Infertility

It just isnt fair! :(

So, this past Friday I had a Laparoscopy done to try and open a blocked fallopian tube. Come to find out, both tubes are block. Not only that but one of them has a hole in it and neither one of the tubes have fimbrial on the end of them! He said that he could not fix my fallopian tubes and that the only way we are going to be able to conceive is through IVF! My husband has been very supportive through all of this to...thankful because I just don't know what I would do without him. Now I am having a hard time finding a good fertility doctor in my area. Is anyone on here from Alaska? If so and you know of a good fertility doc please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it.  :)

    I'm not from AK, but know someone who is going to the Anchorage Women's Clinic.  HTH!

  • I don't know of any doctors in your area, but I seem to remember there was someone else on the boards from Alaska. If I remember correctly I think she went to an RE in Seattle. They would work in conjunction with her regular OB for monitoring and then she would fly down to Seattle for the egg retrieval through the transfer.

    Hope that helps! Good Luck!
