    Unhappy Having my Fallopian tubes removed

    Hi I'm 23 yrs after being unable to conceive for 9 years and many of blood test and laparoscopy I have found out I have bilateral hydrosalpinges with one tube being patent, I also have cysts on my ovaries and possible pcos. I have surgery on the 30 of April to have my tubes removed via laparoscopy being on the public wait list I recently got a letter stating that there is currently no public ivf in perth. So I am about to have my tubes removed with no garantee of when I will be seen again. I am looking into going privately. But have no idea of costs I don't have health insurance yet and this being a pre existing condition I will have to wait a year Which I do not want to have to do.
    I really would love to hear from any one that has heard of or is in a similar position to me or any one with any advice to offer

    So you have been trying to have a baby since you were 14 years old?

This is terribly heart wrenching for me to go through I came on here thinking I'd find somewhere to talk and people who would understand or sympathise with my situation

    Hydrosalpinges can in themselves prevent you from falling pregnant and even if you didn't have the procedure and fell pregnant even with ivf, Hydrosalpinges can kill off a pregnancy.
    Im pretty sure there is public ivf through concept in subi but there's a few hoops to jump through.
    Ive had both tubes removed due to ectopics and have a dd through ivf. We have private insurance and went through Hollywood. I'd still gey them removed or seek further treatment options if you're not totally happy. Good luck

    Hi Babydream, I'm sure the posters weren't being nasty, obviously appearing to be TTC from age 14 isn't typical that's all.
    I have pcos and had both my tubes removed. 1 was a ruptured ectopic and 1 was a hydrosalpinx. While there isn't technically public ivf there are quite a few clinics linked to public hospitals that are not for profit which can make ivf more affordable. PHI often isn't much help as it generally only covers costs incurred as an inpatient which is minimal in most ivf cycles. Happy to answer any questions.

    we have a whole IVF section - and many of the girls often dont venture out into the rest of the forum, so I suggest that you post some questions and do some reading about the clinics in there

    here - http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...lay.php?64-IVF

    Best wishes

    There are lots of threads on here on IVF and you'll find lots of support.

    Public ivf clinic's aren't common and most people use private clinic's. IVF can be quite expensive so it's probably a good idea to have a look at your local clinic's to see what your options are, you do get a medicare rebate.

    You'll find lots of people on here with infertility issues who need to do IVF for various reasons. You're young in terms of fertility and that helps a lot when it comes to falling pregnant with reproductive technology. Fingers crossed you are lucky first try.
