New research bring some welcome news for women who have had an ectopic pregnancy.

Many women that have had a tube removed due to an ectopic pregnancy worry that when they ovulate from the opposite ovary, that these eggs may be ‘wasted’.

Latest research shows that when women conceived naturally after they have had a tube removed, a third of the resulting pregnancies were due to ovulation from the opposite ovary to their remaining tube.

This phenomenon has been known of for some time, but has now been shown that, certainly in women with only one tube, this is a reasonably common occurrence.  Read research published paper April 2013
