I had a TAC fitted on Tuesday - a transabdominal cerclage - which is the highest up stitch you can have to try and help avoid miscarriage. It is so high that it is done through the abdominal like a c section, then the stitch is put in around the very top of the cervix.
I've needed this done as I only have about half a cm of cervix left following a cone biopsy to remove abnormal cells in 2010.
2 weeks after the cone biopsy I had a haemorrhage- infection.
It was only this year that I found out after 3 years of trying to conceive that I have no cervix left and both my Fallopian tubes were blocked by the infection.
Now I've had the TAC fitted to deal with my cervix, I can now have ivf to bypass my tubes.
It is a very painful procedure to recover from but anything is worth it in trying to conceive.
I've already had a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy and a HSG 3x this year.
I'll be starting my first round of ivf in October x
