Blocked Tubes and pregnancy
1 Replies
Pirateswife - August 1

I was told in March that my left tube is almost completely blocked and my right is patent and partially blocked with dialation.

Is there a chance of getting pregnant without IVF, or would tubal surgery be needed or required?

Would Follistim be an option instead of surgery?

What would be my best option of treatment to acheive pregnancy?
Thank you in advance

Your best option to achieve a successful pregancy is in vitro fertilization. With damaged tubes, you are at risk for a tubal pregnancy. That is life threatening. Tubal surgery may open your tubes, but if they are still damaged, you may have a tubal pregnancy. By pass your tubes with IVF. All Follistim will do is make more eggs available, not improve your chance of getting an embryo to you uterus.
Good luck.
