I would like to take precious guidance regarding my current health issues. I am married since five year, trying to conceive and my current age is 32 years. I was suffering with Endometriosis Grade IV and went once for laprotomy followed by IVF treatment in May 2014 in that cycle 32 Eggs were retrieved among them 16 were fertilized. In this fresh cycle, my doctor did ET with beautiful 3 blastocyst and rest embryos were preserved. After first ET failure, my doctor performed FET with 3 embryos using Embryo Glue but again we got another failure. Before starting next Fresh IVF cycle, first went for HSG. But unfortunately HSG result showed huge Hydrosalpinx in both Fallopian tubes. After that my doctor planed for tubal ligation through Laparoscopy. Due to frozen pelvis fallopian tubes were totally inaccessible for tubal ligation so my doctor performed only ostial closure through burning. After complete recovery (3Months) my doctor again planed for FET. Now days I am quite worried, afraid about success of subsequent cycle. Please guide and let us know if any thing further required for our successful result. I will go for Fresh IVF cycle or try with Frozen Embryo again after this situation.
Thanking you for your valuable time
Best regard
Mrs. Shashi

Welcome to e health forum.

I understand your predicament here.

Endometriosis is a very troubling condition which can affect the fertility chances of a woman and cause immense psychological and personal trauma.

The condition causes severe scarring related defects which result in difficulty in various aspects of becoming pregnant - including - conception, implantation of the embryo and even maintainance of the implanted embryo.

The previous procedure of Embryo transfer - probably failed due to the inflammatory status in the fallopian tubes, which lies near to the site of implantation. But with blockage of the fallopian tubes by your doctor, the chances of future Embryo transfer procedures succeeding would be higher.

You have been very patient and have been following your doctors suggestions and you are probably at the verge of giving up due to the continuous failures. But it is not advisable to give up at this stage.

Take your own time, seek proper counselling with your doctors and take support from your spouse and family members.

Relax and release all your stress. The chances of these procedures to succeed is more when you are stress free. This is due to the fact that stress can include hormonal changes that can result in reducing your chances of implantation.

Consult with your treating doctor and take her into confidence and continue treatment (Frozen Embryo Transfer), and soon you will be able to have a successful pregnancy and a healthy child.

I hope this helps.
