Impact Of Removal Of The Fallopian Tubes?
Hi doc, 6 weeks ago i was rushed into the emergency surgery of ectopic pregnancy. I lost portion of my left tube (3cm) from the end of the tube. Now you know, is there an ovary on his left that still functions without the fallopian tube fimbrae and it is reported that the ovary on his side also does not get blood supply from the fallopian tube and will cause the ovary on his left to become weak and unable to produce more hormones doc. And does this mean I will also cause early menopause doc, will answer doc
Removal of the fallopian tube in whole or in part, is called a salpingectomy. Most often it is caused by an ectopic pregnancy, but it can also be done due to an infection or cancer in this fallopian tube.
This salpingectomy does not affect the ovaries. The ovaries can still function as usual and of course you will also not experience early menopause.
Unless the fallopian tube is removed along with the ovary, hormonal changes will occur.
That's the explanation, hopefully it's useful
