Unhappy infertility?

Hi everyone, I was looking for a site like this to ask for some advice to my problem. I am newly married to my husband and we’ve been trying to form a family for like 7 months now but with really bad luck; I got removed one of my tubes because it was totally blocked and it couldn’t be saved and now I just have one tube. It’s been really hard on us, we don´t want to give up but I don´t know what to do. Has someone been in a similar situation?

We had fertility problems. I would ask your gyno if he/she can refer you to a fertility specialist now. Sometimes they make you try for a whole year first, but sometimes they won't if they know there's a condition like you only having one tube.

I had completely different issues than you (PCOS, endometriosis, and a uterine septum), but once I saw a fertility specialist, I started getting results. I had to have surgery, takes lots of meds, and self-administer way too many shots, but now we have 3 kids!

Hugs to you and positive vibes!

My family makes kids YouTube videos on our channel "Modern Tom Sawyer!"

@paola , Hey Hun, *hugs* I know what you are going through, things can be pretty difficult emotionally at this point. You still have many chances to conceive naturally. Just don't give up hoping. Do you think IUI can be a good option for you. It will keep you from taking any more risks. A friend of mine had similar problem. Well, not almost similar, even worse. Doctors had to remove both her tubes. Both her pregnancies were tubal. I suggested her to give up trying for a few months and research about IUI. Her doctor believed that she could still be a mom but only through IUI. She had her treatment done abroad because it was still much expensive in the US. She is now pregnant and her baby is due in December. I am very happy for her. I believe this could be an option for you as well.

its sad that you had such a bad time. But you can get pregnant even with single tube if You have at least one functioning ovary, You have monthly menstrual cycles, Your remaining fallopian tube is healthy. Please visit to a doctor or clinic for more details.

Hello, dear! Do not be sad with what you are experiencing now because it is not you only who are into this kind of situation. Many have overcome this challenge and you should be one of those. Do not give your self a stress. Talk to your doctor about other solutions of having a child if your case about infertility is final. Wish you all the best!

I believe that your doctor can lighten up your mind. You need to be strong to face the truth. But do not forget that there is a solution to every problem. Stay positive!

In your case Paula, if you are about to lose hope, try to consider IVF or surrogacy. Many couples have tried it and they have a baby now.

Oh dear, Lots of love for you. It seems that you are not native. you have to be very strong in the situation. You are really brave that you are facing all this. I am also infertile. I am having all the treatments to resolve the problem. But nothing is working on me. This is the reason I am here. I am only 30 years old. I also have the PCOS background. Which recovered with the treatment. Should we go for surrogacy? Please guide me.

Hey dear, Its very sad to know about your present situation but there is no need to feel so stressed or down as you have many options by which you will conceive as you have one fallopian tube open so there still have a chance to conceive. You need to concern the fertility experts. They will definitely guide you better. You know 1 of my friends suffered from the exact situation and she got the treatment from the clinic located in Ukraine and got very good facilities at very reasonable rates and now she is 6 months pregnant. Hope you will also got the good news very soon.Good Luck!!!

I am planning for surrogacy now. I find this method easy and safe to become a mother. I am trying for a baby for 12 years. This was the long and painful journey. We both love kids. We started trying for a baby right after our marriage. We have a strong love marriage. We know a baby can create a strong bond between parents. This is why we are here. We have visited a fertility clinic. That is in Ukraine. We personally visited that. It seems we do not need to wait for a new baby now.

Hello, dear. As usual it takes more than one year to get pregnant. But in your case I would recommend you to consult the fertility specialist. I also had one of my tubes removed. My doctor kept saying me that I will get pregnant soon, we just have to TTC. To say truth, I regret I didn’t consult one more specialist. I was just wasting my time. After 6 years TTC my husband was so angry and frustrated. He has taken me to the reproduction center because we had no time to wait. I was 35 at that moment. Unfortunately, we are not getting younger. As a result we found out that we have 0 chances to conceive. But, anyway, we became parents with the help of surrogacy. Thank God my eggs were still valid. Don’t repeat my mistake. I guess it’s time to ask for help.

Hi Paola,
I've been here too. I still am. Mine is not a case of blocked tubes or anything though. I just have not had any luck conceiving since my MC two years ago. My GP has referred me to a fertility expert but I do not feel like it. I would advice you to not wait too long before seeking treatment hoping that you will conceive naturally. That will just kill your spirits like it has done me. Ask your gynae to refer you to an expert. GL to you

Hey, dear, I am sorry to hear about your situation! My case was completely different yet my doctors managed to get me pregnant through IVF with donor eggs! I had premature ovarian failure, and was devastated to know about my infertility! But this clinic was surely my ace card to get through it victoriously! Try considering options like IVF or egg donor or surrogacy in good clinics around the world, You will definitely come out with a solution! good luck
