  • Well, I'll add if you have scar tissue built up around your tubes then yes, it can cause delays, but that also contributes to being at higher risk due to scarring.

  • Lots of women lose a fallopian tube to an ectopic pregnancy. If that happens you are 50% less likely to become pregnant right off the bat. Scar tissue in an existing tube also makes it difficult. Previous ectopic put you at risk for having another. If you want a child do the best you can with what you've got. Eat healthy, no smoking or drinking, lots of rest, reduce your stress as much as you can. Relax. If it's meant to happen it will happen. Good Luck.
