Congenital Absence

Some women are rarely born without one fallopian tube, which is called congenital absence. For a few, one tube might have been removed due to previous ectopic pregnancy or might be removed along with ovarian cyst removal.


Eat Healthy And Exercise Daily

Stick to a well-balanced diet and exercise daily in order to maintain your blood pressure and blood sugar levels in the recommended range. Take supplements recommended by the doctor only. If you’re starting any new exercises, do it under the guidance of a fitness trainer.


Speak To Your Doctor Before Conceiving

If you are planning to become pregnant, then you will have to speak to the doctor regarding the management of these comorbidities and may require a change to antidiabetic and antihypertensive medications that would be safe during pregnancy.
