Ovarian reserve refers to the term used to describe the number of good quality oocytes left within a woman's ovaries. Salpingectomy undermines the ovarian reserve since it interrupts the ovarian blood supply.

Patients and method

A case-control study conducted in Baghdad teaching hospital from the 1st March 2015 to the 1st March 2016 in which a total of one hundred women were included in this study and divided into two groups (every 50 women), cases with a history of salpingectomy and the control.

The aim of the study

To assess the effect of salpingectomy for tubal pregnancy on biochemical ovarian reserve tests (FSH, AMH, and Inhibin B hormone).


Mean age of the women was 27.8 ± 3.5 years in salpingectomy group. FSH level in salpingectomy group was significantly higher than that in controls (7.9 ± 1.4 vs. 7.3 ± 1.2 mIU/mL, respectively). AMH (4.4 ± 1.0 vs. 7.6 ± 3.6) and inhibin B (309.5 ± 208.8 vs. 414.1 ± 288.9) was significantly lower in salpingectomy group than controls.


Salpingectomy is associated with decreased AMH and inhibin B levels while it associated with increased FSH level. These results suggest that salpingectomy associated with decreased ovarian reserve.
