Can Removal Of The Fallopian Tubes Affect The Menstrual Cycle?
, if there are people who removed the left egg, the right fallopian tube removed. Do you think she can still menstruate or not?
Menstruation is a natural cycle of women with marked bleeding from the vagina from the decay of the uterine wall. Menstruation is influenced by several hormones namely GnRH, FSH, LH, estrogen, and progesterone.
Menstrual phase begins when the egg produced by the ovary / ovary is not fertilized by sperm cells, so that the thickened uterine lining to prepare for pregnancy is no longer needed. Thickening of the uterine lining will shed into menstrual blood and be influenced by the absence of estrogen and progesterone.
Shortly after menstruation is complete, the brain will produce GnRH to stimulate the pituitary gland to produce FSH. This FSH works by stimulating the ovaries to form follicles that contain eggs. Follicles that are formed will continue to grow until about 16 days until the eggs mature and are ready to be fertilized. In this phase the hormone estrogen is also produced to stimulate the thickening of the uterine lining to prepare for pregnancy.
When the egg is ripe and the LH level is maximum, the egg is released into the fallopian tubes and into the uterus to be fertilized. This released egg can last for 24 hours. In this phase, the follicles left by the egg become the corpus luteum and produce the hormones estrogen and progesterone to keep the uterine wall thick to be ready to receive a fertilized egg.
If fertilization then occurs, HCG / pregnancy hormone will be formed to keep the uterine wall from breaking down. Meanwhile, if after 24 hours the egg is not fertilized, the corpus luteum will decay and cause estrogen and progesterone levels to fall. The fall in estrogen and progesterone will cause the thickened uterine wall to decay and come out as menstrual blood. The cycle will repeat every month as above.
Thus removal of the fallopian tubes does not affect menstruation. Women whose fallopian tubes are removed can still menstruate as long as there is still a uterus and as long as the ovaries are still working properly. If the ovaries are removed next to one another, women can also menstruate. However, if both ovaries are removed without hormone replacement therapy, menstruation will be disrupted due to the absence of the ovaries that produce hormones that affect the menstrual cycle.
You can consult further with your obstetrician regarding the effects of removal of the ovaries and fallopian tubes.
