Q&A: Will the fertility procedure work after a tubal pregnancy?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

I have had surgery a few years ago for a tubal pregnancy and the doctor told me that I can still get pregnant but it would take more work and I have only my left ovari and left tube so is the fertility procedure going to work

Chara,
 
You only need one tube and one ovary to conceive.  So as long as you are ovulating good eggs and the left tube is functional then you should be able to conceive.  You have have an increased ectopic risk in that tube also.
