Blocked tubes

Hello everyone!

My name is Sandi and I am 36 years old from the Toronto area.  I have one son (8 months old) who has Down syndrome.  We are TTC our second child, but I have been recently told that I have blocked tubes (possibly resulted from scaring from my C-Section).  We had been referred to a fertility doctor because I have a pituitary tumour which prevents ovulation unless I take a certain medication.  I have recently started taking this medication again (Dostinex) which is how we got pregnant the first time.  Unfortunately we have not been able to conceive after 5 months of trying.  So the fertility doctor ordered a few tests, one being a HSG test, and the results say my tubes are now blocked.  I am wondering if anyone has had the same problem, because the doctor told us that if indeed my tubes are truly blocked, our only course of action is IVF.  Does anyone know if this is true?  I read on various posts that blocked tubes can be corrected with tubal surgery (but it appears this procedure is only in the USA!)  Anyone know of other alternatives here in Canada?

I am glad that there is a forum for Canadian women because when I posted this question in other forums, most women answering do not know about our medical system!  I hope that we get some more women to this group, so we can help each other out!

If anyone has any ideas, please feel free to share them!
Thanks,
Sandi

Hi Sandi,
  I have been looking around the net because I dont know much about blocked tubes. I did not find much about it however I did find a website called ** http://www.clearpassage.com
Whenever I search it Canada does come up, I have not found a location but thought you might be able to.
Hope this helps!!
**It will be a lot easier and better when more women join!

Hey Teddi,

Just found out last week, upon getting a re-test done for the HSG test, that my tubes are ABSOLUTELY FINE.... no blockage.

So, happily we are now really trying to concieve (conceive).  Yaaaa!  Wow, I don't know how this happens but I feel like I won the lottery!  I still have other battles with fertility like the pituitary tumour, but I don't feel as challenged as I did before.  Boy, I know that we should never ever take our fertility for granted, that's for sure.
