My tonsils and infertility
spaceykc posted:
Hello - we have been ttc for 5 years now. I am getting my tonsils out - I have the stones and the dr took one look and said "out they come" - we have had an unsuccessful IVF and ICSI... could the 2 be linked? Will I have a higher chance of concieving after getting my tonsils out?

No; your tonsils are not linked to your reproductive system. Having them removed will not increase your chances of conceiving afterwards.
