Hi All,

I'm brand new to this forum. I have a 17 month old. When my husband and I were trying for #2 this past Spring I got pregnant with an ectopic. I had to have emergency surgery and have one of my fallopian tubes removed. We tried again with no results. I saw a fertility doctor over the past week and a half and was told I have low ovarian count and that my remaining tube is blocked. The prognosis seems that I will need to get my remaining tube removed and go for IVF. I trust and believe that God is always good and will give me more children. I'm also searching for answers.

I heard about this place called Clear Passage where they remove blockages. Is anyone familar with them. Before trying them (they're very expensive) I'd like to talk to someone with knowledge of them. Also, has anyone had success with holistic approaches to blocked tubes.

Thanks so much!

I'm sorry, I don't have any answers for you. I just hate that the count is building up so high for readers, but is at a zero for replies. I know that can be frustrating when you're waiting for answers. I'm no help, but I did want to let you know that you're being heard, and that we ARE here, just nobody with any info has seen your post yet <3

I'm not sure I really have any answers, either I'm sorry you are having these struggles.

If you don't mind my asking, how old are you? When you say you have low ovarian count...to what do you refer? Your plan probably depends heavily on those things...if your ovarian reserve is low and your egg quality isn't great, IVF might be a great option for you. Do you know if insurance will cover any of these options?

SOrry for all the questions...maybe if we can get some brainstorming going it will get others into the conversation and we can come up with some ideas!

Hello Brand - welcome. I am sorry for your loss I do not have experience with blocked tubes so I don't have any answers for you either on how to help that. Did the find the blockage via HSG?

"If" you have to go the IVF route there are many many success stories. Don't look at that like a downfall. Look at it like an amazing opportunity you may not otherwise have. It def hurts financially though but it is worth every penny when it works.

I hope you don't have to go that route though and you can get that tube repaired. Is it blocked from the inside or is there maybe endo around it screezing it?
