Bilateral salpinguectomy is an operation in which both tubes are removed. The Fallopian tube is a tubular structure that comes out of the uterus and is responsible for collecting the egg that leaves the ovary at ovulation. Inside the tube
the union between egg and sperm takes place. If neither of the two tubes are present, gestation is not possible in a natural way. Therefore, in women who do not have tubes, the only technique that can be performed is IVF.
In it we perform the first phase of ovarian stimulation to have the maximum possible number of oocytes and fertilization of the eggs is performed in the laboratory, a step that is normally done in the tubes in a natural gestation. Once the embryos are obtained, the best one or ones are transferred to the uterus. Having a bilateral salpinguectomy does not decrease the probability of pregnancy with in vitro fertilization.
