a safe bank for fertilization to take place in a later date. Thereafter, sperms (with strong sperm count) are collected from the spouse, frozen, and stored safely in the sperms-bank for later fertilization. Fertilization is scheduled to take place 10 to 14 days after ovulation, which is a similar case of natural pregnancy. At this stage and time, collected eggs and sperms are brought for fertilization. Thereafter, the fertilized egg is implanted into the woman’s uterus. After implantation, it usually takes about two to three weeks before gynecologist confirms pregnancy by conducting a series of ultrasound scan and test that detects the presence of a fetus in the woman’s uterus.
Conception without Fallopian tubes is not only challenging, but it is also quite expensive. It is challenging in the sense that even after following the right and competent procedures, many women have failed to conceive. However, the goods is that the above procedure has worked well with other women.
