    Any bloke using the withdrawal method is playing with fire and taking anybody's word that they are infertile is even riskier. I guess you are both in this now and will have a baby together to love and support and maybe even survive this blip.

    He couldn't find a cause...tested me for every STD, all negative. He couldn't give me an answer as to why it closed up.

    meredithgrey - I have not followed this up in 7 years...it was something I was going to do next year when I was going to suggest we try and get pregnant.
    I presume it is still there as I do get pain now and then on the side that had the hydrosalpinx.

    Your OBGYN for this pregnancy should hopefully follow this up.
    Have you ever had appendicitis, or any pelvic or abdominal disease? Endometriosis?
    The hydrosalpinx should not affect this pregnancy if it has implanted in the uterine cavity, but having said that I would definitely organise an early review with an OBGYN and an early transvaginal scan, as you are a candidate for an ectopic pregnancy.
    Hopefully not, and all is well...but please organise an early OBGYN review just to be sure.

    Thanks J37, I was thinking the exact same thing, that I would request an early scan to rule out ectopic pregnancy. I have had no abdominal infection or appendicitis etc, so hopefully the gods have smiled on this one.

    I am worried the hydrosalpinx is going to give me pain as I grow bigger. I'm worried it will squash and hurt. Any suggestions on this J37?
    And thanks for following this post and providing your expert advice, I really appreciate it.

    As I said, organise an early review with an OBGYN. A transvaginal ultrasound scan at 7-8 weeks' gestation (so in 3-4 weeks) will give information about the extent/condition of the hydrosalpinx, as well as a possible ectopic, and the OBGYN can then go from there.
    It has probably scarred over by now (or even possibly resolved), and will very probably be a non-issue. But only an US scan and OBGYN review can answer these questions.
    Keep us all posted

    First of all a big fat congrats! It sounds like you are excited and will be a great mum

    I don't think you or your partner can act too shocked about this. He certainly can't crack it at you. If you were using the withdrawal method (even half-arsed) then that's an attempt at contraception (a $hit one but that's another thread!)... It's a sign that you both were obviously not 100% sure of your infertility. To then let rip without using the withdrawal method is a backflip. A conscious decision to not use any contraception. So you both need to man up and accept the consequences (which you definitley are... And which hopefully your DP will).

    Congratulations again, babies are awesome! (Toddlers are a whooollleeee other story though!)

    Ok, I have to mention something here as it has become a repeated theme in a lot of people's posts...the withdrawal method and why we decided to use it.

    Of course it's unreliable, I know that. We are taught that in Dolly magazine as teens!!
    My infertility have me a big complex, I told hardly anyone about it (my ex and the doctor, precisely, that's it) and when I got together with my new fella, I just didn't know HOW to bring it up as I was embarrassed to not be a fully functioning woman. So I let him use the withdrawal method, knowing that it didn't really matter...my infertility was contraception enough. I felt that the 2 months of withdrawal was some kind of "proof" that my infertility was real, as no pregnancy resulted, which is why I then brought the mortifying subject of my infertility up. So from then on, we still withdrew during my fertile days, but went all out on the other days. It was this system that failed us (or rewarded us!), although we thought we were protected and were still attempting some degree of responsibility in our own minds.
    Keep in mind while my body obviously wasn't infertile, 7 years of telling yourself you are makes you really believe it, so we thought we were safe.

    Not a technique I'd recommend to the average fertile woman...but I had been told I was not this woman.

    Anyway, that's my story, good or bad, irresponsible or not, we thought we were safe.

    Thanks for your all your replies and well wishes. I have been congratulated by strangers I'll never meet while my loved ones don't even know! An amazing time we live in
