Can I become pragnant?

Hi all!

I had an ectopic pregnancy 3 years ago. I am 40 now. As the result now I have only right tube. I was depressed in those days, so I have never tried to become pregnant since that.

I thought that I will still be able to become a mom, but then I was diagnosed tubal obstruction.

I have already tried ivf 3 times, however there was no result, due to low egg quality.

Now I am afeared whether I can have a baby. What should I do next to conceive? Are there any prospects for me?

Thanks in advance.

If it was only due to egg quality for the failed IVF then there are things you can do to try to improve the quality of your eggs - taking coQ10 for one can potentially help. Your eggs need energy to be good, and coQ10 provides this. So it's worth trying if you haven't already.

There are other things too, but off the top of my head I can't remember, perhaps have a Google and see what you can find.

Other than this I would go back to my fertility specialist and see what they suggest


cupcakesparkles83, thank you for your advice!

I googled some information about coq10 and succinic acid, which is similar to it (mb you meant that)

. But can you tell me the difference?

I will consult a doctor and definitely take one of that .


Hi lajess. It is possible that your remaining Fallopian tube could be preventing a developing embryo from embedding in the lining of your womb. Sometimes natural fluid in the tube that can't drain normally, leaks into the womb, stopping implantation. Maybe talk to your specialist about possible surgery on the tube or clipping it before further IVF. I do hope that something can still be done to help you get pregnant. Good luck! Diane


Diane, thank you a lot for your kind respond!!


I should definitely visit my gynecologist .

I will keep you posted
