Hi, I wrote last week regarding my laser lap and being diagnosed with chronic PID. I now have more details and I would like to confirm some of the details with another RE so I'm clear on what is happening. Quick recap: I'm 32, FSH of 5, average weight, husband SA is normal.
I found out I have bilateral hydrosalpinges both tubes blocked with extensive adhesions around the ovaries and tubes. All adhesions were removed and the tubes were "fixed" as by the end of the surgery they were unblocked. A subsequent pelvic ultrasound a week later shows hydrosalpinx on left but right looks normal. My HSG in January 2007 was normal. My RE opted not to remove the tubes as she was not expecting to find PID.
I would appreciate your opinion on the following:
1. Is there any way I got PID in the 11 months since I had my normal HSG or do you think a normal HSG with bilaterial hydrosalpinges is just unfortunate coincedence?
2. With my tubes being "fixed" but a hydrosalpinx being viewed on u/s a week later, does this mean my left is likely re-infected?
3. My RE says if my tubes stay open (i.e. the hydrosalpinges are "fixed") on a follow up HSG, I can do IVF without having the tubes removed. If blocked - tubes come out....do you agree with this?
4. How long should I wait before a follow-up HSG? Any chance of getting pregnant naturally.
Thank you so much, I very much appreciate your responses.
