OB/GYN or Specialist: Most ob/gyn's will feel comfortable initiating the testing to check if you have any issues with your fertility. If things come back abnormal, they will refer you to a fertility specialist. Alternatively, depending on your insurance, you might consider seeing the fertility specialist directly. Good luck! ...Read more

HSG: Typically a test like this is not performed unless you have been trying to conceive for an extended period of time--typically a year for someone your age. A hysterosalpingogram, or hsg, is performed by instilling dye in your uterus, and seeing if it flows out of your fallopian tubes. Your obgyn can set this up for you if necessary. ...Read more

Hydrosalpinx on one side. Why do they recommend pinching off? Can't u get pregnant from other fallop tube? Fertility specialists please. Thanks

I've seen it: The fluid in the hydrosalpinx is hostile to the uterine environment so an embryo from the "good" tube doesn't implant. Through my experience when I have blocked or removed a hydrosalpinx from one side and the other side was open the patient usually got pregnant without ivf in 1-4 months. ...Read more

I was told by a fertility specialist that i didn't need my tubes checked because I have been pregnant 4 times in the last 4 years. Could they have gotten blocked since my last pregnancy (11 months ago, miscarried)?

Unlikely: It is unlikely that your tubes for blocked working last 11 months unless you had severe pelvic infectio during that time. ...Read more

Can i get pregnant after having my tubes clamped?

Yes: The simple answer is yes. You can have the 'clamps' removed and the tubes re-anastomosed (put the cut ends of the tubes back together). Unfortunately, the pregnancy rate is lower than someone who has not had their tubes previously 'clamped'. Additionally, there is an increased risk of ectopic tubal pregnancy (pregnancy in the tube). ...Read more
