Abstract

To determine the effect of the removal of the tube on ovarian function we studied 52 artificial reproduction technology cycles in 26 women before and after undergoing laparoscopic salpingectomy for ectopic pregnancy. Ovarian response was measured by the duration and quantity of human menopausal gonadotrophins used in the cycle, the pre-ovulatory concentrations of oestradiol, the number of oocytes retrieved, and the quality of the embryos. All parameters were compared between cycles carried out before and after salpingectomy as well as between affected and unaffected sides. Our findings show no significant difference in any of the parameters studied. We conclude that laparoscopic salpingectomy does not abate ovarian response in artificial reproduction technology cycles that follow the procedure.
