isthmocele/c section scar causing Secondary Infertility


Please help! I'm so devastated and can't stop crying. I have just found out that my previous c section scar is retaining fluid and that is possibly the reason for my infertility. Research shows that it creates a hostile environment for sperm and also implantation. My Dr says that its not in a spot where a baby would implant but I'm still worried as its been 3 years of ttc and one ectopic pregnancy. It seems like it can also cause ivf to fail. We can only afford to do ivf once and therefore I cannot have something like this to cause it to fail. I don't know what to do or believe anymore and I have no more tears left. Please if anyone has had this issue and still gone on to have a successful pregnancy I would forever be greatful to hear your success story

I am just finding out after almost 2 years of ttc that I may have a c-section scar defect, or isthmocele. My friend, a sonographer, detected the fluid pouch and gave me the report to give to my RE.

I was wondering if you've heard anything about treatment/surgery since you posted 3 months ago. I'm in the same boat as you as far as about to undergo fertility treatments. Next month I'm going to start 3 rounds of IUI followed by IVF if that doesn't work. Now I'm thinking I'll be wasting my time, money, and sanity if I don't deal with this problem.

Hi
Sadly no new developments on my side. My dr's colleague saw fluid in my cervix during my 2nd iui and that is how I came to find out about the ithmocele. My actual Dr then done a scan and said its definitely an ithmocele so I had a hysteroscopy where he dilated my cervix. I had to go back in the middle of my cycle so he could evaluate the situation and decide if I need to do a repair (which he was totally against). When I went for the mid cycle scan he said the fluid was minimal and not in a place where a baby would implant and thus I don't need further surgery to repair the defect. So we are still just trying naturally but have had no luck. Still in two minds as to whether we should attempt ivf
