I had a myomectomy & never had any STD to block tubes only big fibroids, tubes were swollen after myomectomy will swelling interfere with ttc?

I had a myomectomy & never had any STD to block tubes only big fibroids, tubes were swollen after myomectomy will swelling interfere with ttc?

Depends: If swelling of tubes are from fibroids blocking blood flow then the swelling should reduce after surgery. If tubes are patent then you should be able to conceive.
