Not sure if you click on my name you can see what I've previously posted, but you can increase your chances with supplements. I have posted a lengthy list somewhere on here!
I have had a bilateral Salpingectomy - this is due to the fact that the fluid in your tubes is thought to be harmful/toxic to embryos, even though it is harmless to you. It can increase your chances by a small percentage. IVF no 4 was successful. It worked for me, but I also took supplements:
Vitamin C 1000 mg, Selenium 200 ug, Zinc - around 15 mg and Iron minimum 15mg. Coenzyme Q10 2 x 35 mg, L-Arginine, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), Evening Primrose Oil (14 days on - from 1st day of period, 14 days off- from ovulation), B6 for help with progesterone production and B-Complex, plus a regular fertility supplement that contains L-Arginine (like Pregnacare). Lots of water to flush out the ovaries. Royal Jelly 3 x 500 mg and Bee Propolis 1 x 500 mg.
IVF can be even more successful with these basic supplements added to your diet.
I hope you can get some help soon, please don't give up... some couples don't even get a 15% success rate and the more you do IVF, the more your chances can go up.
Good luck x
