Hello doctor,

I am a 35-year-old female. I had an ectopic pregnancy 10 years ago when I was 25 years old. I lost one fallopian tube as a result of the ectopic pregnancy. Not only am I trying to conceive again, but I am also trying to have twins or triplets. I have started taking a hyper-ovulation medication (Clomid) that will assist my ovaries in releasing more than one egg. I have just one fallopian tube, is it possible for two fertilized eggs to swim down one fallopian tube to implant in the uterus?

Kindly help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

I understand your concern. There is the possibility of releasing two eggs by one ovary and getting fertilized. There are many possibilities that we cannot predict anything right now. Right now do not panic just wait for the results, once your urine pregnancy test gets positive do USG (ultrasonography) scan as early as possible to rule out ectopic pregnancy.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
