    I actually have been posting at, but I will give it a try here to see who is going thru what I am going thru.[br>[br>It all started back in Sept 30, 2009 when i had my tubual ligation reversal done. It was a success, so we thought when i got pregnant two months after the surgery, but just one week after finding out I was pregnancy, I missed carried. I don't know the cause and it still bothers me.[br>[br>After a year of trying on my own I returned to my Gyn who did the surgery and started Clomid (6 rounds). Yeah it helped with ovulation but no baby. We did an hsg and how out that only one side is open...[br>[br>This is the third year of trying to conceive, I am finally calling it quits, the gyn said no more drugs, no IUI ( wont work with one). I have been told that my only chance of conceiving is to have an IVF done, which I can't afford. [br>[br>I would like to know if it is possible to get pregnant and if i should she a fertility specialist?

    David K Walmer, MD, PhD responded:
    There are many factors that can decrease your chances of getting pregnant and both infertility and miscarriages are more common as you get older. Many women who decide to have their tubal ligation reversed are getting older when they make this decision and are not aware that their fertility may not be as good as it was when they had their tubes "tied". If you go to see a fertility specialist for a consultation, you will at least learn what your options are from the perspective of your age, etc. Good luck.
