Nice work blue - you're a jem. I'm now flying the blinkie proudly on my sig.
Puppymom - I *think* I can tell which side I o - from, and has been alt months until my surgery when I o-ed twice in a row on the right (good side). I think this month will be left, but gives me some time to get sorted with acupuncture to hopefully get a sticky one soon.
Love the signature, I'll see if I can get it when I go on thepc later. I'm just in the last week of my tww I really do t think the clomid has work this month had loads of ov pain on my right side as usual u fortunatly that's the side my tube was sealed I didn't really get a +ve on theopk's either so i really this I am looking for a miracle this month. Doing 100 mg of clomid next month then I really want the surgery to remove the adhesions. Oliveoyl do u know any thing about thesuccess of this surgery and how lo g do u think I should try for after it b4 ivf , I am 36 in jan btw. ThAnks and fingers crossed we DO get another BFP on our teM this month go girls x
Hoping your TWW has a great big BFP at the end of it. Sorry you think you o-ed on the not so great side. There's still hope though!
I am not quite clear on why your tube is blocked. Was your tube removed due to your ectopic? Have you been diagnosed with hydrosalpinx (where your tube is dilated and fluid filled)?? Have you had a HSG to check for tubal patency?
I have only researched outcomes for hydrosalpinx, and that is very promising if only one one side - although small study, one study of ~20 women showed 88% were pg within a year, with an average of three months TTC post surgery.
Oliveoyl I had an ectopic that ruptured 10 weeks I was told I had lost my ovary and tube as they were welded together with the ectopic. I have since found out my ovary was suchured and my tube sealed I think if that's what they do ? I had a lap and dye, dye went thru left tube ok and was told they thought some passed thru my right? But because of my previous c/s and laparotomy I hAve extentive adhesions, scars they couldn't find mt tubes everything is tied down including my womb they said I have poor mobility? Ivf was suggested.
I have had my left tube removed due to ectopic that was discovered at 12 weeks. I didnt even know i was pregnant untill the day before i had the scan, as i had a coulple of days of dizzy spells and went to docs and they did a pregnancy test which was positive and they did a scan the next day to found out how far along i was. It was a shock to discover i was 12 weeks and that it was ectopic. Was told after that my right tube was damaged and that IVF was my only option. Well 6 years later i have had 4 pregnancies, all ending in MC tho. I had a HSG done and it showed that my right tube was working, so no need for IVF but now i need testing to see why i keep having MC's. I will get there one day, i just know it!!!
Oneday - I can relate - having had LOTS of abdominal surgeries, I have some pretty impressive adhesions. I don't know how they affect fertility (or if they do) but my surgery to remove the tube was made very difficult due to the adhesions, and I had a 90% chance of having to have open surgery. Luckily they did it - but I had a colorectal surgeon helping the fertility specialist as they have a lot more experience with doing laparsopic surgery in those with 'more complicated' abdomens - may be something to ask your fertility specialist if you want to go down the surgical route. Did the dr who suggested surgery to treat your adhesions give you any idea of their opinion of likelihood of succes? You have been trying this time around for some time - what is your access to IVF like where you live? How do you feel about going down the IVF route??
welcome littlehush - I admire your positivity and hope your MC testing finds some answers for your losses.
Blue - shucks! At the moment just doing basic doctoring stuff, but would love to do obstetrics/gynae, or perhaps family doctor with an interest in womens health. Being through this TTC caper makes me realise how many drs don't really appreciate the impact of the journey, and how some don't advocate for their patients. At the moment though I think pursuing obstetrics/gynae would be too tough emotionally with our current struggles, so will wait and see how things pan out (and hoping I might need a year off for maternity leave).
