My ONLY tube is blocked
liscas posted:

Well it seems like I have had every test under the sun this year and to find out that my one and only fallopian tube is blocked. Let me start off with saying in 1999 i lost my left ovary and December of 2010 i lost my right fallopian tube due to an ectopic pregnancy. Since then me and my DH have been trying to conceive. I went to see a specialist and I had a lap done and he said that the tube looked like it was in great shape but that the blue dye didn't drain and he wasn't sure if it didn't drain because my tube might have spasmed. So last week i has an HSG done and he told me that it was blocked and it was close to my uterus. I have an appt. with him next monday and was wondering what are my options now. I really don't want to do IVF. Has anybody ever coceived naturally after HSG and + blockage diagnosis?

LisCas, thanks for posting!

Dr. Smith replied to another member with a Blocked Tube issue, and you may find that helpful. If you have concerns after you talk to your doctor on Monday, you may want to see another doctor for a second opinion.

Well off to surgery i go! I will have surgery to have my fallopian tube opened. Hopefully we get a baby soon after the surgery.
liscas replied to liscas's response:
I had my surgery in October to unblock my tube, I hate when threads start and nobody ever finds out the outcome!
Well I am here to tell you all, I am 4 weeks and 3 days pregnant. Naturally!

I beat odds. I have one ovary and one fallopian tube opposite of each other and today i type out my outcome...please know that I prayed daily for this to happen naturally because there was no way i could afford IVF!

Ladies don't give up hope!
