Preparing for a Lap and Dye and Hysteroscopy procedure for infertility investigation
As part of my treatment program for secondary infertility, my fertility specialist wanted to check that everything was healthy structurally within my womb and most importantly my fallopian tubes. That meant in my case having a surgical procedure done to go and properly take a look at everything. So I was booked in for a ‘Lap and Dye’ procedure and a Hysteroscopy.
- That I don’t have a septum in my uterus, as one ultrasound has shown there has been one (despite no other scan having shown one),
- That I don’t have endometriosis. Again we were pretty sure I don’t have endometriosis as I don’t have any of the markers for it but nothing is ever impossible.
- That my fallopian tubes were clear, this was the most likely other issue that could have been affecting my fertility and there was no point continuing onwards with taking ovulation-inducing medications if any egg I managed to ovulate was stuck in a blocked fallopian tube.
