Post subject: HSG?!
hello, Ive been trying for a baby for nearly 2 years now following an ectopic pregnancy and losing one of my tubes. we have been seeing a specialist for the last few months and have been told im deffintly ovulating, ive just had an hsg test done today and was told my remaining tube was fine and the dye went straight through. in decemeber I have to go in for an operation because they think something is sticking to something else where it shouldn't, possibly endometriosis. anyway my question is, if my tube is clear and im ovulating, would endometriosis stop me from getting pregnant? maybe im being nieve but surely if that's the case then I don't see how the egg and sperm cant meet, even if my tube is stuck to something inside?

thanks you the replys x

If you have endo then it can adhere to many different areas so even if you are ovulating and your tube is clear it could be in an area that's stopping the egg getting into the tube, endo can also cause adhesions that won't always show on an HSG.
It could have caused adhesions on the outside of the tube that may be pulling the end that grabs the egg away from the ovary as well.
I had a lap about 7 months after my reversal and found out that my only tube was being pulled so far over to the left by an adhesion that there was no way it could have grabbed an egg from the ovary on that side Rolling Eyes sometimes there can be a kink or a twist as well, my cons explained it as a bit like a kink you can get in a hose pipe, when you turn the water on full it might force it's way through and come out the other end like the pressure of the dye can open the tube up, but then if you turn the water to a trickle without that pressure the hose sort of collapses back down and the same can happen with a tube and then the sperm and egg can't get through. A lot of the time these little kinks or twists are caused by removable adhesions as well.
I also had a blockage so didn't have dye spill on my HSG but even if I hadn't had that I wouldn't have been able to conceive until my adhesion was removed as your tubes need to be able to move freely.
The good news is endo can often be removed and adhesions can too, I had mine on my tube removed and when I had a later op that hadn't come back Smile
It's good that they're doing something about it though rather than fobbing you off and hopefully once they see if there is a problem they can treat it there and then and you can get back to TTC, Good luck with the op xx

thank you, that has helped a lot. i understand it a bit more now. I think I was just getting my hopes up that this will solve our problem, but I suppose I wont know until either I get pregnant or my op in December. fingers crossed I pregnant before December, but not holding much hope as its already been nearly 2 years Sad
