I was dx'ed via HCG with 2 blocked Fallopian tubes. Failed my first IVF cycle however have 5 frozens. F/u in June for FET.

 

I've learned on this Forum that blocked tubes can make IVF very unsuccessful. Can you pls advise if this is an issue you have seen in the past? thank you

Where did you read this?? I would imagine that blockes tubes is a reason to go for ivf as there is no use for them.unless there are other medical issues related to IF i dont see why ivf wont work.

I believe Carly may be referring to the potential impact of a hydrosalpinx which can negatively affect an IVF cycle.  However, it's my understanding that not all blocked tubes have hydros (I have a dx of blocked tubes but never had any fluid mentioned).


The plural of anecdote is not data.

Yes! that is what I am referring to! thank you! Do you know how one would find out if the blocked tubes contain fluid? thank you!

Carly it would be noted in the notes from the HSG.


Two IVFs and no chromosomally normal blasts to transfer...we are done with my eggs.

Exactly. A hydrosalpinx would indicate a blockage in the far end of the tube away from the uterus and it would fill up with fluid. Sometime the blockage is close to the uterus and is not a hydrosalpinx and in those cases it should not have any effect on IVF.

Just a comment that just because a hydrosalpinx is not seen on HSG doesn't mean one is "out of the woods".

For me, I had numerous HSGs and SHGs that were fine and one that only showed a small hesitation before the fluid went through. Then a few years later it became hydrosalpinx.  So then I had that one tube removed, and then the next year, on a followup SHG my other tube was hydro so then had another surgery to remove that one.

 

However as long as you get checked close to the time of your upcoming treatment, it should be ok I would think like the doctor says.
