You had an HSG and your tubes were clear? If not, that would be the next step. Also, start tracking your BBT and see if you ovulate. Check out fertilityfriend.com for advice about charting. Are your cycles regular? If your doctor screened you for infertility, you might want to have your husband do an SA as well, just to be safe. Then, I would probably go to therapy…you’ve been holding onto a lot of guilt for a long time. That stress might be affecting you. Abortions shouldn’t affect fertilty later on, but psychology plays a roll.

@punkin83:  I’m so sorry for all the stress you are under! 

To answer your question simply, yes, you can do IVF with blocked tubes. It basically surpasses that organ entirely. 

The first thing I would recommend is reading taking charge of your fertility. You should consider charting your cycle as it will give you a good picture as to if things are working well hormonally… Have you ever used ovulation predictor kits? Those may help you as well.

that being said, given your history, I’d REALLY recommend going to a reproductive endocrinologist. He or she will know the ins and outs of fertility ONLY. An ob/gyn deals mostly with pregnancy and anatomical female issues. It’s expensive, but they really do know what they are talking about and that’s who you would need to see in the meantime. 

while you are waiting for your appointment, I still think you should chart your basal body temperature to get an idea of what your body is doing. Big hugs!!! Baby dust to you and your hubby 🙂

Sorry for the double post. I echo everything glittermoon said, especially joining fertility friend & possibly seeking counseling. Try not to be so hard on yourself. You are putting a lot of pressure on yourself; you made a choice that was best for you at the time in your life and you wouldn’t be who you are today without it.

@punkin83:  Does Darling Husband know about your abortion? Do you want him to know? You should just come clean to him and let him know what your concerns are.  He sounds like a loving person/DH.  Having his support it’s very important, you don’t want to go through this by yourself, specially if there is something wrong in the reproductive department.  Also, i agree with PP above, you should start charting yourself and all that, to see when you are ovulating and if you are even ovulating.  Best wishes and GL 🙂
