many of you know me but for those who dont a quick history. I have been pg 3 times the first ended with an ectopic that ruptured the second 3 months later that ended in miscarrage and 4 weeks after that i found out that i was pregnant with my son. ( i was pg 3 times in 6 months) this all took place in 2005 last year i was treated for cervical cancer and had surgery. now we have been ttc for 13 months. i went in for my 1st infertility appt yesterday and the dr feels that my cervix is scared and with the concern for my tubes being blocked or scared he wants to be sure that they are clear before considering an iui. however, he tried to dialate my cervix yesterday in the office and he couldnt bc it was so painful from the scaring. so he said there is no way he will be able to do the hsg. so he wants to do a laprascopy and and be sure that everything is clear and do a procedure simialr to an hsg while hes in there but he will actually watch the dye spill from my tube. im so torn i dont know what to do. does this seem like hes really doing all he can or does it sound to far....... i really dont know what to think i really wasnt expecting it i thought I would get some meds and go on my way.

help what do you think

I think it is a good idea to check the tubes before trying IUI. And since he can't do the HSG I think he has a good plan going with the lap.
Good luck hun! I hope you get your BFP soon!

I think your dr is moving in the right direction. There's no point in doing an IUI if your tubes are blocked - you'd be at a higher risk of another ectopic.

Good luck and I hope those tubes are perfect!!!

Not just that, if you couldn't tolerate dilation in the office, you won't be able to tolerate it for the IUI. The scare tissue may also prevent the natural passage of sperm into your uterus. It sounds like your Dr. is very thorough and has a good plan.

Good luck to you and your next miracle!
