Appendectomy increases the chance of pregnancy

Study in the journal Fertility and Sterility suggests that scientists at the University of Dundee found out the following: of the more than 76,000 women survivors appendectomy, 39% had a first pregnancy for the last 10 years. Rate for women who did not have surgery, was 28%, writes The Daily Mail.

Findings led scientists to think about the possible positive effect of surgery to remove appendicitis. Sammy surgeon Shimi stipulates: "While we definitely do not recommend to women who want to give birth, to do the operation. But it is certain that the ladies have removed appendicitis, do not worry about infertility."

Meanwhile, many patients think like after the surgery they start problems. The study also says the opposite. True, the old reports mention possible difficulties in conceiving because of injury during surgery (probably scar tissue on the fallopian tubes).
