Patient discussion about oviductal

Q. She had an infection in her fallopian tubes. She is recovering now, but can she get pregnant again? My sister had a very bad pregnancy where she had lost her first child. She had an infection in her fallopian tubes. As it was an ectopic pregnancy, she had an operation where they made a small incision in the fallopian tube and removed the embryo. She was depressed for quite a while as she was looking forward to enjoying her new baby. She is recovering now, but can she get pregnant again?

A. i think that was an ectopic pregnancy. of course she can get pregnant again, although the past history of tubal pregnancy increases the risk of developing another ectopic pregnancy in the future. but don't worry, all your sister need to is always consult her health and future-pregnancy condition with her ob-gyn specialist.

i believe that what happened to your sister was non-complicated ectopic pregnancy, because the doctor was just doing the minimal invasive surgery in her fallopian tube. it still has the risks of having another ectopic one in her future pregnancy, but with a complete medical check-up and work-up, i'm sure she will just be doing well.

i just wrote a brief note about ectopic pregnancy, in case you want to read that :

bicinctores: (1) No yolk deposition (quiescent); (2) Early yolk deposition with basophilic granules present in the ooplasm; (3) Enlarged preovulatory follicles (> 4 mm); (4) Oviductal eggs.
Four stages were present in the ovarian cycle (Table 1): (1) quiescent, no yolk deposition present; (2) early yolk deposition, with basophilic yolk granules in the ooplasm; (3) enlarged ovarian follicles > 4 mm diameter; (4) oviductal eggs present in the oviducts.
A female in June contained damaged oviductal eggs which were not counted.
Four stages were present: (1) quiescent (no yolk deposition); (2) enlarged follicles > 5 mm diameter; (3) oviductal eggs or embryos; (4) oviductal eggs and yolk deposition for a subsequent clutch.
Gross pathologic classifications were designated as follows: birds presenting with ovarian tumors only (class 1), those presenting with oviductal and ovarian tumors (class 2), those with ovarian and oviductal tumors that metastasized to the gastrointestinal tract (class 3), those with ovarian and oviductal tumors that metastasized to the gastrointestinal tract and other distant organs (class 4), those with oviductal tumors only (class 5), those with oviductal tumors that metastasized to other organs with no ovarian involvement (class 6), and those with ovarian tumors that metastasized to other organs with no oviductal involvement (class 7), including birds with gastrointestinal tumors and no reproductive involvement (gastrointestinal only) and those with no tumors (normal).
Females were classified as previtellogenic (without vitellogenic follicles), vitellogenic (with yellow follicles [greater than or equal to] 2 mm in diameter), and gravid (with oviductal eggs).
In this sense, the inner surface of the oviduct, as well as the oviductal fluid have drastic effects on the aforesaid biological processes.
Enlarged follicles (> 5 mm) and/or oviductal eggs were counted.
4) In the early stages of disease before the tumor has spread, it may be possible to identify eosinophilic cytoplasmic granules of ovalbumin, which are characteristic of oviductal tumors.
In bovine oviductal fluid, there are both sulfated GAGs, including chondroitin sulfate (CS), dermatan sulfate (DS) and heparin (HP), and the non-sulfated GAG hyaluronic acid (HA) (Hileman et al.
