    Default Tube Removal & IVF

    Hi Ladies,
    Just curious on others experiences with tube removal alongside Ivf and any success stories. I'm currently experiencing difficulties with my tubes making me infertile and need to see a light at the end of the tunnel!?

    My cousin had blocked tubes and I know she had surgery (not sure whether they were unblocked or removed) but she fell pregnant on her first IVF attempt and then 18 months later fell pregnant naturally. I hope the same happens for you, good luck .

    Hi there,
    I had a ectopic preg in feb 2006 ( fell preg naturally ) this resulted in surgery and losing my right tube. We had been trying to fall preg again ever since. In Oct 2011 we did our first round of IVF and fell preg only to find out at our first scan it was ectopic again, hence more surgery and the removal of my left tube. So now I am sitting waiting for feb to come around so we can do another cycle of ivf, my specialist assures me that ectopic pregnancy again is near impossible.

    Well I have just had a chemical pregnancy. I was on round two of Ivf as a result of severely blocked/scarred tubes. The condition is referred to as hydrospinx. A fluid leaks from the tube that causes miscarriage and makes it hard to implant. My FS said that if this cycle failed he would perform a laparoscopy and possible tube removal. I'm at the point now where I just want it done.

    I have heard that some specialists (thankfully none that I received treatment from) recommend removing blocked tubes to increase the IVF success rate. I would be extremely careful in doing this as I have just found out (due to a natural pregnancy followed by a HSG) that both my tubes are unblocked (3 years after a laparoscopy resulted in them both being declared blocked).

    The most recent fertility specialist I saw believes they must have been unblocked all along and that they don't unblock. Apparently a HSG should be (and should have been) used to confirm any laparoscopy that finds tubes as blocked. You may even consider a HSG as your first port of call - much easier. According to some random website I was reading, the laparoscopy is often preferred as it allows the specialist to do a clean up at the same time. I am, however, surprised (and annoyed) I was never told about the HSG years ago, i.e. before and after the laparoscopy.

    I do, however, like to think that perhaps my tubes were blocked and became unblocked - either due to hormones from carrying an IVF pregnancy or from (mayan) abdominal massage. The homeopath I saw says that neither of those hypotheses could be correct and is adamant that my tubes unblocked due to the thiosinaminum that he prescribed !

    I was shown to have a blocked right tube via HSG however I truly believe it was merely spasm of that tube which is common
