Just wanted to say hello, I'd like to join in if I may?

My name is Ros and DH & I have been together for 8 years and married for 3.  We have been ttc for 2.5 years and have been through all the usual tests - bloods & sa etc, all of which came back OK.

I was sent for a laparoscopy in Sept 2004, and unfortunately discovered that I had badly blocked Fallopian tubes and hydrosalpinges - cause unknown.  We were told that there was no way we could conceive naturally and IVF is our only option.  In October I had both tubes removed in preparation for IVF, and I have my initial consultation on 25 November (next week!).

My mood is swinging between utter excitement and complete panic, but I'm sure I'm not alone in that! :)

I'd love to join in and share my (somewhat limited) experience with you, and hear from anyone who is going through a similar experience.

I wish all of you the best, wherever you are on this journey that is ttc, and pray for positive outcomes for you all.

hi Ros,

Firstly a bid warm welcome you'l love this site you can make some real nice friends.

i wish you all the luck with you treatment!

I am now 4 weeks pregnant and my original prob;em of conveiving naturally was through blocked fallopian tubes and knotted leasons, these were unblocked in may 2003, but the hairs were so damaged in the tubes that we still couldn't conceive naturally, Anyway my profile tells the rest, I just wanted to say, i know what your going through and that it has worked for loads of people, think positive. Were all here for you during your new journey.

Take care.

Hi Ros,
I've just found out I have the same as you ....all my tests were ok, until I had a lap and dye which showed I had a hydrosalpinx of my Right tube, and a very twisted and not working left tube ! I also have to have my Right tube removed before commencing IVF. how was you're recovery from the tube removal? and did you have to wait long between diagnosis and the op?
I wish you well with your treatments
Rachel :)

Hello Emily, and thank you for your kind welcome. :)

Rachel - it's gobsmacking when you hear isn't it?  I guess I always knew something was wrong, but I suspected I had endometriosis because I've always had painful periods and spotting.  In a way, however, I'm relieved to know that there is a problem and I have a clear path - IVF or nothing.  As for the op - it's worse than the lap but not too bad.  I am lucky and have private medical insurance at work, so I was able to push it through in a month.  I had to have a laparotomy which has left me with a 5 inch scar and I was in hospital for 5 nights with a further 4 weeks off work - I go back on Monday.  As you are only having one tube removed, maybe you can have this done via lap too - I hope so. When do you find out about your next step? Best of luck.

Love
