Hi Peter

I wonder if you can tell me how long it should take to conceive if you are 36 please?

We've been trying for 17 months (I had a biochemical pregnancy a couple of months ago) and all tests are normal apart from mild PID in my tubes which I think was brought about due to an abortion when I was 17 (which I really regret). Both tubes are open (the dye went through easily) and after having the lap the consultant has asked us to try for a six more months and then consider IVF - from you experience are people able to conceive with mild PID and is there any point in trying a few more months even if the tubes are completely open?

Dear Cath,

Most physicians will suggest trying for at least 2 years before considering any treatment and in your case that would seem sensible. You could consider a few cycles of artificial insemination immediately to see if that helps and then go on to IVF if it doesn't work.

I suggest that you discuss the options with your clinic at this stage so that you have time to think about the options.

Hope this helps,

Peter

Hi

Thanks for that Peter - that's really helpful

What I'm unsure about is if it's even possible to conceive with mild PID even if the tubes are fully open?

Thanks for your help
