I am 28 years old and my husband is 31. We have been TTC for a year with no luck. My GYN did a SA on my husband and everything came back good. Now my doctor has me scheduled for an HSG on the 27th. I recently reviewed his records and from his notes he suspects cervical scarring (stenosis) to be the culprit of our infertility.(I should also add the ten years we have been married we used the withdraw method for BC and not one oppps) I had a LEEP, cyro and cone biopsy at a young age for precancerous cells, well that's what I was told but from looking at his notes the doctor that did my cone biopsy and leep may have acted prematurely because his notes suggest no precancerous cells present on the cervix removed from the leep. Now I am stuck with a thin and scarred cervix. I've heard of OBs and MWs breaking up scar tissue during delivery but is there anything I can do to break it up now to help with conception? My current OB and the one prior both told me I have scarring and a very thin cervix from the first doctors work. You can feel the scarring when you touch my cervix it’s very hard even during ovulation and my menstrual. Could this be the reason I never see EWCM near ovulation?

Thank you

Hello Penny,
I moved this thread to Trying to Conceive because it is a better fit there. The Midwives forum is for midwives to talk to each other about their profession.
Good luck,

Yes. You could have had your cervical crypts damaged, causing you to not make EWCM.
