My name is Sandi and I am 36 years old from the Toronto area. I have one son (8 months old) who has Down syndrome. We are TTC our second child, but I have been recently told that I have blocked tubes (possibly resulted from scaring from my C-Section). We had been referred to a fertility doctor because I have a pituitary tumour which prevents ovulation unless I take a certain medication. I have recently started taking this medication again (Dostinex) which is how we got pregnant the first time. Unfortunately we have not been able to conceive after 5 months of trying. So the fertility doctor ordered a few tests, one being a HSG test, and the results say my tubes are now blocked. I am wondering if anyone has had the same problem, because the doctor told us that if indeed my tubes are truly blocked, our only course of action is IVF. Does anyone know if this is true? I read on various posts that blocked tubes can be corrected with tubal surgery (but it appears this procedure is only in the USA!) Anyone know of other alternatives here in Canada?
I am glad that there is a forum for Canadian women because when I posted this question in other forums, most women answering do not know about our medical system! I hope that we get some more women to this group, so we can help each other out!
If anyone has any ideas, please feel free to share them!
