Firstly congrats to all the ladies & gents celebrating recent BFP's...massive hugs to all those still waiting for theirs, still waiting to start or still recovering from unsuccessful attempts or recent losses xx
Sorry for long post but need some advice....I've been diagnosed with bilateral hydrosalpinx and advised at least one is 'terminal'
Removal of both tubes has been recommended to help IVF success and surgery scheduled...however, I'm convinced i had a chemical pregnancy back in January 2015 (i was on the pill at the time but had had the noro virus at the start of the month... but looking back was incredibly tired, felt sick some mornings but put it down to the stressful job i hated at the time)
When I came off the pill for my break (which i ran back to back with another pack over xmas and my birthday) i had incredible period pains, a very heavy flow and clots, which I've never experienced before. I went to the doctors and she put it down to an 'abnormal period' and heavy flow and gave me drugs in case it happened next time..therefore its' never been confirmed or documented.
It was only when i went for my pill check a couple of months later that the nurse confirmed it sounded like a chemical pregnancy.
If it can happen once, can it not happen again naturally?!
I'm haunted by what ifs because of it and wished I'd realised and tested...I know it may have ended in the same result at OH has poor semen analysis results and abnormailities but if it hadn't...(baby would be 2 this September it hadn't...)
Sorry to rant, just need some objective opinions on whether removing my tubes (and therefore the chance of EVER having a natural pregnancy) is too hasty IF i have conceived naturally before??
